Women's Classic Jersey II
The Classic Jersey was the first ever Rapha product to launch and epitomised the brand’s mission to create the finest cycling garments possible. 12 years later Rapha have reimagined the jersey, retaining its essential qualities of absolute comfort and function, but making it even better. The main component of this evolution is the fabric. Called RPM150 (Rapha Performance Merino, the 150 indicates grams per square metre), it is a proprietary material milled specifically and only for Rapha. It is lighter, softer and more breathable than generic merino-blends, adaptable to many conditions. The construction of the jersey has also improved with a reworked fit and sections bonded rather than stitched. This reduces weight and bulk even further.
Rapha Performance Merino 150 or RPM150 (the 150 indicates grams per square metre) has been created to be the most versatile cycling fabric in the world. With a lighter weight than before for more conditions and climates, it has improved next-to-skin softness and comfort. Helping your body breathe in hot conditions and insulating when the temperature drops, this fabric is a product of Rapha’s tireless R&D to create the world’s best cycling apparel.
Women's Classic Bib Shorts
Designed both for training and racing, the Women’s Classic Bib Shorts offer exceptional performance and comfort in a range of riding conditions.
Cut from a matt Lycra fabric (the same used in the regular Women’s Bib Shorts) that is both breathable and high wicking, the shorts use a chamois pad designed specifically for women and have a panelled construction to guarantee a superb fit. Flatlock stitching throughout means they won’t chafe, no matter how long or hard you ride.
The legs feature tonal Rapha logos and a new subtle, low profile, leg gripper that gives an improved fit.
The bib section is made from two different mesh fabrics, a close-knit mesh at the front to offer warmth and a breathable, open-knit mesh at the back. In warmer weather the bib section does away with the need for a base layer. Designed to be worn with the Medium Support Bra or the Light Support Bra, the back of the shorts also has a large cutaway section for maximum breathability.
