The Classic Jersey was one of our first ever products. Traditional, subtle style, understated colours and innovative merino-wool-based fabric. It was a bold expression of our mission to create the world’s finest cycling apparel.

This latest version features an all new, proprietary merino-based fabric, RPM150, which stands for Rapha Performance Merino with the 150 indicating grams per square metre. Unlike generic merino-blends, RPM150 is light, soft and breathable, making it adaptable to a huge range of conditions. The fabric helps your body to breathe in hot conditions and insulates when the temperature drops, making it truly versatile.

This jersey is cut to fit close but comfortably, with the fabric being less compressive than the racewear in our Pro Team and Souplesse collections.

“The best bike jersey the world has ever seen.”
Bill Strickland, Bicycling Magazine
