Women's Classic Shorts

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

Test ride any of Rapha’s Classic products to destruction and if you are not 100% satisfied within 30-days you can return them for a full refund.

NB: The short version of the Rapha Women's Shorts is 80mm shorter than the regular version.

Rapha Women’s Shorts combine the comfort and performance of the women's shorts without the inconvenience of bibs. They have a high waistband at the back featuring a soft gripper tape for a snug and secure fit. The front panel is doubled over rather than stitched to prevent digging in when riding and the chamois pad from specialist manufacturer Cytech is designed specifically for female riders.

They are made from a lightweight and durable stretch fabric and have a panel construction. The shorts are cut long in the leg for a more flattering shape. The seams of the shorts have been positioned to prevent chafing and inside are finished with soft, flatock stitching. Style elements include contrast cream binding on the back of the shorts, Rapha logos on each leg and reflective tabs to improve visibility.

"Every woman spends her life searching for the perfect pair of jeans, ones that are comfortable, look great, aren’t too fashionable but just stylish enough, are versatile, and even forgiving when she puts on a pound or two. Most never find those jeans. Somehow, maestros of cycle clothing Rapha have managed to address the female cyclist’s equivalent quest, the search for the perfect cycling shorts. I am going to show my hand right from the word go, here, I cannot recommend these shorts highly enough!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best cycling shorts ever I have bought these cycling shorts recently and have worn them almost on every ride. They are the most comfortable pair of cycling shorts I have. I know they are expensive but they are worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SOOO comfy! These shorts are so comfortable its like you are not wearing anything! I mean really. Soft, not restrictive, and just lovely. Had to think hard about spending this amount of money on a pair of shorts, but all other cheaper products have gone out! I won't wear anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best cycling shorts EVER! Upon receiving my Women's Classic Cycling Shorts, I have worn them for nine consecutive rides of 3-4 hours each and they are incredibly comfortable. They are now my "go to" shorts. I have other shorts but find these exceptionally well designed and head and shoulders above all other brands. The are well worth the cost.

Do the core or classic shorts have the wide laser cut finish to the legs, to help prevent sausage legs or is it just the bin shorts that have this feature. I just find the bibs difficult for comfort breaks.

Asked by: Cate L
Hi, these shorts are cut long in the leg for a more flattering shape but they do not have the wide laser cut finish.

What is the length of the inseam on the long version?

Asked by: HarpsonMaui
The length on the long pair of Classic Shorts is approximately 25cm for XXS and this goes up by 0.5cm each size, so the next size would be 25.5cm for XS, 26cm for S etc.

Did the "short" length on the new version become longer than the the "short" length on the older version? I recently purchased a "short" in the new color Dark Navy as well as the "short" in the older color Gray", the Gray color is shorter.

Asked by: Bikecloset
The Shorts should not be change in size length between the older and newer version.

I just bought the small "short" classic shorts in black.  Compared to the same item purchased 2 yrs ago, the "new" version is ~2cm longer leg length & the Rapha writing is in white, rather than black. Is the old style available? I preferred the old style.

Asked by: ClareH

The description states the shorter version are 80mm less than the regular however there is no details on the length of the regular short to know how much shorter the 'shorter' version would be.

Asked by: Cyclinggeek

I need to order new shorts. The pair I have says size 8. Is that an XS or Small?
