Rapha's Merino jerseys have long been a staple of the riding wardrobes of several members of BikeRadar staff.

Matched with arm warmers and a thick baselayer for the winter, or something lighter for the summer, we reckon this Merino rich, tricolour jersey will be good for year-round riding, no matter what the weather.

Rapha women's Flyweight jersey  — £95 £75 / $125 $100 / AU$180 AU$145

If you're looking for something solely for the warmer months, we highly recommend Rapha's line of Flyweight jerseys. 

Made of super lightweight materials, the "relaxed fit of the jersey is cut to sit slightly away from the skin", which is said to "allow air to flow around the body and keep you cool." 

Sounds good to us, especially with a 20 percent saving.

Rapha Brevet gilet — £80 £60 / $120 $90 / AU$150 AU$115

We've long been fans of Rapha's Brevet line — while it's primarily designed to be as comfortable as possible for long rides, we've also found it to be a great option for day-to-day riding as well. 

The Brevet gilet is a classic in the Rapha lineup, with the offset zip, excellent colour options and reflective highlights making it instantly recognisable. 

Rapha Classic Bib Shorts II  — £165 £125 / $235 $175 / AU$285 AU$215

Rapha's super understated yet excellent quality bib shorts are among our favourites. 

From the cool, matt-finish Lycra to the light weight shoulder straps and low cut front to aid 'rest' stops, these are undoubtedly really well thought out and, we reckon, well worth the money.

Rapha Merino socks  — £15 £10 / $20 $15 / AU$27 $20

Can't stretch to something more indulgent? Buy some more socks

If you're not feeling particularly indulgent, you can always splurge a tenner on a set of fancy Merino socks. 

Available in a hue to suit pretty much every taste, these are a perfect gift for yourself or a cycling pal whose birthday you'd totally not forgotten.
