A classic reborn in club colours

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 on Rapha introduced a new version, the Classic Jersey II, in 2015. Reimagined once more in RCC livery for 2017, the evolved design is cut from a 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 the generic merino-blends used in the first incarnation of the Classic Jersey and is adaptable to a huge range of conditions.

The construction of the jersey has also been overhauled with a reworked fit and bonding has been used extensively to improve stretch in the seams and reduce bulk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable !!! I am so glad I bought it a few weeks ago as the jersey is ideal to wear in winter over a base layer with a gilet. The fabric is extremely comfortable and feels good, the black colour looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great upgrade for the club jersey Massive upgrade for this jersey compared to the first gen club jersey. The fit, feel and the full zipper make it a real option for a summer day on the east coast now. I'd happily wear it in the spring/fall too with a base layer and be fine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new 'go to' jersey The Classic jersey was my first Rapha purchase years ago. This update is just as good and with the RCC details it is very stylish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable, excellent fit Used it on an 80-mile ride recently. The temperature ranged from 15 C at the start and about 25 C at the end. Wore a gilet in the beginning, which I removed during the ride. The jersey was very comfortable during the entire ride.

The Proteam jersey I am wearing XL, and must downsize on CORE Jersey to L (fits well). What do you suggest for Classic II? XL or L?

Asked by: DogmaF8
For the Classic Range you should fit well into the Large.

I normally wear a size small in all rapha jerseys. Love the fit of my pro aero jerseys for example in Small. Are the classic II jerseys much roomier? Should I go XS?? 33.5 in chest. 

Asked by: Eyeguy
Hi, please refer to the size guide as far as possible. With the information you have provided, we would suggest you try a XS. Should you need to exchange, we have a 90 days return period.

It looks like this jersey has a longer sleeve than the classic jersey. If so, how much longer is it?

Asked by: Patch
Hi, this jersey has exactly the same fit as the standard Classic Jersey II.
