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.


“Rapha's new Core bib tights offer excellent comfort, insulation and performance at a price that is more attainable than ever before for the London-based brand, and they're a decent rival to any other options for the same kind of money.”
★★★★☆ David Arthur, »

Inside Leg: from the crotch to the base of the ankle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great winter tight. I bought these for winter commmutes. I wish I had bought a smaller size as they are quite long for me, and now a little loose around my knees, my fault though. They are super comfy and warm and being a bigger lad, they come up nice and high and very supportive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great pait of winter bibs I have a couple of pair of core summer bibs so I decided to give these ago. They were comfotable straight out of the box . The're not too thick but still keep you warm. I have been wearing these on rides frm 30 miles to 55 miles in temperatures of between 1c and 8c without any issues. I am 174 cm and 88kgs and the large fits perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all rounder Have been riding in these since the autumn and they're great for mild and cold weather, in fact i hardly notice them which is what you really want with cycling apparel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first Rapha Cycling Tights I have always worn Castelli shorts and tights and thought since I loved the Rapha jacket so much, why not complete the set, very impressed, as good as the Castelli, although they do not set as well as them. They are warm, as its cold in Ireland and wet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and comfortable I bought these after giving another pair as a gift and seeing that they were well received. Warm but still light, and well constructed. The legs are a bit long (I'm 5'3) but they fold up easily at the bottom.

Asked by: Olga123
We would recommend you measure your waist size and consult the sizing guide for a more accurate sizing choice

If i'm a medium in Pro team bibs, would the medium in this relaxed fit still be best?

Asked by: JaquesOn
Hi, we do suggest to stay true to size. Though if you are a comfortable Medium in Pro Team you could possibly fit these in a small. Though it will depend on your personal preference as far as fit. Should you need to exchange or refund, we have a 90 days return period for new/unused garments with tags and in saleable condition.

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.
