It's been a funny old season; just a week since the Tour de France finished, and already it's time to start digging out the cold-weather layers. Weird.
But look at this: dropping like a crisp autumn leaf, here's a timely addition to Rapha's Pro Team range.
The new long-sleeve training jersey is part of Rapha's leading-edge Pro Team range, developed and proven from several years of close work with the world's best cyclists, including EF Pro Cycling and CANYON/SRAM.
Designed for training and racing in cooler conditions, Rapha say their new Pro Team Long Sleeve Training Jersey is "a perfect transition piece providing all-day comfort for long days in the saddle."
This long sleeve version of the Pro Team Training Jersey carries over all of the features of the short sleeve version, but adds full length sleeves to make it suitable for milder conditions.
Made with a breeze-blocking non-perforated fabric to the front, and the same 155gsm fabric as the short sleeve version on the back, it has a race fit that suits an in-the-drops, on-bike position.
The jersey maintains the stripped back Pro Team aesthetic, with elastic hems, set-in sleeves and a subtle Rapha armband. The pockets have been engineered to expand, allowing for greater volume for your ride essentials.
Fellas can choose from four colours: Dark Green, Off-white, Purple/Dark Navy & Black/Carbon Grey/White, while women have the Purple/Dark Navy or Black/Carbon Grey/White.
Priced £95, the Pro Team Training Jersey is available now at www.rapha.cc.
