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.

Reviews:

4.5 / 5

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Look great but showing signs of wear already These are the first pair of cycle-specific trousers I have tried. Bought just a couple of weeks ago and worn for only a handful of short commutes (20 mins each way) and already the crotch is showing signs of wear. I'm hopeful this is as bad as it will get otherwise not convinced these will last for long...which is completely unlike any other Rapha product I own. Fit is fine and they look great on or off the bike. Will review again once I've worn these for a decent length of time but first impressions not what I'd expect from Rapha.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb fit and fabric As always, Rapha deliver a premium product with attention to all the right details. I am 6'2", 170lbs, and the 31's fit perfect. I prefer a bit of a cropped look, so I went with the short option, as I usually tailor my pants a bit. No need with these, they were spot on right out of the box, and continue to be so after a few washes. Clean, modern, slim fit, not too tight, with room in all the right places. I love the deep, zipped pockets. I bought these just before a trip traveling through Asia, and the zips really are nice when traveling abroad with travel docs, currency, etc. Will likely buy a second pair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good trousers - I bought 2 pairs As per usual with Rapha kit, well thought through, well made and comfortable. I mostly Brompton or Boris Bike between meetings in London, so need smart clothes that work on a bike. I have 2 very minor issues with them - 1. Not every city cyclist is built like Chris Hoy so the "slim" fit is not as slim as it could be (perhaps an opportunity for different cuts)? 2. if you ever put anything in your pocket (think phone) outline marks (looks like white fluff) immediately appear... could be a materials issue. All that being said - very good trousers and I bought a second pair - I have other cycling trousers from other large and small brands and these are the most comfortable/useful/wearable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent trousers, but you should know... Great fit. Great quality. Exactly as you would expect from Rapha. However, you should know a few things before purchasing. 1) The material is heavy. There is a heft and sturdiness to the fabric that certainly connotes quality and durability. It's comfortable--but on very hot days might be a bit warm. 2) FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS BEFORE WASHING. I did not on my first pair and now they're short and tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bets ever Being on the more athletically shaped side, I have trouble in slim cut, straight and of course skinny pants. The Rapha cotton trouser was the best fitting pant I'd ever worn. A little snug at first but broke in perfectly within a few days. The craftsmanship is exceptional and I've gotten tons of compliments. However, their best compliment has been that I bought another pair two weeks in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect pants Rapha's cycling line gets all the attention, but the clothes (trousers and jeans) are really the sleeper hit. The styling is modern but not insanely hipster. They have a 34inseam, which fits me. I'm 6'4" The same qualities that make these trousers perfect for cycling, tough and yet a tiny bit stretchy, actually them perfect for my line of work as a film-maker. They are exceptional travel pants, bested only by the Rapha jeans. Last, the iconic pink tab, while ubiquitous among cycling circles, still turns heads. I'd love a white option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trousers in Rapha style! Bought them a couple of weeks ago and it´s "Rapha business as usual". The fabric with a little bit of stretch is makes them fit like a glove with just enough room to move as you want to. The zippers in the rather deep front pockets keeps your phone or keys safe. Then theres the pink trimming. It´s nothing wrong with a little bit of showing of but with style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trousers These were bought to replace a previous pair of beige city trousers. I like these because they look like normal trousers. Quite a good heavy weight fabric, which is perfect for the UK, but would want to avoid on hotter days probably. Finish is great. Still some movement in the fabric on the bike. Nice deep pockets secured with a zip - great - I've previously had pens fall out of the pockets when on the bike. Fewer cycling specific features than previous editions - no weird looking patches of different material for the gusset - but the gusset is not reinforced and I suspect it won't last as well as previous editions. Having said that, looks great for work trousers. Also, no silicone waist gripper or reflective logo on right leg - just a pink hi vis seam
