High-wicking base layer for summer riding

This is a cycling base layer created for riding and racing in warm to hot conditions. Developed in conjunction with professional cyclists, the main body is made from an open mesh fabric that offers exceptional breathability and moisture transfer, while the stretch side panels offer a close, Pro Team fit. A new version of the base layer has the phrase ‘SOLDATS DU CYCLISME’ across the chest. This French expression, meaning ‘soldiers of cycling’ was used by journalists to describe riders of the fearsomely difficult early editions of the Tour de France. The white short sleeve version reads ‘TANT QUE JE RESPIRE, J’ATTAQUE’ meaning ‘As long as I breathe, I attack’. A famous phrase said by French great Bernard Hinault, it reflects the Badger’s aggressive style of racing. The black short sleeve version has the slogan 'NOUS MARCHONS À LA DYNAMITE' (‘we run on dynamite’), the words of Henri Pelissier, the 1923 winner of the Tour, who was describing how racers of his era were fuelled by an explosive concoction of stimulants. The hi-vis pink short sleeve version of the base layer reads, ‘SE FRENI, NON VINCI’, a phrase uttered by Mario Cipollini that illustrates the great sprinter’s simple desire to win at all costs: “If you brake, you won’t win.”

NB: The Pro Team Base Layer sizing is race-tight. Please select your regular jersey size or, if you want a more relaxed fit, move up one size.

Reviews:

“Some people don’t see the point of wearing base layers in the summer but I almost always do, feeling more comfortable with one on. It’s up to you, naturally. Rapha’s Pro Team Base Layer really is one of the best I’ve used for hot rides and, believe me, I’ve used a hell of a lot over the years.” Road.cc

“From the moment it arrived, Rapha’s Pro Team Base Layer’s been on heavy rotation. And by heavy rotation I mean every ride. Extremely lightweight with a tailored fit and a highly effective wicking performance, this base layer should be on your radar if you’re looking for the best with a healthy dose of aesthetic seasoning.”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2nd Skin One very stylish base layer. I wear this on both hot and cold days. The fit is perfect and as always with Rapha, the design and detail is just perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent warm weather base layer. This works perfectly for me in 50+F weather under a thin short or long-sleeve jersey. Wicks sweat well, better than just a jersey. I got the rad pink version for a color accent where my jersey zips at the neck. Fit is same as all Rapha tops, which for me is XL, up a size from my shorts and tights. I'm 6'1" and 195 lbs, more of a sprinter build than a climber.

Hi, i picked up an x-small merino mesh base layer and sizing is just perfect, nice and tight.Would you recommend going for the same size with the pro team base layer?

Asked by: Polalex
You should fit into the XS Pro Team Base Layer as the sizing guide is accurate to the garments dimensions.

How often do is it recommended to wash this garment on very light rides (commuting) I have noticed no oder even after several days. I don't want to ruin it in the wash every night or permanent body mold                                

Asked by: Rick rick
Hi, this is very much a personal preference and as such we do not have any specific recommendation as long as the care label is followed when washing.
