Rapha cheaper alternative

Postby p1tse » Sun Jan 13, 2013 01:17 am

Someone posted another brand which was slightly cheaper to rapha but similar in subtle design
Just can't find the post. Anyone know who I mean?

Interesting, I've never heard of them. Just looking now and they actually look pretty good. I like the styling. What's the quality like like though, anyone have it, tried it? Also same for the fit?

I've had a base layer, and a long sleeve T6 jersey off them. The qualities good, they have stood up to a few rides so far. Sizing wise I can't compare to Rapha, but if you give them an email they can help you out with sizing.

I thought Rapha and Torm were in some sort of legal dispute over trademark infringements?

I mean they are pretty much blatant rip-offs in design.

Wouldn't surprise me as even the website looks like a carbon copy of the Rapha shop website when looking at the items.
Pain hurts much less if its topped off with beating your mates to top of a climb.
