Essential everyday jersey

Cycling jersey cut using a soft, light stretch fabric. It is shaped to fit the body perfectly in road-bike positions, with raglan sleeves and side panels for stability. Colour-matched throughout, the jersey uses high-spec finishing details, such as ribbed collar and cuffs, a concealed zip pocket and a deep, laser-cut rear gripper lined with soft silicone. Made of a fabric that has been treated with an antibacterial process, the jersey stays fresher for longer during your rides. With subtle Rapha branding and a low-profile left armband, the Core Jersey includes only the essentials.

“The Core collection is about optimising innovative fabrics and processes across the entire collection to reduce production hours and wastage. For example, the leg-gripper trim reappears in the jersey back, the material for the zip guard is used again on the sleeve tips, and bindings use rolled edges. This means we can produce Core garments without compromise, leading to a new standard for everyday cycling apparel.”
Alex Valdman, Head of Design

Reviews:

“For weekday training and commuting, Rapha have totally nailed it. Bravo all round”
Graham Hutson, The Times

“… against your skin the kit never feels anything less than premium – appropriately stretchy without ever feeling compressive, light and soft without feeling insubstantial. Astute features like the wide, but gentle, silicone grippers and an anatomic cut means you don’t have to give the kit a second thought once it has been donned – it fits well, stays in place and performs as it should. In short, it just works.”
★★★★½ Sam Challis, cyclist.co.uk

“… it's incredibly comfortable around the biceps and triceps, and sits perfectly against the skin thanks to the slim cut. It's small things like this that help reassure you the designers at Rapha know what they're doing.”
★★★★☆ Ash Quinlan, Road.cc

“The Rapha Core jersey is a relatively simple piece but it’s great for everyday road riding, whether that’s casually cruising round the lanes or a high tempo effort … the quality and attention to detail is excellent.”
Jim Clarkson, roadcyclinguk.com

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jersey I just got this jersey and I really like the features. It held up well in cold weather wicking the sweat away from the body. The pockets are deep enough that you do not have to worry about any item you put in there falling out even under any jarring terrain. The fit was true to size and felt comfortable in all positions on the bike without the worry of it riding up in the back. I am very happy with this jersey and plan to purchase more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality Great quality, breathable and lightweight. Even if from far it looks basic, once you look at the details and you wear it, you understand why it is different from other cheaper alternatives

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid performance from a well-made jersey This jersey features a great cut for long efforts on the bike, and looks great with understated styling and Rapha logos. The zippered pocket on the bottom right of the back panel is great for cards and other small pieces too. I appreciate the grippy bottom strip along the back, and although it often rides a bit (thus requiring a manual reset with your fingers), I don't think this is unique to the Core jersey. The jersey has also stood up well to repeated washes. Overall, a great jersey at a very reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fit & quality material My first forray into the world of Rapha jerseys and I've not been disappointed. The material is best described as luxurious, it feels great next to the skin. The cut is different for sure but works brilliantly. Yes the front is a tad shorter than any other jersey I've worn but on the bike this isn't noticeable and sits perfectly. The large grip seam on the back of the jersey really does the job, I've never had to reposition it. The pockets sit a bit higher than average but are super stable when loaded and aren't any more difficult to access. The valuables pocket with headphone access is excellent, just big enough for my iPhone 6, any larger than that and it would be a bit of a struggle though. Overall a great jersey for the money, lots of excellent details and the effortless Rapha styling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and comfortable Here's the info I wanted in reviews I read before buying: I am 5'9", 175lbs. My chest measurement is 44" and I'm 35" at the belly button (love handles more than belly). This Large jersey fits great, not too tight and the taper is good for a fit look. It's snug on my arms (14"), but really comfortable and good length. I'll buy more, this may easily become my go-to jersey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent all round jersey. I bought the Rapha Core Jersey to fill the spot between my lightweight jersey and my Classic. Would have to say it performs well and has all of the qualities that Rapha is known for. Commments about the pockets are warranted however are not a big issue. The longer sleeves are an excellent feature as this stops gaps for arm warmers and give a classic look. Don't procrastinate, just get one!

Want to buy my first Rapha jersey but have a small athletic build and want the best advice on Rapha's suggested jersey option and size for my build? I am 160cm, 62kg, 102cm chest, 80cm waist, 50cm back. Would the Core jerseys fit well?

Asked by: smorgan
Hi, based on your measurements this jersey should work well for you. You may wish to size down to medium so the jersey is not too long in the body. As always, we do have a free 90 day returns policy if needed.

Hi what is the sizing in comparison to the super light weight? reviews suggest it's boxier and larger on sizing? I'm a medium in the super light weight. 

Asked by: Sinjin
Hi, this jersey has a slightly more relaxed fit than the Super Lightweight jersey. We would normally recommend the same size, unless the Super Lightweight Jersey fits you quite loosely in which case you could size down one size.
