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.”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all rounder Was looking for an all round pair of shorts to wear this summer on and off the bike. Most high street styles are too short or are restrictive. I'm happy to wear these on any occasion shorts are socially acceptable and would also use them on long bike rides as I do not use padded lycra any more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely great I got these a couple of weeks ago. Have been using them constantly. Great fit, went one size down. I ordered first size 34, had to return them and get a pair of 32 (I am usually 33-34). They are a bit stretchy. Great details of course!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous "comfort" shorts I normally wear padded lycra bibs cycling, but for those more relaxed, leisure rides these are a fabulous - comfortable stretch fabric with few seams and zipped pockets. My wife wants a pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent touring shorts! I really like these. Expensive, yes, but the quality is evident from the moment you open the parcel. Beautifully made, they fit well and perform well on the bike. Cool enough for warm days too. They drape nicely and look good off the bike. They do run a trifle large. I would normally buy a 34 in jeans and bought that size here. They are just a tad loose. Not bad but if I lose weight riding this summer I may need a belt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly reccomend these shorts I bought these shorts for touring use when I am riding on and off road and don't want to wear a bib. I bought them in the same waist size I'd buy a trousers or jeans and find the fit spot on. They are not too close fitting nor are they too loose. The short is super stretchy and light making it really comfortable on the bike. I've worn mine with an undershort and they remain really comfortable. I've not ridden in the rain in them yet but the fabric looks good for water resistence and quick drying. The shorts are also smart enough to wear for work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great all rounder Bought this a few weeks ago and these are already my favorite pair of shorts. Stretchable fabric makes it an all rounder- I've used these at the climbing wall! I would get a size smaller than your normal waist size

Do the dark navy shorts have the pink details found on the other colors?

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.
