Lightweight merino-blend cycling base layer for year-round riding

Designed for all conditions, including high summer, the Merino Mesh Base Layer offers high performance and exceptional comfort. It is made from a proprietary, merino-blend Rapha fabric which combines the natural qualities of merino with a lightweight mesh structure for additional ventilation and improved moisture management. The Merino Mesh Base Layer has a dropped tail for a great fit on the bike, while flatlock seams and raglan sleeves ensure comfort. Finished with a Rapha logo tab on the chest.

Reviews:

“There is no better base layer than this mesh wool piece which is light enough for the heat of autumn days but, thanks to the merino, adds lots of warmth after the sun sets.”
Outside Magazine

“It’s odd to find an item of clothing that performs well across the seasons, yet that’s just what we have here with the Merino Mesh.”

“I’ve found that with the right windproof jackets it works well on cold winter days, and with thinner long-sleeve jerseys it manages to work into double-figure temperatures as well. I can’t think of another base layer that does this and works across such a wide temperature range.”
Cycling Weekly 9/10

“Amongst my initial thoughts when opening the packet were about the fragility of the mesh, but it seems it holds up to the rigours of Team Sky who use it – so thats good enough for me! In use it’s holding up to daily wear nicely, no loose seams, stretching or tears – I’m pretty rough with my kit in general so I was worried about longevity with it.”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thin, comfy, very breathable. Excellent to wear as a base layer on or off the bike. Highly recommended. It keeps the body temperature stable at comfy temperature while the weather temperature is changing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great base layer! Super nice base layer. Kept me warm and dry for a whole day in the saddle. I'm 183cm, 68/69 kg and XS in the Classic Jersey II - I sized down to XXS for a tight and close fit. Glad I did!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fit and forget As usual I size down for the merino base layers. The quality is, being rapha, absolutely amazing. I love this item for summer. Don't hesitate to buy and try. Works for intervals or club runs alike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent lightweight base layer Perfect base layer for temperatures ranging from 50F-80F. Very lightweight and wicks away moisture. Just be careful when handling the garment as dry skin or unruly fingernail can damage it for it snags easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All You'll Ever Need I have three Rapha base layers and this one replaces one that I wore out! I wear them all year round, including in 35 degree heat on Alpe d'Huez, and they are superb. They wick away sweat efficiently but don't let you get cold when you stop. So in the winter they are ideal and as warm as any other - you just don't get that cold soggy feeling at the cafe! Typical Rapha quality and class. For a proper 'skin snug' fit go smaller; this was the advice I had from the Rapha instore sales people and they were right - I don't notice it once I'm on the move.

What temperature range would be recommended for this?

Asked by: Sellis
Hi, it is always hard to advise an exact temperature range as it will depend on your own temperature regulation and exertion level. However, this base layer can be used from 0-16/17 degrees celsius, depending on whether is it combined with a thin/thick jersey or a jacket.
