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 everyday jersey! This is a great jersey for long days in the saddle. The cut is comfortable and the materials are soft against the skin. There is just something about a Rapha product that is hard to describe - in a good way. Suffice to say I just bought another one. Has become my favorite jersey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and value! I'm 6'1", 190lbs, 40in chest, athletic build. Overall fit is excellent, but if I was being nitpicky I would say it could be just a touch longer all round for my frame. It's a high quality garment. Small zip pocket a bonus to keep credit cards/ID/cash in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice fitting lightweight top quality jersey I have worn this jersey on a weeks commute and a couple of 100k+ weekend rides, its more loose fitting than my classic jersey in the same size, bags of room in the rear pockets, my last ride had tube, pump, gillet, phone, cliff bar and a sandwich in the rear pockets and it held really well, none of that awkward bouncing around or pulling the neckline back you get in some jerseys, its the usually good quality rapha provides and nice understated markings which I like, very comfy to wear, nice and light weight, blocks cold winds very well, good length on the sleeve no gaps if wearing arm warmers, quality full length zip, an all round nice jersey. Its not as comfy as my classic jersey or as well fitted but a very close second,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Core Product Overall the Core Jersey is excellent, even though they are presented as a cheaper product, based on optimising innovative fabrics. Great material, Great fit and still retaining the Rapha finishing touches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Feel This material that this jersey is made from has a lovely feel. I also like the sleeves as they are not too tight. A large size is perfect for me but I can't believe that I am a large. The core knicks/jersey deal represents excellent value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value if you get the bundle This jersey fits well, and is comfortable. The anti-slip material on the cuffs and the waist works very well, and it stays in place. Surprisingly too, it is also odour free.

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.

Hi what is the sizing in comparison to the super light weight? reviews suggest it's boxier and larger on sizing? I'm a medium in the super light weight. 

Asked by: Sinjin
Hi, this jersey has a slightly more relaxed fit than the Super Lightweight jersey. We would normally recommend the same size, unless the Super Lightweight Jersey fits you quite loosely in which case you could size down one size.
