Technical city cycling shorts for hot and humid conditions

These stylish, slim-fitting shorts are made from a lightweight, breathable fabric and are designed for city riding in hot and humid conditions. The fabric is quick drying, has excellent stretch and is also crease resistant, making the shorts ideal for travelling.

The shorts feature crisp tailoring, including a smart, flat front and fly closure, with a high-cut back to ensure a great fit when riding. In addition to two front pockets, the back of the shorts feature one zipped pocket and one button-down pocket. Visibility details include a fold away hi-vis tab and hi-vis trim inside the legs which can be hidden away when not riding. Offset inseams guarantee comfort.

The cut of these Rapha City trousers is more generous than in previous seasons. For the perfect fit we recommend downsizing by one size.


‟Light in weight and color, the slim-fitting Rapha Randonnee Shorts scream summertime city riding. Quick-drying, breathable fabric keeps you cool on sticky days, and an offset seam and high-cut back let you ride in comfort - and keep your back covered.”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improvement in size/fit over previous version I have a pair of the previous generation of these shorts and, as others found, they came up small when compared to Rapha bibs of the 'same size'. I'm pleased to say that this new version now equates to the bib sizing. Get whichever size you would in your bibs and their is enough room for brevet bins to fit under yet not so baggy they cant be worn casually. The pockets are of a decent size and the material is deceptively stretchy so they are great on and off the bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and flexibility Really nice pair of shorts the fabric has a nice amount of sketch with gives great range of motion and mobility. The small details make the shorts look really smart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great on an off the bike. Bought this for riding and hiking as well as casual wear. Really great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look good! Comfortable! Moves well on the bike as there is plenty of give in the material. I possibly could have got away with a 32' rather than a 34'. They look better if slightly closer fitting. Tis is the second pair I bought. The previous pair are 34', yet they are a closer fit. These possibly run slightly large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, plenty of pockets, sizing is larger... A note on sizing: I also own a pair of the 'touring' shorts which I think are discontinued. They are marked as the same waist-size as these shorts, bu the touring shorts are much more snug, so bear in mind these shorts are generously sized compared to some previous Rapha shorts. They are a little too big for me so I have to wear them with a belt - should have gone a size down but I've started wearing them now.... There're two zipped slash pockets on the sides for your hands, and two rear pockets - one with button closure and one with a zip. This is more than enough, and handy for keys, cards etc. As usual, finishing and stitching is great, quality of product is really noticeable. The material is hard-wearing and has good stretch, so is very comfy on the bike. The old touring shorts had a silk strip on the inside-front of the bottom hem, which was a nice feature that stopped the shorts catching on any bibshorts you were wearing underneath, and these shorts don't have that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shorts. Period. I've worn them almost a week in hot and humid weather. Can't beat them. Comfortable. A good amount of stretch and then look good. I've been looking for a good breathable short for a long time. Glad I have these a whirl. Definitely order one side smaller than usual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shorts I bought these shorts based on the reviews of others. I was not disappointed. They are both functional and stylish in a minimalistic way. The quality,fit and finish are excellent. The stretch is nice when on the bike as are the zipped side pockets. I'll probably buy the other colours.

Do these shorts ever stretch out? As advised, I sized down to a 28 (typically wear 30) and only one button of the waist will even close (very uncomfortably). I'm hesitant to exchange for a 30 because the Cotton shorts in that size literally fall off.

Asked by: MMBB
Hi, these shorts do not stretch out. The previous season City shorts and trousers had a very close fit. We altered the sizing of these items for the new season to relax the fit and this accounts for your odd sizing dilemma whilst we phase out the previous season fit. Please feel free to email us and we can help with this.

The product details for the other randonee shorts suggest downsizing. Do these run large as well? I usually roll with a 30-32 inch waist, even in rapha products. 

Asked by: danyof
Hi, if you usually wear a 30/32in waist, we would recommend you choose the 30in waist in these shorts.

I have quite large thighs and on any pair of regular shorts and pants I get a size 36 in order to accommodate them even though my waist measures out at 34. Should I downsize to 34 or should I keep it at 36?

Asked by: migcyc
Hi, these shorts do have quite a lot of stretch. They can accommodate a variety of leg sizes and were designed with cyclists of different leg sizes in mind. We would recommend you try a 34in waist. We do have a free 90 day returns policy if needed.
