Rapha to open outlet store in Somerset

Cycling brand Rapha will open an archive store in Kilver Court Designer Village in Shepton Mallet, Somerset


With stores and cafes in both Manchester and London, premium cycling brand Rapha is to open an outlet store at Kilver Court Designer Village in Somerset.

Hard-to-find items will be easier to find in the store near Shepton Mallet, as will items that have previously been discontinued by the brand when the store opens in early April.

“A small selection of rarely seen items from Rapha’s design-archives are also on display, giving a glimpse into the company's history, from the initial, three-item collection of Rapha's launch in 2004, to R&D work produced for Team Sky,” reports the Kilver Court website.

Riders under the age of 18, who possess a British Cycling membership card will also be entitled to an extra 15 per cent discount in the store.
