With eight days to go until Black Friday, the Rapha Black Friday sale has officially been switched on, with the brand offering 25% off across the entire site, as well as in its Clubhouses.
The discount comes courtesy of a promotional code that you can enter at checkout, which will be emailed to anyone who fills in the form found on Rapha’s homepage, presumably RCC members too.
Of course, to receive the code, you’ll need to give Rapha your email address, but given you’ll do that when placing your subsequent order anyway, it’s a bit of a no brainer given the savings on offer.
How to get 25% off at Rapha this Black Friday
Having run a few emails through the sign-up form ourselves, we’ve received different codes each time, so you’ll need to follow the steps above to get one that works for you.
Which products apply?
As far as we can tell, the discount will work with every product listed on the Rapha website. We’ve added a couple dozen test products to our basket and had no issues getting the 25% saving to apply on everything from winter jackets to socks.
It’s usually at this point that we’d add some disclaimer to say the discount will only work for full-priced item. That’s true, but only because there’s literally not a single discounted product on the Rapha site at the moment. The brand’s ‘Archive Sale’, which usually runs year round, was switched off a few weeks ago presumably in preparation for this.
Naturally, we’d recommend browsing the Rapha store to see if there’s actually anything you need (or want) to buy before you go through the process of signing up for the code. We’d also suggest comparing the Rapha deals with the products we’ve listed in our Black Friday cycling clothing roundup, just to make sure you’re getting the absolute best bang for your buck.
Rapha’s usual Black Friday tack
There are two things missing from this year’s Rapha Black Friday tack when compared to usual.
For as long as we’ve been covering Black Friday here at Cyclingnews, Rapha has fundraised for the World Bicycle Relief charity (WBR) and given its staff the day off. Called the ‘Rapha Black Friday Ride,’ the brand has previously encouraged its employees to instead just enjoy the outdoors, similar to the stance REI Coop takes in the USA, with its ‘OptOutside’ campaign.
This year, the Rapha Black Friday Ride isn’t taking place,…
