Rapha winter clothing – first look

Jacket, jersey, lined short, leg warmers, and collar go under the microscope

Rapha leg warmer

We’ll be pairing the Pro Team Thermal Short with Rapha’s leg warmer: a full-length, Roubaix-lined cover, secured at either end with grip tape, and with a zip at the ankle. The seams are off-set, making this warmer a more sophisticated construction than the traditional fabric tube. Rapha intend the design to reduce chafing, and we’ll report on its degree of success in our review.

The Rapha leg warmer has off-set seams intended to reduce chafing, grip tape at either end, and a zip above the ankle

The warmers are shaped for the left and right leg, and there’s an elegant, black-on-black embossed logo above the ankle of the left to help distinguish between the two. A reflective tab on the calf of each is likely to be picked out by car headlights – a nice detail.

The Rapha leg warmer is available in black, and in three sizes from small to large. It costs £45.
