Rapha aren't exactly known for following the crowd, and there's no exceptions over the big sales period. First it was no to Black Friday, now the brand are continuing it's stance over Cyber Monday.
However that doesn't mean you can't bag one of the best Cyber Monday bike deals on some of its hottest items.
With a reputation for pricier, more exclusive apparel, it's generally accepted that you do get what you pay for. Everything from first class finishing and high tech fabrics, to quirky limited designs and co-labs with divers artists and influencers.
Over the Black Friday/ Cyber Monday long weekend, the brand tend to call a collective ride out, shutting up shop as a demonstration of it's boycotting the concept.
But just because there aren't any huge SALE signs hanging in Rapha's virtual, or actual, shop windows, doesn't mean you can't bag a bargain.
We've been ferreting in the Rapha back rooms and found some cracking discounts that are far to good not to pass on to Cycling Weekly readers. It's worth remembering that you'll still be supporting a brand that will make an impressive charity donation should the target Black Friday million kilometres be reached.
If you did ride rather than buy on Friday, maybe now it's time to reward yourself for all your efforts with one of these hidden gems.

Our pick of the deals:
Save $100/£85 Heavily discounted, these smart winter tights have an insulated chamois fitted in and have the additional bonus of reflective straps along the cuff of the tights. Boasting durable water-repellent treatment on the fleece-backed fabric, they are a great pair of tights for winter riding.
Save $55/£40. Taking inspiration from the hard-wearing bags that bike messengers use, Rapha's version is abrasion-resistant and the roll-down section allows you to stuff whatever you want into it. There are bike-specific sections for lights and lock. Great for commuting or even just nipping out to the shop.
Imperial Works Track Jacket: now £144 - was £180; now $225 - was $250
Save £36/$25. This wouldn't look out of place as an any-day-of-the-week light jacket, meaning it can be used whatever the occasion. Based on the knitted track jackets that Italian clubs used once upon a time, the merino wool blend provides excellent comfort.
