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-finish 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Shorts of choice. Bought these and did 80 miles in them straight away. I don't want to wear another pair of bib shorts again. 3 rides and 250 miles later I love them. Great looks and a great fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable I bought these bib shorts a couple of weeks ago and have worn them twice, both on century rides. They are very, very comfortable in all respects. The pad is great, the straps are very light and the length of the shorts legs are just right for this rider of 5'11". I bought size Large, and they fit very well for my 183 lbs frame, 33" waist. I strongly recommend these bibs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Black/Cream vs. Dark Grey I have been a long time Rapha customer, but this is the first time I've purchased bib shorts. The difference between the classic bib shorts and my old "daily drivers" is night and day. I purchased the black/cream and dark grey ones. I ride 5-6 times a week and am finding I only want to ride in my new Raphas. I will say the same thing many reviewers have been saying for years about the classic bib shorts: they're fantastic. What I can comment on that might be helpful to you is the difference in color between the black/cream and dark grey. The difference is hardly there. You need to have both bib shorts next to each other to notice a slightly lighter tone to the dark grey's. On their own, the dark grey bib shorts look black. I don't mind this in the slightest. Just know that if you're considering the dark grey bib shorts, they are truly dark. Wish I hadn't waited all these years before pulling the trigger on the classic bib shorts. I'm a very happy rider.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! Wore these shorts for the first time whilst cycling in Italy last week - long days in the saddle and plenty of hills in the heat. Very comfortable and not a sore spot to complain about on the undercarriage. Perfect fit too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bibs I own The materials and fit of these bib shorts is by far the most comfortable I own. Though the grippers are pretty thin, they stay very well on my (fat?) thighs. The fit is definitely comfortable without being confining with the level of support just right. Highly recommend these to anyone looking for a new set of bib shorts.

I am considering the classic and the lightweight as I live in Florida. Is the classic that much heavier in fabric that I would notice vs the lightweight? Also are the pads the same?

Asked by: Rossi2020
Hi, in very hot summer days you would notice the difference wearing the Lightweight as they are thinner in material and also have a thinner and a perforated chamois to enhance moisture transfer and help riders feeling cooler in the heat.

Hi, I have a 33 inch waist and 31 inch inside leg. Would a large or medium be a better option for size?

Asked by: SteveWinSC
Hi, as our Classic Bib Shirts have a more generous fit, I suggest you try the Medium. Should you need to exchange, we have a 90 days return period.

I have just received the classic bib shorts 11 you stated they have a new chamois! The ones I've received are identical to my Raphael core bib-shorts chamois please explain. I cannot see what the extra $105 Aus has given except bib& leg grip change.

Asked by: copy
Hi, our new Classic Bib Shorts do indeed have a new updated pad and the Core Bib Shorts benefit of having the same chamois pad used in all our Classic bib shorts. The rest of the construction and material of both shorts are different as is the fit.

is there much difference in the circumference of the bottom of the leg between a medium and large? only I'm 5ft 8 but got quite large thighs

Asked by: jjaayyyy
Hi, going up a size in any garment will affect the overall sizing including circumference. Though we do not suggest buying a large because of the leg if it means it will be big all over elsewhere. The Classic Bib Shorts are already our most generous in size/fit.

Is the dark grey essentially or close to black or is it evidently grey?

Asked by: DtweLve
This is a dark grey and can be referred to as an Anthracite Grey.

Hi there on the picture the Navy colorway actually looks rather like black with just upper elements in navy. is this correct ? Navy-white colorway looks like proper navy as opposed to above. pls advise. br m

Asked by: mm_specialized
The Navy colourway is the same for all the garments in this range. It is a dark but distinctive Navy.
