Cycling Weekly Verdict

A high quality jersey, that fits well and is very comfortable. There are lighter jerseys out there, but the Rapha Pro Team Flyweight remains svelte without compromising functionality or durability. I would, however, suggest that I don't entirely see the point of this product when the Pro Team Aero Jersey is just as light, very breathable yet more aerodynamic.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    Very light

  • +

    Good fit on torso

  • +

    Good pockets

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Fit on the sleeves

  • -

    Might as well just get the aero jersey

I recently travelled to Tuscany and used it as an opportunity to test a range of hot weather kit, including the Rapha Pro Team Flyweight jersey as the temperatures were consistently between 30 and 40 degrees.

It proved an ideal testing ground and when riding through the hills and sweltering vineyards, this jersey performed brilliantly. It does an excellent job of wicking sweat and you don't feel it sticking to your skin, stopping the jersey becoming uncomfortable. The fabric feels really soft too and is no way itchy, as can be the case on lower quality and cheaper items.
