Of course Rapha is best known for its technical (and stylish) on-the-bike road wear, but they also make off-bike goods such as this made-in-Italy woven belt and this cyclist’s travel kit, which includes shaving cream, chamois cream and lotion — all travel size friendly.

Road cycling apparel maker Rapha was among the Eurobike award winners, receiving high accolades for its Long Sleeve Brevet jersey.

The two-piece package retails for $300.
