Robust and streamlined bib shorts for cold training and race conditions. With longer legs than summer shorts and brushed-backs, they insulate but also give enough range of movement for high-tempo riding.

Insulated bib shorts for cold conditions

Created for early season or cold conditions, fleece-backed shorts have long been a staple of racers on the continent racing and training in the late/early season. Worn with leg or knee warmers, they are incredibly versatile giving enough range of movement and protection from the cold.

Made from a soft but supportive Lycra with an insulating Thermoroubaix fleece inner, the shorts are longer in the leg than regular summer-season bibs with a dense mesh back for additional warmth and breathability.


"For the money, this is a solid short, and one that can take a pounding both on the road and in the washing machine."
Matthew Beaudin, Velonews »

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right Worn this morning for the first time on my commute to work - just on the right side of cool to get some benefit. Chamois is very comfortable, slightly thicker than that on my regular pro-team shorts, not too sure if it's an upgrade, but it's very welcome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit, extremely comfortable. This is the first Rapha product that I have ever tried. I am very tall (6'3") and I have never found a pair of thermal tights with long enough legs. However thermal bib shorts together with leg warmers work great. Only a few companies make high end thermal bib shorts so I thought I would give Rapha a try. I have had the shorts for about a month now and so far I think they are great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit of kit! The pro team thermal bib shorts are a good option for mild winter riding, warm, comfortable, nice fit. (I'm 5ft 6, 83kilo) The pro team range seems to work well for me, size medium fits perfectly. They feel a little bit thinner than the pro team winter tights (with pad) with less water resistance, that's not a bad thing at all...they are as described...Thermal not Winter. Used with the Rapha leg warmers and a Rapha Brevet wind blocker Jersey the temperature range is broad, when it gets colder just add the Rapha Merino long sleeve base layer. Job done!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from "Cool" Bibs great for short early winter riding I bought these a month ago. The fit is fantastic - slight compression on my slim legs and perfect length. I would say they fit a little more snug than their summer equivalents, and for me thats a win. The material is great and with some leg warmers they are great for winter rides from around 4-12 degrees. I find Rapha chamois a bit "hit and miss", sometimes comfy sometimes not. On this occasion the chamois is not so great, and irritates. It seems to be slightly different design to the usual Pro standard, hence 4stars not 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still great My 3rd or 4th pair now, much softer and more comfortable than the first generation a few years back, plenty more stretch in them, fit is great now. Longer in the leg makes them look better. Rapha need to do some pro team leg warmers to match.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit! I have been a Castelli fan for years and have just tried these and the Brevet shorts. I'm a convert! I rode 120 miles in these last Sunday and they were perfect. The padding is great and the fit spot on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic for cold and wet weather riding. I purchased these Bib Shorts as I neede to make sure I would be warm enough when trying to complete the Rapha Festive 500. These Bib shorts are the real deal for cold weather cycling.

What is the difference between these and the regular thermal bib shorts. Which are warmer?

Asked by: Basilleroux
Hi, the difference between these and the Classic Thermal Bib Shorts is the fit. The Pro Team Thermal Bib Shorts have a close, race ready fit in line with the Pro Team range whilst the Classic version have a more relaxed fit. Both are equally warm.

What length (inseam) are these shorts, and how do you measure this? I have a pair of large core shorts which are stated as 24cm but are closer to 29cm when I measure from the centre of the chamois to the bottom of the cuff.

Asked by: BenAngelo
Hi, these shorts are 4cm longer than the Core Bib Shorts in each size.
