High-performance bib shorts for female riders

If you are unsure of which bibs or shorts to choose, take a look at our new Women's Bib Shorts Guide

Technical bib shorts for intense summer training and racing. The shorts use the same fabric as the acclaimed men’s Pro Team Bib Shorts, which have been tried and tested by Team Sky at the highest levels of pro road racing.

NB: The short version of the Souplesse Bib Shorts is 50mm shorter than the regular version.

The fabric is treated with coldblack®, a highly technical dye that reflects the sun’s rays to keep the fabric cool against the skin, and the Souplesse Bib Shorts have an aero fit, for maximum comfort in a ‘race’ position on the bike. The bib section went through many stages of testing and refinement, and the result is a fine and comfortable mesh that contours to accommodate different bust sizes and body types, ensuring a perfect silhouette. The straps use a mesh fabric for breathability, and the waist and legs are tailored for a supportive fit.

"The panelled construction is designed to sit close to the body when riding, and once the bibs are on you'll barely notice you're wearing them. The Lycra itself is treated with 'coldblack', which Rapha describes as a 'technical dye that reflects the sun's rays to keep the fabric cool against the skin'. In action, it works. As a fair-skinned woman, I really feel the heat as soon as the sun puts in an appearance, but the Souplesse bib shorts kept cool, even when in full sunshine."

What is the inseam of this short?  I noticed on the black style yiou offer regular and short? What is the difference between the pink lettering and black?

Asked by: Mso7
Hi, in size medium, these shorts have an inseam length of 26cm for the regular version. If you go up or down a size, add or remove 1cm accordingly. The short version is 5cm shorter for each size. The black and pink are identical shorts other than the black version offering both the short and regular version.

Am in between sizes.. prob around a 24.5-25 in waist. I have an XS classic bib but it's a bit loose on the top, what do you recommend for sizing

Asked by: A123
Hi, the Souplesse Bib Shorts have a closer fit than the Classic Bib Shorts and so we recommend you do still order an x-small.
