Rapha - Men's Cargo Winter Tights with Pad

An insulated winter tight with added storage and increased visibility.



Rapha’s Cargo Bib Shorts represented a major departure from traditional bib short design, featuring pockets on the legs and the lower back for comfort and versatility on every ride. Building on their success, we’ve applied the same design approach to the Explore Cargo Winter Tights.

Made from a fleece-backed fabric with a durable water repellent treatment, the tights are warm and shed water in all but concerted downpours. The redesigned calf section is made entirely of a highly reflective material printed with distinctive stripes. The continuous movement of this part of the body coupled with a reflective stripe at eye level drastically improves a rider’s visibility in low light conditions. For immediate access to essentials on the move, two pairs of pockets feature on the outside of the upper legs and on the lower back section. Those on the left hand side are made of a water-resistant fabric and feature a zipper for security, those on the right feature a mesh material with excellent stretch for extra capacity. Reflective logos on the leg pockets provide an additional hi-vis element.


Secure, streamlined

Two water-resistant zipped pockets and two mesh sleeves on the lower back and the left leg provide secure, streamlined storage.

Light up the night

Reflective panels vastly improve visibility in low light.

Go long

Made for long days in the saddle, the tights are firm fitting with a quick-drying chamois pad that’s dependable, day after day.

Take more, ride more

Pockets on the lower back and either leg pack more than your jersey pockets and keep essentials closer to hand.
