When Dan Craven asked Rapha to design the kit for the Namibian cycling team to wear in Rio de Janeiro in August 2016, a special edition Pro Team Aero Jersey was included. A viral sensation during his time in Brazil, Dans adventures inspired Rapha to release the jersey he wore there.
This Pro Team Aero Jersey is a special release in the colours of the Namibian flag. The Pro Team Aero Jersey is built for speed, worn at the highest level of the sport. This garment was developed using wind-tunnel sessions with WorldTour pro riders and ridden to victory at the worlds greatest races.
Insight gained in testing and pro competition combine to create a supremely aerodynamic product. The jerseys front and back fabric is smooth and dense to help improve airflow, while new longer sleeves made of a textured fabric create turbulent flow. This breaks up the air where the arms encounter wind resistance, thus enabling more efficient motion. A close fit and offset seam-positioning with a minimal number of pattern pieces reduce drag further. A performance-engineered jersey for uncompromising riders.
NB: The sleeves of the Pro Team Aero Jersey are tighter than our standard Aero Jersey due to a different aerodynamic sleeve material. Special Namibia design for Dan Craven representing Namibia in the 2016 Olympics.
High-stretch, smooth performance fabric on body. Aero-optimised mesh-texture sleeves enable more efficient motion. Aggressive, race-ready Pro Team cut.
Offset seams placed at back of jersey to reduce drag. Reflective Pro Team convict stripes on front left and rear right. VISLON® zip (quick running moulded plastic teeth). Zip lock to prevent jersey opening while riding. Three rear pockets with bonded-on reinforced panels.
Mesh inner on rear pockets for improved ventilation. Rapha logo printed on left arm.
Elasticated rear bottom hem for snug fit. Drip dry in the shade. The item "Rapha Men's Cycling Jersey L Namibia Pro Team Special Edition RCC Olympics NEW" is in sale since Saturday, February 2, 2019.
