Technical outer layer for cold-weather cycling
The Pro Team Jacket is designed for high-tempo interval training in cold weather. When you are riding on the limit in low temperatures, breathability and protection from the elements is essential. Using an innovative windproof Polartec® softshell with a perforated membrane and water-repellent treatment on the leading panels, the rear panels are made using Super-Roubaix for insulation and wicking where it matters. The jacket has a higher-cut waist at the front and lower hem at the back for an ‘aero’ fit, while the high collar offers greater protection in cold and wet conditions.
NB: The Pro Team Jacket is not fully waterproof. We recommend packing a Rapha Rain Jacket with you as a waterproof outer layer for training rides.
- Polartec® softshell membrane on chest, shoulders and arms (exclusive to Rapha).
- Super-Roubaix rear and underarm panels
- Race fit with side panels
- Reflective armband and trims
I’ve really enjoyed using this jacket. It doesn’t have the warmth of some other winter jackets, but for its stated purpose – fast training sessions where you’re going to be working hard – you can’t argue with that. It’s biggest draw is the fact that its so much more lightweight and slim-cut than most other jackets of this kind.
