Rapha Core

The essentials in performance and functionality

Description

Essential everyday jersey

Cycling jersey cut using a soft, light stretch fabric. It is shaped to fit the body perfectly in road-bike positions, with raglan sleeves and side panels for stability. Colour-matched throughout, the jersey uses high-spec finishing details, such as ribbed collar and cuffs, a concealed zip pocket and a deep, laser-cut rear gripper lined with soft silicone. Made of a fabric that has been treated with an antibacterial process, the jersey stays fresher for longer during your rides. With subtle Rapha branding and a low-profile left armband, the Core Jersey includes only the essentials.

“The Core collection is about optimising innovative fabrics and processes across the entire collection to reduce production hours and wastage. For example, the leg-gripper trim reappears in the jersey back, the material for the zip guard is used again on the sleeve tips, and bindings use rolled edges. This means we can produce Core garments without compromise, leading to a new standard for everyday cycling apparel.”
Alex Valdman, Head of Design

Reviews:

“For weekday training and commuting, Rapha have totally nailed it. Bravo all round”
Graham Hutson, The Times

“… against your skin the kit never feels anything less than premium – appropriately stretchy without ever feeling compressive, light and soft without feeling insubstantial. Astute features like the wide, but gentle, silicone grippers and an anatomic cut means you don’t have to give the kit a second thought once it has been donned – it fits well, stays in place and performs as it should. In short, it just works.”
★★★★½ Sam Challis, cyclist.co.uk

“… it's incredibly comfortable around the biceps and triceps, and sits perfectly against the skin thanks to the slim cut. It's small things like this that help reassure you the designers at Rapha know what they're doing.”
★★★★☆ Ash Quinlan, Road.cc

“The Rapha Core jersey is a relatively simple piece but it’s great for everyday road riding, whether that’s casually cruising round the lanes or a high tempo effort … the quality and attention to detail is excellent.”
Jim Clarkson, roadcyclinguk.com

“The Rapha Core jersey manages to deliver the high quality construction, fit and style that has made Rapha such a popular brand, but without the exorbitant pricetag that you might usually expect.”
