The Classic Jersey was Rapha’s first ever product. 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.’ Twelve years in the making, Rapha introduces a new generation, the Classic Jersey II. Brought up to speed for 2016, this highly evolved design is cut from a new proprietary merino-wool-based fabric, milled to Rapha’s exact specification. Called RPM150 (Rapha Performance Merino, the 150 indicates grams per square metre), it is lighter, softer and more breathable than generic merino-blends, adaptable to a huge range of conditions. Not stopping at the fabric, the construction of the jersey has also improved with a reworked fit and sections bonded rather than stitched. This reduces weight and bulk even further.
