A long sleeve version of the world’s greatest cycling jersey

The Classic Jersey was Rapha’s first ever product, launched in 2004. A bold expression of the company’s mission to create the world’s best cycling apparel, it changed the industry. Predominantly black and cut from an unorthodox merino-wool-based fabric, Bicycling Magazine’s Editor Bill Strickland declared it the ‘best bike jersey the world has ever seen.’

Ideal on top of a base layer for off-season training rides, or with a windproof shell for tough winter cycling the jersey is made from brushed-back Sportwool™, a breathable and insulating merino blend.

A versatile piece that functions well in a wide range of temperatures, the improved and more streamlined cut and fit offer better on-bike comfort. A bonded font hem, zip placket and sleeve panel have been introduced to reduce weight and bulk, and the reworked pocket construction gives secure storage.

FEATURES

  • Brushed back Sportwool™ fabric
  • Improved streamlined cut and fit for on-bike comfort

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best long sleeve I've ever worn It excellent, It's almost like I look forward to the rainy 8-10 degree rides because then I can wear it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Next Step Up From Classic Jersey with Arm Warmers Great autumn weight jersey ideal for those crisper early mornings. I am a huge fan of the Classic Short Sleeve Jersey and I can tell this will be my go-to jersey for the shoulder season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic long sleeve jersey Combined with the wind breaker, the jersey kept me warm in the cold. The sleeve length was good. I didn't feel like they were riding up my arms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as the first version! I have a few of the original classic L/S jersey and was always please with the fit and comfort. Always apprehensive when purchasing a 'new version' of my favourites, but I needn't have worried. The cut is very similar - close fitting and well cut. The material is marginally thinner than the original merino and I seemed to maintain a comfy temperature. Moisture-wicking properties are still great too. Pockets, elastic adjusters and gripper on the hem along with a well though through pocket design are all features that make this a good jersey, In summary, purchase this if you liked the original, need a nice cut jersey or want something for spring/autumn riding. You can't go wrong :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice for winter riding Warm jersey that fits nicely. Been using it for 3-4 hours ride in zero temperatures with a base layer under and a gilet on top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Versatile Jersey I Have Living and riding mountains in Southern California the temperature can drop relatively quickly. In the Winter and some times in the Spring time I regularly start rides in the sun shine and end the ride in snow up in the mountains. This jacket acts as both a jersey and a light jacket for me. My go to layering for nearly every day cycling with this is a good base layer, this jersey, and a hard shell. It comfortably sets me up for almost anything the weather down here throws at me this jersey being the integral part of that set. The most important thing is that this jersey is breathable enough so that in the sunshine rarely do I feel like my arms are too warm. That feeling of claustrophobia I have felt in the past from wearing long sleeve jerseys made of poorly breathing material does not exist with this garment. I want to say this is a 3 season garment for me here in Southern California but I'll bet that a ride in the warm summer nights down here would be wonderful in one of these jerseys. That being said I'll say it's a 3.5 season garment here. Near perfection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Llong sleeve Jersey button arms Product is great but your sizing could be more consistent. I wear large in some Rapha products and that size is normally fine. The size large in this product is way too small. The result is that I have to return what does not fit which is a hassle for both you and me.

Hi! I have an  Classicjersey (shortsleeve, first model of the Classic / Classic 1) in size L, and It fits very good. My question is if I can go for L in this jersey, or if the fit is smaller and tighter? I am 189cm and 86 kg, with rather long arms.

Asked by: Andy HF
Hi, we refined the fit slightly but we still recommend you order a large in this jersey.
