A V-neck t-shirt with all the comfort and reassurance of merino.

Merino V-Neck Base Layer£45.00

Classic V-neck in trustworthy merino

A reliable merino base layer is as useful while hopping about the city as it is out on a club ride. It will regulate your body temperature and help keep you dry by wicking away moisture while natural antibacterial properties help minimise odour.

Rapha has used a thicker, softer merino on this year’s city baselayers, bringing them more in line with the road products. The Merino V-Neck Baselayer uses the same ribbed knit used on the classic baselayer fabric to ensure itch-free comfort throughout the day.

Seams have flatlock stitching so they won't chafe and are positioned behind the shoulders to avoid bag or bib straps rubbing while cycling. The base layers are close-fitting and cut long at the back for a better fit on the bike.

To maintain and protect your merino products we recommend using Rapha Merino Wash »

Rapha Merino Wash has been specially formulated for Rapha merino products, with a gentle action that cleans without stripping out the natural oils that are the key to merino’s performance. Used regularly, the wash will remove dirt and refresh merino garments thanks to ingredients that include Rapha’s Ventoux fragrance. Inspired by the plants and herbs that grow on the slopes of the ‘Giant of Provence’, the wash also has natural Cedar extract to help repel moths.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still a great shirt, previous style was better This is a great shirt. The fit is excellent. The material is nice and thin, and very high quality. I love that it's 100% merino and not a blend (I'm a purist). This style was updated recently (July 2017) and I will say that I liked the previous style more. The previous style had a brilliant curved seam from the sleeve armpits to the neck, whereas this one has a straight all around the shoulder seam instead. I also prefer the deeper V-neck in the previous version. Hopefully that previous version will be back next year. In the meantime, I will still buy and wear this shirt. I would love to have more shirts of this style in many more colors like brown, green, lime, olive, yellow, orange, maroon, purple, and more. I'm not a cyclist but I shop at Rapha for high quality 100% merino products. Thank you and please keep up the great work!

Hi The sizing chart only goes up to XL but the sizing goes up to XXL? I have an XL In the older version which was the largest size which fits perfectly, should I go for an XL or XXL in the new one?

Asked by: DDraughter
If the XL fits perfectly in the previous version we would suggest that you keep this sizing choice. We recommend sizing down for Base Layers

Is the fit the same as the pro team base layer i.e. tight or is this more loose which can also be used as a casual shirt?

Asked by: Erwin
This garment has a more relaxed fit and is not a race fit like the Pro Team Range.
