No doubt Rapha gets a premium mark-up on other brands gear. They used Giro shoes with slight differences and they are more than Giro.
That being said, their bib shorts are easily the best bibs I have ever used on the road.
Agree with this.
The Rapha Pro Team bibs are the best fitting bibs I've worn. I've had Sugoi RSX and PI Pro4s, no Assos to compare, but really comparing $330 bibs to $500+ isn't really fair. The Pro Team gear is sized like you'd think. The classic is a little easier for mortals to fit into. I'm wearing size small in Pro Team bibs and jerseys and Classic Jersey. The merino accessories on sale are a good idea/value, I have the merino knee and arm warmers.
Anyway it's super cool to hate on Rapha, TLD, Sombrio, Patagonia, Burton…
Why slag free swag?:rolleyes:
ummm, as your doctor i recommend against riding with a scaphoid fracture.
