Merino V-Neck Base Layer
A reliable merino base layer is as useful while hopping about the city as it is out on a club ride. It will regulate your body temperature and help keep you dry by wicking away moisture while natural antibacterial properties help minimise odour.
Rapha has used a thicker, softer merino on this year’s city baselayers, bringing them more in line with the road products. The Merino V-Neck Baselayer uses the same ribbed knit used on the classic baselayer fabric to ensure itch-free comfort throughout the day.
Seams have flatlock stitching so they won't chafe and are positioned behind the shoulders to avoid bag or bib straps rubbing while cycling. The base layers are close-fitting and cut long at the back for a better fit on the bike.
To maintain and protect your merino products we recommend using Rapha Merino Wash »
Rapha Merino Wash has been specially formulated for Rapha merino products, with a gentle action that cleans without stripping out the natural oils that are the key to merino’s performance. Used regularly, the wash will remove dirt and refresh merino garments thanks to ingredients that include Rapha’s Ventoux fragrance. Inspired by the plants and herbs that grow on the slopes of the ‘Giant of Provence’, the wash also has natural Cedar extract to help repel moths.
