The evolution of a much-loved item of winter clothing by Rapha the RCC Pro Team Winter Tights with Pad II are designed for your coldest winter club rides. With a wind-blocking DWR (durable water repellent) fabric all the way up the front-facing panels to ward off the weather, the tights feature a breathable fabric on the rear allowing body heat to be released if you’re pushing hard on the pedals. The windblock panels create a compressive but comfortable fit on the bike, while the seat panel is reinforced with a rain and abrasion-resistant material that keeps the quick-drying chamois pad from getting wet. Inside, the tights have a brushed back fleece fabric for a touch of comfort in the cold, while the uppers feature a perforated central panel for temperature regulation and a new wicking fabric for improved moisture management. Reflective tabs and Pro Team bars are positioned strategically on the back panel and legs to improve visibility in low light. And you’ll also be able to show your allegiance to the Rapha Cycling Club, with reflective RCC logos also positioned prominently.
