A Classic Reborn

The Classic Jersey was Rapha’s first ever product. A bold expression of the company’s mission to create the world’s best cycling apparel, it changed the industry. Predominantly black and cut from an unorthodox merino-wool-based fabric, Bicycling Magazine’s Editor Bill Strickland declared it the ‘best bike jersey the world has ever seen.’

Twelve years in the making, Rapha introduces a new generation, the Classic Jersey II. Brought up to speed for 2016, this highly evolved design is cut from a new proprietary merino-wool-based fabric, milled to Rapha’s exact specification. Called RPM150 (Rapha Performance Merino, the 150 indicates grams per square metre), it is lighter, softer and more breathable than generic merino-blends, adaptable to a huge range of conditions.

Not stopping at the fabric, 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.

 

About the new RPM150 fabric

 

Rapha Performance Merino 150 or RPM150 (the 150 indicates grams per square metre) has been created to be the most versatile cycling fabric in the world. With a lighter weight than before for more conditions and climates, it has improved next-to-skin softness and comfort. Helping your body breathe in hot conditions and insulating when the temperature drops, this fabric is a product of Rapha’s tireless R&D to create the world’s best cycling apparel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic quality Had never yearned for a Rapha outfit but after buying this and the matching shorts, some of the nice Italian kit I've worn seems a bit 'shouty'. Not cheap but you can really see where the money goes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool even under pressure... Road tested my classic II several times including a century ride. Was a mixed day which started over cast and ended getting up the 25 degrees. The merino material performed well in both conditions, never felt too hot even when the tempo up'ed. Also much appreciated is the black on black understated logo. Construction looks solid, rear pockets are ample, even for long rides. Pretty much a thoroughbred. Chapeau Rapha.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits like a comfortable glove Regardless of whether it's really hot or slightly cooler I wear this together with either a Merino base layer or a mesh one if it's hotter. The two work perfectly together to control body temperature and wick sweat. Put them on, ride and forgot about them so you can focus on your speed. Outstanding fabrics and fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Understated jersey, does what it says Beautiful to wear, subtle and classic to look at - I hate wearing branded stuff, so this is just perfect for me and the look I love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic remains a classic. After dropping some weight it was time to part with my old classic jerseys and since they've been the best jerseys I have owned it was an easy decision to purchase the Classic II version. The fit is perfect. I'm an upper end of a Large with a 42 inch chest, the fit is aero but by no way overly tight, It really is a perfect fit, with no sagging of pockets and is a perfect length being shorter at the front but just right at the back (I'm 5,9ft). I opted for the all black version, full on ninja status, looks great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st class comfort I bought this jersey for my Summer break and I must say I am highly enthusiastic about it: very comfortable even in hot Summer. Jut one remark about sizing : I am quite athletic kind of guy and needed an XXL whatever the sizing guide indicated.

Can you confirm whether the internal label with care instructions has been updated to read Classic Jersey II? My jersey arrived and looks like a classic II but the label reads Classic Jersey. 

Asked by: GazS
The Internal Label will say Classic Jersey and will not specify Classic Jersey II.

Does this jersey have the sticky band around in inside him to stop it riding up?  Doesn't look like it from the photos.  Thanks

Hi all, I have a brevet jersey in a medium, which as described is more of a comfort fit than a race fit. Would you advise to stick with a medium for this jersey. Would it be a similar fit or slightly more fitted.  Many thanks. 

Asked by: Pclarke61
Hi, we suggest that it is always better to refer to the size guide as far as possible. With the information you have provided, we would suggest you try a Medium as per your Brevet. Should you need to exchange, we have a 90 days return period on new/unused garments.

How does the classic jersey and shorts compare to the core and brevet?

Asked by: Seanfisher
Our Classic Range is our best comfort fit range, followed by the Brevet which is quite similar. Our Core range is slightly tighter and best explained as a fit between the Brevet and Pro Team.

Can you specify the difference on dimensions of size M versus size L. I ordered M size and feels like it is a bit tight on chest, neck, but I am afraid L would be too loose... I am 179 cm, 101 chest, waist 90. Thank you!

Asked by: RazvanC
With the chest dimension you have provided the recommendation based on our size guide would be to try a large size. We do have a 90 day returns policy so if the garment doe snot meet with your specifications then you are able to return the Jersey to us.
