Super fine merino cycling base layer

The latest edition to the Rapha base layer range is made from an even lighter, finer merino than Rapha’s regular base layers. Ideal for spring and summer riding, the yarn of the V-neck is beautiful to the touch and transfers moisture away from the skin superbly. The base layer’s V-cut neck makes it ideal to be worn with buttoned shirts for a smarter appearance, perfect for the city bike rider.

Merino wool is naturally anti-bacterial, odour resistant and itch free. The V-Neck Base Layer has flatlock stitching so the seams won’t chafe and the seams are positioned behind the shoulders to avoid bag straps rubbing while cycling. The base layer is close fitting and cut longer at the back for a better fit on the bike.

NB: Unfortunately, due to its fine merino construction, the V-Neck Base Layer is unable to be repaired by our Repair Service.

Reviews:

"if the v-neck is worn as prescribed, it will be under the polo or long-sleeve shirt in more formal scenarios than that of a sprinting peloton. this likely has a pile to do with sartorial elegance when worn with the forthcoming tweed jacket, or perhaps under a john herety tank-top. the quality of rapha's merino baselayers has, so far as i'm aware, never been called into question; i've worn them for many a long year and you won't hear any complaints from me. this version seems just a shade thinner than their regular crew-neck baselayers, and definitely a lot thinner than their merino crew-neck (which is winter specific anyway), but i'm afraid i was unable to detect any reduction in warmth throughout my various modes d'emploi."

"While I love cycling specific clothes that look good on or off the bike, things that facilitate movement and comfort while being active throughout the day, I hate to have something so precious that you are afraid to do anything in it. Despite my fears, after about 6 months of heavy use, they are holding up just fine."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Witchcraft I wear this nicely fitting base layer under my Merino jersey when the temperature is 12-16C. After six long rides, it doesnt smell at all. What kind of witchcraft is this?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please bring back this style This is my favorite shirt ever. I noticed that a new style was released a couple of weeks ago. While the new style is nice, it doesn't compare to this version. This one has a nice deep V and curved lines that separate the body from the sleeves. The fit is perfect! Those curved lines are signature! I'm sad to see that they are not on the new style. I only wish I had ordered more of these before the style was updated. I would love to have more shirts of this style in many more colors like brown, green, lime, olive, yellow, orange, maroon, purple, and more. I'm not a cyclist. I shop at Rapha for high quality 100% merino products. Thank you and please keep up the great work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feel and Fit is fantastic I purchased this base layer for a variety of riding conditions and after trying it on the first time I believe I'll order another one for casual wear. So far I've ridden in 30 degree weather up to 70 degress weather and the base layer tackled both. I did take my measurements and trying to select the size was a little more difficult than I would have wanted. I wear a small jersey so I went for the extra small in the base layer. Fits perfectly and it's long enough that I don't have to worry about it moving up during a ride. After the first wash it's just as soft as it was when it arrived.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have So useful. Wear it on its own or under a shirt. Keeps you at a perfect temperature. Doesn't react with body odour, so wear all week! Check when you buy that all the seams are perfect and there are no holes in fabric - you will be too upset to have this shirt threadbare before youve had a few years of wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! Bought this in a flash as I have really struggled to find a good base layer with a v-neck, a really important feature. How is this not a standard design option? The fit is good - I got a small which could/should have come up small as I am approx 38cm chest but is a close fit. It feels warmer than some of my other base layers and arrived in some very tasteful packaging. Worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like the fit and material! Bought this with wearing is as a base layer in mind but have wear it as a casual t-shirt at times. The fit is suitable with my build, I am 70kg and 175cm. The material keeps me warm on cold and windy day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality I've always used Smartwool & Icebreaker baselayers I would say that this is as good if not better.

Hi there. Does this fit the same as the merino mesh base layer? Or is it a bit more relaxed?

Asked by: TBone
Hi, this item has a slightly more relaxed fit, and a high degree of stretch.

Hi, If I am a size XS in Rapha cycling jerseys, I was wondering if the XS or XXS will be a better fit. Thank you

Asked by: zjcz
Hi, size XS should be suitable. However, please do refer to our size guide for a more accurate measurement. We have a 90 days returns policy should you wish to exchange the garment for an alternative size.
