Award Winning Bib 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.

A comfortable pair of cycling shorts is the most important clothing purchase any rider can make. Get them right and you can spend hours in the saddle without even noticing them. Get them wrong and every kilometre will feel like a hundred. The Rapha Classic Bibs have been designed for total comfort.

The most important component in any bib shorts is the pad and Rapha shorts use the top of the range pad from specialists Cytech. It has slim, body-contoured padding and a soft, chamois finish.

The shorts are made from a soft, matt-black Lycra with great stretch. The bibs are made from a luxury mesh material with a large cutaway section in the back to prevent overheating. For extra comfort in the saddle, Rapha's bib shorts have flatlock stitching throughout to prevent chafing and are finished with soft gripper around the legs. The shorts also have a small key pocket, Rapha logos on the legs, and are cut low at the front for calls of nature.

"One of the best chamois I've ridden. Not only are the shorts comfortable but they are long-lasting. Normally the material wears out before the actual chamois does! The uppers on the shorts keep their elasticity and the bibs stay up without sagging." - Kristian House, Rapha Condor JLT professional
"Rapha's product offers a slightly tougher, more supportive short material (polyester with spandex) that earned universal praise for durability in the washer (a few testers put the shorts through a year of punishment) and comfort on the bike." - Awarded Editor's Choice by Bicycling Magazine, June 2010

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great experience!! I was using was purchased after three very soft and comfortable than wearing bib meantime. Throughout this fall to enjoy a ride with this bib. One unfortunate thing is durability problems. There is a problem with a little band around. I like to use for a long time without any problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around bib short I love the finish on the leg cuff better than the pro team short, no compression or issues with the silicon band. The compression of the shorts is perfect and they wash great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Comfortable First ride in these today. 60 miles and 6500 vertical feet. 4 hours in the saddle. Sizing is true. I'm 6"1, 200 lbs and size 34 waist. I bought a size large. Overall fit is perfect. Bibs are perfect length. Didn't even know they were there. Chamois is delightful. No annoying creases or folds digging into my under carriage. Elastic at legs snug, not tight. Front low cut served me well for nature's call. So far, I'm in love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great chamois and a classic look These bibs are a bit longer than some others, and the fabric is rather soft, lacking the compression of some other current offerings from competitors. The end result is a gloriously comfortably bib with killer looks. Some may miss a clear band at the bottom of the leg or an overly compressive fabric, but NO ONE will be disappointed by the typical Rapha quality chamois. Highly recommended.
