The Rapha/Sky relationship began in 2012 and has been a good one for both parties, elevating the brand while raising the style stakes in the professional peloton.

"Together, we have redefined performance and style in the peloton, both on and off the bike," Rapha founder and CEO Simon Mottram said in a statement. "It’s been an amazing ride so far and the success of the Partnership has been beyond expectations."

"For the next year Rapha will focus on the Research and Development projects that are already in progress with the team," Mottram said. "With several special new products due to be released in 2016, we now look forward to an exciting final season with Team Sky and celebrating the Partnership in style."
