Cycling over-shorts ideal for commuting

Rapha’s Touring Shorts are a road riding interpretation of the cycling overshorts known to mountain bikers as “baggies”. They are made from a lightweight, breathable fabric and are versatile enough for both urban commutes and longer rides.

Designed to be worn over bib shorts, Touring Shorts have a slim, contemporary cut to ensure they won’t flap in the wind while on the bike. Performance features include a non-slip panel in the waistband to hold the shorts in position when riding and satin tapes inside the hems to stop them catching on undershorts.

Other details include a special gusset to prevent chafing and easy-to-use waist adjusters. A zipped pocket at the front of the shorts is cut shallow to prevent objects digging into the leg when cycling and the shorts have an additional rear pocket for carrying valuables. Reflective piping on the back of the legs helps make the rider more visible when riding in poor light.

Reviews:

"If you don’t want the Lycra budgie-smuggling look or equally unflattering “baggies”, Rapha’s classically tailored touring shorts tick all the right boxes."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slim fitting goodness. I have 3 of these bought over separate orders. They are that good. A back pocket for cash and an iphone. A small one in front just nice for a car key remote. The lack of side pockets help keep this pair of shorts neat. Anything else you need to bring along that wouldn't fit in a pair of pants should be in your hydration backpack anyway. The material is outstanding, tough and resilient against abrasion without being thick and stuffy. I use this for trail riding because I am not into the baggy loud look of most mountain bike brands. Cycling bibs or tights does not fit my enduro bike, so this is perfect for me. There is a silky band around the openings which makes the shorts non stick to thighs while cycling and the ring hook zippers are great for handling with gloves. The elastic material around the waist is a good idea for movement around the bike. These details really count.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Touring Longs These shorts are a good product but the legs are a bit too long and there could afford to be more pockets on a touring garment. The seat also displayed some material degradation after about 1500km of riding - maybe that is reasonable but I think my bibs last a lot longer before signs of wear appear.

Quickie re sizing; I usually wear S in Lycra shorts, but in casual wear jeans for example I'm between 30 and 31" (I get 31 where possible) and I wear them snug not baggy. Recommendations for size for these? 30 or 32... Thanks!

Asked by: theMUSETTE
Hi, it is always hard to advise on sizing as we all differ slightly. The Touring short does have a slim, tailored cut and we would advise trying the size 32. We do have a free 90 day return period should you find they do not fit.
