Aerodynamic, lightweight bibs
Rapha’s first aerodynamic bib shorts offer elite performance without sacrificing comfort. They are ideal in any fast-riding or racing situation, yet durable and comfortable enough to be worn on longer outings. The high-stretch fabric is smooth to the touch, and the hem is ‘raw-cut’, with a direct-silicon gripper - this means the shorts sit entirely flush on your thighs, staying in position to reduce drag and potential chafing. The leg is also cut long on the thigh - approximately 5 cm longer than Pro Team Bib Shorts - while the panels of the shorts feature overlocked stitching for great flexibility and a very snug fit. Support is provided by soft, elastic-tape bib straps, which are wide enough to distribute weight comfortably. The low profile of the straps has been designed to complement the close-fitting Pro Team Aero Jersey perfectly. By using the same chamois pad as the Pro Team Bib Shorts, comfort in the saddle is guaranteed.
