Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This cream is both luxurious and practical at the same time. It also smells fantastic as you apply, leaves you with a non-sticky, not too shiny finish, and lasts all day even with a minimal application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smells fast It protects the skin against dryness, elements and smells like a walk in a seaside park. Excellent, my dog wanted to eat it. That's ultimate praise. It stains the fabric, so keep it black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent. Been using this for the last 2 years and couldn't think to ride without it. My tired legs feel better after applying and a little goes a long way. Also smells great and although expensive, for me it's an essential part of my pre ride preparation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Part of my "must have" list This was the first embrocation I'd used since I was 16 and was pretty skeptical. Having used it for awhile now, I'm a convert. Smells good, goes on easy and provides comfortable weather protection in cool morning starts without leaving your legs feeling on fire in the warm/hot afternoons. Be cautious using this around white / light coloured clothing as it will stain them. Also be aware that dust and dirt sticks to your legs more easily with this, though a quick wipe down at the cafe takes care of that if it bothers you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features ! I had bought this Rapha product in Summer at first during Tour de France 2015 and it helps me to keep my legs OK, especially during very hot and very sunny days. So I decided to buy another one for this year season.

How do we use this? Apply to our legs before riding? For example if we are going to ride in the late morning, do we use this?

Asked by: kennyleow
Hi, you apply this shortly before you head out for your ride. You can use the Summer Embrocation at any time of day.

How does this work in regards to sunscreen? I usually use an oil based sunscreen with a high factor to stop burning on hot days. Will this protect me like sunscreen?

Asked by: Paddy Wagon
Hi, this will not protect like a sunscreen, if does not contain any SPF. We recommend applying a sunscreen with a high SPF to avoid skin damage.
