A long sleeve version of the world’s greatest cycling jersey
The Classic Jersey was Rapha’s first ever product, launched in 2004. 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.’
Ideal on top of a base layer for off-season training rides, or with a windproof shell for tough winter cycling the jersey is made from brushed-back Sportwool™, a breathable and insulating merino blend.
A versatile piece that functions well in a wide range of temperatures, the improved and more streamlined cut and fit offer better on-bike comfort. A bonded font hem, zip placket and sleeve panel have been introduced to reduce weight and bulk, and the reworked pocket construction gives secure storage.
