On testing the Rapha Women’s City Collection

The Rapha Women’s City Collection represents the diverse range of activities and lifestyle choices embodied by female riders, blended with an aesthetic that hits the mark in other social and professional environments. On testing a selection of items from the range for Bike Radar I was pleased to find that the collection also excels in terms of practicality. It was far more durable that we expected too.

Most garments include reflective elements for safer cycling at night and secret pockets for stashing your keys or phone.
