State Bicycle Team is releasing a capsule collection produced by Rapha for the 2021 Season. Each piece is adorned with the team’s signature tie-dye pattern adding to the unique style State Bicycle Co. Team is known for. The collection includes 2 of Rapha’s Classic Flyweight Jerseys (White and Black), a Technical T-Shirt (perfect for gravel riding), Bibs and Socks.
It’s the first year of the State Bicycle Team’s partnership with Rapha. “I couldn’t be more excited about how the project turned out. We want our riders to look and feel the best when they’re on the bike,” said Mehdi Farsi (Co-Founder, State Bicycle Co.). “Partnering with Rapha Custom couldn’t have been a better experience start-to-finish. Their reputation for high-level performance really speaks for itself.”
With the primary goal of getting the next-generation of cyclists excited about bikes, the State Bicycle Team will continue to focus on grass-roots events in both fixed-gear and gravel disciplines throughout the 2021 Season. “Being a massive fan of the athletes and teams that Rapha sponsors, I was jazzed when they wanted to partner with us. Our team is much much more than just racing, and we want to share our lifestyles just like the other Rapha teams do. Think of us as a brakeless version of the EF Team.” The State Bicycle Team will also continue its media efforts with the hit web series “Riding Fixed, Up Mountains with Pros”, featuring Rapha athletes Lael Wilcox and Colin Strictland in 2021 episodes.
Additional State Bicycle Team partners for 2021 include, Bell Bicycle Helmets, Hello Blue CBD, Easton Components, Vittoria Tires, Handup Gloves, Smith Optics, and Garneu footwear
