High-performance cycling accessory made from soft merino wool

Made from a fabric developed exclusively by Rapha, these high-performance knee warmers combine the natural performance properties of merino wool with a degree of Lycra for stretch and durability. They provide insulation, are highly breathable and also transfer moisture effectively. The fabric is quick-drying so the knee warmers can be used in a variety of conditions.


They keep their shape throughout even a long ride and that’s a good thing. They also stay warm if they get a bit sweaty and are much more odour-resistant than most synthetic fabrics.
There’s just the one seam and it’s flatlock stitched so you can’t even feel it and a silicone rubber gripper stops the top from slipping.

To maintain and protect your merino products we recommend using Rapha Merino Wash »

Rapha Merino Wash has been specially formulated for Rapha merino products, with a gentle action that cleans without stripping out the natural oils that are the key to merino’s performance. Used regularly, the wash will remove dirt and refresh merino garments thanks to ingredients that include Rapha’s Ventoux fragrance. Inspired by the plants and herbs that grow on the slopes of the ‘Giant of Provence’, the wash also has natural Cedar extract to help repel moths.

Leg sizing

Thigh Circumference: Measure around the widest part of the thigh, half way from the knee.

Medium: M – L bib shorts
Large: XL - XXL bib shorts

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Bees Knees Super comfy and just the right warmth to weight ratio. I just finished a multi-day adventure ride and used these for hours and hours. They held up great and I could even give them a quick wash at the end of the day as they are fast drying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit Bought these last month and worn them a couple of times, the material is a pleasure to wear, and they do the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best knee warmers I've tried These are a great set of knee warmers. They don't bind at all when pedaling, and the wool is very soft on the skin. They might not be great in colder conditions, but you'd probably wear tights then anyways...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best knee warmers Although I have multiple knee/leg warmers from various highly regarded cycling kit brands, I purchased these before a Rapha Escape trip (temperature range 3C to 12C), mainly because the Rapha merino arm warmers are my favorites in my arm warmer collection. These Rapha knee warmers rise far above the competition in comfort and versatility, covering a wide range of cooler temperatures down to 0C. For subfreezing winter riding something else will be required. Perhaps the best attribute is that I am not aware of these warmers when I am wearing them - there do not hinder the cycling motion like my other warmers do. They easily fit into a back jersey pocket and easy to throw on at the top of climbs for long, cool descents. I will be purchasing a second set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic These really are great, I bought them to see me through the spring on those cool mornings. I've worn them this week, since the snow has gone, and they've been spot on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warmers for Cold Knees I wear knee warmers even though I have no knees, mine are cobalt chromium, but the soft tissue needs some protection in cool to cold weather. I needed another pair to add to the rotation and wanted something soft but warm. These work well. I have another brand that I wear for the coldest days, but for 50ish days, these are great.
