Lightweight merino-blend cycling base layer for year-round riding

Designed for all conditions, including high summer, the Merino Mesh Base Layer offers high performance and exceptional comfort. Made from an updated merino-blend fabric exclusively for Rapha, the higher merino content provides excellent moisture management and natural antibacterial qualities, with further ventilation from a lightweight mesh structure. The Merino Mesh Base Layer has a dropped tail for a great fit on the bike, while flatlock seams and raglan sleeves ensure comfort. Finished with a Rapha logo tab on the chest. Warm when damp but without the bulk of a full merino fabric, the natural antibacterial properties of wool keep persistent odour at bay.

For extra care machine wash in a garment bag to prevent any snagging on the delicate merino material.

  • Lightweight open mesh structure

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly thin base layer Read the reviews which said these were really thin but warm, and still wasn't prepared for how thin they were. But the reviews were right these are really warm and hopefully will last for a long time and not rip when you pull them off soaked in sweat. Bought 3 and use daily really good so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top class base layer Have used these base layers for a number of years now for three season riding and find them first class. The new ones appear to have a slightly different weave, but they are still excellent in use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and lightweight I'm a huge fan of the short-sleeve version of these Merino Mesh baselayers, but worried that the long-sleeve version would not hold up to the extra friction often seen at the arms and elbows. However, the new mesh material seems a bit more robust that the earlier version, but still (at least) as soft and warm as the older version. When the temperatures drop, this is definitely one of my favorite pieces of cycle clothing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good piece of kit, sizing guide needs correction I have 1.85 m and 80 kg and have initially ordered size M, which is what I am supposed to wear when looking at the sizing info (and the previous orders I have made on baselayers). However, M was way too small, so I have returned for exchange for size L. With this size it is OK, but still a bit short on the waist/back length (arms length is OK). In terms of quality of the materials and performance of the kit, so far all positive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Casual-use summer base layer I'm 6"1, 75kg and opted for Large. For me, body length is acceptable (not too short/long) but the sleeves do come up a couple inches short when in riding position. It's more of a casual fit, rather than a race fit, and a little loose around my sides and under arms rather than the tight 'hug' I've come to expect from athletic base-layers. If I was to buy again, I may opt for the pro-team version for a closer fit. I had intended to wear this with a jersey/gilet for weekend riding but given the slightly more 'casual' fit I'm now utilising it for my daily commute. And for that it has performed well. Initially the mesh material was thinner than I expected but had held up well to various abuses and provides an insulating layer in the colder mornings. It is see through so don't expect to get away with wearing this on its own! The merino/polyester blend wicks well, dries quickly, doesn't trap smells and washes easily with the rest of the usual wash. If your looking for a light, casual fit base layer for everyday use out of winter I would recommend.
