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 ONE BAD JERSEY! Got this in December and raced in a COLD triathlon in early January. The first 41 miles on the bike was straight into a cold wind and all I wore was a Tri top, and compression sleeves under the Shadow jersey and not once did I ever feel uncomfortable. The longer I wore it, the more it settled in, and felt like a second skin. It was crazy how good it felt. It's tight and has all the good feelings of compression gear yet it never felt binding and constricting. I've already told most everyone I know that they need this in their cycling clothing arsenal. I've even ran in it a few times in bitter cold and it felt great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rapha plus Rapha always satisfies, and this item is pretty much perfect. Nothing about it I don’t like. The pro line is worth the extra geld.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best jersey I own Perfect for winter riding especially if it gets a bit wet. Wouldn't go near it in the summer. Excellent fit. Does what it says it does and looks nice

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shadow On My Side Surprisingly warm given how thin it is. Water repellency is excellent. Breath ability is also good although I felt perspiration gather in the elbows when worn over a sleeveless baselayer. A long sleeved baselayer addressed this and worn under the Shadiw jersey kept me warm and dry during a 2 hour ride in rain when the temperature was 6 deg C. There is a hint of a blouson in its styling, with more room in the upper arms and shoulders than other pro team jackets and jerseys, tapering to a narrower waist. Expensive but worth it.

Hi, I'm a short-torso 5'8'', 6'1'' wingspan and 36'' (unexpanded) chest. Would a Small be correct for me? I'd have gone for the short-sleeve + arm warmers like I've always done as long-sleeve jerseys just don't fit me but it seems to be unavailable.

Asked by: Slim58
Based on your sizing we would suggest the Medium Jersey in this item

Other than the sleeve length, can you confirm the differences between long and short sleeve shadow jerseys if there are any? 

Asked by: BarkerD
Hi, the Shadow Jersey is one garment which was offered in two different arm lengths.

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.

Asked by: Scurl

Asked by: RCM1
