A long sleeve version of the world’s greatest cycling jersey

The Classic Jersey was Rapha’s first ever product, launched in 2004. 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.’

Ideal on top of a base layer for off-season training rides, or with a windproof shell for tough winter cycling the jersey is made from brushed-back Sportwool™, a breathable and insulating merino blend.

A versatile piece that functions well in a wide range of temperatures, the improved and more streamlined cut and fit offer better on-bike comfort. A bonded font hem, zip placket and sleeve panel have been introduced to reduce weight and bulk, and the reworked pocket construction gives secure storage.

FEATURES

  • Brushed back Sportwool™ fabric
  • Improved streamlined cut and fit for on-bike comfort
  • New construction techniques for cleaner finish and reduced weight
  • Reworked pocket construction for stable storage on long rides

FABRIC

  • 52% wool
  • 48% polyester

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for cooler days Excellent Rapha quality and fit. I use this on cooler days (around 10C) with a long sleeved base layer, and it moderates temperature perfectly. Good storage capacity in the pockets

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cracking cool/cold weather jersey! Great fit, great material. OK for cold weather with a merino base layer & a wind block if really cold, or on its own if just cool. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worthy of the Name "Classic"! It is still colld here in the midwest and this jersey has been a perfect addition to my cycling kit. Warm and light with the attention to quality and detail I expect from Rapha.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Rapha item Bought the classic long sleeve as it was merino mix and I know how good this is, and fed up with arm warmers. Rapha fit is better than my others, not tight but not baggy at all in the drops. Very comfy, decent pockets, thin and warm. Really excellent. Needs a larger zip puller like them all for gloves I think. Best jersey I have, no question.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection Even though I own three pairs of arm warmers, I knew a long sleeve jersey was needed for those days that aren't cold and aren't hot. The fit is perfect and has held up well in the wash.

Can I use this jersey without a baselayer underneath, or is it itchy? I'm looking for a long sleeve jersey for spring and autumn rides. Is this ideal or should I instead go for the long sleeve Core jersey? Best regards

Asked by: Kas91
Hi, this jersey is not itchy without a base layer and is ideal for spring and autumn rides.

Hi. Dark Orange looks Red on website. Is it closer to Red or Orange ?

Asked by: ericb73
Hi, this jersey is a blend of the two colours, with a resultant reddy orange colourway.

The purple and dark orange jerseys have a white contrast armband in the photos yet the blue and black jerseys appear to have a complimentary colour band in nearly the same colour fabric.  Is this correct or do they ALL come with a white-contrast armband?

Asked by: Steve E Crane
Hi, the photos are correct. Two colourways come with a contrast white armband and two have a complimentary colour armband.

Are the white armband and the white around the zipper on the back reflective material?

Asked by: pianotuner
Hi, the armband is not reflective but the pocket trim on the rear is.

Hi, I have just bought the Merino base layer in XL. It is a loose fit. I have the Pro Aero jersey in XL and this is a nice tight fit. I want to buy the Long Sleeve Classic Jersey II. Which size would you suggest L or XL. I have a 43" chest and 33" waist.

Asked by: Paul67
Hi, the Merino Base Layers do come up large and we often recommend you size down. The Pro Team Aero Jersey has a close fit and the Classic Jersey II falls somewhere between the two. We recommend you opt for an x-large. As always we do have a free 90 day returns policy if needed.

I'm 6'4" and 215lbs, the XXL says 45+ for chest. but 45 to what? Normally an XL fits, but not rapha jerseys (also, whats waist on XXL?).  By the way, bib shorts are fantastic!

Asked by: MDol
Hi, we would suggest you can wear an XXL up to about 48/49in chest. The waist measurement for an XXL is 38in.
