Full-length, fleece-lined tights with chamois pad designed for winter riding.

Women's Padded Tights£136.00

Please select an item above


Soft, fleece-lined legwear for when the temperature drops

With exceptional warmth and stretch, these fleece-lined, high-waisted padded tights are made from quick-drying ThermoRoubaix® fabric that cocoons your legs, trapping warm air next to the skin. The dense knit of the tights helps water roll off the surface, adding an element of weather resistance, and the women's Cytech chamois pad is breathable and supremely comfortable. Like the Rapha Classic Shorts, the front panel of the tights is doubled over rather than stitched, to prevent chafing when you ride. A high-cut waist keeps your core warm and is held in place with a soft, silicone gripper.



  • High-rise waist for core insulation
  • Doubled over front panel to prevent chafing and rubbing
  • Fast-drying ThermoRoubaix® fabric that insulates and repels water to keep you warm and dry
  • Rear zip pocket to keep valuables secure



  • 45% nylon
  • 42% polyester
  • 13% elastane
Back panel:
  • 85% nylon
  • 15% elastane


  • Machine wash cool 30C
  • Do not soak
  • Do not bleach
  • Do not dry clean
  • Do not iron

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST CHAMOIS EVER MADE! Why did I wait so long.....? Expensive?? Yes! But TOTALLY worth it! The quality, fit and feel are impeccable! I have been riding bikes for 25years (commuting and cross country/downhill mountain biking) and this is the best chamois (winter tights and shorts) that I have ever worn. It doesn't matter the saddle or the length of time in it, comfortable the entire time! I will never buy another chamois again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great winter pants I previously purchased the unpadded bib knicks and a pair of shorts for winter but when these came back into stock I purchased a pair and have to say they are super comfortable, make going to the bathroom very simple, they look great on, pad is comfortable even on longer rides and they are warm without overheating. Wont be wearing anything else from now on. I always wear bib knicks in the summer but these stay up - the back of the pants is higher and the front sits comfortably.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tights Warm, confortable but fragile fabric. The slightest rub again Velcro create small defect in the outer fabric. It would be nice to have the same man model without the chamois or having the same design tights but more resistant fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tights ever! I was hesitant going into this purchase due to them not being bib tights but I am so happy I decided to purchase them. This is the most comfortable chamois I've ever owned, I've been on several 80k rides since owning this and I've had no issues. The high waist band is great, they don't slip down and look flattering. Most importantly they are warm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable "Bought for winter use but have worn in warmer weather also. Expected them to be thicker but still very comfortable. Attractive design and look."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fit Bought an x small as a size 8 and the fit is firm but flexible. Had my first ride in them yesterday. The front padding was uncomfortable for the first 20 miles, so was worried that I had made a vey expensive mistake, but the padding bedded in after that and was very comfortable for the rest of the ride. Went through a few showers and noticed that the fabric shed the water well - good beading. I am sure these tights are going to serve me well.

My measurements fall between xs and xxs, should I size up or down?  Thanks.

Asked by: BENL
Hi, if you are in between sizes, then it to a certain extent it will come down to personal preference. The Padded Tights are in line with the fit of our Women's Classic range and have a slightly looser fit than the Souplesse range. We would recommend you choose an xxs. As always, we do have a free 90 day returns policy if needed.

I like to ask is this pant good for summer hot weather? and long journey? planning for buy a pant to tour the Southern France in July. Is this pant good for this application?

Asked by: leung160
Hi, we suggest you choose Bib Shorts for riding in Southern France in July as the temperature will most likely be too high for tights.
