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.

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 A classic A simplicity and elegance that belies the complexity that goes into designing and making what I think is the best jersey I have ever worn. What more needs said.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great versatile jersey I purchased it 6 months ago and it continues to be my first choice for long rides on cool mornings. I am 6'1" and 190lbs and the XL is loose enough so that I can wear a layer underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, stylish and excellent quality I'm 6'4 and finding gear to fit is sometimes difficult. I bought the XL Classic Jersey and I'm impressed with how good it fits. You can tell its quality as soon as you put it on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy I'm always trying to get as minimal as possible with my kit. This jersey does just that. The black on black special anniversary edition is perfection. The fit feels more slim than in the past. The feel of the fabric is softer, not as thick. I've only ridden it a couple of times but so far I'm impressed.
