Classic design, unbeatable comfort

Cycling shorts are the most important clothing purchase any rider can make. Get them right and every kilometre that passes beneath your tyres will be a pleasure; get them wrong, and every kilometre will be an ordeal.

Building on our best-selling Classic Bib Shorts, version II features an updated, body-contoured pad with three sizes spread across the range to ensure perfect fit from XS to XXL.

The shorts are made from a soft Lycra to allow exceptional freedom of movement, while the bib straps are constructed from a luxury mesh material, with a large cutaway section in the back to prevent overheating. Flatlock stitching ensures all seams lie completely flat to deter chafing, and a new leg gripper provides better grip at a reduced weight.

“There's a reason for calling things "classic' and these are it. These are a go-to pair of bibs.”
The Riddla, Chicago

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than before Great upgrade to a super solid foundation. Love the changes in the material and some of the stitching. Great elastic on the legs. Could do without the Rapha cursive, but black on black solves that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bibs I do long rides. These bibs are extremely comfortable and fit great. I have two pairs. These bibs are highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfortable I have 3 pairs of Rapha lightweight shorts & a pair of the winter shorts. All are extremely comfortable compared to other brands I have used. However this is the 1st time for me to use Classic Bib Shorts 2. Immediately I can feel the difference. The workmanship & the detailing are up to Rapha's usual high standards but the comfort is a revelation

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bib and fits true to size These bibs are made of the most supple material I've ever worn. I found them run true to size. I've previously worn the top end Pearl Izumi PRO bibs in Medium and these Rapha bibs don't feel quite the compression and have a bit more room. I'm 5'11" and 165 LBS. These bibs are perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Benchmark quality It's in the title... classic... Need I say more. This is the bib that will forever be the bib that you compare all others against. Which is why I now only ride Rapha, especially on those long days!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shorts I've owned to date. After wearing lots if different shorts these past few years, Castelli etc I read some reviews on Rapha Classic 2 shorts, they cost a bit more than I'd have liked to pay but after they arrived and I'd tried them I'm so glad I bought them. Rapha gear gets a good name for a reason. The fit is perfect, 81kgs Large. They feel great quality the padding is brilliant, this is the 1st review I've written without anything negative at all. They really do live up to the name.

Hi, I am interested in buying the classic bib shorts II, for my long distance rides 80-100 mile, would you recommend these for that purpose, my waist is 35 inch and my inside leg 30 inch, what size should I go for?

Asked by: Kesgee
We would recommend the XL Bib Shorts based on you dimensions.

I'm a size 32 waist but a 34 inseam. Should I buy the M or the L classic II bib short? 

Asked by: sizequestion
We would recommend that you defer to your waist size as the large Bib Short would not fit correctly around your hips and excess material chafe

hi, my waist is 36.5" and had the flyweight bibs. its slightly loose in the fit for size XL. Should I go with the L range for the Classic bibs 2. Thanks

Asked by: Lim B
Try the Large Classic II Bibs as the XL Flyweight share the same fit and if you find them too small, you can return for an exchange within 30-days of riding using our Classics Guarantee

Hi Rapha, I've bought a pair of classic bibs 2 in a size small. They fit pretty perfectly apart from the leg grippers are a bit tight around my thighs. Are the leg grippers likely to relax/stretch a bit to my leg size as I wear them?

Asked by: Matt A
The Lycra will stretch and adapt to your legs the more you wear them

With the Purple bib shorts, is the black contrast a pure black or is it a purpley shade of black? also, the new chamois size is now dependant on short size (great) so in theory, is the medium on the Classic 2's the same as the medium on the Classic 1's?

Asked by: BobbyH
The Classic Bib Shorts II are a pure, Classic Black with Purple trim. The Chamois have been resized to optimise fit in each size. Due to this, the Chamois is slightly different in this version than previous.

The Small Classic II feels too large. Sorry I didn't return them before riding them. Would I be better off in a XS Classic II or S Pro Team? Which has a best pad for 100+ mile rides? I normally wear S Assos and M Sportful Super Total Comfort.

Asked by: richardm
You could try the XS Classic II. The Chamois pad in the Classics collection is more suitable for distance rides as the Pro Team collection has a thinner pad and is designed as a race garment. The Classics range has a Classics Guarantee 30 day returns policy, even in cases when the garment has been worn. For more information on the Classics Guarantee please see our website.
