Women's Classic Jersey II, Bib Short & Merino Arm Warmers Bundle
WOMEN'S CLASSIC JERSEY II
The Classic Jersey was the first ever Rapha product to launch and epitomised the brand’s mission to create the finest cycling garments possible. 12 years later Rapha have reimagined the jersey, retaining its essential qualities of absolute comfort and function, but making it even better. The main component of this evolution is the fabric. Called RPM150 (Rapha Performance Merino, the 150 indicates grams per square metre), it is a proprietary material milled specifically and only for Rapha. It is lighter, softer and more breathable than generic merino-blends, adaptable to many conditions. The construction of the jersey has also improved with a reworked fit and sections bonded rather than stitched. This reduces weight and bulk even further.
WOMEN'S CLASSIC BIB SHORTS
Designed both for training and racing, the Women’s Classic Bib Shorts offer exceptional performance and comfort in a range of riding conditions.
Cut from a matt Lycra fabric (the same used in the regular Women’s Bib Shorts) that is both breathable and high wicking, the shorts use a chamois pad designed specifically for women and have a panelled construction to guarantee a superb fit. Flatlock stitching throughout means they won’t chafe, no matter how long or hard you ride.
The legs feature tonal Rapha logos and a new subtle, low profile, leg gripper that gives an improved fit.
The bib section is made from two different mesh fabrics, a close-knit mesh at the front to offer warmth and a breathable, open-knit mesh at the back. In warmer weather the bib section does away with the need for a base layer. Designed to be worn with the Medium Support Bra or the Light Support Bra, the back of the shorts also has a large cutaway section for maximum breathability.
MERINO ARM WARMERS
Made from a fabric developed exclusively by Rapha, these high-performance arm warmers combine the natural performance properties of merino wool with a degree of Lycra for stretch and durability. They provide insulation, are highly breathable and also transfer moisture effectively. The fabric is quick-drying so the arm warmers can be used in a variety of conditions. They are versatile enough for city riding and work brilliantly when paired with any short-sleeved Rapha jersey.
