Patta and Rapha’s partnership aims to increase representation in the cycling community, working together to debut the Patta Cycling Team. The brand’s first cycling kit embraces Rapha’s extensive on-wheel knowledge through an accessible offering of co-ed sportswear garments.
The uniform aims to inspire the next generation of cycling talent, featuring a cartoon gecko logo designed by Patta’s Creative Director, Vincent van de Waal. The reptile reflects speed and style, placed above the team’s “one more road to cross” slogan in Sranan Tongo. In addition, co-branded lettering decorates skin-tight cycling tops, shorts, caps, and socks with a pumping first, representing Black inclusivity in the sport.
Take a closer look at Patta and Rapha’s cycling kit collaboration in the gallery above. The collection will drop in-store and online via both brand’s on June 23 at 12 p.m. BST.
