Cycling over-shorts ideal for commuting

Rapha’s Touring Shorts are a road riding interpretation of the cycling overshorts known to mountain bikers as “baggies”. They are made from a lightweight, breathable fabric and are versatile enough for both urban commutes and longer rides.

Designed to be worn over bib shorts, Touring Shorts have a slim, contemporary cut to ensure they won’t flap in the wind while on the bike. Performance features include a non-slip panel in the waistband to hold the shorts in position when riding and satin tapes inside the hems to stop them catching on undershorts.

Other details include a special gusset to prevent chafing and easy-to-use waist adjusters. A zipped pocket at the front of the shorts is cut shallow to prevent objects digging into the leg when cycling and the shorts have an additional rear pocket for carrying valuables. Reflective piping on the back of the legs helps make the rider more visible when riding in poor light.

Reviews:

"If you don’t want the Lycra budgie-smuggling look or equally unflattering “baggies”, Rapha’s classically tailored touring shorts tick all the right boxes."

‟These slim-fitting shorts have tech DNA, including zip pockets all around for security and a stretch nylon that moves as you pedal. Wear them alone for short missions or over your bibs for all-day affairs.”

Quickie re sizing; I usually wear S in Lycra shorts, but in casual wear jeans for example I'm between 30 and 31" (I get 31 where possible) and I wear them snug not baggy. Recommendations for size for these? 30 or 32... Thanks!

Asked by: theMUSETTE
Hi, it is always hard to advise on sizing as we all differ slightly. The Touring short does have a slim, tailored cut and we would advise trying the size 32. We do have a free 90 day return period should you find they do not fit.
