Unparalleled comfort and protection from autumn to spring

Using the same revolutionary wet-weather protective technology as the Short Sleeve Shadow Jersey, the Pro Team Long Sleeve Shadow Jersey has an improved cut for a close, on-bike fit and a new reflective armband to keep you visible under dark skies.

Developed in response to a request from Team Sky for kit that lacked the bulk of heavy winter clothing, yet kept their riders dry and comfortable in the worst weather conditions, the Pro Team Long Sleeve Shadow Jersey was worn by the team throughout the Spring Classics races, most notably by Wout Poels during his victory in the snow, sleet and rain of the 2016 Liège-Bastogne-Liège.

With the warmth and water resistance of a winter jacket but the race fit of a jersey, the fabric used in the Shadow collection has exceptional water repellant properties. Taped seams on the shoulders, the arms and the torso add another layer of resistance and ample pockets on the rear store ride provisions.

The Pro Team Shadow collection presents a truly revolutionary solution to an age-old problem in sportswear. Even the most expensive rainwear is usually made from a laminate material, with a plastic feel. This type of fabric traps heat and moisture close to the body resulting in a clammy jacket in which it is easy to overheat – not ideal for racing or hard training.

The fabric used in the Shadow range features a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, applied twice during the manufacturing process, making it ‘hydrophobic’ – water simply rolls off. The stretch-weave adds compression to create a race fit and micropores allow heat to move across the fabric membrane and away from the body, helping to regulate your temperature. With a soft, brushed inner, the jersey can be worn comfortably over a base layer, or even straight onto skin. This is elite racewear, made without compromises.

What they say about Shadow:

“I travelled back home after La Flèche Wallonne especially to have my Shadow kit for Liège-Bastogne-Liège and it allowed me to perform at my best, even in that tough weather.” – Wout Poels, Team Sky

"The new Shadow range is the future - even though it's already here. In terms of wet weather clothing it's the best equipment that's ever come into cycling.” – Ian Boswell, Team Sky

"​Rapha has discovered the Holy Grail in cycle kit - something totally and comprehensively water resistant that doesn’t boil you from the inside out​.” 4/5. The Times

“Shadow performs superbly. The fabric is thinner and lighter than that used in the Castelli Gabba, but impressively offers comparable wind-proofing. Water repellency is superb and the best I have seen on garments of this type.” 9/10. Cycling Weekly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bit of kit I own ! I've ridden this in a whole range of conditions and temperates and it is brilliant - which it should be for the price! The only time it wasn't was when I rode with a long sleeve merino top which held the moisture in but since then I have ridden in it with short sleeve tops or just base layers for temps that reach into early teens. The back pockets are quite tight fitting, so getting stuff in and out in long gloves can be a challenge but its a great outer top from late autumn, through winter to early spring ! As its a pro fit it does come up small so you'll probably need a size bigger than normal !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth price tag Never reviewed anything before ,until purchasing this amazing piece of kit ,swithered for ages on paying such a hefty price I decided to make the purchase and so glad I did ,wind resistance you don't feel any chill in arms or body and for downpours water just runs off ,even when it's washed it is ready to wear with its waterproof quality . Trust me it's the only jacket you will ever need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You need this! Now I know I need this but, didn't realise how nice it was going to be for riding in chilly conditions of up to 13-14c in the morning when not raining!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome jersey. It is hard to be warm, dry and not overheated when the weather ranges from 9-21 degrees C in the span of 5 hrs, including rain, wind and sun!!! But this one jersey is the perfect solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remarkable. I bought this jersey to ride in New Zealand knowing there was a high chance of continual rain. I rode for an entire day in the rain (think of riding under water and that's what the rain was like) at about 18 degrees with just the Shadow Jersey and a Pro Team sleeveless base layer. I was warm the entire time while moving. I was wet inside but its hard to say how much of this was sweat or water coming through. All in all I wouldn't choose any other piece of clothing to ride in the rain with. It was amazing. It has now turned into my early morning / fog / drizzle / cold jersey of choice. I am a medium 'Classic' and large 'Pro Team' - I bought a large. Waist was good and tight - sleeves could be tighter so water could bead off easier. But I don't have guns...

I normally wear XL chest 45in,would you suggest I order XXL in this jersey as reviews tend to suggest it runs on the small side

Asked by: Mick 2
The Pro Team range are designed to be more tight fitting as opposed to the rest of our other garments. If you prefer a more relaxed fitting garment then the XXL should be the more preferable fit. We do have a 90 day returns policy if the garment does not meet with your specifications.

How would you compare this to the pro team training jacket? I imagine that this jersey is thinner? Allowing for use in warmers temps? Highest comfortable C temp?

Asked by: Conza
The Pro Team Training Jacket is more suitable to cooler conditions and is thicker to work with the elements including the cold and wind. A jersey is going to have a thinner material and can be used on it's own on more moderate conditions. As we all regulate temperature differently it is hard to advice on the temperature range for the Jacket for individuals and differing exertion levels will also affect its properties.

Hi, both are warm jerseys but the Winter Windproof Jersey is our warmest jersey, designed for freezing conditions.

I will be riding in Girona quite soon where the temps will vary between 5-12/15%C over the duration of a ride. What base layer do you suggest I utilize with a long sleeve shadow jersey? Could I get away with a pro team short sleeve mesh base layer?

Asked by: Rueban B
Hi, a Pro Team Base Layer - Short Sleeve or Merino Mesh Base Layer - Short Sleeve would be a good choice.

Could this be layered with a base layer beneath the Pro Team Race Cape for the ultimate versatility in protection from extended wet and chilly conditions?

Asked by: GreatScott
Hi, you could wear this jersey and a base layer below the Pro Team Race Cape in very cold, wet conditions.

Asked by: Peel
Hi, we have taken on board feedback we received on the previous Shadow range and improved the fit.

Will this jersey be warm enough to ride in temperatures around 0? How this compares to the pro team soft shell jacket?

Asked by: marcus44
Hi, this jersey is designed for hard training rides and efforts in cold, wet weather. In terms of warmth, it falls somewhere between a winter jacket and long sleeve jersey. It is not quite as warm as the Pro Team Softshell Jacket and is not intended to be worn at 0 degrees celsius. However, you could layer the jersey with a jacket or gilet.
