Founded by Simon Mottram in London in 2004, Rapha makes the world’s finest cycling clothing. For 15 years, our products have redefined comfort, performance, and style for cyclists from absolute beginners through to WorldTour professionals.
Through our Webby award winning website and our 23 Clubhouses across Europe, North America and Asia, Rapha has become a hub for cyclists across the globe.
Recent engineering efforts include Rapha Custom, offering anyone the chance to create completely customisable Rapha products using an innovative web-based design tool, and a new filtering engine for our product catalogue built on React and GraphQL.
We are now embarking on a set of major projects to re-architect our storefront application, using React, GraphQL, Contentful, and bespoke middleware built in Node.JS running on AWS Lambda. Our award-winning UI design is being refactored into a design system, to pair with our React front-end.
