Rapha and ultralight bikepacking pioneers Apidura have partnered to create a collection of packs designed for adventure. Specifically built to attach easily to any bike, the Rapha + Apidura saddle and handlebar packs are lightweight, durable, and designed to allow cyclists to pack light and travel far.
The Rapha + Apidura packs signal a new product category for Rapha within the realm of long-distance cycling. This collaboration is a natural progression for the Brevet range, which already offers dependable, versatile apparel for long days in the saddle. Originally designed for Rapha staff to ride Paris-Brest-Paris, the Brevet collection consists of clothing which is durable, lightweight, versatile, and designed to withstand the hardiest adventures, whatever the weather. Apidura’s experience in making the best ultralight bike luggage on the market made for a natural pairing with Rapha’s Brevet collection.
Designed for accessibility and versatility, the Rapha + Apidura collection consists of a Handlebar Pack and Saddle Pack which can be attached to any bike without the need for racks. The pack material is a water resistant four-layer laminated body fabric which offers high abrasion and tear resistance and is incredibly lightweight. For visibility, reflective Rapha Brevet stripes and Apidura logos feature on the packs, and reflective yarn has been woven into all shock cords and outer webbing to provide additional visibility in low light. Anti-slip Hypalon, a synthetic rubber, has been used on all fastening points to keep the packs secure and roll-top closures allow for maximum storage capacity. The packs feature three-point attachments for security and the Saddle Pack has a bungee cord tie-down in the outer top. The Saddle Pack has a bike light attachment point. Rapha design cues feature in the Brevet stripes, hi-vis pink lining and an additional wet bag to store inside of the packs.
