Bib shorts that keep you cool when others are losing theirs

When the temperature soars, these are the bib shorts to reach for. Created for the hardest, hottest and most demanding conditions, the Rapha Lightweight Bib Shorts are more comfortable in the peak summer heat. The soft, stretch fabric is more breathable and a lighter weight than other Rapha Bib Shorts, and it also incorporates a sunblock treatment. Elsewhere, there is a lighter mesh on the bib and a larger cutaway at the back, and the exclusively developed chamois pad is lightweight and perforated.

For the 2015 season the lightweight shorts are available in two leg lengths –regular and short, cut 3cm shorter specifically for the hottest conditions – and feature an improved gripper and new colourways.
