Just in: Rapha Essentials Case

Storage purse for your bike bits

Rapha Essentials Case

There’s nothing like a new product from Rapha to split opinion, and this Essentials Case is the latest in the company’s luggage range.


Made from leather, the inside of the purse has a small credit-card size pocket, and the main compartment is big enough for a tube, tyre levers, tools or even your iPod/iPhone or similar-size gadget.

The £40 purse has a zip, a ‘Bon Courage motto’ label inside and has bound seams which will apparently keep the contents dry.   

Look out for a full review in Cycling Plus magazine soon. Use the comments section below to let us know if you’ll be buying one.
