RCC Pro Team Aero Jersey
The fastest cycling jersey we’ve ever made, with a 2017 upgrade. Proven in the wind tunnel, then ridden to victory at the world’s biggest races.
Our most aerodynamic cycling jersey
Developed using wind tunnel sessions with professional riders and then ridden to victory at the world’s greatest races, the RCC Pro Team Aero Jersey is the most aerodynamic cycling jersey Rapha has ever made. With an uncompromising, aggressive ‘aero fit’ suited to racing in the drops, this jersey comes in the Rapha Cycling Club’s racing colours and is designed for high speed training and competing in warm to hot conditions. Upgraded features for 2017 include a high stretch woven mesh fabric (same as the Pro Team Long Sleeve Aero Jersey) that offers a more comfortable fit on the arms than the 2016 version, a VISLON® zip that is easier to use with one hand and a smartly gusseted triple rear pocket construction that expands to store more ride essentials. A reflective piping is included on the rear, as is a breathable mesh panel under the pockets to help with airflow and temperature regulation.
Rapha worked with a world-leading aerodynamicist in the wind tunnel and did extensive track testing in early 2016 to ensure the performance of the jersey. The front and back fabric is smooth and dense to help improve airflow, while longer short sleeves made of the textured mesh fabric create ‘turbulent flow’. This breaks up the air where the arms encounter wind resistance, thus enabling more efficient motion through the wind. The sleeve fabric in this version stretches more than the one used on the 2016 garment, to fit a wider range of upper arm sizes. Offset seam positioning and a minimal number of pattern pieces reduce drag further, as does the extremely close fit. This cycling jersey represents the leading edge of Rapha’s performance technology, and the beautiful science of speed.
