The checkered flag icon
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.
