Essential everyday jersey

‘For weekday training and commuting, Rapha have totally nailed it. Bravo all round’The Times

Cycling jersey cut using a soft, light stretch fabric. It is shaped to fit the body perfectly in road-bike positions, with raglan sleeves and side panels for stability. Colour-matched throughout, the jersey uses high-spec finishing details, such as ribbed collar and cuffs, a concealed zip pocket and a deep, laser-cut rear gripper lined with soft silicone. Made of a fabric that has been treated with an antibacterial process, the jersey stays fresher for longer during your rides. With subtle Rapha branding and a low-profile left armband, the Core Jersey includes only the essentials.

“The Core collection is about optimising innovative fabrics and processes across the entire collection to reduce production hours and wastage. For example, the leg-gripper trim reappears in the jersey back, the material for the zip guard is used again on the sleeve tips, and bindings use rolled edges. This means we can produce Core garments without compromise, leading to a new standard for everyday cycling apparel.”

Body sizing
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love everything about it Great fabric, great fit. The jersey is described perfectly on the website, and I love all of its features. I did not feel that this jersey ran too small. I am glad I bought my normal size, a medium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all-rounder jersey! A lot of my initial issues with the Core Jersey were outcomes of the sizing. I bought this jersey last year as an XS, following the size guide, and I was slightly disappointed by the fit. This time, I bought the jersey a size down, and it fits much better! If there is one thing I would recommend, it is to GO A SIZE DOWN! Contrary to some peoples' experiences, I haven't found the pocket position to be too high on the XXS jersey. I haven't been on long enough rides with this jersey to fully test the pocket capacity. I've found that this jersey does well in a range of temperatures. I've worn it on rides on humid, 31 degree C days and felt okay, down to windy days in the mid teens, without arm warmers or a gilet. I probably wouldn't go any colder than this without wearing some more layers, but I would say that this jersey can be worn on its own for 65% of the year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality Worn this jersey out once and loved it! Arms are a little longer than other Rapha jerseys I have but I actually prefer it. I am a size 10-12 and ordered a large, I don't like my jerseys too fitted so very happy with the fit. The only thing that would make this jersey even better is a cream or white band around one of the arms as per classic Rapha.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from gorgeous top Always clamoured after a Rapha top, now that I have one I doubt I will opt for any other brand - comfortable, beautiful and a perfect fit. Discounted price helped sway my decision to finally purchase one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Rapha's Core jersey is fantastic. I now have both the short sleeve and long sleeve. It has all the great features of a Rapha jersey. The fabric is comfortable and it now comes in a great selection of bright colours to maximize visibility. Just a word of warning, the sizing runs really large. The cut of this particular jersey works best if you have the right size. I had to go down two sizes to get the same fit as my other Rapha jerseys. But otherwise, I love this jersey!!

Hi just wondering if this is an okay jersey for summertime/everyday? I purchased the core long sleeve and was surprised with how thick it was. Is it the same material? Thanks

Hi, I have purchased the rapha core jersey in small. I would like to know if the souplesse will fit alot more race fit with the arms, neck. back. Is there much difference in the two materials. Will there be a plain core jersey in lycra?

Asked by: vigorellit
Hi, the Souplesse Jersey offers a race fit which is designed for high-tempo and hot-weather riding. It will be more race cut than the Core Jersey.
