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 Excellent Quality and Fit This is one of my first purchases of Rapha products and I was not disappointed. The quality of the jersey is amazing and it was delivered in 3 days overseas. Looking forward to my next purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure riding Put simply, this jersey is pure riding pleasure. Well designed, made from quality material and a touch of style - whats not to like? The jersey performs well in a variety of conditions and feels snug without being restrictive. I have not worn any other jersey that strikes the balance between comfort and practicality that the classic II does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean cut, soft, beautiful Material composition is perfect, and even the black color does very well in the heat. The length in the back is spot on for coverage, even when in an aero tuck. The pockets are well made and do a fine job of holding what you need. The small zipper pocket on the right rear pocket is a must-have! I'm 5'7 (170 cm) and 156 lbs (71 kg), and medium fit perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A classic Bought this in medium after reading the reviews on size and glad I did. Nice snug fitting top which looks quite simple at first glance but works perfectly theres obviously a lot of thought gone into this. Looks great on with plenty of room for kit in the pockets and even somewhere safe to keep your keys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top notch! This was my first Rapha jersey, and ever since I bought it, about a year ago, I haven't used any of my older jerseys. This one actually makes me want to go riding more, because it's so comfortable I don't even notice wearing it. It keeps me warm in colder conditions and cool in hot summer days. And of course, it looks great too! I first ordered an M but found it a bit loose. I like a snug fit so I returned it for an S which I liked better. I am somewhere between S and M, 170 cm and around 65-70 kg.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best jersey I've ever owned Stylish, functional and worth every penny. If you want to look like a peacock, that's your business. But if you want to look classy, go Rapha!

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.

My chest measurement is right in the middle of the L range, though everything else is right in the middle of the M range. I'm 177cm and yes, my chest is fairly large. Defo not a flat pro like chest. What size should I get this in?

Asked by: HansenPansen
Hi, the chest measurement is the most important, limiting measurement. We recommend you order a large in this jersey. As always, we do offer free 90 day returns if needed.

Some other Rapha merino-based products are recommended for washing with wool detergent. Can this be used in lieu of non-bio detergent?

Asked by: GusLong
Hi, you can certainly use wool detergent in place of non-bio detergent.

I wonder if the size of Classic Jersey II is normally larger than the same size of Lightweight or other jersey. I wear size M of Lightweight, I then bought size M Classic Jersey II. I found it's so big and loose. Is it supposed to be worn loose? 

Asked by: Seto
Hi, the Classic Jersey II does have a slightly more relaxed fit than the Super Lightweight Jersey. It is not intended to be worn loose but is not intended to fit quite as closely.
