A new long-sleeve cycling base layer designed to be worn under a jersey or jacket when training and racing in mild to cold conditions.

Pro Team Base Layer - Long Sleeve$44.00

Long sleeves for year-round comfort

This is a new long sleeve version of our popular Pro Team Short Sleeve and Sleeveless Base Layers, offering racing performance in mild to cold conditions. Wear this base layer under your jersey or jacket, and the open mesh body fabric will provide warmth, breathability and moisture transfer, while the stretch side panels ensure a close, Pro Team fit. Two new slogans are included on the front of the base layer: ‘QUÄL DICH, DU SAU!’ on the white version and ‘PÉDALER EN DANSEUSE’ on the black version. The former, meaning ‘torture yourself, you pig!’ in German, was shouted by Telekom rider Udo Bölts to Jan Ullrich during the 1997 Tour in an effort to draw the last ounces of strength from his fading team captain. The latter, meaning ‘to dance on the pedals’ in French, is an expression used to celebrate the style of riders able to make climbing look easy.

NB: The Pro Team Base Layer sizing is race-tight. Please select your regular jersey size or, if you want a more relaxed fit, move up one size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great baselayer They are a race fit but I much prefer the baselayer as a second skin. I bought a medium for a 76kg 175cm 99cm chest male

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly Warm This base layer is like magic. I don’t know how Rapha got a mesh, breathable textile to trap so much warmth but I’m so glad they did. My only complaint is that the sleeves are a bit too tight. They seem to be cut for someone with really skinny arms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps you warm This base layer keeps me warm in winter. I would say that it could be a bit longer as it slips out of trousers quite quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile base layer Wore this base layer under my pro team training jacket on a recent 3 degree ride and it performed well. It's comfortable and breathable and also regulates body temperature well, never getting too hot or too cold. I like the fit and styling, and can see it being useful through spring and autumn too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great base layer Bought this a month ago, having got a short sleeve version during the summer. Brilliant for regulating body temperature and wicking away sweat. I found this with another long sleeve merino base layer and long sleeve training jersey ample for tempo rides just above freezing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Missing piece to your winter layers The fit is great and kept me warm. Was the missing piece to my winter gear. Pairs perfect when it’s cold enough for long sleeve jersey weather but not full on winter jacket weather.

Is this base layer entirely wind proof?

Asked by: Bd1273
Hi, this base layer is not windproof. The top garment ought to be windproof, the purpose of the base layer is to keep warmth or cool whilst wicking sweat away from the skin.

I own a Pro Team Training Jersey in medium. For the exact same measurements for this base layer i have to go for Small. What is the fitting like?

Asked by: ParisRoubaix
The fitting for this garment is a close fitting race fit. If you take a medium in the Pro Team Training Jersey, you should be suitable for a medium in this Base Layer.

As I am woman, I wear size S. which size of the long sleeve base layer  would fit me the best? 

Asked by: Anat
This garment is a male designed garment though women can wear this Base Layer you should probably take a size down depending on your dimension, so take an XS. Please also consult the sizing guide.
