Rapha is proud to present a new special edition collection in collaboration with Australian cyclist Tiffany Cromwell. Ride comfortably in hot and humid weather, in an eye-catching kit inspired by the canyon//sram rider.
“Early morning bunch rides are a big part of Australian ride culture. I love watching the sunrise over the Adelaide hills as I’m riding down towards the beach to meet the group. We’ll do 100km full gas before 10am but then when you finish you feel so good about yourself – and the coffee always tastes better too.”
— Tiffany Cromwell
Tiff’s early morning training rides have provided the inspiration for the Ode to the Sun collection, which features a fade design reminiscent of a sunrise, brightening from deep navy to warm yellow. A pattern inspired by Japanese Asanoha has been overlaid on the fade. In traditional culture, the hemp leaves design represents growth and good health.
IT’S NICE, THAT
“Riding from my apartment in Nice along the coast towards Italy, it’s amazing to watch the sun rise over the water. Such a beautiful sight, especially when you have boats sitting out on the water too.”

The Diva from Down Under
Tiffany Cromwell is a specialist in the one-day classics, considered the hardest races in the sport. But it isn’t all about tough riding for the canyon//sram racer. Whether she’s enjoying some retail therapy on the Côte d’Azur, crafting a healthy gourmet dinner back home in Adelaide, or getting dressed up for a Monaco soirée, a day in the life of this Aussie road-ripper is never a bore.
Ode to the Sun is the first in a series of special edition women’s collections to be launched in 2018. Sign up to our newsletter to keep informed on the latest news from Rapha, including women’s rides and events, and new products.
