Take flight in the heat

The Flyweight Bib Shorts are designed for riding in hot and humid conditions. The shorts are made of an extremely lightweight, soft four-way stretch fabric - the lightest we’ve used in our bib shorts - that has been treated with coldblack® which reduces the build-up of heat. The upper section has a breathable and lightweight construction, with a thin mesh that stretches to fit over your shoulders. The chamois pad is the same perforated one used in the Pro Team Lightweight Bib Shorts. Featuring coloured uppers to pair with the Flyweight Jerseys, allowing you to look - and stay - cool as you take flight in the heat. The bibs are available in two lengths, regular and short, with a difference between leg lengths of approximately 1 inch. The short option is for shorter riders or those who prefer a higher hem on the thigh.

FEATURES

  • Available in two leg lengths - regular and short, with approximately 1 inch variation in length
  • Lightweight, soft four-way stretch fabric
  • Treated with coldblack to reduce absorption of sunlight and keep your legs cool
  • Rapha logo printed on left leg

  • Bonded elastic binding for a smooth finish
  • Lightweight silicone dot gripper to hold the shorts in place
  • Perforated, quick drying chamois pad (same as Pro Team Lightweight Bib Shorts)

FABRIC

  • 80% polyester
  • 20% elastane

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable I bought the shorts and flyweight top as a bundle. An excellent combo in looks and comfort. The shorts have an excellent pad and an excellent fit. Hot weather was a joy to ride in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just perfect East coast summers are 90F w/90% humidity. I see bare chested (guys) hammering what they can in these conditions. With a black helmet you roast. These work and go the distance 50-100mi/ day. Bought a second pair as cant wear these 2 days in a row under those conditions. Got the shorter version am 165lbs, 6' large worked. Hate too much graphics but .....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort, style and durability. This year rode Lejog wearing these shorts, apart from one rain day and have to say that I had no problems with discomfort. The pad has to be the best and most comfortable on the market and I have tried them all. Just don't put them in the dryer, even by accident.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flyweight Bib Shorts pretty comfy These are good bibs. Pros: - Heat block fabric seems to totally make a difference. Riding in 100º days they felt cooler than regular bibs - Chamois is fluffy and nice Cons: -The edges on the bib top are a little abrasive on the skin. -The "short" option of the bibs are short. I wish there was a length reference on the description.

I purchased NAVY flyweight bib shorts, but they are almost black. Shirts is navy but not the shorts. Are all your nave shorts more black rather than navy?

Asked by: Davidguae
We use a variety of Navy shades depending on which collection the item is part of. The Flyweight Navy is a different shade to the Classic II and Brevet

I am a 6'3 rider and wondering if these would fit my tall frame. I have purchased the classic bib and had to return because the seam in the middle was to tight on my nads. I prefer the bib wearing a bib vs. the short so any feedback would be great! Thanks

Asked by: Tallguy
The Bib shorts should meet your requirements. Please do consult the sizing guide. The Bibs are designed to be worn when riding a bike, so standing tall they may feel slightly tight. We do have a 90 day returns policy should these garments not meet with your specifications.

I'm 5'9 with a 33inch waist and 30 inch inseam. Should I go with a large bib in short length?

Asked by: Jase700
We would recommend a Medium in standard length short rather than up-sizing based on your waist size.

Hi, my waist is 29 inch and im 5'6" with 28" inseam. May i know which suits me best, short or regular? Shall i go for xs regular or s short?

Asked by: Scha
You could try the Small version of these garment based upon these dimensions and the choice of regular or short is entirely dependent on your personal preferences. The difference between the regular and small are 3cm.

Hi, Can you please please tell the main colour of the bib shorts for the dark blue green in this range, (i.e is the main area black etc). Thank you.

Asked by: TheChris_G
Hi, the Dark Blue Green on these shorts corresponds to the breathable fabric and a thin mesh upper section and the logo on the side of the legs.

Hi, I am looking to purchase some bib shorts and as I have a 33 in waist (and am 6'1") I'm in-between sizes. I want to know what the best size would be for the fly weight bibs and the classic bib short II. Thanks,

Asked by: jaymac
Hi, as you say are in between sizes I suggest a Medium on the Classic Bib Shorts II and a Large on the Flyweight Bib Shorts. Should you need to exchange, we have a 90 days return period.

I understood that these bibs a more relaxed fit compared to Pro Team Range. So, to have the same fit should I downsize from medium to small?

Asked by: Labomba5
You should consult the sizing guide on the website and this does take into account the different style of garments.
