Rapha launches special edition Nomad collection for female adventurers

The psychedelic pattern is unique on each to reduce waste materials…

Rapha has released its new Nomad women’s collection with a wind jacket, cargo bib shorts, a bar bag and more, aimed at adventure riders. You can't miss the psychedelic patterns that Rapha says takes inspiration from the 1970s cycling boom.

“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,” Rapha explains.

“Named ‘Bikecentennial’, the event brought like-minded adventurers from all walks of life together for the journey of a lifetime.”

The collection for female adventurers follows on from last year’s Rapha + Outdoor Voices collaboration.

“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,” says Rapha.

The Nomad collection consists of: short and long sleeve technical T-shirts, wind jacket, cotton T-shirt, cargo bib shorts, bar bag, socks and cap.

For both individuality of each jacket and to reduce fabric waste, the psychedelic print design has also been positioned differently on all.

For days when riding is only part of the plan the Nomad Bar Bag has a hidden shoulder strap so it can be converted into an over-the-shoulder bag.

Anna has been hooked on bikes ever since her youthful beginnings at Hillingdon Cycle Circuit. As an avid road and track racer, she reached the heady heights of a ProCyclingStats profile before leaving for university. Having now completed an MA in Multimedia Journalism, she’s hoping to add some (more successful) results. Although her greatest wish is for the broader acceptance of wearing funky cycling socks over the top of leg warmers.
