Thanks to the annual bargain-fest that is Black Friday, Rapha has reduced a huge number of products including jackets, jerseys, tights, gloves, accessories and more by up to 50 per cent, and it ends on Monday.
Let’s not forget, internet retail giant Wiggle also stocks Rapha, and is currently running an online archive sale of old stock, some with added discounts on top of the previously reduced prices, making some discounts an impressive 70 per cent off.
We’ve collected a few of the best below. Be sure to check out the full collection to see all of the deals!
Don’t knock the lobster claw ’til you’ve tried it. Rapha
Okay, they may look ridiculous but there’s merit in this ‘lobster claw’ style overmitt, and that’s serious warmth.
They may look bulky but they’re claimed to offer great dexterity for shifting and braking, and keeping your fingers next to each other generates warmth. At a quarter of the retail price, these are a bargain not to be missed.

Rapha Pro Team Race Cape
Featuring Shadow fabric, this Race Cape promises waterproofing, breathability and a great fit. Rapha
The Pro Team Race Cape is claimed to be waterproof, breathable and close-fitting, and loved by the EF Education First team.
It’s constructed around three-layer water protection and where neoprene once featured, Shadow fabric has now replaced it. It doesn’t absorb water so should feel lighter and less bulky than before.
Rapha Souplesse Race Cape (women’s)
£220 From £88
Rapha’s pro riders are reported to love this Souplesse Race Cape. Rapha
Much like the men’s Pro Team Race Cape, the women’s Souplesse Race Cape is constructed from Polartec fabrics, which are ideal when you’re in need of a breathable, waterproof outer shell. It’s said to be a favourite of Rapha’s pro riders.
Rapha Pro Team Long Sleeve Thermal Jersey
Warmth shouldn’t always come at the expense of weight, as the Rapha Pro Team Long Sleeve Thermal Jersey demonstrates. Rapha
Insulation often leads to bulk, so creating a garment that is both thermal and performance-oriented can be difficult. In designing the Pro Team Long Sleeve Thermal Jersey, Rapha’s solution was to use a slightly thicker fabric than that used in the Aero version.
It features a fleece inner lining for added comfort, and is designed with the dedicated winter trainer in mind.
Rapha Souplesse Thermal Jersey (women’s)
Rapha’s Souplesse Thermal Jersey is bound to be a favourite in the winter. Rapha
Similar to the men’s Pro Team Long Sleeve Thermal Jersey, this is designed to be less bulky than its competitors while keeping riders warm.
Cut in Rapha’s race fit and finished with the soft fleece brushed-back inner lining, it’s bound to please.
Rapha Pro Team Thermal Bib Shorts II
The Rapha Pro Team Thermal Bib Shorts II are claimed to be windproof and waterproof. Rapha
These thermal bib shorts are made from the same windproof and waterproof panels that feature in the Winter Tights, and can be paired with some leg warmers for rides when the weather is changeable.
Compared to the non-thermal Pro Team bib shorts, these have a longer leg and a higher cut to keep out the cold.
Rapha Women’s Classic Jersey
Nothing beats a classic, particularly when it’s made from performance Merino. Rapha
This Classic jersey is cut from Rapha’s RPM150 fabric, which is its performance Merino for an interesting new twist on a classic choice of wool.
It’s designed to be soft and breathable while providing superior moisture wicking. Its streamlined cut promises aero gains and makes a great jersey for any woman who’s setting out to win.
Rapha Lightweight Shadow Jacket
£195 From £97.50
Rapha’s proprietary Shadow fabric is claimed to be both light and waterproof. Rapha

Rapha Souplesse Bib Shorts II (women’s)
The Rapha Souplesse Bib Shorts II are the benchmark against which many other shorts are measured. Rapha
If you’re using a particular brand’s bib shorts to benchmark the quality of others, it’s going to be Rapha. They’re soft, stylish and seriously comfortable for all-day riding.
Available in four colours, the Souplesse Bib Shorts II come with Rapha’s Classic women’s chamois and has had its upper re-shaped and cut from mesh fabric that is highly stretchy, moisture-wicking and fast drying.
Rapha Souplesse Gloves
The Rapha Souplesse Gloves are stylish, dexterous and warm. Rapha
These gloves are designed for between-seasons cool weather, when your hands need to be covered but not overheated.
Their dual-layer construction includes the same water-resistant and breathable fabric used in the Pro Team Race Cape, and produces low-bulk and low-profile gloves with good dexterity. What’s more, the polka dot design looks good.
Rapha Souplesse Long Sleeve Aero Jersey (women’s)
Is this the fastest Rapha jersey ever? Rapha
