Performance bib shorts designed for elite-level racing
Offering the same fabric, fit and construction as Rapha’s Team Sky Pro Bib Shorts, the latest Pro Team Bib Shorts have been designed in collaboration with leading riders.
Featuring pared-back styling and striking contrast details, they are made from a Lycra-based fabric which is both supportive and durable. The fabric is treated with coldblack®, a highly-technical dye that reflects the sun’s rays to keep the fabric cool against the skin. In hot conditions, this means the body needn’t expend unnecessary energy to keep cool, and can use it instead to improve riding performance. All Rapha’s pro-grade bib shorts use the same award-winning Cytech pad.
The Pro Team Bib Shorts with white decals are available in both regular and long (30mm extra leg length), tailored specifically for taller riders.

"So, are these things worth $250? My sense is that they will last longer than the Eurozone, that you’ll never get home from a ride wondering how you missed putting chamois cream on that one blessed spot, that you’ll never wear these with any jersey you own and look like a dork, that you’ll never regret your purchase."

"These bibs had one of the thickest chamois in our test, as well as the slimmest-fitting legs. We loved the tight, compressive-feeling material, and broad thigh bands, which didn’t cause sausage-leg effect despite their high level of tightness. The thick chamois was present under us while riding, making these great for cyclists who crave ever-present padding. The chamois is also well-positioned and shaped for riding in the drops, or on the bar tops. Overall, we found the bibs’ finish to be top-notch, including the stitching on the edge of the chamois, which we never felt while riding. The straps are comfortable and well ventilated, too."
