A new generation of Rapha's iconic jersey, the Classic Jersey II is lighter, softer, and more breathable.
A bestseller for over a decade, the Classic Jersey was Rapha's first-ever product. With an understated color-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 II 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 meter). 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.
