Streamlined racing jersey fit for the pros
Developed in the wind tunnel and worn at the highest level, the Pro Team Aero Jersey is the fastest jersey Rapha has ever made. This new colourburn edition is inspired by the visuals of the wind-mapping tests undertaken in its development. As the jersey is tested in the tunnel, a live graphic representation shows on a screen where the wind hits the rider and how effectively the jersey helps him cut through the air. Wind-mapping is a crucial tool in seeing exactly how the jersey’s different fabrics, cuts and seams combine together for the fastest possible jersey.
As durable and functional as it is fast, the jersey distils the insight gained in testing and pro competition to create a supremely aerodynamic product. The suit’s front and back fabric is smooth and dense to help improve airflow, while new longer sleeves made of a textured fabric create ‘turbulent flow’. This breaks up the air where the arms encounter wind resistance, thus enabling more efficient motion. Offset seam-positioning and a minimal number of pattern pieces reduce drag further, as does a close fit. Celebrate the beautiful science of speed with the Pro Team Aero Jersey – Colourburn.
NB: The sleeves of the Pro Team Aero Jersey are tighter than previous versions of the jersey due to the reduced stretch of the aerodynamic fabric.
