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.

Reviews:

‟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.”

Inside Leg: from the crotch to the base of the ankle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shorts I own Most of the shorts I own are heavy cotton and aren't comfortable in Sydney humidity. These are lightweight, well shaped, and stretch. So not only have these become the go to shorts for commuting around, they are also my go to shorts for wearing up to the shops. So good I bought a second pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are Awesome! I bought these a couple weeks ago and haven't taken them off. They're great for riding around town or hanging out. Fit great, lightweight, and look fantastic. Really happy with this purchase. Liked them so much I just ordered another pair in a different color. Highly recommend! Only negative thing I can say it that they were a little longer than I wanted. But I'm also short and stocky, so I wear a larger size than most my height. But by folding the bottom it's fixed, and the colored highlight on the inside is a nice touch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spot on. I sized down from the chart, as recommended, and the fit is perfect. Too many bike shorts are tight in the hips/thighs and if you get the size right there the waist is massive: No need to scrunch these up with a belt. Look sharp, well made, easy to pedal in. Hope they last an upcoming 5000k trip! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from super comfortable I haven't had the chance to wear this for trail riding yet but walked around town with this on. It's stretchy material is super comfortable. And the breathable material really helped reducing sweating while I was walking outside on a hot 30℃ noon. Great shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great allrounders! Bought these for keen cycling boyfriend - he loves them ! They are robust, stylish, flexible. You can wear them as smart casual, over cycling shorts/bibs, or on their own to cycle in - if you aren't going too far !

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.

I'm also wondering what the inseam on these shorts measures.

Asked by: Arne
Hi, the Randonnée Shorts have an inseam of 31.5cm in all sizes.
Answered by: Rapha_AW
Date published: 2016-07-18

What is the inseam length on these shorts? Same length as the Touring Short? Would I size them similar to the Touring Short?

Asked by: RD403
Hi, the shorts have an inseam of 31.5cm, which is 1cm shorter than the Touring shorts. We would recommend that you purchase the same size as the Touring Short.
