Women's Shadow Tights

A revolution in racewear


The Shadow Winter Tights are made of a technical performance fabric that delivers outstanding water and wind resistance while maintaining high stretch and breathability for a comfortable fit. Rapha Shadow technology was developed for use in the spring classic races of northern Europe, and has been raced to podiums at the highest level of the sport. It is tightly woven and high stretch, allowing maximum breathability and protection without the use of a membrane – the plastic layer used in most waterproofs. The Women’s Shadow Tights are pre-shaped for a supportive fit with a carefully positioned seams above and below the knee to avoid bunching of fabric. Designed for comfort against the skin, the inner is brushed for a smooth, frictionless finish and cut high on the back for additional warmth. Lightweight, breathable uppers with bonded edges sit comfortably beneath your jersey while reflective panels on the lower legs accentuate a rider’s pedal stroke movement to significantly improve visibility when riding in low light.

“Overall, the supreme fit of the Rapha Shadow Tights matches their genuine weather-performance. It's not often you get supple, waterproof and sweat-free without compromise, and I think it's this lack of compromise that sets the Shadow Tights apart…”
