Three-season weatherproof jersey made of a pioneering fabric

The Pro Team Shadow Jersey offers a revolutionary new approach to racing in bad weather. Using a stretch-woven fabric, this form-fitting jersey offers an unprecedented level of protection against the elements whilst offering breathable comfort under duress. This season’s jersey has been improved with a better on-bike fit, a reflective armband for visibility in low light and pockets with greater storage space.

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, the Shadow collection 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.

Streamlined to compact to your body shape and in a race fit, the Pro Team Short Sleeve Shadow Jersey has ¾ length sleeves for protection on the arms. Taped seams on the jersey’s shoulders add another level of rainwater protection where it matters most. The textured, chunky zip pull is designed for ease of use when wearing gloves and the Pro Team-embossed gripper elastic on the rear hem keeps the jersey in place even during exertion. Three rear cargo pockets give ample storage and drill holes at the bottom of each one let rainwater roll straight out.

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 an aero 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 Genius Great fit and material for spring and autumn in UK. Fits like PT range but skin tight. I've used in bad rain and it really works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well Have a Gabba and Perfetto but think the Shadow breathes better and works in a wider temperature range 2-16degC. The only advantage of Gabba/Perfetto is a superior colour range. I wear fluoro shoe covers and helmet to be seen and use lights to compensate for Shadow only coming in black. Tried both but opted for the short sleeve Shadow jersey with Shadow arm warmers over the long sleeve Shadow jersey. Arm warmers are more snug over a baselayer than the long sleeved jersey and a flexible option when no arm warmers are needed. Tighter around the waist compared to other Pro Team jerseys but fitted me perfectly when on the bike. I’m 5ft10in 66kg and bought medium. Used in light rain and stayed dry so all good there. 0-4degC used an insulated Gilet too which provides warmth and colour to help be seen. This jersey provides an ideal base for layering Autumn/Winter/Spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two garments in one! Read all the reviews before I bought this and there are 2 stand points I feel; 1. It fits / I’m prepared to put up with the issues such as dislocating my arm to get a gel out of my rear pocket. HOWEVER it’s more water repellant than my jacket and means I can ride in awful conditions all day and be comfortable and dry. Five stars. 2. It doesn’t fit so it’s no good. One star. So buy it. If it doesn’t fit send it back. If it fits then you’ll never be wet and miserable on your bike. Bonza!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic performance I've been wearing this jersey just as Autumn has arrived in the UK. Have found that coupled with with just a merino base layer and arm warmers the Pro Team Shadow Jersey is warm, wind and rain resistant. Very impressed with the performance .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer Been out for 2 hours of continuous rain, hilly circuit so plenty of cold descents. Shadow jersey excelled: didn't bake on the climbs, didn't shiver on the descents. Just a pro base layer underneath, very comfortable. Sorely tempted by other elements of the range

How does the sizing in this jersey compare to the Brevet jersey range? I wear a size M in the S/S Brevet, so should I assume a M or L size in the PT Shadow?

Asked by: AM Can
Hi, the Pro Team Shadow range is a bit tighter as the material is also stronger and stiffer so I suggest trying a size up.

Is the jersey suitable for the topics? Rains a lot here but it gets pretty hot and humid as well.

Asked by: Berdsg
This would be a suitable garment. It is breathable for hot and humid conditions and also contains ‘Hydrophobic’ rain protection.

Hi there! Is this Jersey wind-resistant? Melbourne weather has annoying wind from time to time and was wondering if this jersey would keep me away from the chill in early mornings or late evenings?

Asked by: JoeyK
Hi, this jersey is wind-resistant and should work well for those early mornings and late evenings.

What is the temperature range for the Shadow jersey?

Asked by: MGrayson60
Hi, it is hard to advise an exact temperature range as this will depend on your own exertion level and temperature regulation. However, this jersey can worn from 5/6-17 degrees Celsius, if combined with arm warmers for the cooler end of this range.
