Rapha Continental: Tohoku from RAPHA on Vimeo.

The latest video from Rapha, Tohoku, has all the stylish signifiers you’ve come to expect from them, but this time the beauty is tempered by a sad and somber tone with riders winding their way through the tsunami devastated areas of the Oshika Peninsula. A redemptive narrative is interwoven by local swordsmiths who embody the spirit of a people who continue on despite the tragedy. This time the grace and effort of the riders are secondary to the power of the story. Well done, Rapha.
