Rapha Performance Roadwear will become the official clothing provider to Sky Pro Cycling from January 2013 as part of a four year agreement that will see Rapha provide a complete range of clothing and accessories to dress Team Sky – the world’s highest ranked team – both on and off the bike.
As part of the four-year agreement, Rapha will develop a full collection of top-end, high-performance racing and training kit and off-bike dress for both riders and staff. The Rapha offering will also extend to the best selection of riding and fan wear for supporters of Team Sky.
“We are delighted that, after only eight years as a business, we have been chosen by Team Sky, the world’s number one team, as their partner. We share their passion for performance and team ethic and are enthusiastic to inspire and engage a wider fan base around the globe,” – Simon Mottram, Founder and Chief Executive of Rapha.
Dave Brailsford, Team Principal of Sky Pro Cycling, said: “Team Sky has achieved this year’s level of success because of a strong and steady vision to find improvement at every level to help our riders win. I see Rapha joining us next year as another step in that direction. They share our ambition and vision for cycling.”
The full Sky Pro Cycling collection will become available for sale in January 2013 on the global Rapha online store (www.rapha.cc) and at select cycling retailers around the world.
