CHECK CLASSIC JERSEY
With the Check Classic Jersey, Rapha pays homage to the golden age of trade team kit design. The 1960s were a time when sponsor logos weren’t so loud, the patterns were understated and the riders who wore the jerseys went on to become style icons that transcended the sport. Boasting the same fit, fabric and performance features of our best-selling Classic Jersey II, this jersey has a checkered flag pattern around the torso that doesn’t break at the full-length zip. The wool blend used for the jersey is Rapha Performance Merino 150 (RPM150), a highly technical, adaptable fabric that guarantees a timeless, luxury look. RPM150 is lightweight, soft and breathable, both helping your body breathe in hot conditions and keeping it warm when the temperature drops. And for added protection, pair the jersey with the Check Classic Gilet. Wherever your ride takes you, celebrate cycling style in luxurious comfort.
CLASSIC BIB SHORTS II
Cycling shorts are the most important clothing purchase any rider can make. Get them right and every kilometre that passes beneath your tyres will be a pleasure; get them wrong, and every kilometre will be an ordeal. Building on our best-selling Classic Bib Shorts, version II features an updated, body-contoured pad with three sizes spread across the range to ensure perfect fit from XS to XXL. The shorts are made from a soft Lycra to allow exceptional freedom of movement, while the bib straps are constructed from a luxury mesh material, with a large cutaway section in the back to prevent overheating. Flatlock stitching ensures all seams lie completely flat to deter chafing, and a new leg gripper provides better grip at a reduced weight.
