Technical fabric in a modern cut

If you are unsure of which style or cut of trouser to choose, take a look at our new City Legwear Fit Guide

The Rapha Loopback Trousers are made from a lightweight and durable nylon Pertex® fabric that has great stretch for comfort when riding. Created for active days in changeable conditions, the back of the fabric features a microscopic ‘loop’ construction, which increases the surface area and improves moisture transfer from the skin. The outside of the fabric is treated with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, designed to keep you dry should you get caught out by the elements. The trousers have a modern cut, which tapers sharply below the knee. Hi-vis pink piping on the inside leg provides on-bike visibility when the trousers are rolled up. The trousers also feature a zipped rear pocket and an elasticated waistband with belt loops.

The cut of these Rapha City trousers is more generous than in previous seasons. For the perfect fit we recommend downsizing by one size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slim, Modern Commuter Trouser Fantastic pant at a really great price point. The fit is super slim below the knees and has enough room around the thighs to that it doesn't look like you are wearing yoga pants! Really nice trim look, while I have only ridden in light rain once, they did a good job beading the water and keeping me warm. The material does have a slight "technical" look to it - so likely not something that you could commute in then transition into a professional environment (but that is subjective). The only negative comment I have is the elasticized waist band. It works and allows the trouser to be pretty flexible for people hovering between sizes; but if you tuck a shirt into the waistband - it looks like you are wearing joggers...even with a belt - you can still see the elastic band bunching - which means you are really restricted to sweaters and un-tucked shirts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loopback trousers Excellent! An instant classic. I've worn it in the rain only once but the results are fantastic. The rain water just runs off! A great stretchy fabric that does not restrict movement... Thank you Rapha.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best commuter pants I've ever purchased. Cons: the color (black, in my case) isn't rich or deep. Looks washed out, like it has gone through the machine many, many times. Pros: everything else. A fantastic pair of pants, er, trousers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional, well-made and stylish. I haven't worn these when cycling yet but the stretch and water repellency of the fabric suggests that they will be up to the job. I agree with the reviewer who said that the elasticated waist may not go so well with a tucked-in shirt. I have a circa 30 to 32" waist with 30" inside leg and the 30 Small is a good fit. They make a good pair of travel trousers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent casual attire Comfortable and stylish pants. If your waist size is between two numbers, try the smaller size since the fabric has enough elasticity and give.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb comfort I wasn't sure about the material, I have cotton ones too which are thick and ideal for colder days, but these are really excellent trousers for me. I have a short 30 minute pedal to work and want to look relatively smart during the day, then onto the bike home. These do the job and they fit nicely with stretch and movement. Water and dust bounce off and inside the trouser pockets is a lush soft warm material which is just... well... perfect. The little flashes of pink when I roll up the legs are reflective and overall I'm never out of the things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great-fitting trousers! I bought these trousers in blue a few weeks ago and have been wearing them almost non-stop for my daily commute. Very water-resistant, good fit and comfortable - what's not to like? My only criticism is the limited range of colours; I would have bought a second pair if they were available in another colour other than black (why not grey, olive or khaki)?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from innovative and excellent I do not normally write review, but I like these so much. I bought a pair of Loopback a couple weeks ago and have not stopped wearing them since. They are insanely comfortable. They can pass as casual trousers or be worn with a jacket at work for a business casual look. Of course they comply nicely with motion of city riding. The elastic waist gives a perfect fit, yet it is subtle in appearance allowing these to look like a fashionable trouser. My only complaint: they are sold out, I want to buy another pair.

Can the trouser legs be rolled up to just below the knees?  Is there enough slack in the cut and material to allow this??

Im a size 30 in Randonee Shorts and Rapha Jeans, should I size down? and also, what is the point of variable lenght, is it for a more elegant look?
