High-wicking cycling base layer for hard summer riding
A base layer created for training in hot conditions and for elite-level racing. The main body is made from an open mesh that offers exceptional breathability and moisture transfer, while the stretch-Lycra side panels offer an enhanced fit.
The black sleeveless version reads 'LA TÊTE ET LES JAMBES', the title of a book written by the founding father of the Tour de France, Henri Desgrange. The pink sleeveless version features the slogan: “N’ONT-ILS PAS DES AILES?”. Famously, these were the words of race founder Henri Desgrange upon seeing three Tour cyclists manage to ride all the way to the top of the Galibier for the first time in 1911: “Do they have wings, these men who have risen to heights that even eagles wouldn’t dare go?”
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.
“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.”
“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.”
