Rapha Release a Full Cyclocross Collection for Extreme Riders

For those not familiar, Cyclocross is basically a form of cycling for sadists. A cross between road racing and mountain biking, CC enthusiast navigate their way across hilly, mountainous, wooded, muddy, obstacle-filled, uneven and unfriendly ground, pushing their bikes to the limit and dismounting when necessary to race on foot. Particularly popular in Europe, these adrenaline fiends now have some smart kit designed specifically for the sport. A shoe collaboration with Giro featuring a carbon outsole and tough cleats for running is the star of the show, all-black with hints of Rapha blue, its fellow collection pieces take a more outlandish color route. Two slim, lightweight, breathable, anti-bacterial jerseys sit alongside merino scarves, tees and socks designed for bike and non-bike moments, in a loud diamond pattern. Find the line here.
