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.

Do you need to have shaved legs for it to work best and what kind of UK temperatures is it most suitable for? Thanks
Does the embro have a tint to it once you apply it to your legs?
Hi, does the embrocation provide any colour i.e. give you a tanned look like the summer embro?
Can you use this to warm muscles and knees while wearing cycling tights? Or is this strictly for bare legs?
