Lightweight merino-blend cycling base layer for year-round riding
Designed for riding and racing in all conditions, the Merino Mesh Base Layer offers incredible breathability, exceptional moisture transfer and class-leading comfort. Wear beneath a thermal jersey and jacket in the winter or under a flyweight jersey in the height of summer for year-round performance. Made from a second generation merino-blend fabric, woven exclusively for Rapha, the higher merino content provides excellent moisture management and natural antibacterial qualities, with further ventilation guaranteed by the lightweight mesh structure. The Merino Mesh Base Layer is available with short or long sleeves, or no sleeves at all, and has a dropped tail for a great fit on the bike. It is finished with a Rapha logo tab on the chest.
For extra care machine wash in a garment bag to prevent any snagging on the delicate merino material.

Are these different from the mesh that you sold a couple of years ago? They don't look the same.
How is the fit and sizing for these baselayers. The medium classic and medium pro team jersey fits me really well. Should I get a medium or small?
what is the expected shrinking after washing - the fit is great but a little short (I bought a Large and I'm 179cm tall)
Hello! I'd like to know if the fabric is made from a yarn where the polyester and the merino are intermingled together or if the fabric is plaited: polyester against the skin and merino on the outside (or vice-versa). Thank you.
Thank you for your request. We’ll contact you when your Merino Mesh Base Layer - Short Sleeve is available.
