Embro for cold racing conditions

Applying embrocation is one of the great rituals of riding. In recent years, it has enjoyed a renaissance thanks to its popularity on the American cyclocross circuit and Rapha Embrocation is used by Jeremy Powers, the 2014 US national cyclocross champion.

Rapha Embrocation is a highly effective winter embrocation for riding in cold conditions. It is made from three organic ingredients: winter green, capsicum, and vanilla. The embrocation is also rich in arnica. The embrocation contains a complex blend of essential oils, as well as shea butter, vitamin E and beeswax.

Rapha skincare products are made from the aromatic plants and herbs found on the Giant of Provence, used in local concoctions for hundreds of years. Their scents will be familiar to any rider that has made the pilgrimage to Mont Ventoux.

Ingredients include:

  • Atlas Cedar – a mild astringent reputedly good for relieving stress and tension.
  • Lavender – a natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory used to help ease aches and pains.
  • Pine needle – reputed to ease rheumatism and respiratory complaints.
  • Rosemary – characteristic Mediterranean aroma and general tonic to stimulate the senses.
  • Juniper Berry – a centuries-old boost the immune system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot sauce This is really nice stuff. Smells great, applies nicely, but best of all--it heats up when exposed to water, ie. you're out riding and it starts to rain. But don't take a shower too soon after applying! ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A UK winter must have Couldn’t be without this in the colder months, a little on the hips and lower back can keep you warm for a long ride in temperatures around zero celcius

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fire and Brimstone level heat for your pins. At this time of year bib tights and warmers are too warm. And nothing on the legs is a bit parky. So I invested in this. Slathered it on and within half an hour my legs felt toasty. Until I stopped at my folks for a cake and coffee. At which point it felt like Hades himself had grabbed my legs and dipped them in his fiery pit. Amazingly hot! It makes Tiger Balm and Deep Heat feel like a cool shower by comparison. Definitely the best cycling purchase for this type of autumn/winter type weather that I have made. Doesn’t keep you warm but keeps you FEELING warm when it’s not dipping below freezing. For then it’s bib tights. Recommended. Just wipe the bugger off before showering and wash your legs last...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my favourite embro with no afterburn my favourite embro ever. works great on but also washes off easy, no afterburn in the shower post ride (unlike many other embrocation formulas).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feel the heat. This product works, and is a must have for anyone that rides in cold temperatures. Product is easy to apply, has a pleasant aroma and provides a wonderful heating sensation to cold or sore muscles. Caution, follow the instructions provided and be very careful where you apply it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Toasty So glad I found this product, I was suffering from a bad knee and cramp now and again. Tried some of this cream and wow, no more aching knee or cramps. It takes about 30 mins to work but once the magic starts its so warm, it keeps your muscles from getting cold, you really feel it if you come to a stop at a junction as the heat turns up. Don't get me wrong it won't burn you, but just keeps you toasty. The smell is really pleasant, and you do not need to use a lot of the product. Warning wash your hands after application, you don't want this anywhere near your privates...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serious warmth for the muscles Have used the Summer version before and think it is great. Thought I would go for the winter one as the temps are dropping on the east coast. Used it in a cool morning and it provides serious warmth. One it says in the website, wash your hands really well after applying. Not something you want in your eye it elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time user I was sceptical about purchasing this. I use it now in 10 to 15 degree mornings when wearing short bibs. A little on the knees makes them move more freely. Great product.... im hooked

Do you need to have shaved legs for it to work best and what kind of UK temperatures is it most suitable for? Thanks

Asked by: Ben H
Hi, no you do not need to have shaved legs, though applying any cream to hairy legs will require a lot more blending in.
