Lightweight merino-blend cycling base layer for year-round riding

Designed for all conditions, including high summer, the Merino Mesh Base Layer offers high performance and exceptional comfort. Made from an updated merino-blend fabric exclusively for Rapha, the higher merino content provides excellent moisture management and natural antibacterial qualities, with further ventilation from a lightweight mesh structure. The Merino Mesh Base Layer has a dropped tail for a great fit on the bike, while flatlock seams and raglan sleeves ensure comfort. Finished with a Rapha logo tab on the chest.

For extra care machine wash in a garment bag to prevent any snagging on the delicate merino material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very soft and light This is my first base layer ever. It is very light, thin, supple. Very comfortable. I don't feel it at all. Very soft to the touch. Stretches very well and fits like a glove. I like it a lot. It'd be perfect if the lazy cyclist could just throw it in the regular wash :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Very comfortable, simply awesome. Used now in the Norwegian spring, and it is perfect as a little extra layer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect weight and moisture managment I use many of the Rapha 100% merino underwear, but sometime they are a bit thick and heavy in middle seasons. This Poly-Merino blend is the ideal alternative. Great fit and look!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Undershirt I bought this top 2 weeks ago and love it! Not too hot, not too cold with winter now being upon us in Australia and fits really snug! I thought i'd have a bit more give and stretch like the merino base layer but that's about my only gripe! And the fact that i've put my finger through it and made a hole :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best base layer out there IMO I was really disappointed when these base layers disappeared from the Rapha shop ... but am delighted they are back. The new colour is more 'dark fig' than purple which is just what I had hoped. The ideal complement to Rapha pink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique product Less of a string vest than previous versions but still breathes well. I use it for cold morning commute to work, warm afternoon commute home in Melbourne autumn/winter.

what is the expected shrinking after washing - the fit is great but a little short (I bought a Large and I'm 179cm tall)

Asked by: Berrons
The product, if the correct care is followed as per the washing instructions, should not shrink,

Hello! I'd like to know if the fabric is made from a yarn where the polyester and the merino are intermingled together or if the fabric is plaited: polyester against the skin and merino on the outside (or vice-versa). Thank you.

Asked by: Berrons
The fabric is woven together, so this is a mix between both the Merino and the Polyester.
