Classic design, perfected performance

A bestseller for over a decade, the Classic Jersey was Rapha’s first ever product. With an understated colour-scheme and an innovative merino-wool-based fabric, it was a bold expression of our mission to create the world’s finest cycling apparel.

Twelve years in the making, the Classic Jersey II has been updated with an improved fit, bonding rather than stitching to save weight, and an all new, proprietary merino-based fabric, RPM150 (Rapha Performance Merino - the 150 indicates grams per square metre). Unlike generic merino-blends, RPM150 is light, soft, breathable and adaptable to a huge range of conditions. Helping your body breathe in hot conditions and insulating when the temperature drops, we believe this to be the most versatile cycling fabric in the world, and it’s the product of Rapha’s tireless R&D.

“The best bike jersey the world has ever seen.”
Bill Strickland, Bicycling Magazine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly versatile and stylish jersey I'd coveted this jersey for longer than i care to remember but wasn't sure if i could justify the cost. In a recent moment of weakness i finally took the plunge and i am so glad that i did. The jersey is just sheer quality, the fabric is extremely breathable for hotter days, but the merino also provides nice warmth in more temperate conditions. The finishing is excellent and the cut is superb. I'm 6'2" and have a 39 chest, and the medium jersey is a perfect snug fit - i don't feel like i've been vacuum packed into it, but there's no excess material anywhere either. There's also no crumpling up at the front of the jersey when on the bike, but it doesn't rise up above the line of my bib shorts when off the bike! I wear this with the pro-team sleeveless base layer and the combination is excellent. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty much perfect Having been very much in the Italian/Swiss camp for Cycling clothing I wanted to give Rapha a go and read some great things about the classic 2 jersey - all I can say is that it is exceptional great fit great fabric fantastic attention to detail (pump tab in rear pocket) and for different reasons is comparable to the legendary Gabba as a perfect piece of cycle clothing - get one

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best cycling jersey I have ever owned. Quite simply the best jersey I have ever owned. Fantastic fit and design, great features without gimmicks, good choice of minimalist colours. Superb merino blend fabric. I now have 3 of these, replacing both my Brevet and Tricolour jerseys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for a spread of temperatures Good fit im a slim 6'1" and a medium fitted great. Nice feel to the material which worked well in the cool morning but wasnt too hot later in the day

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the subtle style! I saw a friend wearing this jersey and instantly knew that I had to have one because I loved the subtle style of it. But, now that I own one and have worn it on several occasions I can say that I also love the comfort, quality and fit of it as well. The merino wool blend is amazingly soft and it kept me very comfortable on some warm days (28-30C) and on cooler days (16-18C with a base layer). It seems to be very versatile when it comes to temperatures. The drawstring apparatus for the back took a little getting used to and I can't say that I've stuffed my pockets enough to need to use it but its presence shows a high level of attention to detail.

I bought this recently and would like to ask whether the left sleeve is really longer than the right sleeve, is this normal?

Asked by: Spyshadow
Both sleeves are equal lengths. There may be differences when worn due to individual riders differing physiology. Imbalances between left and right may cause the sleeve to appear shorter in some riders

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

Asked by: JDItaly
The Classic Jersey does have a silicone band running along the bottom of the garment.

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.
