    Default Rapha jersey question - no anti-Rapha content

    I may be ready to give a jersey a shot soon. Looks like Campagnolo Sportswear has gone shark jumping.

    Do the different Rapha jersey models have different cuts and/or fits?

    I liked the ones I saw on the Baller's Ride.

    In my limited experience yes, there is a different cut/fit to the club jersey and lightweight jersey in prior years. Looks like they have new racing jerseys too. Best to try before you buy.

    I have 6 or 7 Rapha ss jerseys and another 3 or 4 long sleeve. In the ss jerseys, the club, country and classic are all similar in cut with the club having a short zipper compared to the full from the country and classic. The new race line I think is pretty slim fitting and to my knowledge isn't sportwool. I love the jerseys and wear them year round including during the 100 degree weather we have had here lately.

    The club jersey fits a little more generously than the country and the classic which fits slimmer.

    Just bought a lightweight jersey in small (white with black armband) , it's too small for me. I could send it back but if someone wants it for cost i'd be glad to ship it to them. I sent in for a medium. I would think the small would fit someone in the 145lb range and a cyclists build . PM me, includes a 15% discount off retail.

    I picked up a Rapha birds jersey in sportwool - its the best jersey I own, no sag - can ride in cooler conditions and in the heat, doesn't stink and looks great.

    the club jerseys are a little more generous around the waist. they're also cut longer so you can wear them off the bike (according to rapha). the lightweight is definitely racier in cut. i haven't tried the pro yet. but i will say unequivocally that the club jersey is the most versatile jersey around.

    I can't speak for the difference in cut between the range, but the jerseys I have are top notch. Good fit and temperature regulation and they generally don't stink after a long, hot ride.

    Got my 'classic sportwool' and bib-shorts from cyclelife. I had to go with a slightly smaller jersey that I normally would, but it's seriously nice stuff.

    I can confirm the lightweight ss jerseys are cut slimmer and shorter than the classic or the club, but there are only two functional back pockets on the lightweight, which is a major limiter for me on long rides. Have not tried the race series.

    I scored two club jerseys the other day. I'm around 6'1 and ~84kgs and squeezed into a large. The extra large was far bigger and I like the fit a little tighter.

    Have yet to get out in them but I'll be keen to see the function meet the form.

    I have different fit perceptions than most here, I think.

    Order of "fittedness" (fittedness to less fittedness):
    Lightweight Jersey
    Club/Country - Some people are saying the club is larger than the country - both of mine appear to be the really close is size - if anything, the club fits tighter in the shoulders and same through the body as the Country - also, I have the older Country jersey with the 1/4 zip
    Classic Jersey

    For the Classic Jersey, I could size down and get a more fitted look. Their Pro line probably is the most fittest, and probably fits like Assos or something (just guessing).

    I'm about 5'10" 175 lbs and wear Mediums in all their stuff and again, could size down to a small in the classic jersey (at least I think I could).
