Continuing their push to become more than just a clothing company, Rapha has introduced three new pieces to their luggage collection. Between the Day Bag, Bar Bag, and Roll Top Backpack, there are now more options for carrying your gear on your bike, your back, or on the way to the ride.
Starting with the Roll Top Backpack, this 25L bag is a classic rectangular shape with a namesake roll top closure. The outer fabric is water resistant and wear resistant, while you’ll find an inner padded laptop sleeve, essentials pocket, and a zippered exterior pocket for your keys. The daisy chain on the outer surface can be used to store a U-Lock, and padded ergonomic straps with reflective tabs keep you comfortable and visible. Available in three colors for $135.
If you prefer a bag with a little more organization that’s perfect to prepare for your ride or race, the Day Bag will pack the essentials. Again with 25L capacity, the bag is based on pro-level wet bags with a ventilated shoe compartment, three external mesh pockets perfect for bottles, four internal mesh storage pockets, and elastic loops on the top for helmet storage. The black only bag sells for $110.
Finally, the Bar Bag is a bag for your, well, handlebar. Want to take it with you off the bike as well? You’re in luck as there’s a shoulder strap to use as a cross-body bag. There’s also a third strap on the end of the bag which will allow it to be used as a frame bag as well. Each strap includes a quick release buckle, and the 2L bag has a quick access front pocket, two internal mesh pockets, and a DWR treated exterior. Sold in three colors, the Bar Bag sells for $65.
