When riding a bicycle during cold weather, you need a thermal suit to keep you from freezing on the road. For days when the weather is more unpredictable, you need something that can handle ever-changing environmental conditions. The Rapha Pro Team Shadow Jersey is engineered to deliver the versatility those less-predictable days require.
Designed as a better alternative to traditional rainy weather laminate jerseys, it delivers the same water-repelling capabilities, without making you feel too hot when the weather decides to take a sunnier turn. That way, you’ll be comfortable on the road, regardless of whether the day turns up all-sun, all-rain, or in a constant state of change.
The Rapha Pro Team Shadow Jersey is made from a polyamide and elastane blend that compresses to keep things aerodynamic and wind-resistant, with a stretch-woven construction providing tiny gaps that allow body heat to escape. A DWR finish lets it repel water like your favorite rain jacket, while taped shoulder seams ensure no water can seep through during wetter conditions. It comes with a streamlined cut that compacts into a race-optimized fit, with ¾-sleeves providing better protection for the arms. A gripper elastic on the rear hem ensures it stays in place even during heavy exertion, while a brushed inner lining allows you to wear it comfortably without an extra layer during warmer days. Features include a chunky zip pull for more convenient use, three rear cargo pockets, and reflective strips on the rear arms.
Available now, the Rapha Pro Team Shadow Jersey is priced at $320.
