Rapha's Core range is designed for those who want quality road cycling attire at an approachable price point. With trickle-down design and technology from the Pro Team and Classic ranges, you get a great kit that fits and performs well, without breaking the bank. One of the primary tenets of the Core range is comfort, so you get a slightly more relaxed fit designed to prioritise endurance over outright speed.
The Core Long Sleeve Jersey is a simple but effective everyday jersey for cooler summer rides. The fabric is slightly thinker than that used on the short-sleeved Core Jersey for a little extra insulation and wind protection. It has a conventional triple-pocket layout on the back for storing ride essentials and a secure zipped pocket for valuables. The raglan sleeve construction ensures good articulation, comfort, and minimal bunching around the shoulders. A silicone print inside the hem prevents the jersey's rear from riding up, and the signature reflective armband adds some subtle styling and low-light visibility.
