Patta get in gear with Rapha

Having partnered with a number of non-cycling brands previously – most notably Snow Peak, British cycling institution Rapha has stepped outside the UK to the flatlands of the Netherlands. Working in partnership with established streetwear imprint Patta, a cycle-ready collection has been created, with elements of both brands at its core.

Patta and Rapha’s partnership aims to increase representation in the cycling community, working together to debut the Patta Cycling Team.

The uniform aims to inspire the next generation of cycling talent, featuring a cartoon gecko logo designed by Patta’s Creative Director, Vincent van de Waal. The reptile reflects speed and style, placed above the team’s “one more road to cross” slogan in Sranan Tongo. In addition, co-branded lettering decorates skin-tight cycling tops, shorts, caps, and socks with a pumping first, representing Black inclusivity in the sport.

The collection will drop in-store and online via both brands on June 23 at 12 p.m UK time.
