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.

FEATURES

  • Brushed back Sportwool™ fabric
  • Improved streamlined cut and fit for on-bike comfort
  • New construction techniques for cleaner finish and reduced weight
  • Reworked pocket construction for stable storage on long rides

FABRIC

  • 52% wool

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Jersey 9/10 I have bought the long sleeve Classic I jersey before, so I knew what too expect. Just wanted one in navy. All practical aspects are excellent. The finer features that let it down, albeit a little pedantic on my part, are the RAPHA logo on the armband (On previous jerseys this was embroidered. On this one it is that heat pressed material) and the visibility patch around the rear zipped pocket (I much preferred the version on the Classic I jersey).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cold weather jersey Nice heavy-weight merino-wool and lycra blend means that this jersey is perfect for those rides in temps below 15 degrees celsius. Great fit and rich color (I have the blue).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Jersey Ever I bought this especially for riding in the colder days and had my first outing last weekend. I went a size up as my Autumn/Winter under tops are a bit thicker. Very comfy to wear and i really noticed how comfortable it was after the cafe stop. It felt damp with sweat, but i didn't feel damp or cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and Great Quality but ... Same as the brevet. In a L its too long in the arm and too large on the hips. length is excellent. Ordered a M as fit is excellent but length is too short, although doesn't rise when sat forward on a bike it needs extra length to the front by an inch. Raise your arms and the bib shorts show. This may simply be my body shape on this occasion I'm 6ft 38/39 inch chest. Otherwise it is an excellently made product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit, stylish and functional Bought this jersey in purple and absolutely love styling and fit. It does look great: sizing is not tight, nor too lose. First outing on a chilly 5 degrees morning ride with 1 mesh base and 1 merino long sleeve base layer under it, and a brevet gillet over it... I was warm throughout, breathability was spot on and over comfort great. Love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jersey. The jersey does the job extremely well. It is a good fit, and aerodynamic. Just the job with the Merino base layer when it is cold; down to 6 degrees. My only concern, is that it is difficult to ensure you have the correct fit The sizing chart is not reliable. If I was to order another jersey, I will order two sizes and return one.

Hi. Dark Orange looks Red on website. Is it closer to Red or Orange ?

Asked by: ericb73
Hi, this jersey is a blend of the two colours, with a resultant reddy orange colourway.

The purple and dark orange jerseys have a white contrast armband in the photos yet the blue and black jerseys appear to have a complimentary colour band in nearly the same colour fabric.  Is this correct or do they ALL come with a white-contrast armband?

Asked by: Steve E Crane
Hi, the photos are correct. Two colourways come with a contrast white armband and two have a complimentary colour armband.

Hi, I have just bought the Merino base layer in XL. It is a loose fit. I have the Pro Aero jersey in XL and this is a nice tight fit. I want to buy the Long Sleeve Classic Jersey II. Which size would you suggest L or XL. I have a 43" chest and 33" waist.

Asked by: Paul67
Hi, the Merino Base Layers do come up large and we often recommend you size down. The Pro Team Aero Jersey has a close fit and the Classic Jersey II falls somewhere between the two. We recommend you opt for an x-large. As always we do have a free 90 day returns policy if needed.
