Performance Denim for City Cycling

Rapha Performance Denim

Engineered in Italy exclusively for UK biking purveyors Rapha, this denim is made with the city cyclist in mind. The stretch, straight-leg fit is cut with a high-backed waist and low cut front to accommodate pedaling action. Unlike regular denim, they have been tried and tested (across 1800 miles and 20 washes) for high resistance to abrasion, especially at key wear points, like the seat.

Thoughtful details include an inside-facing reflective "Rapha" logo that comes into play when folded-up; high visibility, signature pink binding and a reinforced rear pocket for a compact D-lock. Translation: these jeans look as good as they wear.
