Core Jersey and Short bundle
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
Quality cycling shorts that complement any ride. No straps provides cooling comfort on hot days and during intense training sessions, as well as convenience when changing quickly. Soft waist elastic keeps the shorts comfortably secure whether paired with your favourite jersey or worn under trousers or loose shorts during longer commutes. The main panels use a dense-knit fabric for support and modesty and laser-cut leg grippers lined with soft silicone for a close, comfortable fit. Flatlock seams are positioned carefully throughout to hold the shorts in place without chafing. The shorts’ design is purposefully understated, with subtle tonal branding. As with everything in the Rapha Core collection, these shorts are nothing more and nothing less than the basics, perfectly crafted. For every rider, wherever they ride.
