Smart everyday comfort with a slim fit
If you are unsure of which style or cut of trouser to choose, take a look at our new City Legwear Fit Guide
Offering a slim fit with a gradually tapered lower leg, the Cotton Trousers have been created as definitive, everyday wear for city riding. The fabric, 98% cotton twill with 2% lycra for stretch, ensures superlative comfort and fit and an excellent range of movement when riding. The fabric is also designed to wear in over time to create a distinctive patina.
The side pockets are zipped for the safe storage of valuables, and the right-rear pocket also has a zip closure. The left-rear pocket has a button fastening and a hi-vis pink tab which can be exposed or hidden depending on your style preference. The hi-vis pink piping on the inside legs provides versatile functionality, and can be hidden or revealed depending on the visibility required.
The cut of these Rapha City trousers is more generous than in previous seasons. For the perfect fit we recommend downsizing by one size.

Rapha have gone easy on the bike-specific features with their new trousers, preferring hi-vis flashes and a focus on fit. The result is a pair of perfectly-cut trousers that will become a wardrobe staple both on and off the bike, manufactured with the sort of care and attention to detail the brand has become renowned for. Many cycle-friendly features remain, however, the most notable being the slight stretch in the fabric and the zipped pockets.
