Streamlined summer jersey

The Souplesse range is for female riders who demand top-level functionality without compromising on sophisticated looks, and the Souplesse Jersey combines streamlined tailoring with advanced fabric technology to create high-performance style. Designed for all-day riding in hot conditions, the Souplesse Jersey is cut from a proprietary fabric, with a soft matte finish, and is very breathable. It is elegant and lightweight, yet tough enough to withstand demanding use throughout the summer.

The jersey is close-fitting: snug supportive and comfortable around the arms and torso to provide muscle support and a low-profile finish. It also features a rear central pump sleeve and a zipped valuables pocket. A rear contrast stripe, reflective Rapha logo and contrast bindings are just some of the additional style details.

"Designed for hot-weather riding, it certainly helps moderate your temperature with exceptional breathability, as I experienced on several rides on hot, humid days.

The cut is excellent: comfortable, flattering, and fitted. This is performance wear and designed to be snug: if you are large in the chest region you may want to go up a size – though I'm a 34D and the medium fitted fine."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the better fit jersey This is the 4th rapha jersey I bought. So far, I find souplesse cutting fits me better (I hv both colours). I'm a breast cancer survivor n currently battling lymphoma. After my lumpectomy, I dun hv the confidence to don on tight fitting clothings. Then the full black classic changed my mind. Today, I enjoy your souplesse jerseys. Hopefully, I can see a pink jersey or a jersey with a pink ribbon for cancer awareness. Or some collaboration with cancer foundation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice light jersey, very stylish Love this jersey! The fabric is lighter than the Core jersey, and the fit is closer. Very well made and designed, good for hot days. After reading other reviews I ordered a large (I'm 164 cm, 61 kg, but with broader shoulders and back). It fits well without being too tight. (I have a Core jersey in medium, and it's quite roomy.) The back rides up a little bit, but I maybe need a size medium around my hips. Very smart-looking in cherry red with grey stripes, and I appreciate the very subtle logo. But I'm not sure how they came up with "cherry red." It's more like a coral-red. I love the colour though -- it's a bit different, and it's good and visible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fashion and Function Brilliantly Woven My girlfriend absolutely loves this garment. The fit and cooling abilities keep her in the saddle for miles without having to constantly readjust the collar or the sleeves as if the jersey were a natural part of her skin. Being asthmatic she needs to carry certain cargo in addition to nutrition for the road. Fitting that entire load into the pockets is effortless and reaching for them is a breeze throughout the ride without necessitating a stop to find the item she needs at any given moment. Both the cut and the design compliment her body and her color palette. She absolutely marvels over the coral accents on the sleeves.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Least favourite jersey I find this jersey too short and therefore the pockets are too high and difficult to access. Not a big fan of the pump pocket either. I can only wear this jersey with bibs as there is a gap with shorts on and I'm quite short. I purchased an XS which usually fits me well. In retrospect perhaps I should have returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very smart I keep returning to this jersey on these humid days. It does hold sweat a bit and I wonder how see through the coral might be, having bought the navy. But it feels lovely, fits well (I especially like the arms) and the stripes are smart. One gripe. It's bit delicate. First time I wore it I put something in a pocket which wasn't especially big and it pulled some stitches out at the top of the pocket. I think the fabric is much more stretchy than the thread. I couldn't face returning it in case there wasn't my size available, so just stuck a few stitches in myself, but it was an irritation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way better than last year I got the souplesse jersey from last year and while I really like it, I had a few qualms with it. The sleeves were very short, the front of the jersey was short enough to often show the mesh of my bibs when standing, and the middle back pocket was basically useless. They fixed everything this year. The sleeves are the stylish longer cut, I don't have any problem with it revealing my stomach in the front, and all of the pockets in the back are quite functional. I got mine in red and have to say it is soooo beautiful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A favourite for fit and comfort Having seen a number of women wearing this particular jersey, I was jealous of how amazing everyone looked in it so cracked and got one for myself. I wish I had had it all summer. The centre pocket on this jersey is now more spacious which I find helpful (now I have managed to attached my pump to my bike instead of carrying it in my jersey pocket). The fabric is beautiful and comfortable in hot weather and robust for slightly dodgy-er British conditions. I am relatively tall and curvy and found the fit very good - probably my favourite of the Rapha jerseys I have had over the years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love! I bought this to wear when I took part in the Giro Gran Fondo in Cividale del Fruili in May and boy was it comfortable and also makes me feel stylish (a challenge sometimes when the wrong side of 50!). Excellent quality, it feels like silk and it light and stretchy (so get lots in the back pockets). With the bright stripes down the back it is also visible from a long way off (so I'm told). Ok, it's happier in the Italian sunshine but for the grey British summer I've worn with a layer underneath or a gilet over the top. I love it so much I have it in blue and black. A winner!

For size 31- 24-35, would you recommend XXS or XS jersey?

Asked by: Samira
Hi, this jersey has a close, race ready fit so we recommend you choose an x-small. As always we do have a free 90 day returns policy.

Hi, this may appear a strange question, but can you confirm the colour of this jersey. Is it black or navy, also are the suggested mitts to pair the same colour?

Asked by: KennyReid
Hi, this jersey is black and pink. The suggested mitts are the same colour. I hope that helps.
