Souplesse Aero Jersey
Previously only available in CANYON//SRAM team colours, the Souplesse Aero Jersey has been updated with a new fit and new fabric for 2017.
Streamlined and cut for racing, this is a cycling jersey designed for racing and high-performance riding. Our most aerodynamic jersey for women, the jersey uses a smooth fabric on the front and back of the body to enhance airflow and a new textured, woven fabric on the sleeve to create ‘turbulent flow’ – break up the air and reduce drag. A new aero collar is designed to sit flush against the skin in an on-bike position, and a new slimmer fit with reduced bulk across the body means the jersey is even more aerodynamic than before.
Best suited to riding in the heat, the Souplesse Aero Jersey wicks away moisture quickly and efficiently, keeping you cool and comfortable in hot conditions. A mesh yoke at the rear and a mesh lining inside the pockets increases ventilation in areas of high sweat.
Subtle design details include a rubberised Rapha logo and a Rapha logo printed on the left arm.
Souplesse Flyweight Bib Shorts
Designed for hot and humid conditions, in a super lightweight fabric, our Souplesse Flyweight Bib Shorts feature the same shaping and fit as the new Souplesse Bib Shorts II.
High-wicking and fast drying, the fabric is featherlight and gives the impression of being barely there, yet still offers excellent coverage.
Cut and shaped to sit perfectly on your legs in the on-bike position, we’ve eliminated unnecessary seams, streamlined the fit and removed excess fabric to avoid fabric bunching at the hip. A new, low profile and lightweight gripper gives a supportive but not overly-tight fit at the thigh.
The transparent mesh upper is incredibly light and features high-stretch bonded trims to eliminate chafing, rubbing and hot spots, without compromising on fit.
Details includes reflective logo and reflective tabs on the legs and a signature Souplesse centre back stripe.
"Whatever else it does, it certainly looks the part. If you don't fancy the Canyon SRAM team colours, the options are dark blue or high-vis pink. Both are plain yet stylish with small detailing including Rapha logos on the sleeve, rear and front of the jersey. The textured material on the sleeves also adds a subtle new element to the design."
