Rapha will become the official clothing provider to Sky Pro Cycling from January 2013. Rapha will provide a complete range of clothing and accessories to dress Team Sky.
As part of the four-year agreement, Rapha will develop a full collection of high-end racing and training kit and off-bike dress for both riders and staff.
Simon Mottram, founder and CEO of Rapha, said: “We are delighted that, after only eight years as a business, we have been chosen by Team Sky, the world’s number one team, as their partner. We share their passion for performance and team ethic and are enthusiastic to inspire and engage a wider fan base around the globe."
Dave Brailsford, Team Principal of Sky Pro Cycling, said: “Team Sky has achieved this year’s level of success because of a strong and steady vision to find improvement at every level to help our riders win. I see Rapha joining us next year as another step in that direction. They share our ambition and vision for cycling.”
Rapha currently equips the Rapha Condor Sharp team, a UCI Continental team co-founded by Rapha.
