Rapha sample sales set for Birmingham, Leeds and Glasgow

London-based brand to host three-day sale in each city

Rapha is setting up shop – albeit temporarily – in Birmingham, Leeds and Glasgow in the coming weeks as each city plays host to a three-day sample sale from the London-based brand.

Promising “drastically reduced prices,” Rapha says that there will be a full range of men’s and women’s items in all sizes including end-of-season goods and production samples.

Most items will be new, although there will be some customer returns as well as garments that had faults or were rejected at quality control.

It’s worth noting that unless you take an item back with a receipt to the same location where you bought it while the sample sale remains open, there is no chance of a refund or exchange on any items.

Rapha’s sample sales have long been a popular way for cyclists to snap up some of its gear at what can be big discounts – although with the launch of the Rapha Cycle Club chain and the Rapha Archive Store at Somerset’s Kilver Court outlet centre.
