A bestseller for over a decade, the Classic Jersey was Rapha’s first ever product. With an understated colour-scheme and an innovative merino-wool-based fabric, it was a bold expression of our mission to create the world’s finest cycling apparel.
Twelve years in the making, the Classic Jersey has been updated with an improved fit, bonding rather than stitching to save weight, and an all new, proprietary merino-based fabric, RPM150 (Rapha Performance Merino - the 150 indicates grams per square metre). Unlike generic merino-blends, RPM150 is light, soft, breathable and adaptable to a huge range of conditions. Helping your body breathe in hot conditions and insulating when the temperature drops, we believe this to be the most versatile cycling fabric in the world, and it’s the product of Rapha’s tireless R&D.
