Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet Shorts Bought these shorts for the inaugural Ride Across Wisconsin with Jens Voight - this was a 175 mile single day ride with the Trek Factory team and 300 plus of their closest friends. I wanted a pair of shorts that would keep me cool and given me every advantage needed - I can tell you with certainty the Jens never saw me coming! The shorts are very well constructed and proved awesome in 50 miles of rain. They kept me cool and comfortable throughout with a super comfy insert. This is a very versatile short - you can ride it in a wide temp band - late spring to early fall.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks great, fits great, material quality is poor The fabric underneath the chamois is pilling after only 50km! I expected a more robust build for a premium bit of gear from Rapha. If this did not happen, I would give the product at least 4 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight Bibs - A Fashion Statement My fourth set of Rapha bib shorts, nothing wrong with the other three, but these are for the hotter summers we experience in Perth, Western Australia. They are certainly comfortable, perhaps a little less padding than the Classic bibs (though I have not tested this scientifically). They are nice and light, and very fashionable. There is a problem though. My wife caught me trying to get out for a ride with a base layer and jersey that did not match the colour of the leg band (in this case blue). This will not be a problem for Rapha though, as my wife is well versed in trawling the Rapha web site, and suggesting things I need.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality These shorts have been worn through the summer. pad is comfortable, material nice and lightweight. the only problem is the shoulder straps seem a bit tight, I have size M in both these and the classic shorts, classic shorts fit fine, I am 70kgs 5ft 10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality Had these a few weeks now..I got them for indoor training on zwift which I do about 4 sessions a week..so decided to splash out on some high quality bibs...found these amazing quality and fit..just one tiny thing ...when I first used them the silicon gripper seemed a little tight on the thigh..got used to it now but that's the only thing I would alter..otherwise perfect!!!! :-))

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great But Will They Hold Up I've waited a while to review these because I wasn't sure how they would hold up. After just one ride there was already a loose thread on the seam on the front of the left leg. Fortunately, it's absence seems not to have affected the durability of the shorts and after a month and several washings, I really like these shorts. They are a little tighter than the classic bib-shorts, especially at the leg-grippers. The first time I put them on, I wasn't sure how they would fit. I now look forward to hot and muggy days just to wear them. They are definitely lighter-weight but not at all transparent and show no signs of wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, but far from 'Lightweight' Within the realm of urban colloquialisms, 'lightweight' tends to be a negative term; yet in any sport, lightweight is a heaven-send. This being said, these Lightweight bibs are true heavyweight hard-hitters. I am more than pleased with the quality of the product--the seams are flat and well-finished, the chamois is divine, and the design of the product is second-to-none within warmer weather oriented cycling kit (though from my experience, the Pro Team Bibs are just as wonderful). Sizing-wise, the bibs are a bit more forgiving; when I order again, I will opt for an L in lieu of the XL which I thought I would need (legs are around 30" around in-season). Rapha once more hits the nail on the head with a high-quality product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good summer bibs. I wear these bibs almost every day. There is no reason not to, they feel good mile after mile and the colored band on the left leg is distinctive and coordinates with my jerseys. I look good and I feel good. If I could be a Rapha product designer for one day though the one thing I would alter is I would make the back panel a touch more robust. That area tends to wear from being stretched and leaves you a little exposed. That's all I'd change.
