A Classic Reborn

The Classic Jersey was Rapha’s first ever product. A bold expression of the company’s mission to create the world’s best cycling apparel, it changed the industry. Predominantly black and cut from an unorthodox merino-wool-based fabric, Bicycling Magazine’s Editor Bill Strickland declared it the ‘best bike jersey the world has ever seen.’

Twelve years in the making, Rapha introduces a new generation, the Classic Jersey II. Brought up to speed for 2016, this highly evolved design is cut from a new proprietary merino-wool-based fabric, milled to Rapha’s exact specification. Called RPM150 (Rapha Performance Merino, the 150 indicates grams per square metre), it is lighter, softer and more breathable than generic merino-blends, adaptable to a huge range of conditions.

Not stopping at the fabric, 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 Superb cycle jersey This is my fourth Classic Jersey. I rate these really high on my list of cycling apparel. It's a nice blend of polyester and marino wool so work well most of the year as is, without the need for an extra layer. The fit is great and they wear very well so you find them lasting ages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best jersey I have ever owned I'm 5'-5" - 130 lbs and its hard to find cycling clothes that fit perfect. The XS nailed it. Most comfortable jersey ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A quality, stylish classic jersey Bought this jersey in a medium and the fit is perfect for me (5ft 9, 68kg, 37 inch chest). Fit is slightly bigger than the lightweight Jersey but slimmer than the brevet. The cut and material are very flattering. The slightly shorter front length is perfect especially when on the bike with no loose material gathering around the stomach. The Jersey wicks away sweat very well and drys quickly. I went for the black with black armband and it is beautifully subtle. Classic Rapha. Great jersey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jersey - very impressed This jersey has exceeded my expectations so far. I have ridden it several times now in 8-10 degree temps and it has performed briliiantly. Other jerseys would have me reaching for a gilet but not this jersey. It also looks great!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why I love this Jersey This is my go to Jersey when I'm not sure what the weather is going to do. Perfect for 20 degrees and under. Doesn't get too hot up hill and wicks moister away and keeps you warm when going down hill. Can't recommend it enough...

How does the classic jersey and shorts compare to the core and brevet?

Asked by: Seanfisher
Our Classic Range is our best comfort fit range, followed by the Brevet which is quite similar. Our Core range is slightly tighter and best explained as a fit between the Brevet and Pro Team.

Can you specify the difference on dimensions of size M versus size L. I ordered M size and feels like it is a bit tight on chest, neck, but I am afraid L would be too loose... I am 179 cm, 101 chest, waist 90. Thank you!

Asked by: RazvanC
With the chest dimension you have provided the recommendation based on our size guide would be to try a large size. We do have a 90 day returns policy so if the garment doe snot meet with your specifications then you are able to return the Jersey to us.

Hi could you confirm if the black/black jersey has the special edition embroidery on the back? I'm hoping it doesn't as per the pictures on the website but have seen some reviews showing the  special edition jersey with the embroidery. Many thanks 

Asked by: arc73
We do not have any special edition embroidery on the back of this garment.

Hi, I have the 1st classic jersey in a size medium and it fits me perfectly. Is the new jersey the same size/fit? Thanks 

Asked by: Ross84
The Classic Jersey II is just slightly more structured than the first generation of classic jerseys. So you would still be the same size but the Classic Jersey II would fit just a tad more on the fitted side.

Hi, is this a summer jersey that could be ware in 90 degree Fahrenheit weather?

Asked by: Elias
Hi, this jersey is a three season jersey. It is hard to advise an exact temperature as it depends on your own temperature regulation and exertion level. However, this jersey can be used from roughly 60-80 degrees Fahrenheit.
