Pro Team protection from wind and rain
The Pro Team Softshell Jacket originates from a request from Rapha’s WorldTour riders for a wet-weather shell that would protect them from the elements, but also allow excess body heat and sweat to escape so they wouldn’t overheat when going flat out. The resulting jacket is made using Polartec’s innovative Power Shield Pro fabric, which strikes the perfect balance between protection and breathability. On the outside layer, a smooth and durable hydrophobic surface sheds water easily. Inside, a knitted surface contains a ‘micro-grid’ structure, a network of small squares to to wick sweat and disperse it quickly. Sandwiched between the two, the highly breathable Power Shield Pro membrane blocks 99% of the wind, while still allowing air and moisture out.
