Embro for cold racing conditions

Applying embrocation is one of the great rituals of riding. In recent years, it has enjoyed a renaissance thanks to its popularity on the American cyclocross circuit and Rapha Embrocation is used by Jeremy Powers, the 2014 US national cyclocross champion.

Rapha Embrocation is a highly effective winter embrocation for riding in cold conditions. It is made from three organic ingredients: winter green, capsicum, and vanilla. The embrocation is also rich in arnica. The embrocation contains a complex blend of essential oils, as well as shea butter, vitamin E and beeswax.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hilarious! I bought the travel set for my husband for Christmas - he loves Rapha products. HIs post Christmas ride preparation was a little rushed and without his glasses he slathered on the Chamois cream........only to find it was the Embrocation. Literally the funniest Christmas moment ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very, very warm sensation that lasts for hours! This embrocation cream is the very best I've ever used! I've tried many but this is amazing. It's a little slow to react once applied, but give it ten minutes and it warms you like nothing else! It will also last for hours so ideal forking morning winter rides. Just be careful where you put it!! Keep away from sensitive areas? Lol Tintinhull recommend and will stick to this one now

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable glowing feeling A little goes a long way, (although best avoid any more delicate areas), creates a 'warm' glowing feeling which is heightened when ever a breeze or moisture penetrates through your winter layers. Easy to apply, lasts the duration of the average ride, smells great and washes off readily, a wonderful indulgence against the discomforts of winter riding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for winter Second year using it and one can lasts a full winter season. I wear 3/4 Bibs in the cold months and use this stuff on my calf's. Never let's me down. Also not a bad idea to put a wee bit under your nose if you are stuffed a bit to clear the old airways! Only need a very small amount, so it lasts a long time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A yen to get out I have only used the embrocation an couple of times. Easy to apply, great smelling and gave me a tingle and slight buzz which all added to a yen to get out. Given that we have some cold, wet mornings in Scotland I can see it really helping with training, and early season races.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little bit goes a long way!! This is an incredible product! The smell is like using aromatherapy, and when the sweat starts to roll, it heats up quickly. I use a little bit on my lower back, and it gets very, very warm. It's great on extremely cold days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it says on the tin Have used it a few times & yet to feel the cold. Even felt too warm on one occasion. Smell is not too overwhelming as I thought it would be. Would definitely buy it again

Is this water or oil based?  What color is the product on skin? Will it stain clothing?  How long does it stay on the skin?  Is it easy to remove from skin?

Asked by: Deacon13
Hi, the winter embrocation is oil based, when applied to the skin it is colorless. The embrocation should not stain garments but some articles of clothing may well be more delicate so an element of caution is suggested when applying. Simple soap and water is enough to remove from the skin.
