Cutting Edges

Pro Team Aero

Years of research and design at the top level of the sport have helped us make cycling’s fastest kit. Now it’s time to up the high-speed stakes with a new collection designed for moving fast. This is Pro Team Aero.

The fundamentals of fast

Aerodynamic principles are applied to fabrics and designs that will help you move through the air faster.

Pro Team Aero Jersey

A lightweight and aerodynamic jersey designed for your fastest rides. Cut through the air in a jersey made with one thing in mind: speed.

Bonded seams join smooth front fabrics to textured rear fabrics, keeping your fastest side forward.

“Our WorldTour winning skinsuit was borne of thorough testing. Again, we compared materials, controlled variables, tested in wind tunnels and on the track to guide us to the best – and fastest – results.”

Simon Huntsman, Rapha Head of Research and Development

 

Pro Team Aerosuit

Made to race, an aerosuit that stems from race-winning research at the highest levels of the sport. Suit up and prepare to take flight. Also available in Rapha Cycling Club colours.

The back panel of the jersey and aerosuit has a directional nap – a fabric that’s smooth in one direction, textured in the other to aid airflow.

The aerosuit’s main zip has a guard to contain the lower puller, keeping it out of the way when you’re tucked tight in the drops.

“You spend a lot of time preparing the body. Training hours, nutrition. Good kit is the final piece of that puzzle.”

Andy Tennant, two-time track world champion
