Award winning bib shorts with an improved chamois pad

A comfortable pair of cycling shorts is the most important clothing purchase any rider can make. Get them right and you can spend hours in the saddle without even noticing them. Get them wrong and every kilometre will feel like a hundred.

The Classic Bib Shorts II feature a new pad with body-contoured padding and a soft chamois finish to provide all day comfort. Three pad sizes split across the Classic Bib range ensure the perfect fit from XS to XXL.

The shorts are made from a soft, matt-finish Lycra with great stretch, while the bibs are made from a luxury mesh material, with a large cutaway section in the back to prevent overheating. For extra comfort in the saddle, Rapha's bib shorts have flatlock stitching throughout to prevent chafing, and a new, more efficient leg gripper that provides better grip at a reduced weight. The shorts also have a small key pocket, Rapha logos on the legs, and are cut low at the front for calls of nature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quite possibly the best ever Bib Shorts I have two pairs of classic II bibs, great construction and comfortable lyca. The pad provides superb support for all day riding. I am 187cm and 89kg, the large size fit well though occasionally I think the thigh grippers are a tad too tight, better than being sloppy though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable Probably the most comfortable pair of bib shorts I've ever owned. Haven't had them too long yet but they seem to be holding up very well after washing in the laundry machine. Rapha amazes me with their shipping every time I place an order. The package arrives in 2 days, that is unheard of when ordering overseas from Toronto. Excellent

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfy First pair of these and won't be my last, bought in a medium size, and they fit very well, front panel is low enough and flexible enough to allow easy "comfort breaks" super happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bibs On the Market By far the best bibs I have ever owned. I originally tried them out on a couple 60-70 mile rides and couldn't believe how comfortable they felt at the end of the ride. I have tried many other brands and none even come close to the comfort of these. I recently went out for a ride of around 10 hours, most of it gravel, and the performance and comfort these bibs provided were simply amazing. The materials feel so luxurious and the legs and straps stay in place all ride. I am 6'1" and 160 lbs and wear a size medium which fits perfectly. I would prefer to venture out on every ride wearing these. Thanks Rapha!

With the Purple bib shorts, is the black contrast a pure black or is it a purpley shade of black? also, the new chamois size is now dependant on short size (great) so in theory, is the medium on the Classic 2's the same as the medium on the Classic 1's?

Asked by: BobbyH
The Classic Bib Shorts II are a pure, Classic Black with Purple trim. The Chamois have been resized to optimise fit in each size. Due to this, the Chamois is slightly different in this version than previous.

The Small Classic II feels too large. Sorry I didn't return them before riding them. Would I be better off in a XS Classic II or S Pro Team? Which has a best pad for 100+ mile rides? I normally wear S Assos and M Sportful Super Total Comfort.

Asked by: richardm
You could try the XS Classic II. The Chamois pad in the Classics collection is more suitable for distance rides as the Pro Team collection has a thinner pad and is designed as a race garment. The Classics range has a Classics Guarantee 30 day returns policy, even in cases when the garment has been worn. For more information on the Classics Guarantee please see our website.

I am considering the classic and the lightweight as I live in Florida. Is the classic that much heavier in fabric that I would notice vs the lightweight? Also are the pads the same?

Asked by: Rossi2020
Hi, in very hot summer days you would notice the difference wearing the Lightweight as they are thinner in material and also have a thinner and a perforated chamois to enhance moisture transfer and help riders feeling cooler in the heat.

Hi, I have a 33 inch waist and 31 inch inside leg. Would a large or medium be a better option for size?

Asked by: SteveWinSC
Hi, as our Classic Bib Shirts have a more generous fit, I suggest you try the Medium. Should you need to exchange, we have a 90 days return period.

I have just received the classic bib shorts 11 you stated they have a new chamois! The ones I've received are identical to my Raphael core bib-shorts chamois please explain. I cannot see what the extra $105 Aus has given except bib& leg grip change.

Asked by: copy
Hi, our new Classic Bib Shorts do indeed have a new updated pad and the Core Bib Shorts benefit of having the same chamois pad used in all our Classic bib shorts. The rest of the construction and material of both shorts are different as is the fit.

is there much difference in the circumference of the bottom of the leg between a medium and large? only I'm 5ft 8 but got quite large thighs

Asked by: jjaayyyy
Hi, going up a size in any garment will affect the overall sizing including circumference. Though we do not suggest buying a large because of the leg if it means it will be big all over elsewhere. The Classic Bib Shorts are already our most generous in size/fit.

Is the dark grey essentially or close to black or is it evidently grey?

Asked by: DtweLve
This is a dark grey and can be referred to as an Anthracite Grey.
