Medium-weight shorts designed for city riding

The Cotton Shorts are made with a medium-weight cotton twill fabric, and have a reinforced crotch gusset designed to alleviate pressure on seams when riding. The shorts have a zip-close front fly, with hook-and-eye closure and inside bearer button. A hidden ‘device’ pocket features on the left seam, and two rear pockets – one button-close pocket and one zip-close pocket with a covering flap – offer further safe storage of valuables while on the bike.

N.B. The cut of the Rapha Cotton City shorts offers a more relaxed fit than our Randonnée shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made Very happy with the shorts. The fabric is quite light, but they are well made and designed with attention to detail. The fit is good though i seem to be somewhere between 30 and 32. I'm skinny with long legs, a double fold up the cuffs make a size 30 look a bit short.

If I'm a 33 inch in my other shorts should I go up to 34 inch or go down to 32 inch?

Asked by: Shooz
You would be better choosing the 32 inch shorts as these shorts are a relaxed fit

I wear a size small in your Pro Team bib shorts, and typically wear a size 30" short in other brands. Should I stick with a size 30, or go down to 28 as many have suggested?

Asked by: MMBB
Hi, we would recommend you purchase your normal waist size. The shorts were designed to be true to size. As always we have a 90 day returns policy if needed.

are these in any rain-resistant/repelling?

I have purchased one down-size as recommended by Rapha. However, it seems like bit tight on my thigh. Do they get stretched a lot?

Asked by: saucin
Hi, the downsizing advice is in comparison to previous seasons. I.e downsizing one size from your previous waist size in our shorts. They are made of stretch cotton but if you are not completely happy, we do offer a 90 day returns policy.
