With a design inspired by the art of ascending, this limited edition, quarter-zip Classic Jersey is one for the climbers. With an innovative merino wool blend, it is well suited to all-round riding in a wide range of temperatures. This version of the Classic Jersey retains the refined fit and rider-inspired details of the original, but has been updated with a new version of our Rapha Performance Merino 150 (RPM150) fabric – which now incorporates recycled fibres. Unlike generic merino blends, RPM150 is light, soft, breathable and adaptable. And with recycled polyester now part of the mix, it has a lower impact, too. Three rear pockets carry everything you need for the climbs, and reflective trims improve visibility in low light conditions.

How This Was Made

The Classic Climbs Jersey is made with the latest iteration of Rapha Performance Merino – a proprietary blend comprising high-grade, merino wool and post-consumer recycled polyester. Using recycled polyester reduces our reliance on virgin materials and gives a second life to materials that would otherwise go to landfill. Learn more about sustainability at Rapha, including how we’re working to develop our products more responsibly.
