The Evolution of a Classic

12 years, 12 changes

04 February 2016

Introducing the Classic Jersey II. Originally launched in 2004, the Classic Jersey was Rapha’s first ever jersey design. A bold expression of the company’s mission to create the world’s finest cycling apparel, it changed an industry. Predominantly black and cut from an unorthodox merino-wool-based fabric, one reporter declared it the “best bike jersey the world has ever seen”. This new version marks a significant evolution of the design, with a new proprietary rpm150 fabric and 11 other refinements to the fit and construction.

Rapha Performance Merino 150 (rpm150) is milled to Rapha’s exact specification for a balance of breathability, softness, and weight. Reconfigured to have a better on-bike fit, with repositioned shoulder seams, longer sleeves, and a better shape throughout. Bonded seams, bonded-in zips, bonded sleeve stripe and a bonded hem all reduce bulk and make for a cleaner finish. The rear pockets have been reconfigured for great stability and feature a pump loop and a stretch mesh lining in the valuables pocket.
