New refined version of Rapha's most lightweight and breathable jersey, designed for the hottest conditions in the world.

Super Lightweight Jersey£90.00

Please select an item above


Very lightweight jersey for hot and humid conditions

With a newly refined pocket construction for more stability and support, the Super-Lightweight is designed for riding in the heat of summer. Made from three synthetic technical fabrics developed exclusively for Rapha, the main body material is comfortable against the skin as you perspire and also fast drying. Mesh side panels add more breathability and soft cuffs and collar maintain comfort.


‟On one recent day when temperatures on my ride reached well into the 80s, the jersey felt cool and comfortable even on long climbs. But light doesn’t mean fragile; through about 15 wearings and washings, the fabric hasn’t pilled yet, and none of the seams are frayed.”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you'd ever want for summer I fall between jersey size for this model (usually a Rapha medium), so have one medium and one large of this model - performance is amazing, ive used it from 18*(arm warmers) to 42* (mesh base)temp range - at the top end (35-42*) I'll not say it stays dry, but it dries quickly and pulls loads of moisture away from the skin. For such a lightweight fabric, it has proved to be very durable - regular washing and use, no notable wear or snags (had the first one for 2 years). The 2nd jersey (in large) I believe had a revision to the fit, definitely seems to be an improvement, pockets sit a little lower and collar/cuffs nice comfortable feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever! This is one of the best jerseys I've ever owned if not the best. I live in Australia and ride in hot and humid conditions and this thing stays comfortable no matter what. I wear it with a base layer and I couldn't be more happy riding with it. Due to the light materials I was concerned that carrying all my stuff in it (I don't have a saddle bag) might be an issue but I didn't need to. It performs flawlessly and it's zippered pocket even fits my iPhone 5. Love this thing and will buy more when needed. For now I just wash it and wear it the next day again as its also very quick drying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice jersey Ok, so Superlight? Talk me through that, its heavier than my cheaper jersey from another manufacturer, however the fit is good, and it looks good on. The biggest issue I have is with the pockets, there are four, small zipped pocket for phone is a nice touch, but the middle of the classic 3 pockets is too small and way too high. the outer 3 pockest are bigger than normal so things rattle around a bit. Obviously, this is designed for a gillet, or jacket to go in the middle pocket, but I cant get anything out of the middle pocket without stopping, not great! But this is just a minor thing with an otherwise great product

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Duller colour than expected ... Sizing not optimal Nice jersey with two niggles ... the colour contains more grey than what is rendered through most UIs. Rapha jersey fit remains a mystery to me ... I never know what I'm going to get. It would be best if you provided precise jersey measurements for each product. Being tall and slim, the jersey front and back lengths seem to vary at random. Likewise your baselayer lengths fluctuate between purchases. I find it a little irritating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Stylish and Comfortable Jersey This is the first Rapha jersey I have owned. The design looks great and the material is incredibly light weight. Despite its thin material being so breathable, the material and seams are durable. With a base layer it has been perfecr for spring riding. The only downside is the sizing of the product. The sizing chart was inadequate for determining the proper fit of the jersey. It runs very small in my case. I am all about being more aero and do not like loose fitting cycling wear, but I will not be reaching for gels in my back pockets that easily with this jersey. (If it helps anyone, I am 6 feet tall and 195 pounds)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice light weight, sizing problems I'm 6'1" 170lbs, 26.25" arms and 15" neck, 40" chest. I don't like particularly baggy clothing. In order to get the proper length, I had to get an XL but the fit around the mid section is just bunched up fabric. I first purchased a L jersey as that's what I normally wear in all my other Euro brand jerseys: the neck was extremely tight, despite the sizing chart's specs, and length was too short. I really like the subtly of the Rapha brand just too bad it doesn't fit me well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feels like a step on from the last one Have been looking at the new super lightweight jerseys for sometime. These are as close to ideal for Hong Kong in the summer when it's hot, humid and sunny. Material feels closer to the pro jerseys and cut also feels tighter than the last I had, both of which are positive. The graduated printing is also excellent quality on all panels of different materials. Only grip is the graduations don't match up across the back and sides with the front with a 20mm mismatch at the side. I know I'm being pedantic but the devil is in the detail and this is something that would normal be checked during production. It doesn't spoil the jersey and look forward to many hot hours thanking Rapha for something to help a little with the hot summer rides

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Annoying zip wore this about 6 times now on rides no shorter than 20 miles. the top is very light and breathable i must admit, the quality it as you'd expect from rapha also, the only complaint i have is the zip! the zip is so frustrating to fasten. putting it together is not the problem it trying to get it to start zipping up, takes about 10 attempts and a bit of a forceful hand, might just be mine but for the money id expect better. runs a little too short in the front for me too , fine in the back

Sizng Question. I wear small on classic jersey. Should i go a size up for this superlightweight jersey? Are these cut shorter in the front? 

Asked by: Leo G
Hi, the Super Lightweigtht Jersey is cut slightly closer but we would recommend you choose the same size as your wear in the Classic Jersey. It does not come up noticeably shorter at the front.

Hi, another annoying size question. In most other brands I am XS, with Hincapie I'm XXS. BUT, I have a Rapha Vest, I think it's Pro Team (but not lightweight). It's just about right, although a little short. Do you think S or XS is best for me?

Asked by: Hayden
Hi, we would recommend you choose the XS in this item. Please also refer to the sizing guide to check your measurements against this. As always, we do offer free 90 day returns if needed.

Club and classic jerseys fit me well in a medium, & I've pro team jersey in large that fits just as well - not sure which way to go with this one?

Asked by: Tabster
Hi, we would recommend you buy the medium in this jersey. It does fit slightly closer than the Classic Jersey but is not as tight as the Pro team Jersey. As always we do have a free 90 day returns policy if needed.

Hi...very doubtful about right size. Chest 96cm, shoulder 56cm and arm what size I must order please?

Asked by: Fernando del Barrio
Hi, it is important the jersey is not too tight across your chest. It can be uncomfortable to have the jersey restricting your chest movement as you breathe in and out. As a result, it would be best if you ordered a Medium. We do have a free 90 day returns policy if needed.

just wondering wha the sleeve length is like on this jersey? 

Asked by: Dr Nick
Hi, the arms are slightly longer than our Classic or Brevet Jerseys, and not quite as long as our Pro Team Aero Jersey. I hope that helps.
