Essential everyday jersey

Cycling jersey cut using a soft, light stretch fabric. It is shaped to fit the body perfectly in road-bike positions, with raglan sleeves and side panels for stability. Colour-matched throughout, the jersey uses high-spec finishing details, such as ribbed collar and cuffs, a concealed zip pocket and a deep, laser-cut rear gripper lined with soft silicone. Made of a fabric that has been treated with an antibacterial process, the jersey stays fresher for longer during your rides. With subtle Rapha branding and a low-profile left armband, the Core Jersey includes only the essentials.

“The Core collection is about optimising innovative fabrics and processes across the entire collection to reduce production hours and wastage. For example, the leg-gripper trim reappears in the jersey back, the material for the zip guard is used again on the sleeve tips, and bindings use rolled edges. This means we can produce Core garments without compromise, leading to a new standard for everyday cycling apparel.”
Alex Valdman, Head of Design

Reviews:

“For weekday training and commuting, Rapha have totally nailed it. Bravo all round”
Graham Hutson, The Times

“… against your skin the kit never feels anything less than premium – appropriately stretchy without ever feeling compressive, light and soft without feeling insubstantial. Astute features like the wide, but gentle, silicone grippers and an anatomic cut means you don’t have to give the kit a second thought once it has been donned – it fits well, stays in place and performs as it should. In short, it just works.”
★★★★½ Sam Challis, cyclist.co.uk

“… it's incredibly comfortable around the biceps and triceps, and sits perfectly against the skin thanks to the slim cut. It's small things like this that help reassure you the designers at Rapha know what they're doing.”
★★★★☆ Ash Quinlan, Road.cc

“The Rapha Core jersey is a relatively simple piece but it’s great for everyday road riding, whether that’s casually cruising round the lanes or a high tempo effort … the quality and attention to detail is excellent.”
Jim Clarkson, roadcyclinguk.com

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I purchased the Core Jersey as a bundle and have been quite pleased with the value this jersey offers. The Core Jersey sizing is typical and accurate for the brand, so you won't go wrong using the sizing guide. The fabric feels like "regular" moisture wicking cycling jerseys and seems slightly thicker than some brands and thinner than others. I envision using this jersey during the hot and humid months, where the Classic series might be slightly too thick and heavy. Rapha has accurately positioned this line to be the 'everyday' cycling wear. The price point reflects this. It doesn't have the ultra-premium feel of the the Brevet or the Classic series, but it's still a premium product when you compare it against the competition. Rapha is also very good at the details, and partly why I like the brand and products so much. This garment is no different - it has the zipper cover by the neck, is a great value add, the stitching lays well and appears more tailored. The solid colors provide an understated look, except for the chartreuse - it's even brighter than it looks online. It's hi-vis, turned up to 11.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Exceptional Well Made Quality Jersy Purchased this jersey as part of a combo offer with bib shorts. The quality and design features are so apparent from the very moment you unwrap it! The features are great and styling is second to none. The fit is excellent, albeit a little on the small size, hence I went up a size. Great sleeve length and the materials are top end. Wears very well on the bike and the styling is iconic and simple quality. My new defacto jersey. Highly recommended. The adage that quality pays couldn't be truer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love The Pockets I could rate this a four for many reasons but then thought about if only bringing one jersey on a trip which one would I bring? This one! So, it gets the 5 star. Likes - the bright chartreuse color seemed to repel cars; the zip pocket is great for car keys; the pocket construction is bomber; the material has a great feel to it; I have worn it 4 times so far and stained it once but the stain washed out. Dislikes - it seems to bunch very slightly up by the shoulders/high back; it is on the short side though works fine with bibs but found myself struggling just a little to get my hands in the pockets.

Hi, I ordered and received the Rapha Core jersey XL. I am 195 cm and 82,5kg. The jersey is very loose on my arms and also loose at my upper body. As I have a large torso, I think a large will be to short. Can you advise another jersey:tighter/long enough

Asked by: PieterVW
Hi, our aero jerseys have a longer torso as do some of our Pro Team Range and also the Brevet.

I currently wear Classic II jerseys but find it to be to thick for 15c temperatures and above. Would this be more suitable or should i be looking at the flyweight jersey?

Asked by: MikeS
Hi, If you are already a fan of the Classic, then we suggest the Flyweight as this is more in keep with the fit of the Classic Jersey II but in a lighter and cooler version.

Hi I am very interested in the core bundle and am confident that I am a L in the core bibs but I think at a 42in chest I am right on the cusp of the L & XL in the jersey. I am in London later this month, is the bundle available at the Rapha store too? 

Asked by: MGF53
Yes, our bundles are available in store. Please mention this to the store when making your purchase.

Is the cut of the core jersey exactly the same as last year? I am a 37 inch chest and bought a medium core jersey last year but it was too loose.

Asked by: Booboo88
The Core Jersey is he same fit as last seasons. The garment has a light stretch fabric and if you find the fit is too loose you could ry a size down to see if you prefer the fit. We do have a 90 day returns policy if the garment does not meet with your suitability.

Hi first time getting Rapha products. Im 170cm, 68kg with 91cm chest, 85cm waist and 97cm hip. Would like to get the core jersey and bib bundle. Which size would you recommend for both jersey and bib?

Asked by: EricMY
Hi, based on your measurements, we recommend you choose a small in the jersey and medium in the shorts. As your chest measurement is on the edge of small and medium, you may wish to choose a medium in our closer fitting jerseys, such as those in the Pro Team range.

Want to buy my first Rapha jersey but have a small athletic build and want the best advice on Rapha's suggested jersey option and size for my build? I am 160cm, 62kg, 102cm chest, 80cm waist, 50cm back. Would the Core jerseys fit well?

Asked by: smorgan
Hi, based on your measurements this jersey should work well for you. You may wish to size down to medium so the jersey is not too long in the body. As always, we do have a free 90 day returns policy if needed.
