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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top quality base layer This is an expensive product, but the quality is impressive. The combination of lightweight wool and mesh is exactly what I've been looking for. This is perfect for cycling in hot Texas, but I've also been using them as everyday undershirts. I work outside much of the day, and these base layer shirts are amazing. I haven't had them long enough to assess durability. Instructions are to line-dry, which I've been doing. It is an inconvenience, but they do dry quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great base layer for year-round conditions Bought two of the thicker merino base layers for winter weather. Liked the look of the mesh ones and decided to buy now in preparation for the warmer months. Have work on a couple of winter rides (mid-single figures) under a jersey and jacket / gilet. Have found these (mesh) ones are great in colder temperatures as well - they do a great job wicking away moisture, avoiding that sensation of a cold, damp base layer coming into contact with your skin. I bought the bundle of three, and plan to wear year-round. Great, stylish product - as you come to expect from Rapha.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands Down- Essential Layer When the weather turns cool, this is the most essential item Rapha carries. It really holds your temps and wicks moisture away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wicking and temp regulation I bought a bundle of these and am glad I did. They are in routine use. They regulate heat well and wick sweat. A good layer in between a summer base layer an a full on merino. They are good under a full merino layer in colder conditions to wick sweat away. They do wear with regular use but take quite a sound beating for a long time.

Are these different from the mesh that you sold a couple of years ago? They don't look the same.

Asked by: BillE
These garments are very similar in style and feel to the garments of two years ago.

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?

Asked by: F1Rapha
Hi, we suggest staying true to size. Should you need to exchange or refund, we have a 90 days return period for new/unused garments with tags and in saleable condition.

what is the expected shrinking after washing - the fit is great but a little short (I bought a Large and I'm 179cm tall)

Asked by: Berrons
The product, if the correct care is followed as per the washing instructions, should not shrink,

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.

Asked by: Berrons
The fabric is woven together, so this is a mix between both the Merino and the Polyester.
