Ultra-packable wind vest

For riders who like to stay as bulk-free as possible during a fast ride, the Pro Team Lightweight Gilet is an extremely lightweight outer layer for use in spring and autumn conditions. Despite weighing only 76g, and easily fitting in a rear pocket, the garment provides a vital defence against cold winds or a drop in temperature. Originally designed for use by Team Sky’s cyclists during warm-ups, early-morning starts, or as a last-resort back-up if the weather suddenly changed, the gilet is shaped to suit an aggressive, in-the-drops riding position. A low-friction zip with oversized puller makes taking it on or off very easy, and a mesh-lined collar and rear panel prevents clamminess and allows for temperature regulation.

N.B. The two-way zip puller at the bottom of the jacket locks the zip in position when pointing upwards. Pointing it downwards allows it to open from the bottom up.

  • Extremely lightweight fabric (Medium size: 76g)
  • Easily packs into jersey pocket

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great lightweight gilet Great lightweight gilet to use for sping and early fall riding. It packs down nice and small, and fits niceley with the pro team jerseys. Color is very light blue which looks good with a different number of jersey color ways.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my best vests It is light, packs very small and yet blocks the wind/air when needed. The back is vented and thus I have never overheated with this vest. There are no pockets but the vest is perfect for early morning rides and then pack it away. The neck is a bit wide for my licking but that would be my only con and I would be nick picking...

Is the Pro Team Lightweight Gilet closer in fit to the Core Jersey or is it more race cut like the Pro Team Aero Jersey? I wear a medium in the Core but a large in the Pro Team Aero.

Asked by: Rob B
Hi, the Pro Team Lightweight Gilet is cut in line with the rest of the Pro Team range. We would recommend you purchase a large. As always, we do offer a free 90 day returns policy if needed.

Does this gilet have access to pockets of jersey worn underneath?

Asked by: Velotrainer
Hi, there is not direct access to the jersey pockets. However, the bottom of the jersey has a lot of stretch and you can lift this to reach the jersey pockets.

I wear a Pro Team Aero Jersey, size M (snug fit) size L is just a little less tight, still very wearable. Should I go up one size for this Gilet? Thnx

Asked by: rdc1
Hi, this gilet has a fit in line with the rest of the Pro Team range and we would recommend you chose the same size as would in a Pro Team Jersey. So for you, this would be Medium or Large depending on how you would like the gilet to fit.

This is my first gilet & rapha purchase. Ordered a size medium and it fits like a glove. I wear size medium in my current jersey's and am 6 ft (170lb) athletic build. lHow tight is the gilet supposed to be?  Should it be snug to the skin like pro jersey?

Asked by: Anonymous_rcc
Hi, the Pro Team range is designed to be fitted and race ready. The garment should feel snug, but not restrictive. We have a free 90 days return period should you wish to exchange the item.

Anyway to get the lower portion of the two-way zip to lock down? I find that it occasionally unzips over the course of the ride. 

Asked by: Nick S
As highlighted in the product details, the two-way zip puller at the bottom of the jacket locks the zip in position when pointing upwards. Pointing it downwards allows it to open from the bottom up.

I love the gilet ...I have a size XL but it is "flapping" at the shoulders and the sound is annoying. Is there something which I am missing on the fit or is the cut wrong for me?

Asked by: rickh
Hi, as we all differ in shape and form the cut of the gilet can fit some differntly and when travelling at high speed some fabric 'flap' may occur for some individuals

Asked by: M88GAV
Hi, the gilet does have a small amount of water resistance but will not sustain prolonged exposure to wet weather.
