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 Beautiful Jersey Fantastic fabric and fit. Functions well in all temperatures. I bought the black one and it looks fabulous in a sea of multicoloured jerseys. Coveted by many.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and beautifully made A high quality jersey with nice details and very stylish. Luxurious fabric is like nothing else I have owned. Great colours. I ended up buying another one in a different colour about a month later I liked it so much. I am about 178cm and 76kg and the Large fits me in a snug athletic way. I do have a larger chest and upper body (ex swimmer) than most, so a medium might be better for many people my height.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice feel and good look Great Jersey with some nice features. Typical Rapha quality - you will not be disappointed. My only negative comment is that it is too short on the front. Just about covers my bellybutton.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best I sent a classic jersey in for repair. Roffe decided to replace with a brand new one. Amazing customer service that I knew about but I didn't expect this level. Awesome.

Wondering what jersey you would recommend for all day ride in sunny conditions that start off around 60F (15c) and climb into the mid to high 80's (31c), the classic II or the flyweight? Humidity should not climb over 40%

Asked by: TLow
Both Jerseys would be suitable for this type of change in temperature, although the Flyweight Jersey may feel particularly cold at the beginning of the ride

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.
