Unparalleled comfort and protection from autumn to spring

Using the same revolutionary wet-weather protective technology as the Short Sleeve Shadow Jersey, the Pro Team Long Sleeve Shadow Jersey has an improved cut for a close, on-bike fit and a new reflective armband to keep you visible under dark skies.

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 conditions, the Pro Team Long Sleeve Shadow Jersey 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.

With the warmth and water resistance of a winter jacket but the race fit of a jersey, the fabric used in the Shadow collection has exceptional water repellant properties. Taped seams on the shoulders, the arms and the torso add another layer of resistance and ample pockets on the rear store ride provisions.

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 a race 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.
