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 Rapha Classic Bibs 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. 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 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 Butter These are so soft, I feel like I'm in a bathtub full of butter when I wear them. Truly "classic" and a must-have for your wardrobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didn't think the best could get better I love these bibs! I didn't think the Classics could be improved but these things feel more comfortable than the original classics which were the most comfortable bibs Rapha has made. The term "Luxurious" is very fitting to describe these, and they just disappear into your ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Chanois I've had these bibs for a couple of weeks, and although I have more than a dozen pairs, I am only wearing this one, it is just great: from the fit to the comfort and the quality of the chamois.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The silk pajamas of bib shorts Similar to the original Rapha classic bibs, these just slide on an feel like a second skin. Just the right amount of compression (minimal). The updated chamois is great and seems to support a larger range of positioning on the saddle - from full race tuck to upright - the coverage and comfort is impressive. The updated leg grippers do the job very comfortably as well. Really like the understated look and the pink highlight is a nice touch. I expect to get several years use out of these like my original Classic Bibs.

How is the length inseam?  As compared to Core bib (tend bit longer), and Super Lightweight bib (regular) 

Asked by: DogmaF8
We do not have specific measurements for these garments. However we would advise you to consult the size guide and this reflects an accurate sizing based upon the suggested dimensions. We do have a 90 day returns policy if the garment does not meet your suitability.

Never having owned a pair of Classic bibs before, what size would you recommend if the Pro Teams in Large feel great? 

Asked by: Thas Just Ballz
Hi, these shorts do have a slightly more relaxed fit than the Pro Team Bib Shorts. Some people choose to size down but we generally recommend you order the same size.

There is a classic bundle (classic jersey, classic shorts & merino arm warmers). The RCC classic products are the same price as the regular classic products. If I am a RCC member, is there a bundle offer available with RCC classic jersey, etc?
