High-performance cycling base layer cut for women riders

Rapha base layers are made from the highest grade of New Zealand merino wool. The fabric is extremely comfortable, wicks moisture superbly and is naturally breathable and odour resistant. The Women’s Short Sleeve Base Layer has been cut specifically for a female shape, with a neat, set-in v-neck that has a finer binding than the men’s version. Other features include set-in sleeves and flat lock stitching, designed to ensure the fabric won’t chafe and to eliminate rubbing from bib shorts and bag straps.


Given the versatility and the non-take-off-ability of the Rapha Women’s Sleeveless Base Layer, the price tag represents pretty good value. Merino is never cheap, and this garment certainly performs better than looser or scratchier merino products that have a slightly lower price point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love. Love. New to base layers and this one was highly recommended by my cycling friends. They were spot on. Living in So Cal you never really know what riding conditions will be like, either wee bit cool or wee bit warm. This base layer is perfect in both. I would highly recommend & fit is perfect. I wear a women's large in jerseys & the large this garment was spot on. I've already ordered more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best base layer for everyday I hope Rapha makes the Sleeveless Merino Base Layer forever! It is the perfect everyday base layer not only cycling, but for regular use. I wore it several times as an under layer without washing, and there were no odors whatsoever. It does a great job of regulating my body temperature, keeping me warm when I need to be warm, and cool when I need to stay cool. An essential and great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very comfortable Had one of these already, needed a second to avoid constant washing given increased cycling. Beautiful garment, soft, great fit, very comfortable to wear and does not leave you hot and sweaty like other lycra products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the right amount of warmth I've worn this several times and though it's light weight, it keeps me warm when it's chilly but is also very comfortable when the temperature warms up so I don't overheat. Based on another review, I downsized and got the XXS ( I usually wear XS) and I'm glad I did. It's a nice, very comfortable body-hugging fit which is what I wanted without it feeling at all constrictive. I even wear it to work under lighter tops for added warmth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Basic Piece Wore this tank top as a baselayer when I went camping last weekend. I was glad I had it because it was freezing out (at night) and kept me nice and warm on the inside. Really good fit, doesn't ride up, good style, and most importantly, warm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from really comfortable and great fit It hasn't really been cold enough for me to test this base layer fully, but I'm impressed with the fit and comfort. I'm quite tall and unlike many base layers, it's plenty long enough.

Hi, will either of these 2 colours show through a light coloured jersey? 

Asked by: Learner
Hi, this Base Layer may be partially visible through some lightweight jerseys.

Hi I am in between sizes (35-29). Would you recommend small or medium? Thank you.

Asked by: Josee
Hi, due to the natural stretchiness of the Merino fabric we would recommend the smaller size. Base layers are meant to be fitted to the body. Should the garment not be suitable, we have a free 90 days returns period.
