A new standard for performance, Value and comfort

Winter training is about focussing on the foundations of fitness. Get the basics right and everything else will fall into place.

The Core range is the result of thousands of hours of riding and development work, using knowledge gained on the road to focus on the essential elements that distinguish the best riding apparel. The Core collection sets a new standard for performance, value and comfort.

The Core Winter Tight is designed to keep you warm while you train or commute on cold winter roads, with legs made of a stretchy brushed-back fleece to keep your muscles warm, and bibs constructed from a lighter, stretchier material to emphasise comfort and allow perspiration to escape. Utilising the same construction as the best selling Core Bib Short, the seams lie flat and are contoured to stay in place through your full range of motion.

This version of the Core Winter Tight features the same proven pad as used in the Core Bib Short.


  • Brushed back fleece legs keep your working muscles warm
  • Wide straps provide exceptional comfort
  • Reflective stripes on the calves won’t be covered by overshoes
  • Same pad as Core Bib Short
  • Brushed back fleece material on the legs
  • Bibs are made of a lighter, stretchier material for comfort and perspiration flow
  • Ribbed construction of ankle cuffs matches Core Winter Jacket
  • Reflective ankle stripes
  • Subtle tonal branding


  • 83% nylon
  • 17% elastane


  • Machine wash 30°
  • Do not bleach
  • Do not tumble dry
  • Do not iron

  • Wash dark colours separately

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Cooler Weather This bib is perfect for cooler weather (40-60f). When I start in the morning it keeps you warm and as the day moves on it breathes to keep you feeling good throughout a long ride. The quote detail on the inside of the bib is a great touch as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny I have already purchased a of the Core bibs so the tights for winter were no brainier, very nice fit and comfortable

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Winter tights Nice fit. Chamois is comfortable. Warm and snug fit. Front of bib gives plenty of support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfy! Bought these two weeks ago and used them for the first time this weekend. They were so comfortable throughout my ride and kept me warm or the whole duration. This is my first pair of premium bib tights and I can safely say I will be using them for a very long time. You definitey get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Winter Tights I have been enjoying using these tights for a little while now, having purchased them just after they were released. They are nice and close fitting, just how I want them to be (I am 6'2" and 80kg and a Large fits me perfectly). They don't bunch at the knees like some tights, and are warm, but not too warm when you are giving it full gas. They seem to me the perfect balance of cost versus performance for a nice everyday tight to wear throughout winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, comfortable - perfect for cooler weather I've switched from shorts to tights in the last few weeks, and have started using these tights on my rides. So far, they have been brilliant - warm, well-fitting, and comfortable in the seat. They do exactly what they need to do. The subtle branding and styling is a plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Living in the Pacific Northwest where rides can encounter a wide range of weather can occur quickly, the Winter Tights have been a god-send. They make the whole ride much more enjoyable.

Can one apply the Rapha DWR spray treatment as listed on your site to these tights in order to give them a water repellent finish? 

Asked by: slowmovinglights
Hi, our Apparel Re-Proofer is best used on garments that are already waterproof and water-resistant as to restore water resistance. If this is applied to garments that are not originally water resistant, this will only somewhat aid with slowing down the process of permeation.

For a milder climate where fall / winter temps are 40s and 50s Fahrenheit at coldest, would you recommend these or leg warmers with bib shorts? Also, for a 30 waist, would you recommend small or medium?

Asked by: wyattlee
These garments have a brushed back fleece lining on the leg for added warmth in the winter, so this could be more suitable for winter conditions. For a 30 inch waist a Small size would be appropriate.

Due to the pad built in to these tights, can I simply wear them alone or do I have to wear them over my shorts or bib?

Asked by: G Free
These Tights are to be worn without Bib Shorts underneath as the Pad is the same you would find in our Core Bib Shorts

How do these tights compare with the Pro Team bib-tights?

Asked by: PhilHays
The Core Bib Tights will have a more relaxed fit with a slightly thicker pad then the Pro Team Tights which have a slim line race fit and a thinner pad.

Hi Rapha, is it possible to show a photo of the tights which shows the reflective areas lit up so that it's possible to gauge how big the reflective areas are? Thanks, John
