Delivers everyday essentials rooted in performance functionality. At the heart of the brand’s pared-back design philosophy, Core garments are a distillation of Rapha’s expertise at making the world’s best cycling clothing. Rapha Core is nothing more and nothing less than the basics, perfectly crafted, and should be training day staples for every discerning road cyclist.
For those into Rapha, it’s being marketed as their daily wear. As I was writing this, the weather turned so nice, I headed out for a ride in the new Core. Made of a soft, light-stretch fabric, this jersey is shaped for an on-bike fit, has attractive color-matched details throughout, and a deep-cut silicon gripper to ensure it stays in place when you’re riding. The capsule, first-ride review: exceptional fabric and design details is what you’ve come to expect from Rapha, it’s like the finest Italian kit with their branding.
