    An exclusive collection of backpacks, messenger bags, sleeves, and more from cycling brand Rapha is now available from the online Apple Store and, starting tomorrow, Apple retail stores.

    Apple recently started carrying a selection of cycling gear like the SmartHalo Bike System and the Lumos Smart Bike Helmet, and it's now expanding that lineup with Rapha's accessories.

    The Rapha collection includes accessories that range from a $130 Mini Messenger Bag to a $150 Convertible Backpack to $65-$70 sleeves for the MacBook, MacBook Pro, and iPad Pro.

    All of the accessories are available in blue, black, or yellow with perforated accent striping, and are made from what Rapha says are "high-quality hardest-wearing Italian fabrics" that have been treated with Durable Water Repellent and "tested in extreme conditions."

    The Mini Messenger Bag and the Backpack include magnetic clasps that are designed to allow the bags to be attached to the handlebar of the bike, while the device cases include padding to keep your iPad or Mac safe. All accessories also have AquaGuard zippers in addition to the water repellent treatment to make them rain and spill resistant.

    Apple's full selection of Rapha-branded accessories are available from the online Apple Store starting today.

    Great! Now we can buy overpriced, underwhelming, Rapha products at the Apple store. Woohoo.

    Superb. As a cyclist (semi-pro I regard myself :) i'd say that Rapha is top quality and beautifully made.

    I've spent time at Rapha's head office in London And I can honestly say what a terrific bunch of young people they have there. It's an incredible buzz with young designers working on MacBook Pro's in every corner of the open plan office. The whole place had a fantastic, buzz, inspiring feel with a real laid back but 'can do' feel to its culture.

    I'd 100% say that Rapha fits in perfectly with Apple's ethos!

    I came away from that place truly inspired - it's a long time since i've seen such passion, attention to detail and love for what they do at a company! PLUS I gotta say, Rapha actually serve some of the best Espresso that i've tasted anywhere in the world and consider i'm a digital nomad who travels weekly, i'd say that i've tried a few places ;)

    Like Apple, you get what you pay for and Rapha is not overpriced they are in the same price league as Assos, Castelli etc and offer free repairs, free size down etc. Don't knock quality!!! The world is full of cheap garbage, Rapha IS NOT one of them!
