Repeat Until Perfection

Introducing our new Pro Team jerseys, redesigned and refined for your fastest rides.

Focused on lightweight aerodynamics and painstakingly tailored with our proprietary materials, Pro Team is built to find the edge. With the facilities like our in-house Atelier, Materials Team, ‘Experiment Room’ and our twenty years spent tailoring on-bike apparel, the competitive advantage begins here at Rapha HQ. A global roster of wear-testers, riding and racing in every conceivable condition, alongside our teams and athletes, allows us to refine fit and materials intensively. An obsessive process which we repeat until perfection.

“It feels like a second skin. The new neck design is awesome because you don't feel anything. And the weight - there's almost nothing there.”

Pro Team Aero Jersey


The new Pro Team Aero Jersey for 2024 was informed by the same angles and innovations of fit and fabrication used in the development of the WorldTour race-winning Pro Team TT Aerosuit; with seam placement, panelling and textured fabric on the leading edges. The weight of the jersey was reduced by 13% for the men's version (to 110g) and 19% for the women's (100g) to help you ride even faster.


Our in-house atelier provides us with a greater flexibility and pace to revise and experiment infinite numbers of prototypes, reworking existing designs quickly when developing products. 28 construction mock-ups were built between Rapha’s atelier and the factory; then a similar number of sample versions wear-tested in different climates before the final design was perfected.


After researching and thoroughly testing two different fits to suit more body shapes, the design and development team eventually achieved a bespoke design for male and female anatomy shapes using one universal fit. Taking into consideration different riding positions, heights, builds and rider requirements, this final fit offers the ideal balance of compression and articulation to achieve faster speeds and improved performance.

‘We went over the previous designs with a magnifying glass in search of more speed and comfort’

Pro Team Training Jersey

Steps to Perfection

Again refinement to the construction was the focus, such as reducing unnecessary trim at the neck, arms and hem; allowing the fabric to breathe and to maximise comfort in key areas for long training rides. The overall engagement of the fit was fine-tuned with a longer sleeve length to provide that trademark Pro Team sleekness and maintain a racing mindset when doing the hard miles.

In the Pocket

Customer feedback suggested that more storage capacity was required in the pockets, so the construction was revised to find more room for long hours on the road. Elastic was removed and playing with seam and shape construction techniques in the ER (Experiment Room) in Rapha Works led to stitch lines being tucked back to create more volume. The resulting pockets have more volume and greater stability when loaded for a streamlined fit and zero distractions. The three cargo pockets have also been joined by a smaller zipped compartment for keeping valuables secure.

Material Gains

The dual-material combination was developed to aid cooling in mild to warm conditions. Using an Italian-milled front-body fabric for high-stretch but with enough compression to fit beautifully whether in or out of the saddle.
