Women's Classic Shorts

Test ride any of Rapha’s Classic products to destruction and if you are not 100% satisfied within 30-days you can return them for a full refund.

NB: The short version of the Rapha Women's Shorts is 80mm shorter than the regular version.

Rapha Women’s Shorts combine the comfort and performance of the women's shorts without the inconvenience of bibs. They have a high waistband at the back featuring a soft gripper tape for a snug and secure fit. The front panel is doubled over rather than stitched to prevent digging in when riding and the chamois pad from specialist manufacturer Cytech is designed specifically for female riders.

They are made from a lightweight and durable stretch fabric and have a panel construction. The shorts are cut long in the leg for a more flattering shape. The seams of the shorts have been positioned to prevent chafing and inside are finished with soft, flatock stitching. Style elements include contrast cream binding on the back of the shorts, Rapha logos on each leg and reflective tabs to improve visibility.

"Every woman spends her life searching for the perfect pair of jeans, ones that are comfortable, look great, aren’t too fashionable but just stylish enough, are versatile, and even forgiving when she puts on a pound or two. Most never find those jeans. Somehow, maestros of cycle clothing Rapha have managed to address the female cyclist’s equivalent quest, the search for the perfect cycling shorts. I am going to show my hand right from the word go, here, I cannot recommend these shorts highly enough!"

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great for petite asians I was shopping for short inseam shorts. This pair makes the cut as it is shorter n suitable for short people like me. Gd for warm humid weather. Still I feel it can be one more inch shorter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried Many Brands But This Is One Of The Best! Gentle grippers on the back of the waist and around the legs. I don't feel like I had to pour myself into these shorts and they are very comfortable. I've ridden 100 miles in these shorts at one shot and the padding never bunched up or the seams chafed. I would also like to add that there is subtle branding which I greatly appreciate!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are the best shorts ever! I bought these at the beginning of the summer, I am so glad I did. I wish I had 7 pairs one for each day of riding. They are shorter in length which is hard to find in a high quality road cycling short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's all about the chamois... Comfortable fit and the Rapha women's chamois is the best I've ridden yet! Would love to see a wider band at the thigh not unlike most men's higher end cycling shorts/bibs.

What is the inseam length of the regular women's classic shorts?  Description says the short style is 80mm shorter than regular.  What is regular?
