Rapha leg and waist sizing info

Waist: natural waist measurement is taken from above the hips, close to the navel.
Inside Leg: from the crotch to the base of the ankle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best pad I've ridden in. Bought to use for spring time in UK. The pad is the most comfortable I've used. So good that I bought another lighter pair for the summer. Sizing is pretty accurate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra Warm, Extra Comfortable. Bought for our chilly Yorkshire start to the year, this bib is ideal for both winter wear under tights or for chilly spring days with knee warmers. Simple black product allows it to work well with lots of other Rapha bottom half accessories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be any better Have worn them about 4 times now. They just fit like a glove. Great bib shorts are really about the chamois comfort, the seems, and the seems around the bottom of the leg. What I mean is that you shouldn't notice them. And I don't with these. Sure, these are not cheap, but they are appropriately priced for the quality. I have some bibs which are about $70 less expensive, and no surprise that they are probably 25% less comfortable. I don't really use the key pocket on the back of the bibs, but that is a nice feature for those that may race with these - good place to stash a key.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and comfortable These bib shorts are very well made. I like the thermal insulating later that keep you warm. The fit is excellent and very comfortable chamois on the bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best cycling shorts i know With classic brooks saddles, or worse - 80s Plastic saddles, the cycling shorts are critical. These rapha shorts are just perfect, very enjoyable. Also the thicker material (combined with leg warmers) matches the weather conditions in germany.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What you really need for half of the year As I live in the southern parts of Sweden half of the year contains a lot of winds, some rain and tempratures below 12 degrees Celcius. Pair these with a good pair of legwarmers and you can use them down to 0 degrees or even less. The chammy is superb and you can spend a whole day in the saddle without any discomfort. The size is perfect also, not to long and not to short. I'm 185 cm and weigh about 75 kg. I have had other bibs from other brands but Rapha really makes the best without doubt

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, Comfortable and Well-Made Shorts Top quality and fit, as you would expect from Rapha. Have worn down to 0°C with leg warmers and have been toasty-warm. As usual with the Rapha materials and chamois pad, you hardly know you are wearing them, they are that comfortable. Exactly what I was looking for, for those colder days.

Which is warmer, classic or pro thermal bibs?

Asked by: Agent Cooper
Both Bibs use the same Roubaix fabric. The difference lies in the fit of the Bib Shorts as the Pro Team are a tighter, more streamlined cut for racing and training at high intensity, whereas the Classic Bib Shorts are designed for all day in the saddle comfort

Is the bib "slim fit" or "normal fit"?

Asked by: Rafita15
Hi, all of our Classic range has a more generous size unlike the Pro Team for example, which is more of a race fit.

Why are these bibs excluded from the classic guarnty?

Asked by: P Diddy
Hi, the Classics Guarantee was designed to offer a chance to ride-test classic items that helped to establish the Rapha brand. This is four of our original items, the Classic Bib shorts, Jersey, Wind jacket and Winter Tights.

At what temperature ranges do suggest reaching for these thermals over standard classic bibs?

Asked by: Dooly
Hi, it always difficult to give exact temperatures as it will depend on your own temperature regulation and exertion level. However, we would recommend using the thermal bibs from temperatures around 10-12 degrees celsius and below. I hope that helps.

I'm in-between sizes (31 inch waist), is it better to size up or down?

Asked by: theantichristy
Hi Nate. We suggest sizing up. But we do have a 90 day return period should you wish to exchange then for the smaller size.
