Core Lightweight Jersey

For comfort on hot days.

Description

Our Core Jersey is the trusted choice of cyclists around the world for any kind of riding. But for the hottest days, we’ve created a lighter, brighter cousin: the Core Lightweight Jersey. With the fit and features of the original, we’ve introduced two ultralight fabrics to bring Core comfort and performance to sweltering rides in hot and humid conditions.

The front makes use of a highly breathable, lightweight mesh to promote airflow and regulate body temperature, with a denser knit fabric on the back for protection from the sun. Throughout, the same signature finishing touches that define the Core collection are present, with three gusseted pockets that expand to carry all your riding essentials, subtle logos and a signature armband. The lighter weight fabrics dry quickly so you’ll never catch a chill, the full-length zip adds on-the-go adjustability, and a wide elastic gripper to keep your jersey secure.

NB – always wear sunscreen with mesh fabrics.

“You could argue that we don't get enough hot, humid days in the UK to warrant a special, very light summer jersey and it's true the standard Rapha Core jersey is probably more of an all-rounder – but for midsummer heatwave-type riding or riding abroad in the mountains, the Core Lightweight does exactly what it's designed to do.”
