Rapha winter tights review£170.00

Quality details at a price

BikeRadar score2/5

Made from Thermo Roubaix, Rapha's winter tights are warm, soft and very comfortable. The details are up to the British company’s usual high standards, with a hidden zipped mesh pocket, waterproof seat panel, gummy ankle grippers and stirrups.

The Thermo Roubaix extends to the midriff and a garaged comfort break zip is a nice touch. They’re not padded, or wind or water-resistant, but our issue is the price: a pair of unpadded tights that cost the same as a competitor's all-singing, all-dancing ones can’t be justified.
