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.
