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 Why would you where any other shorts!! I purchased these shorts 2 weeks ago and I have to say we are in a totally different league when it comes to both quality and comfort. Rode a 40 miler when I first bought them with zero discomfort

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rapha Classic Big shorts Great fit as usual. Well worth spending the money on them. Another great present for my husband

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply brilliant. This is my third pair of Rapha bib shorts, which more or less says it all. The superb chamois makes a mockery of long rides, the supportive straps remain comfortable all day, and they look and feel expensive. Which they are, but you can always remortgage.

I have a leg length 75 cm, which is XS. But my waist is close to 90 cm, which belongs to size L according size guide. What size should I choose for a best fit?

Asked by: Alken
The Small would be too small based upon the dimensions you have provided. You could certainly try the Large size to see how this would fit. We do have a 90 day returns policy if the garment you choose does not meet your specific specifications.

hi will there be a difference in the length of the bibs between XL and XXL? I have a 36" waist and a long body. I ordered XXL but I think they may be too large. Please advise... Thanks

Asked by: simon v
Hi, there is a small difference in the bib length between x-large and xx-large. Based on your measurements, we would normally recommend you choose an x-large.
