Review – Rapha Pro Team Long Sleeve Thermal Jersey

Rapha Pro Team Long Sleeve Thermal Jersey
The Rapha Pro Team Long Sleeve Jersey is a flexible and lightweight long sleeve cycling jersey that excels at offering high-wicking and highly breathable insulation for the transition seasons.

Made from a 185gsm fabric with a special micro-grid weave, it creates tiny air pockets within the layer to create insulation from cool autumn and spring temperatures. The micro-grid fabric also aids wicking performance by swiftly moving moisture build up from inside the jersey to the outside of the fabric—allowing it to evaporate with ease.

The fabric has a four-way stretch profile that creates a close-fitting profile with a compression race level cut. Elasticated grippers on the cuff and hems keep everything in check.

Pocketing comes in the form of three full sized rear pockets and one smaller zippered pocket for small valuables. The pockets are lined with a breathable mesh to stop the double layer of fabric compromising breathability.

The Rapha Pro Team Long Sleeve Jersey is one of the best fitted and best performing long sleeve cycling jerseys I have used to date. It can be worn with a short sleeve base layer in conditions around 8-15 degrees Celsius, or with a wind-blocking long sleeve base layer it could keep you comfortable even in lower temperatures close to zero.

I am a great fan of the bright orange colour and subtle reflective details for helping improve your road presence in low light conditions.

The perfect spring-autumn jersey for racing and training.
