The definitive technical garment for changeable conditions

When Rapha began working with Team Sky, its riders requested a wet-weather shell that protected them from the elements, but also breathed well and didn’t cause them to overheat when going flat out. The riders also wanted to be able to easily access food in foul weather. The result was the development of the Rapha Pro Team Softshell Jacket.

Following feedback from Team Sky and riders around the world, the Pro Team Softshell Jacket has been updated with Polartec’s innovative Power Shield Pro fabric, which strikes the perfect balance between protection and breathability. This is a jacket for riders who seek the highest levels of performance in wet conditions.

Zips on the cuffs and an oversized puller make the jacket easier to put on – and remove – with gloved hands. On warmer days the jacket can be worn directly over a Base Layer, acting as a weather-resistant jersey. When the temperature plummets, pair with a Base Layer and Pro Team Jersey. The fit is in line with the Pro Team collection, with a slim and close fit suited to a low riding position.

The fabric

Polartec’s Power Shield Pro is a three-layer laminate. On the outside layer, a smooth and durable hydrophobic surface sheds water easily. Inside, a knitted surface contains a ‘micro-grid’ structure, a network of small squares to increase the fabric’s ability to wick sweat and disperse it quickly. Sandwiched between the two, the highly breathable Power Shield Pro membrane blocks 99% of the wind, while still allowing air and moisture out. The result is a jacket that is breathable, highly water resistant and insulating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Temp rating Wore this for 4 hours with an average of 2 degrees C. Went 25 mins at -2C. Have also ridden in similar temps with rain and was ok. Only had the Rapha long sleeve marino jersey and insulated gillet underneath. Also had the pro team soft shell gloves and my finger tips got cold when it was sub 0, but generally fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Class and performance at its best I have just bought this in the yellow having already owned they grey.i have had the hardshell the Classic and the pro team jacket ( now called training jacket) and I can say with good authority this is the bomb of all the jackets. It's perfect in every way. I have used in all conditions from flat windy overcast days to hard climimg rides with no wind and this jacket has proved super versatile. I have kept warm down to 5 degrees and cool upto 15 degrees. Fit is tight with stretch which as others have said feels odd when standing but get in riding position and perfect. If you haven't purchased and were considering then this is the Jacket oh and it's pretty good in rain too

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I bought this about 1 month ago, Living in Scotland I wanted something that was visible, warm but reasonably aerodynamic for fast club runs that wouldn't flap. I usually wear a base layer and that's all you need underneath as this is not only warm but windproof providing great protection from cold biting winds. Additionally as you start to climb the breathability of this garment was also very good not making you feel like you're overheating! Allin all fantastic product - one of the best Rapha Garments I have! I am a 39" Chest and am a L in the Pro team perfect fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic jacket I bought this jacket just before the start of the winter season, and it's been nothing short of fantastic. One of the best bit of kits I've bought. Warm, good fit and good pocket space. Faultless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing jacket I put the Softshell jacket on for the first time and thought it was too snug. On the first ride the Softshell jacket just formed around me and with minimum base layers I was extremely comfortable.

Hi, I'm looking for a winter jacket for cold dry conditions (down to -2 degrees.)  Which jacket - pro team softshell or pro team training - would provide the best insulation? 

Asked by: Boxchucker
As we all regulate temperature differently it is hard to advice on the temperature range for individuals and differing exertion levels will also affect its properties. Both the Pro Team garments have a race fit and are designed for riding with high intensity efforts.

Which jacket is the warmest for winter riding out of the pro team soft shell or the pro team training jacket?

Asked by: Alex_1996
Hi, the Pro Team Training Jacket is slightly warmer, although this is not a big difference. We recommend you choose the Pro Team Softshell Jacket if you are expecting a particularly wet ride.

Is this jacket a replacement for the rain jacket I carry in my rear pocket? Would it fold down small enough or is it to be worn during cold winter days from the start. I need a breathable rain jacket that I don't sweat wearing and keeps me dry.

Asked by: Big Gee
Hi, this jacket is designed to be worn as a layer immediately over a jacket. It is windproof and water resistant and has been made with a new, improved fabric for this season to improve these qualities. If you are looking for a Rain Jacket to place in a rear pocket, the Pro Team Race Cape and Rain Jacket are the best options.

how well would this work in san diego, riding in the early mornings, climbing and at a quicker pace, temps normally hover around 40-60 degrees F. when were riding.

Asked by: plthree
Hi, temperature ranges are hard to advise as each person will regulate temperature differently but this jacket should work well in quick paced early morning rides from 35-55. At 60 degrees you may be slightly warm whilst riding hard uphill. I hope that helps.

Hi rapha. I ordered large and it could be a little bigger. Would you recommend exchange size? I would love to try both large and xlarge first to decide so I am hesitant on returning first. Would you recommend ordering xlarge again and return one?

Asked by: Peter112
Hi, it is hard for us to advise on this. It is up to you. This jacket does have a close, race ready fit so if it is feeling too tight around your chest then it would be best to size up. You should always test the fit when in an on-bike position to assess the size effectively.

Hi there, I normally take a medium size for Rapha jerseys which is a perfect fit. Wearing this jacket with a jersey or base layer, how would the sizing work, would a M size be correct or should it be sized up to L. Thx

Asked by: CabbageMan
Hi, please refer to the size guide as far as possible. However, with the information you have provided we would suggest you try a Large. Should you need to exchange, we have a 90 days return period.
