Rapha has added a new All Day Leggings & Shorts to the women’s line-up in a distinct move away from cycling-only gear. The design and functionality is definitely inspired by traditional cycling wear, but has been tweaked to work just as well for a run, a yoga session, or even simply lounging around at home when we can meet up with our friends in town…
Rapha Women’s All Day Leggings and Shorts
A brand-new offering for Rapha, the All Day Leggings and Shorts are essentially cycling tights & bike shorts minus the chamois, and adapted to fit comfortably off the bike.
Rapha says the new non-padded leggings & shorts are meant to be worn both on the bike for casual riding, but should be as comfortable out for a jog, a run down to your local shops, chilling out in the park, lounging around at home, or stretching out post-ride with a bit of yoga. Both shorts & tights (OK, leggings) feature high-waisted cuts & silicone dot grippers so they stay comfortably in place no matter what activity you choose. Their soft, stretchy fabric is quick-drying, build to stand up to wear against a bike saddle, and includes recycled nylon fibers.
Leggings & Shorts include a deep right side pocket that will securely hold your smartphone or keep your small essentials in place while you get active around town.
Leggings also add classic Rapha flip-up hi-vis pink & reflective cuffs to boost your visibility before dawn or after dusk.
The women’s-only leggings sell for £80/ $110 / 95€ in all black, two-tone navy blue, or two-tone purple/violet, or £60 / $ 80/ 70€ for the All Day Shorts in the same color combos.
Rapha Riding in the City: City Ride Diaries
Developed to smooth the transition on and off-the-bike into everyday life and post-ride activity & workout, the All-Day line-up compliments Rapha’s full City Riding collections for both men & women – covering everything to commuter jackets to backpacks that can do double-duty riding or just walking around town.
To bring it all back together and highlight all the uses of the new All-Day gear, Rapha put together the City Ride Diaries of: Three cities. Three Riders. One day of urban exploration. Have a look as Sami, Okjoo & Nicole cruise around their cities, continuing to break down the boundary between our bike life and regular life, with a few new 2021 colors schemes thrown in for good measure.
