Women's Classic Shorts

If you are unsure of which bibs or shorts to choose, take a look at our new Women's Bib Shorts Guide

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 5 out of 5 by from In l♡ve. I wore these shorts for the 1st time on 44 mile ride. The shorts stayed in place and didn't pinch my upper inner thighs like other brands. Love love love them! Highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable! I love Rapha. Most racing brands don't fit me as I have a booty but these are amazing! To quote my friend "they're like butter".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Short but not too short Lovely pair of shorts. Purchased to wear under classic bib tights - ones without a pad. Do the job perfectly. Even though they are the "short" length still not too short for wearing alone in summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice shorts I bought the regular length as I like my shorts longer - I am 5'2" and the regular XS falls about 2" above my knees. Sizing is very accurate. I particularly like the pad which is very comfy. They look great on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm usually a bibs girl, but I love these shorts! Super comfortable waistband! Very glad I got these especially now that it is tights weather- I prefer to wear regular shorts under bib tights (which I LOVE), so I couldn't be more happy with my purchase.
