Award winning bib shorts with an improved chamois pad

A comfortable pair of cycling shorts is the most important clothing purchase any rider can make. Get them right and you can spend hours in the saddle without even noticing them. Get them wrong and every kilometre will feel like a hundred.

The Classic Bib Shorts II feature a new pad with body-contoured padding and a soft, chamois finish to provide all day comfort. Three pad sizes split across the Classic Bib range ensure the perfect fit from XS to XXL.

The shorts are made from a soft, matt-black Lycra with great stretch, while the bibs are made from a luxury mesh material, with a large cutaway section in the back to prevent overheating. For extra comfort in the saddle, Rapha's bib shorts have flatlock stitching throughout to prevent chafing, and a new, more efficient leg gripper that provides better grip at a reduced weight. The shorts also have a small key pocket, Rapha logos on the legs, and are cut low at the front for calls of nature.

Waist: natural waist measurement is taken from above the hips, close to the navel.
Inside Leg: from the crotch to the base of the ankle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A continued classic There's a reason for calling things "classic' and these are it. Updated straps are soft and not too short, grippers hold well, especially with leg/knee warmers. These are a go-to pair of bibs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have 7 ! This is the best cycling bibs you can buy. I bought 4 classic bibs years 3 years ago and they are still great after thousands and thousands of miles all over the world hot and cold. i just bought three more to go with my new uniform and the classic bib 2 is just as comfortable and they added an even better leg grip and a few new colors. YES they are pricey, but you can't put a price on comfort when doing multiple stage events consuming hundreds of miles!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made and comfortable! The padding is luxuriously thick, and the bibs are beautifully constructed. Does just fine in the heat! I'm 5'7 (170 cm) and 156 lbs (71 kg), and medium fit perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Sequel That Does Not Disappoint The previous incarnation of the Classic Bib Short was my favourite. I preferred them to other models in Rapha range, and to other brands that I have ridden in. Especially for rides longer than 100km / 5 hours. The Classic Bib Shorts II is my new favourite. The chamois pad, the key item in any bib short, is very comfortable. No pinching or pressure points, even after 150km. The bib fits well, with straps that are not overly tight. The shorts fit snugly but do not constrict, and the grippers do their job well. My requirement for bib shorts is that they do not intrude into my sensory awareness and enjoyment of my rides. The Classic Bib shorts II "disappear" when I ride. My thoughts may turn toward how a jersey pocket sits too high on my back, or how the nose piece on my glasses starts to pinch a bit after a few hours. But I have not, so far anyway, been distracted by a fit or comfort issue with my Classic Bib Shorts II. Even the Rapha logo on the navy and dark purple shorts is unobtrusive on the matt-black Lycra. After one ride in the Classic Bib Shorts II, I ordered another pair. They are that good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft stretchy bibs! Wore these for a morning ride in the hills of Whittier California, the bibs are very soft and they got some stretch in them the padding is in the right place and you can feel them working on the seat of each cheek, haha...Bought a Large, Dark grey, I'm 5'9 180lbs and they fit perfect!! There was a question on the length of the bibs legs, versus size i went with the size and I had about 2 or so inches above the knees. I wore the bibs with the Aero long sleeve in the Dark grey it was a grey on grey day!!! Love the color set combination, at least these are new colors and it's about time!!!!! I like these so much I purchased the blue bibs as well! Yaa Rapha...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problem The quality is excellent , the problem is the lower part of the leg , it's to large so it doesn't do a tight fit

I have a 35 inch waste. Should I order the large or extra large?

Asked by: FEJ1
The Large sizing concludes at 34 Inches which may make the large too small. The best option would be to order Extra Large size based on a 35 inch waist.
