Aerodynamic, lightweight bibs

If you are unsure of which bib shorts to choose, take a look at our new Bib Shorts Guide

Rapha’s first aerodynamic bib shorts offer elite performance without sacrificing comfort. They are ideal in any fast-riding or racing situation, yet durable and comfortable enough to be worn on longer outings. The high-stretch fabric is smooth to the touch, and the hem is ‘raw-cut’, with a direct-silicon gripper - this means the shorts sit entirely flush on your thighs, staying in position to reduce drag and potential chafing. The leg is also cut long on the thigh - approximately 5 cm longer than Pro Team Bib Shorts - while the panels of the shorts feature overlocked stitching for great flexibility and a very snug fit. Support is provided by soft, elastic-tape bib straps, which are wide enough to distribute weight comfortably. The low profile of the straps has been designed to complement the close-fitting Pro Team Aero Jersey perfectly. By using the same chamois pad as the Pro Team Bib Shorts, comfort in the saddle is guaranteed, while black-gloss Rapha logos printed on each leg provide an understated finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Supremely comfortable bibs These are branded as aero, I guess due to the lack of a thick hem. However, they could as easily be marketed as a comfort short as they are by far the most comfortable bibs I have ever worn. The straps lie very flat against your shoulders, no bunching up and the material itself has a little less compression than the regular bibs. I can see these being great for a TT and just as good on a hot ride in the alps. Not cheap, but the extra comfort makes them a better buy then the regular pro team bibs for me - my new no.1 choice of shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ultimate fast bibshort I've ridden these in a broad range of conditions, over distance, and love them; The minimal uppers have loads of stretch with little bulk, giving great comfort and breathability. The low-profile construction and minimal seaming of the legs, whilst (looking and feeling!) fast, are simply extremely comfortable. The fabric is durable with a little compression, yet feels good against the skin. Finally, the same Pro Team/Classic pad means you're good for any distance. Despite the technical design and aero character, above all, they're also a super-comfortable and easy to wear bibshort.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Skin like Bibs The Aero Bib Shorts is a close fitting bib which is light and thin. It feels like its another layer of your skin. Though it do feels comfortable especially on the straps and the chamois padding but the compression of the bib is quite lacking compare to the Pro Team Bib. Those who looking for short distance fast pace cycling or race then this is the bib for you. I would still prefer the Pro Team Bib.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from very poor design The pad is in the wrong place, the leg gripper is very poor and they ride up the leg which means they bunch up in the groin. classic pro team are much better fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Uber comfortable Supper comfortable bib shorts, the shoulder straps are the best yet on a pair of Rapha bibs. I went for the short version and when receiving them assumed I'd received the longs in error, as even the short version are longer than the earlier pro team bibs. I appreciate the additional length increases the "aeroness" but as a personal preference I'd prefer them slightly shorter, might go down a size for my next order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes me feel faster First worn them out and it poured. Quick to dry, no slippage of the cuff. Fabric is wonderfully soft to the touch, not overly compressive. Got this in the regular length and it 1.5" above the knee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shorts in the range Have purchased two pairs now, these shorts are a much better fit for me. I've been wearing them all summer. I like the longer leg than you get with the Climber version. Please consider making Pro Team bib knickers for autumn and spring. Please!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional fitting, classy looking I bought these shorts ready for the summer but have found myself wearing them even on cooler rides already! I've always struggled to find an XS bib short with a decent leg length but these are cut just above the knee which is exactly what I was after. If this is too long (they are much longer than the normal rapha cut ) choose the short option.

I've tried on the regular in the CCMCR store today, I was wondering how much shorter the short option are in comparison?
