    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.
