Ride comfortably all day, wash and dry overnight

If you are unsure of which bib shorts to choose, take a look at our new Bib Shorts Guide »

These premium cycling shorts have two key benefits for long-distance cyclists: the chamois pad has been engineered with different foam densities to ensure longer-lasting comfort in the saddle. The chamois fabric has also been perforated, so the shorts can be washed and then quickly dried overnight, ready to be worn again the following day. They are built for adventure. A wider silicone leg gripper also provides extra comfort when riding long-distances, while the bib’s fabric and strap mesh is made of the same proven Italian fabric as Rapha’s Classic Bib Shorts. A reflective Brevet stripe on the leg offers much needed visibility, and also ensures the Brevet Bib Shorts pair beautifully with other garments from the Brevet collection.

Reviews

"Available in either black or navy, the high quality you would expect from shorts at this price point does not disappoint. Supreme comfort from the chamois, soft polyamide/elastane material and thick straps combine to produce a great fitting pair of bibshorts that won’t become a distraction after a few hundred kilometres. Considered panelling on the shorts contributes to a lack of compression, but results in fewer seams — which can cause chafing on longer rides."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 million dollar question I already have a set of Pro team bibshorts and after the arrival of a brevet jersey I thought I'd get a pair of the brevet bibs. So, the5 million dollar question was, are the brevet bibs as good as the pro team? The simple answer is yes. A the pad as thick, comfortable and supportive as the proteam - I think about 95% as good but it's still seriously comfy. But the straps are more comfortable than the ones on the proteam version I have and the brevet is slightly thicker and warmer material wise. So I'd definitely recommend them and love riding in them. Next stop - core!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice shorts This is my second rapha bibshort purchase. 179 cm, 73 kg 84 waist, 96 hips and 98 chest. Following the size chart got medium proteam , couldn't even get them on! Returned. This time got Brevet shorts again in medium and they are on the loose side! Maybe I could go a small!! However very comfortable on. I hate tight bib straps and these you don't know are there. Worn 4 times. Quality seems good. Leg grippers could be tighter and my legs are at least a medium size. Perhaps the Classic medium would be a better fit somewhere in between. Going to do a 300km ride this weekend so will know more then.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brevet Shorts I already own proteam and Classic shorts. These are extremely comfortable similar to the classic in fit but slightly longer in the leg probably by a few mm but its noticeable. The straps are extremely comfortable like the classics. I do find the straps in pro team a bit shorter and therefore uncomfortable until I'm in the saddle. The reflective silkscreen on the legs is great for night riding and looks understated during the day. The pad is the same or maybe slightly more comfortable than the classics but its fractional (both pads are v.comfortable).All in all another well thought out comfortable pair of shorts which look great on and feel good after 100 miles in the saddle. Ridden in temp range 8 degrees to 28 degrees. Rain and Shine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive! But money well spent! This is my first pair of Rapha bib shorts; therefore, I cannot speak for other Rapha shorts. However, it does live up to its name. I can wear this pair of BREVET all day long, and I have. I wore it from 8:00am till about 5:30pm in a fairy warm day in May in Taipei. The whole morning till 1:30pm, I was in a meeting in a place without air-conditioning with the shorts underneath my dress pants which I had to put on after a thirty-minute ride. I came home after the meeting and went on for a two-hour ride. The whole time I was thinking "I can wear this all day long!" I am 5'8.5" and 157lb. Size M fits me well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great so far.. Ok. I'm a larger type cyclist at 107kg and 6'2. Usually I buy more economical sports kits but decided to splash out this once. The shorts have been worn twice and I have noticed a significant improvement in my comfort level. With my size I often get distance pains in the lower regions and neck and sometimes in the wrists. This week I wore these along with the matching top (the XXL's are a perfect fit) and straight away I felt more comfy and as the miles racked up this continued. The material of the shorts is good and the padding really provides a super level of comfort. I will be wearing and washing these at least once per week this summer so time will tell. Lastly, as well as the comfort, this was the best I ever looked in lycra....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comforatble Slightly looser fitting than the Classic, very comfortable and I like the writing on the leg being in Black. Overal a good quality addition to the wardrobe, esp for longer days in the saddle

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quality lacking I have been using Rapha Bob shorts, jerseys, gloves, etc. for a few years now and have always been happy and impressed with the quality of their products. I bought this brevet Bib short as I often ride long distances and endurance events and after using them for just a couple of relatively short rides (50-60 miles) I noticed the stitching holding the chamois pad to the short start to come out. Not very impressed with the quality of this particular product and will be returning it for a full refund.

Following on from Chopper: is "washing" in a machine with a spin cycle or, more realistically for a Brevet, in a washbasin and drip-dried overnight? During my last summer holiday I washed several (Rapha) clothes in a washbasin that took longer to dry.

Asked by: Scott Bolton
Hi, if you wash the clothes in a wash basin and without a spin cycle, they will take longer to dry, but the Brevet Bib Shorts will dry faster than our other bib shorts.

Is the leg length of the XS indeed shorter than the length of the S?  I see that the measurement is different (30 versus 32), but I wasn't sure if that then indicated that the length of the short is less on the XS.

Asked by: Sideshow
Hi, the Brevet Bib Shorts, as mentioned in the sizing guide, have an inseam of 30 & 32 respectively. Should you need to exchange, we have a 90 days return period.

Is the chamois comparable to the Classic Bib chamois but with perforations (like the lightweight) or is this a completely new product.

Asked by: Randal
Hi, the Brevet Bib Shorts have the same chamois pad as the Classic Bibs. However, the pad has been perforated to help reduce the drying time of the garment.

Asked by: Chopper

I wear a Medium in the pro bib shorts, would a medium be suitable for these ones?

Asked by: Ajm1
Hi, the cut on the Brevet Bib Shorts is not as aggressive as the Pro Team Bib Shorts. A medium should be a suitable size. Please do refer to our size guide for a more accurate measurement. We do have a free 90 returns period should you need to exchange.
