For hot days, turbo training and everyday commutes

Quality cycling shorts that complement any ride. No straps provides cooling comfort on hot days and during intense training sessions, as well as convenience when changing quickly. Soft waist elastic keeps the shorts comfortably secure whether paired with your favourite jersey or worn under trousers or loose shorts during longer commutes. The main panels use a dense-knit fabric for support and modesty and laser-cut leg grippers lined with soft silicone for a close, comfortable fit. Flatlock seams are positioned carefully throughout to hold the shorts in place without chafing. The shorts’ design is purposefully understated, with subtle tonal branding. As with everything in the Rapha Core collection, these shorts are nothing more and nothing less than the basics, perfectly crafted. For every rider, wherever they ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit I had to wait for these shorts to come back into stock but the wait was worth it as these new Core Shorts are fantastic. Great fit and quality as always from Rapha but the actual Chamois pad itself is absolutly brilliant and miles more comfortable than any of my other cycle shorts from other companies. Will get another pair soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, Rapha Shorts I started cycling with Blackbottom wool shorts and a leather chamois, and only switched to Lycra when Pearlizumi came out with their Microsensor Pro shorts. In the spring I developed a cyclist perineal nodule and realized I had to make some changes. After being professionally fitted again, it turned out my saddle was too high and put too much pressure on the perineal area. Along with lowing the saddle and changing saddles on all my bikes, I wanted to switch to thicker chamois and found Rapha's to be the best. Though I had rarely worn bibs before, I accepted the Rapha's bibs though I thought about cutting the bib straps off my Core shorts. Bibs are a hassle when wearing a long sleeve undershirt or cycle touring. So it was a great surprise to have Rapha come out with the Core shorts. I never had a problem with other shorts staying up, and the Core shorts are even better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from feels like a dream Man, as soon as I slipped on these shorts they felt great. I like the low-key Rapha label and the leg grippers made of soft silicone is a nice touch. Generously padded chamois makes these shorts feel like a dream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Core Shorts for Men My new favorite short. Comfortable and well made. You should offer more shorts for those of us that don't care for bibs. I would also like to see a little color on these shorts, maybe a band on one leg that matches your jerseys.

I'm concerned about any gap between the back/top of the shorts and a jersey when in a riding position. Can you confirm if the back of the shorts has been designed to sit quite high up the on back so that no skin shows, when on the drops for example?

Asked by: Chrisontherun
These Shorts have been designed with a higher waistband that covers the lower back. The waistband also features a gripper that will ensure a secure fit when riding.

Leg length? Draw string?

Asked by: Softrock
These garments do not have a draw string but instead are soft waist elastic for a secure and comfortable fit and the leg length is dependent on size and is between 21 and 26cm.

Understated? Is there a Rapha logo on side or back? Pink or black! I'd prefer not but black would be ok. 

Asked by: der67
The Rapha logo is in black and is on the side of the shorts.
