Rapha’s iconic jersey, all year round
Based on the bestselling Classic Jersey II, a product that has been in the Rapha collection since day one, the Classic Long Sleeve Jersey II features an innovative merino-wool-based fabric and comes in a range of beautiful colours.
Updated with an improved fit, bonding rather than stitching to save weight, and an all new, proprietary merino-based fabric, RPM190 (Rapha Performance Merino - the 190 indicates grams per square metre). Unlike generic merino-blends, RPM190 is light, soft, breathable and adaptable to a huge range of conditions, and while heavier than the fabric used in the short sleeve version, it is lighter than the fabric used in first iteration on the Long Sleeve Jersey. Offering excellent pocket support and comfort in a wide range of temperatures, RPM is the most versatile cycling fabric in the world.
“Rapha's Classic Long Sleeve Jersey II is better than ever, with an improved fit and better breathability ensuring it's still a solid choice for winter cycling. Here is a well-designed, comfortable, warm and soft-next-to-the-skin jersey that is ideal for winter rides, either worn as a top layer over a baselayer or underneath a jacket.”
