The present article describes the ring imaging Cherenkov (RICH) detectors of the LHCb experiment. The two RICH detectors of LHCb contain three radiators, carefully designed to provide particle identification of B meson decays in the relevant momentum range of the experiment. A status of the design of the RICH system will be presented with the expected overall performance.
