Versatile merino layer for winter cycling

The latest addition to the Rapha base layer system has been created for extended rides in cold conditions. The Winter Base Layer is made from 100% New Zealand merino and uses an 18.9 micron yarn for exceptional softness against the skin. The natural fibre is also itch-free, high-wicking and odour resistant. Made from a heavier weight yarn than Rapha’s regular base layers, the roll neck can be worn as normal for standard insulation, or with the neck pulled up over the face to work in the same way as the Rapha Winter Collar. The Winter Base Layer has raglan sleeves so bag straps won’t rub, while flatlock seams ensure it won’t chafe.

Reviews:

"Deserving a full review of its own, Rapha's Winter Base Layer is a must-have companion to pair with your Rapha jacket. By sealing in warmth, rapidly wicking moisture and fostering exceptional comfort without donning the look of nerdy cycling apparel, Rapha's Winter Base Layer is without a doubt a flawless garment to add to your cycling wardrobe."
– Subjective Cyclist
"Due to the quality merino and the roll top neck, I found the Winter Base Layer to be ideal for the very coldest days. At temperatures of around 5C, I felt comfortable wearing just the base layer with a mid-weight windproof jacket over the top. For anything colder, the additional of a mid-layer and proper winter jacket has me pedalling comfortably down to -3C, or about the coldest it's gotten this winter down south."

"Cyclists, take note. Rapha’s merino base layers are designed with flatlock seams to prevent chafing when riding. They come in a range of sleeve lengths as well as styles. This particular super soft roll-neck can be pulled up over the face to keep icy winds out."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this last week and I’ve worn it numerous times since. Absolutely fantastic product and great to wear in this cold weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Merino hasn't let me down yet Got this recently to complement my existing merino mesh and standard long sleeve merino base layers. I also have a winter collar which I employ as needed, but will be reaching for this layer on the coldest days thanks to the thicker merino, as well as the fact that the turtle-neck is a bit more streamlined under a jacket than the winter collar, and on the coldest days I don't expect I'll want to remove it. I got the extra small (normally wear a small in Pro Team and either a small or extra small in Classic, and would recommend sizing down so that it fits easily under jerseys and jackets).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic piece of winter warmth Wore it recently in sub zero temperatures, 6 hour ride including cafe stop and the merino aspect of the top really showed itself as quality. It wicked away the sweat so as never to feel cold, was cosy and warm and just worked. If I had a criticism it would be the roll neck could be a bit longer to pull completely over the mouth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as it should be! Non-itch, warm and comfortable. Never ridden with a all neck in winter before, but is a game changer under the protean training jacket. I am 190cm and 80kg, and a Proteam large in everything, but went for medium in this, and it has the same fit (snug but not too tight), with excellent arm length for a taller guy like me. Tried a large and it was pretty baggy.Will probably buy more of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have a couple of these now, great for both on and off the bike during the winter. Not at all bulky and regulates body temp really well even on hard efforts. If you tend to run cold like me it’s a great base layer to help you get out during the coldest days of a British winter, great for layering effectively.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Winter Upgrade I recently purchased to replace some worn-out Craft synthetic base layers. I've enjoyed the lighter-weight Rapha base layers for years, and this Winter Base Layer is equally great. The fit is spot on, the fabric is comfy and warm, and it feels every bit as quality as the other Rapha products I have. I used this under a shell on an upper-30-degree mtb ride and it was sufficiently warm without being too hot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great base layer, low bulk and warm I already own a Rapha merino long sleeve base layer along with the Rapha winter collar, however this combines the best of both with a cleaner integration. I like to be warm but I don't like the bulk that comes with it. This solves that issue, perfectly.

Can the rollneck be pulled up to the chin and stay stere while riding ? or is it just long enough to cover neck only ?

Asked by: mm_specialized
Hi, this base layer can be pulled up slightly but is intended principally to cover the neck.

Hello, the other base layers are recommended that you size down from your normal size jerseys/jackets. Is this winter base layer the same?

Asked by: vincenz
Hi, we recommend you also size down for this base layer. It has a high degree of stretch and comes up slightly large.

How is this differentiate to the regular long sleeve merino base layer besides a turtle neck? Is this base layer's merino wool material thicker than the long sleeve merino base layer?
