Rapha Cycling Club — the prestigious members only branch of the cycling brand — has reunited with Canyon for a second limited-edition collaboration, three years on from its first.

In a year that’s seen a sharp rise in people taking up cycling and embracing the sport’s culture, the two brand’s celebrate this and its long-standing partnership with the RCC x Canyon Ultimate CF SL8 DISC, a bike the two brand’s have dubbed: “the cycling equivalent of a supercar”.

Available exclusively to members of the Rapha Cycling Club, only 250 units have been made worldwide, with each model featuring artwork created by Rapha designer Patrick Mafham, boasting the Rapha Cycling Club’s famous colors of gray, pink and black. The accentuated racing stripes are joined by a sparkling paintwork and super high-gloss finish, created by the team at Canyon.

Blending low-weight (7.46kg) and supreme stiffness, this bike boasts a carbon fibre frame to deliver maximum velocity, while remaining perfectly suitable for a more comfortable and relaxed ride too.

The RCC x Canyon Ultimate CF SL8 DISC is available to buy now for Rapha Cycling Club members from the Rapha webstore now, retailing at £5,149 (approximately $6,880 USD).
