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 Pro Team Base Layer has flatlock seams throughout to ensure comfort and is available in two styles, each with a different print on the chest.

The black short sleeve version has the slogan 'NOUS MARCHONS À LA DYNAMITE', the words of Henri Pelissier describing how racers of his era were fuelled by an explosive concoction of stimulants.

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 white short sleeve version carries the legend, 'MERCI ROUBAIX', in honour of Franco Ballerini's memorable sign-off after his final Paris-Roubaix in 2001.

The white sleeveless version is available with choice of two slogans: VOUS ETES DES ASSASSINS , the famous exhortation from Octave Lapize after his 1910 ascent of the Col d' Aubisque; and CARPEGNA MI BASTA, Marco Pantani's nod to his beloved Monte Carpegna, the training ground for so many of Il Pirata's victories.

PLEASE NOTE: 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.

Key features:

  • Breathable mesh
  • Lycra side and shoulder panels
  • Cut for aggressive bike position
  • Bound neckline and arm holes
  • Anti-bacterial treatment

Reviews:

"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."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Base Layer for Summer Heat This base layer came highly recommended to me for hot weather riding and it has proven to be 100% spot on! I rode 300km over two days in hot sunny 34C temperatures, and the base layer performed flawlessly. Now, I won't ride without it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep cool on a warm weather I was amazed by the cooling capability. I'm 5'9" 70kg and I bought size M. For the sleeve version, I bought S. I live in a warm weathered country so I like how I can just unzip my jersey during cool down and get more air in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whant second one This is definitely not waste of money, used different layers before, Rapha one is just perfect. Once you put them on and ride then never go out without these base layers underneath. Climate does not matter. Calculated features - material, fit, design. Height 186 cm, L is good. Thanks guys.

Hi! I wear XS in all ranges except the Pro Team Jersey (in which I wear a small). I own an XS Merino Mesh Short Sleeve base layer that fits perfectly snug.How does the fit of the Pro Team Base layer compare to the merino mesh base layer in terms of size? 

Asked by: CliftonClubOJ
The Pro Team Base Layer has a race fit and will not be as relaxed as the Merino Base Layer. If the Pro Team size small suits your requirements you should adopt the same sizing if your order the base layer.

I wore size Large on Rapha jerseys. What size do I need to get on this?

Asked by: RobMa
The Large size would be suitable. The Pro Team range are however tight fitting and you may prefer to go a size up, but this is personal preference, the large size though should be fine.

Can this be worn by both women and men?

Asked by: Azebra
Hi, this base layer is designed to be a men's garment but some women do find it fits them well.
