Award winning bib shorts with an improved chamois pad

A comfortable pair of cycling shorts is the most important clothing purchase any rider can make. Get them right and you can spend hours in the saddle without even noticing them. Get them wrong and every kilometre will feel like a hundred.

The Classic Bib Shorts II feature a new pad with body-contoured padding and a soft chamois finish to provide all day comfort. Three pad sizes split across the Classic Bib range ensure the perfect fit from XS to XXL.

The shorts are made from a soft, matt-finish Lycra with great stretch, while the bibs are made from a luxury mesh material, with a large cutaway section in the back to prevent overheating. For extra comfort in the saddle, Rapha's bib shorts have flatlock stitching throughout to prevent chafing, and a new, more efficient leg gripper that provides better grip at a reduced weight. The shorts also have a small key pocket, Rapha logos on the legs, and are cut low at the front for calls of nature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still a classic item 2nd pair I have owned. New version still has the same great materials and fit and the new pad feels great. Excellent pair of bibs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just want to feel them all day So soft and subtle and... ah, I'm spoilt now. No other bibs cut the mustard so to speak. I'm a Rapha convert, and won't have it any other way... perfect fit, perfect cut, beautiful materials, excellent chamois.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from impressive! I bought these few weeks ago. Rode few hundred Kms with them. No doubt in my mind, they are among if not the most comfortable bibs I ever had. They r not cheap, but very soft and comfortable. And I really appreciate their classic style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great basic bibs While I've been riding for years I had never tried bibs and now I don't wear any other type of bike shorts. I don't have a lot of experience with bibs but these are great. I'm 6' 170# and originally order medium but I returned those because grippers were too snug. Large while a bit roomy up top were good at the knee. Terrific shorts might try the pro team next

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure Magic in a Bid The Rapha Classic Bid Shorts II is the ultimate garment in cycling comfort, quality and luxury. As a daily bid, this investment is one of the best that I've ever made. For long rides or short spins on the turbo trainer, I panic when I can not locate this bid.

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.

I am considering the classic and the lightweight as I live in Florida. Is the classic that much heavier in fabric that I would notice vs the lightweight? Also are the pads the same?

Asked by: Rossi2020
Hi, in very hot summer days you would notice the difference wearing the Lightweight as they are thinner in material and also have a thinner and a perforated chamois to enhance moisture transfer and help riders feeling cooler in the heat.

Hi, I have a 33 inch waist and 31 inch inside leg. Would a large or medium be a better option for size?

Asked by: SteveWinSC
Hi, as our Classic Bib Shirts have a more generous fit, I suggest you try the Medium. Should you need to exchange, we have a 90 days return period.

I have just received the classic bib shorts 11 you stated they have a new chamois! The ones I've received are identical to my Raphael core bib-shorts chamois please explain. I cannot see what the extra $105 Aus has given except bib& leg grip change.

Asked by: copy
Hi, our new Classic Bib Shorts do indeed have a new updated pad and the Core Bib Shorts benefit of having the same chamois pad used in all our Classic bib shorts. The rest of the construction and material of both shorts are different as is the fit.

is there much difference in the circumference of the bottom of the leg between a medium and large? only I'm 5ft 8 but got quite large thighs

Asked by: jjaayyyy
Hi, going up a size in any garment will affect the overall sizing including circumference. Though we do not suggest buying a large because of the leg if it means it will be big all over elsewhere. The Classic Bib Shorts are already our most generous in size/fit.
