For Spring/Summer 2015 the Pro Team collection features the Data Print, a unique collaboration that creates a little art from science. Taking ride data from an individual racer’s entire grand tour, a dynamic graphic was generated and applied as a repeat pattern. This data-driven pattern charts performance levels for each stage of one rider’s grand tour, with the resulting chevrons mapping distance, elevation gain and TSS levels.
In 2009, 2011 and 2014 with a women only team, Rapha set out to ride the route of the Tour of California. Journeys that took them through a multitude of conditions across the Golden State. Find out how they got on when they rode in the tyre tracks of the pros.
"One of the reasons the Rapha Continental came into being was to blend that effort more commonly associated with elite competition with the everyman’s experience: to suffer and test ourselves against our own limits."
