Simple, quality bib shorts for everyday riding

Simple, quality bib shorts to complement any ride, the main panels use a dense-knit fabric for support and modesty and laser-cut leg grippers lined with soft silicone for a close, comfortable fit. The bib section uses high-stretch material, machined efficiently for even distribution of stretch and to accommodate longer torsos. Flatlock seams are positioned carefully throughout to hold the shorts in place without chafing. The shorts are available in an entirely black colourway, or with a white bib section to prevent straps showing under a light-coloured jersey.

If you are unsure of which bib shorts to choose, take a look at our new Bib Shorts Guide »

“The Core collection is about optimising innovative fabrics and processes across the entire collection to reduce production hours and wastage. For example, the leg-gripper trim reappears in the jersey back, the material for the zip guard is used again on the sleeve tips, and bindings use rolled edges. This means we can produce Core garments without compromise, leading to a new standard for everyday cycling apparel.”
Alex Valdman, Creative Director

Reviews:

“I told my $500 Assos bibshorts that I had a new favorite and they slammed the door to the Kuku Penthouse in my face. But it’s the truth. The Core bibs are Rapha’s entry-level offering but they surpass that designation in both price and quality.”
9.3/10 - VeloNews

“Rapha's Core bib shorts are an impressive mix of knowhow from premium ranges – giving good quality, comfort and a great fit.”
★★★★½ Ash Quinlan, Road.cc

“The bibshorts are a particular highlight of the range. Flatlock seams join smartly-shaped panels, meaning chafing isn’t an issue and Rapha sensibly hasn’t compromised at the heart of the shorts – the Core bibs are built around the original Classic chamois that remains as comfortable as ever. As a result the Core bibshorts punch well above their weight at this price point. It is a similar story with the jersey – the polyester it uses feels more organic than synthetic, and has been treated with an antibacterial process so still smells reasonable even after repeated use.”
★★★★½ Sam Challis, cyclist.co.uk

“Rapha's most affordable bib shorts to date don't skimp on quality or comfort.”
Jim Clarkson, roadcyclinguk.com

“For weekday training and commuting, Rapha have totally nailed it. Bravo all round.”
Graham Hutson, The Times

Rapha leg and waist sizing info

Waist: natural waist measurement is taken from above the hips, close to the navel.
Inside Leg: from the crotch to the base of the ankle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V comfortable for long ride I was quite skeptical with the thickness of the chaimos pad but after more than 100km ride, it did not disappoint me. V happy with its performance indeed . Contemplating to get a second pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great comfort & value This was my first Rapha purchase and I thought... can they really be that much better? I was so pleased I bought them. I previously wore cheaper Chinese bibs with coolmax chamois. The comfort difference was unbelievable and this is just on Rapha's entry level kit. The extra wide leg grippers mean there is no cutting in to the leg and the chamois pad is firm enough not to compress flat when you get in the saddle. Can't recommend enough, will be buying a second pair for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time Core user I am new to the brand and absolutely thrilled. I am beginning to slowly collect pieces. I have the lightweight pro bib and decided to add the core bib. So interesting, I can experience the differences of both. In my opinion, the core seems to have more compression and the material is a bit more dense This is not a negative, I would choose to wear the core based on weather, leg freshness even the ride description I am obsessed with the line

Rated 5 out of 5 by from like riding on silk purchased these recently after recommendation, and its safe to say I don't know why I've never purchased Rapha products before. I was on a 205 mile endurance ride across the UK and I was not uncomfortable at all, the padding was perfect and the shorts felt extremely nice considering I was in the saddle for 18 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Focus on the right size Great shorts. I ordered my normal size but when they arrived they were too small and the material isn't as elasticated as some other brands. The next size up did the trick and now I'm really enjoying the comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid bibs in basic black After 350+ miles I am very pleased with the Core Bib Short. Wider bib straps are a plus, easier on and more comfortable. Leg grip is wonderful, stays in place without biting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfy I got these for my earlier this month so I could wear them on a long ride in the Peak District. I have had a few very good brands of short before and these are easily the best ones I've had. No chaffs or rubs and still felt fresh at the end of 5 hours in the sun.. would definitely get some more and would definitely recommend..

Regarding sizing, as these will be my first Rapha bibs, I seem to end upp in between sizes M and L. I have a 33 waist and 32 inseam. Should I go for size M? All my other bibs, from other brands, are M.

Asked by: Rapha Core
If you are in between sizes you could try the large size in this garment. If the size does not meet with your specification then you would be able to return these to us under our 90 day returns policy.

Would you recommend this for a 400km ride? 

Asked by: Littlecyclist14
The Core Bib shorts do benefit from the same pad as our well known Classic Bib Shorts but I suggest for a longer ride to either go with the Classic or the Brevet.

Hi, I have several pairs of the pro bibs in large tall (with the extra 10 mm). How does the length of the core short compare? I hover around 82k and am 193cm tall.

Asked by: Marcelo Cramerotti
The length of the shorts are the same, The difference is in materials used and the close fit of the Pro Team against the other ranges.
