An all-new product demanded by the pros

An alternative to leg warmers, the Pro Team Thigh Warmers offer protection against the cold without having to wear thermal bib shorts. Keep your quadriceps and hamstrings warm the same way the pros do, and save space in your early-season kitbag.

Rapha’s designers noticed the trend in the professional peloton for cyclists to modify their knee warmers so they could be worn over the thighs (underneath bib shorts) and decided to create the product for them properly. Leg warmers tend to saturate in the wet, so by reducing the fabric and covering just the key muscles, water can flow off embrocated legs during wet races.

Made from a comfortable yet hardwearing Thermoroubaix brushed-back fabric, and held in place with printed silicone grippers, the Pro Team Thigh Warmers are best suited to cold, wet or windy days, when maintaining warmth in the core and working muscles is a priority.

They are designed to cover the leg between the knee and the upper thigh, with the fabric stopping short of the articulated area of the bib shorts to ensure there is no rubbing or discomfort. When considering size, most riders choose the same size as their bib shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Surprised! Was sceptical bout this product but living in Perth Australia it doesn't make a lot of sense buying 2-3 pairs of thermal bibs for 6-8 weeks of cool weather. The thigh warmers fit perfectly under Lightweight bibs, Pro Team Lightweight bibs and Pro Team bib shorts. Read other reviews bout fit issues and lucky for me the fit was spot on. Size Small with a thigh circumference of 54cm and inside groin to knee length of 36cm. Been on 3 rides so far ranging between 70km and 100km and the warmers haven't moved, I get no irritation or chafing. Will be ordering a couple more pairs, but i can see this product being something that either fits you or it doesn't. Well worth a try.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for tall people!!!! Brought the large as an Xl in shorts and it said size comparative to shorts size but way to big so ordered a medium,much better but do still slide down the leg but overall I still like them. Good also as I'm 6ft 4 and hard to find long shorts so these work as short extensions

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good In Principle Not So In Reality Purchased these to wear under a pair of Pro Team bibs, The quality of them and the idea in principle is very good however in practice whilst they work at keeping your thighs warm they are longer than the legs on a pair of Pro Team bibs so to wear them comfortably they stick out of the bottom of your shorts, which I think looks a bit daft. If you attempt to wear them too high they left a nasty abrasion after a 2 hour ride on my inner/upper thigh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra warmth where it's needed I have been very happy with the Thigh wamers I purchased recently. I followed Rapha's suggestion to buy the same size I wear in ther shorts and the fit is perfect. They aren't bulky or obtrusive. I have been using them I'm riding the trainer due to the cold temperatures in my shop. They are comfortable and there aren't any chaffing issues. The extra warmth they provide for the Hamstrings and Quad muscles is just right!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit of kit. Stops my reoccurring problem of my left hamstring getting cold if it's breezy and tighten to the point it wrecks my ride. You forget you've even got them on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a necessity but... Unusual but once you change to riding almost always with lightweight bibs, these can add just enough warmth without bulk on certain occasions.
