A new design to protect racers in the foulest weather
A transformative garment that can be used to adapt all racing kit to be suitable for use in foul conditions, the Pro Team Softshell Base Layer acts as your first, and last, line of defence against the elements.
Constructed from two fabrics – a high-stretch, water-repellent 3-ply membrane for the front and rear panels, with a lighter fabric under the arms – the garment provides a great range of movement and comfort against the skin.
The Pro Team Softshell Base Layer has also been updated with a half-length front zip, allowing for ventilation when the temperature or the pace rise. The tailoring has been improved, too, with refined sleeve and neck size giving a more flexible fit, and a lighter performance fabric used under the arms giving a broader range of movement.
Flatlock stitched seams prevent chafing, and high-visibility details at the cuff and collar catch the eye in low-light conditions. The seams are taped at critical points along the shoulders and sleeves to prevent water penetration.
As with all Rapha Pro Team products, the Softshell Base Layer has race-ready tailoring, with a raised front hem for a better fit while in the drops.
