Rapha Women's Classic jersey review£125.00

Short-sleeved top + arm warmers

BikeRadar score4.5/5

Women whose shapely curves have prevented them enjoying Rapha’s cycling kit can now slip into something stylish as the brand offer their first female-specific clothing.

Similar in styling to the men’s and made of a merino and polyester mix, the Classic Jersey is warm on cool mornings, lovely and soft against the skin and wicks well.

The length is good, with gripper on the hem to keep it in place while riding, and it’s full of features – deep pockets, neck-friendly housing for the full-length zip (easy to get on and off and loads of venting) and a ‘bite’ patch on the collar.

After struggling to squash into various items of men’s Rapha kit it’s great to have something that fits comfortably around the bust and hips. Arm warmers are included, and it comes in black too.
