Home / Community / Cycling News / The Studio Velo – Rapha Collaboration




Back in the summer of 2004, two entrepreneurs from opposite sides of the “pond” launched separate, but highly intertwined businesses, seeking ways to improve the sport of cycling on all levels.  These two passionate cyclists, both company founders, set off to start something new, something special that would break through the clutter and be ‘standout’ brands in their respective categories.

Ten years later, it is with great pleasure that Rapha & Studio Velo are collaborating on one of cyclist’s most treasured pieces of cycling apparel, the Pro Team Jersey.  This jersey, a staple in Rapha’s apparel collection over the past few years, encompasses performance and style in all aspects.  Match that performance with our eye for style and color and you have the official, first of its kind, Studio Velo - Rapha Pro Team Jersey.

This limited edition, one-time production run may set the stage for additional collaborations down the road. As one of fifteen dealers in the United States, Studio Velo is one of Rapha’s first and largest retail partners, attributes for which we are immensely proud.  This partnership is a significant part of Studio Velo’s success and we could not be more proud to launch the new Studio Velo – Rapha Pro Team custom jersey this month!


The Product:
The Pro Team Jersey is a high-performance jersey, with a lightweight, streamlined and durable fabric, featuring elements such as headphone cable loops and mesh side panels.  While this jersey is indeed made for performance, we have been selling the Pro Team kit for the past 3+ years to a passionate, performance-oriented rider, one who appreciates a well-balanced combination of fit and technical features.
