Rapha has debut its latest women-specific collection of apparel called Nomad that’s aimed at female cyclists who prefer the road less traveled.
The Nomad collection comprises short and long sleeve technical T-shirts, a wind jacket, a cotton T-shirt, cargo bibshorts, a bar bag, socks and a cap, emblazoned with a psychedelic print that Rapha says pays tribute to the 1970’s Bike Boom.
“In 1976, American cyclists from across the continent decided to honour their nation’s 200-year anniversary with a 4,250-mile bike ride from Astoria, Oregon to Yorktown, Virginia,” Rapha explains.
“Named ‘Bikecentennial’, the event brought like-minded adventurers from all walks of life together for the journey of a lifetime.”
The packable Nomad Wind Jacket ($190) features a hood and adjustable hem, plus a reflective Rapha logo on the armband and rear for safety in reduced light conditions. The relaxed-fit Nomad Cotton T-Shirt ($90) and Nomad Cargo Bib Shorts ($270), with mesh pockets also balance style and function for road and off-road riding. The Nomad Bar Bag ($75) — with a hidden shoulder strap that converts the pack into an over-the-shoulder bag — is a useful twist on bar-mounted and wearable storage space.
Each product features a hidden story label with a passage that is said to connect the product to its original inspiration.
The Rapha Women’s Nomad collection is available from the Rapha website.
