Women's Classic Shorts

Test ride any of Rapha’s Classic products to destruction and if you are not 100% satisfied within 30-days you can return them for a full refund.

NB: The short version of the Rapha Women's Shorts is 80mm shorter than the regular version.

Rapha Women’s Shorts combine the comfort and performance of the women's shorts without the inconvenience of bibs. They have a high waistband at the back featuring a soft gripper tape for a snug and secure fit. The front panel is doubled over rather than stitched to prevent digging in when riding and the chamois pad from specialist manufacturer Cytech is designed specifically for female riders.

They are made from a lightweight and durable stretch fabric and have a panel construction. The shorts are cut long in the leg for a more flattering shape. The seams of the shorts have been positioned to prevent chafing and inside are finished with soft, flatock stitching. Style elements include contrast cream binding on the back of the shorts, Rapha logos on each leg and reflective tabs to improve visibility.

"Every woman spends her life searching for the perfect pair of jeans, ones that are comfortable, look great, aren’t too fashionable but just stylish enough, are versatile, and even forgiving when she puts on a pound or two. Most never find those jeans. Somehow, maestros of cycle clothing Rapha have managed to address the female cyclist’s equivalent quest, the search for the perfect cycling shorts. I am going to show my hand right from the word go, here, I cannot recommend these shorts highly enough!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried Many Brands But This Is One Of The Best! Gentle grippers on the back of the waist and around the legs. I don't feel like I had to pour myself into these shorts and they are very comfortable. I've ridden 100 miles in these shorts at one shot and the padding never bunched up or the seams chafed. I would also like to add that there is subtle branding which I greatly appreciate!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fit and length choice I got xxs according sizing information, which is bit odd that xxs with 87 hip and 92 cm with xs size.I have flatter figure (not much curve) my hip smaller than xxs, waist is 64 cm which is just bigger than xxs. Fit is snugly , but more tighter fit than normally I prefer just around top of shorts. So next time I go xs. But length choice is awesome as I'm shorty and normal bib and shorts fall too long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The comfiest ever! Having had lots of other very good brands I was not prepared for the outstanding excellence of these Rapha Classic Shorts. The material is like a second skin, the wicking is fab but it is the pad which is superb. For me and my old bones it makes long distance rides bearable and when combined with the chamois cream I can cope with any conditions without soreness..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and flattering I bought these on recommendation and have not been disappointed. Comfortable on long rides you really get what you pay for. For Lycra shorts they are very flattering,stay in place on the leg, don't cut into your stomach.
