Rapha Pro Team Aero Jersey
Gone are the days of riding in ill-fitting jerseys, fighting the wind. The precise cut of the Pro Team Aero Jersey provides world-beating aerodynamic benefits at top speed while maintaining storage and ease-of-use functionality when riding fast.
The development of the jersey began as a project to deliver a selection of Team Sky skinsuits and jerseys that combined aerodynamic savings while retaining the versatility and functionality of the Pro Team Jersey. To do this, Rapha’s design team reconfigured the shoulder seams and pockets – the two main contributors to aerodynamic drag. A new high-stretch performance fabric has allowed the seams to be moved behind the shoulders, creating a smooth plane across the back of the jersey.
For versatility, a new, low-friction zipper with oversized pull-tab is included to allow easy adjustments with one hand, even when wearing winter gloves and refashioned pockets fit flush against the torso when empty, keeping you aero. Mesh side panels and tail provide breathability, and cable loops hold headphone or race radio cables. The fabric is treated with coldblack® technology, encouraging the diffusion of heat.
New for this season, the Pro Team Aero Jersey is available in a Data Print edition, featuring a graphical representation of the ride data generated by a Team Sky rider in a grand tour. The print’s chevrons relate to the length, cumulative elevation and relative difficulty of each stage...
