Taking technological cues from the skinsuit raced to world championship gold by the CANYON//SRAM team, this is the fastest jersey Rapha make. A trio of textured fabrics, cut into carefully positioned panels, combine to minimise drag and maximise speed.
Leading edges feature smooth fabrics to aid airflow away from the rider’s frontal area, while the back panel uses a sleek fabric with a directional nap – smooth one way, rough the other – to reduce turbulence. A third fabric with seashell-shaped indentations features across the shoulders with a bonded seam strategically placed to further aid airflow.
Bonded tape extends down the back panel to support the three pockets, which are lined with mesh to prevent overheating. The sleeves are cut long, extending to just above the elbow as per contemporary pro aesthetic. The collar stays low to avoid irritation around the chin while the full-length zip features an easy-glide puller and integrated placket to protect your bibs. The hem incorporates a sturdy, elasticated gripper for stability and rubberised Pro Team bars on the front panel for quick and easy removal.
