A new generation of Rapha’s iconic jersey, the Classic Jersey II is a highly evolved design. Cut from a proprietary merino-based fabric, it is lighter, softer and more breathable - and now available in club colours.


    RCC products are available to Rapha Cycling Club members, subject to stock availability. To find out more about the benefits of membership and join the club follow the link below.


A classic reborn in club colours

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 on Rapha introduced a new version, the Classic Jersey II, in 2015. Reimagined once more in RCC livery for 2017, the evolved design is cut from a 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 the generic merino-blends used in the first incarnation of the Classic Jersey and is adaptable to a huge range of conditions.

The construction of the jersey has also been overhauled with a reworked fit and bonding has been used extensively to improve stretch in the seams and reduce bulk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why would you wear any other cycling brand? I held out not wearing Rapha products for the 3 years I've been into road cycling because of other people's (who don't wear Rapha) negative comments. Well... I didn't know any better, but now I sure do! Rapha cycling kit is hands down the best quality & most comfortable kit on the market. I've joined the club, drunk the cool and and I'm all in. This Classic Jersey II is my all rounder, it's loose enough to feel super comfy but it's tight enough to feel super fast in it also. It looks great, you look great in it, you really can't go wrong with having one of these in the (Rapha only now) collection.

Hi! Im a size M on the pro team aero jersey. My chest measurement is 90cm but I decided to buy one size up on the pro team aero, it was the right decision. For this classic II jersey, should I buy small? What about for the shadow jerseys?

Asked by: Luchjo
The Pro Team Jersey, as with the Shadow collection has a race fit. The Classic Jersey has a more relaxed fit and the Small size should be the appropriate size based upon the information and dimensions provided. If the garment does not meet with your suitability then you can return this to us under our 90 day returns policy.

The Proteam jersey I am wearing XL, and must downsize on CORE Jersey to L (fits well). What do you suggest for Classic II? XL or L?

Asked by: DogmaF8
For the Classic Range you should fit well into the Large.

I normally wear a size small in all rapha jerseys. Love the fit of my pro aero jerseys for example in Small. Are the classic II jerseys much roomier? Should I go XS?? 33.5 in chest. 

Asked by: Eyeguy
Hi, please refer to the size guide as far as possible. With the information you have provided, we would suggest you try a XS. Should you need to exchange, we have a 90 days return period.

It looks like this jersey has a longer sleeve than the classic jersey. If so, how much longer is it?

Asked by: Patch
Hi, this jersey has exactly the same fit as the standard Classic Jersey II.
