High-performance bib shorts for female riders

If you are unsure of which bibs or shorts to choose, take a look at our new Women's Bib Shorts Guide

Technical bib shorts for intense summer training and racing. The shorts use the same fabric as the acclaimed men’s Pro Team Bib Shorts, which have been tried and tested by Team Sky at the highest levels of pro road racing.

NB: The short version of the Souplesse Bib Shorts is 50mm shorter than the regular version.

The fabric is treated with coldblack®, a highly technical dye that reflects the sun’s rays to keep the fabric cool against the skin, and the Souplesse Bib Shorts have an aero fit, for maximum comfort in a ‘race’ position on the bike. The bib section went through many stages of testing and refinement, and the result is a fine and comfortable mesh that contours to accommodate different bust sizes and body types, ensuring a perfect silhouette. The straps use a mesh fabric for breathability, and the waist and legs are tailored for a supportive fit.

"The panelled construction is designed to sit close to the body when riding, and once the bibs are on you'll barely notice you're wearing them. The Lycra itself is treated with 'coldblack', which Rapha describes as a 'technical dye that reflects the sun's rays to keep the fabric cool against the skin'. In action, it works. As a fair-skinned woman, I really feel the heat as soon as the sun puts in an appearance, but the Souplesse bib shorts kept cool, even when in full sunshine."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfy bibs I own! Got an amazing price on sale and these babies fit like a glove. Superb quality as well. Could not ask for anything more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great comfort and fit Three months ago i started riding one day a week. I would cover between 40-55km each time. The souplesse bibs make the ride a pleasure with just the right amount of padding. The bib style eliminates a tight feeling around the waist that you get from bike shorts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice fit for the most part I really like the fabric of these bibs. However, I do prefer a shorter inseam. I don't know why cycling bibs and shorts need to be so long. It is true what people say: once you move to bibs from shorts, you will never go back. Although I didn't feel cycling shorts dug into my waist, these bibs do give you a sleeker feel and is comfortable on long rides. You don't have to worry about your wardrobe once riding. I do feel the chamois is too big on this bib. It's also bigger than the chamois on the Short version of the Souplesse black bibs that I also own. Please offer more short versions in the future. I'm 5'6", 137lbs with a lean athletic build for reference and bought the size small. i think if I wanted a tighter race fit, I may have been ok in the XS, but with more of the sausage roll fit in the thighs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clean lines, good fit Navy is the new black. :) Comfortable and true to size...wide leg band. I appreciate that Rapha came out with a similar bib short with a slightly shorter leg length and will try those next time I purchase as the regular is a bit long for me, but obviously not a reflection on the product. I'm just short.

I bought the black bib "Short" version in Small. It's a good fit. I purchased the navy in Regular length in Small. The chamois in the Navy is much larger than the one in the short version. Shouldn't it be the same fit except the leg length?

Asked by: Bittasweet
The Chamois has been updated with the most recent release of these garments. There will be subtle difference between the current release and previous releases of these Bib Shorts.
