A key accessory for chilly starts or changeable weather, knee warmers can help improve a rider’s performance in cold conditions. Rapha Merino Knee Warmers offer the natural performance properties of merino with Rapha’s characteristic styling.


High-performance cycling accessory made from soft merino wool

Made from a fabric developed exclusively by Rapha, these high-performance knee warmers combine the natural performance properties of merino wool with a degree of Lycra for stretch and durability. They provide insulation, are highly breathable and also transfer moisture effectively. The fabric is quick-drying so the knee warmers can be used in a variety of conditions.


They keep their shape throughout even a long ride and that’s a good thing. They also stay warm if they get a bit sweaty and are much more odour-resistant than most synthetic fabrics.
There’s just the one seam and it’s flatlock stitched so you can’t even feel it and a silicone rubber gripper stops the top from slipping.

To maintain and protect your merino products we recommend using Rapha Merino Wash »

Rapha Merino Wash has been specially formulated for Rapha merino products, with a gentle action that cleans without stripping out the natural oils that are the key to merino’s performance. Used regularly, the wash will remove dirt and refresh merino garments thanks to ingredients that include Rapha’s Ventoux fragrance. Inspired by the plants and herbs that grow on the slopes of the ‘Giant of Provence’, the wash also has natural Cedar extract to help repel moths.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A absolute must The merino knee warmers is a absolute must have garment. Keeps you warm on chilly mornings and does not get to warm later in The day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice fall riding gear Was worried when I first pulled these on as they seemed sheer and quite insubstantial. Pleasantly surprised after first use with the more warmth than expected and no lack of protection from the wind. Comparable to any competitors with less bulk and more comfort. Sizing is what you'd expect, at least in regards to size M.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for any day under 58 degree Love these things so far. Only a few hundred miles deep, but great warm and breathability. These things really scale as the day warms up and I never feel like I need to take them off as the temperature and workout increases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding! I'm extremely happy with my purchase. I'm very impressed with the quality of the product. I really like the silicone rubber gripper that prevents the top from slipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So warm, but just not too warm! I bought these especially for the Ride Across Britain (End to End) knowing that there would be early morning starts which might be chilly - I was right! These kept my knees warm, but in true merino style, not too warm and never cold. I bought the small size and the sizings were true to the measurements given. They fold up small like arm warmers so really easy to fit in my jersey pockets along with all the other stuff I was carrying. I can not recommend these enough and would even go as far to say - no cyclist should be without them :-)
