The jersey that started it all, reborn

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.

About the new RPM150 fabric

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features I purchased the Brevet last year and really enjoy the extra warmth of the wool jersey whist still having the short sleeves. The classic is a little lighter than the Brevet so can be worn in warmer weather. I feel the cold so like the extra weight. Still very breathable, I did not overheat in summer. Good fit, good size pockets, stylish, soft and comfortable jersey.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just OK I've worn this jersey 2-3 times a week for the past month on both serious and casual rides. The fit is a little perplexing. My body type is hourglass, and typically jerseys hug me in my natural waist while being snug (but not too tight) in the shoulders, bust and hips. This jersey is almost too tight in the shoulders and bust, loose in my waist and hips. Beware if you have a wide shoulders or a D-cup or larger that your normal jersey size might be too small, but that the bottom of the jersey might have too much room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A performance jersey for everyday training and rid I bought this a month ago and the fabric is suitable for S.E.A climate. Rapha as such take great care in devising fresh classic designs that produce a finished product that really makes an impact whenever I ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and good fit Very nice quality jersey. I like the color (dark blue and pink), stylish and elegant. Good to know that the classic jersey sizes a little bigger than the souplesse jersey and the material is thicker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit Love it after a bit of hesitation as Rapha is a bit expensive I'm so glad I purchased this as it is so soft and fits perfectly. I ordered the small, I'm usually a size 10.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very well made!! I thought the merino wool would be hot and thick but it was ok. I ride in very hot humid weather. The jersey runs big, I wear a small (5'5 114 lbs) but had to order an xs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved fit, very flattering I had the original classic jersey and loved it for its clean look and good fit but did always feel it was a tad thick. Got the new version and much prefer this one. The fit is better and shorter which suits me. Longer sleeve length is great too. The fabric is thinner and looks more streamline on the bike. Love the navy and pink. Looks great as a complete kit except I've had to return my bibs due to a seam splitting at the thigh.

I need to replace my Classic jersey. The size says 10. I would like to order the same size, what does that translate to in the letter system? Thanks!

Asked by: LArider
Hi, the size 10 would be equivalent to a small in our letter system.

is this suitable for hot weather?

Asked by: Lydia
Hi, as we all regulate temperatures different it can be hard to say. The Classic Jersey II works well for a range of temperatures and seasons. The Super Lightweight Jersey is made for high tempo riding in extreme heat.

I am 5'9-10" tall and weigh 138 lbs, my bust is 34 D. Which size do you recommend? Also, does this jersey really require ironing if it is hung to dry?

Asked by: Higgy
Hi, please refer to our size guide for a more accurate measurement. With the information provided, we would recommend to try a small. We do have a 90 days return period should you wish to change size. As per the washing instructions we do recommend a warm iron to remove any deep creases.

Is the cutting of new classic jersey smaller than previous design?! how much difference would be?!

Asked by: miawmiaw
Hi, The construction of the jersey has been improved with a reworked cut making the jersey less bulky and slightly more fitted than the original jersey.
