Lightweight and breathable summer bib shorts

With a newly improved gripper and new colour ways, these shorts are designed for hot summer conditions. They use a soft, stretch fabric for breathability, which is also lighter than other Rapha Bib Shorts. The fabric also incorporates sun-block treatment. There is a lighter mesh on the bib section and a larger cutaway at the back. The chamois pad was developed exclusively for Rapha and is lightweight and perforated. The bibs are stitched for comfort and durability.
