Rated 5 out of 5 by from Summer Embrocation I used Rapha Summer Embrocation whilst riding in Spain my long days in the saddle usually consisted of cool early morning starts through to sweltering 40 degree mountain top finishes. Rapha Embrocation helped me feel fresh and comfortable even on my hardest days in the saddle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent product Ideal product that provides warmth to the legs and a slight shine for those who want to look a little pro!!! Rapha rightly warn you about the potential to discolour socks but I also think it's worth while noting that a little go's a long way......

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beware of stains I am sure this is a good embrocation but it ruins any light coloured clothing it contacts. The straps on bib shorts? Beware. White socks? Forget it. Approach with caution.
