Carry more on every ride.
Our bib shorts with pockets have changed the way many of us dress to ride. With two mesh pockets on the legs and two more on the back, the Core Cargo Bib Shorts carry all you normally would in the pockets of a traditional cycling jersey, allowing you to wear whatever you please up top. These workhorse bib shorts excel on every ride, from short spins to work to longer adventures.
Made of a supportive, dense-knit fabric with fewer seams around the waist, the Core Cargo Bibs are durable and comfortable. The mesh pockets on the legs hold a phone or other small items securely while a curved top seam makes for easy access. Two additional pockets on the back sit out of sight under a t-shirt. The bib section uses a lightweight, breathable fabric that stretches to accommodate riders of all heights while laser-cut leg grippers hold the shorts in place. Flat locked seams, together with our tried and tested Classic chamois pad, minimise irritation and chafing for comfort every time you ride.

“The greatest compliment you can give a bib short is that you don’t give it a second thought once you’re in the saddle, and that’s been my experience with the Core Cargo Bib Shorts. The fit is just dialed, with a comfortable chamois and silicone leg grippers holding everything in place. The breathable mid-weight fabric strikes the right balance — not too heavy, but not paper thin, either. The mesh pockets are there when you need them, but lay flat when you don’t, making the Core Cargo Bib Shorts a versatile and very reasonably priced piece of kit.”
“In summary then, just as I concluded with the original Cargo shorts last year, the addition of pockets might seem like a gimmick but once you start using them you quickly realise they're actually really useful. I can certainly see a lot of clothing brands looking to add a couple of rear pockets instead of those pointless radio pockets you get on some pro-inspired bib shorts. Rapha has played a blinder with the Core range. Yes, it's still not exactly cheap, but just like Shimano's 105 groupset is every bit as good as Dura-Ace, so too the Core range is as good as Pro Team.”
“Built around the brilliant Rapha Core bib short, the Core Cargo adds versatility to an already comfortable package. I started by using these for my commute, then promoted them to standard road ride duties and now I'd use a pair on every bike ride if I could.”
