When it’s that bit too cold for just bib shorts or its getting towards the temperature when you are not quite sure whether full leggings are the best choice, a good pair of leg warmers is a great option. As we’ve come to expect from Rapha’s cycling apparel, the Rapha Leg Warmers are well made, do a simple job well and have a few nice details.

Firstly, the fleece backed Roubaix lining is soft on your legs and more importantly does a good job of keeping your legs warm.
