First released was the Rapha backpack, and since then they are back but in a larger size for those long commutes and hauling your goods. Same design and fabrics as its predecessor, the Rapha Large Backpack adds additional features that the original size does not have.

For those days when the roads get a bit wet, drum brakes on the front and rear have been added as a effective braking system.

Aiming for a clean look, the Level City Bike brake and gear cables are routed through the frame. Finishing the bike off, two narrower tubes were used instead of a one crossbar, this leaves enough space for a standard briefcase, one that is provided by Brooks.
