Rapha AERO

Developed for years to save you seconds.


Wind tunnel testing and cutting-edge materials combine in the design of Rapha’s Souplesse Long Sleeve Aero Jersey, our fastest race jersey ever. Leading edges utilise smooth fabrics and trailing surfaces use rough textures with bonded seams for an aerodynamic advantage, that minimises drag and helps you to cut through the air.

Smooth fabrics on the front transition air away from the frontal area as efficiently as possible while the textured fabrics on the back of the sleeves and across the shoulders create turbulent airflow in the low-pressure wake behind a rider’s body to ensure effort equates to speed. The back panel is made of a sleek material with a directional nap – smooth in one direction, rough in the other – that further reduces drag and gives a figure-hugging fit. This light and stretchy material also has bonded tape inside to support your pockets when you fill them. Inside the pockets, a layer of mesh aids breathability across the lower back while a essentials pocket with an easy-pull zip provides easy one-handed access to valuables. The front zip has an extended placket to stop it from rubbing your bibs when you’re tucked tight in the drops. Ride at speed safe in the knowledge your jersey won’t be holding you back.

“When i hear ‘aero’, i usually assume tight and uncomfortable. Not with rapha, this jersey perfectly combines comfort with speed.”
– Alice Barnes, CANYON//SRAM professional rider
