Following on from last year’s Rapha + Outdoor Voices collaboration, comes Nomad. A new special edition women’s collection that speaks to the freedom of adventure on two wheels. Taking inspiration from the 1976 Bicentennial, it celebrates this golden era of cycling through the lens of female adventure.
The spirit of adventure runs deep in cycling. It also goes way back. 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. Named ‘Bikecentennial’, the event brought like-minded adventurers from all walks of life together for the journey of a lifetime.
Today, that same spirit runs right across the globe, with more people taking to cycling than ever before. Following on from last year’s Rapha + Outdoor Voices collaboration, comes Nomad. A new special edition women’s collection that speaks to the freedom of adventure on two wheels. Taking inspiration from the 1976 Bicentennial, it celebrates this golden era of cycling through the lens of female adventure.
Made for discovery, not speed, the collection combines performance fabrics and practical features with a stylish design aesthetic to keep you both safe and comfortable.
The packable Nomad Wind Jacket features a hood and adjustable hem, plus a reflective Rapha logo on the armband and rear to ensure you stay seen in low light conditions. The psychedelic print design is positioned differently on each jacket, adding to the individuality of each piece and reduces fabric waste.
Paired with the relaxed fit Nomad Cotton T-Shirt and Nomad Cargo Bib Shorts featuring mesh pockets, it offers a stylish yet functional option for all adventures. Complete the look with a Nomad Bar Bag with hidden shoulder strap that converts the pack into an over-the-shoulder bag, for days when riding is only part of the plan.
As with Rapha tradition, each item in the collection features a hidden story label with a passage that connects both the product and its owner to its original inspiration.
The Nomad collection consists of a: Technical T-Shirt (short & long sleeve), Wind Jacket, Cotton T-Shirt, Cargo Bib Shorts, Bar Bag, Socks and Cap, available exclusively at rapha.cc
