Streamlined racing jersey fit for the pros
The Pro Team Aero Jersey is the fastest jersey Rapha has ever made. Redesigned for 2016, this garment was developed using wind-tunnel sessions with professional riders from Team Sky and then ridden by them – often to victory – at the world’s greatest races. As durable and functional as it is fast, the jersey distills 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. A performance-engineered jersey for uncompromising riders.
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.
