Core Cargo

Carry more on every ride.

Description

Our cycling shorts with pockets have changed the way many of us dress to ride. With two mesh pockets on the legs, the Core Cargo 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 cycling 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 Shorts are durable and comfortable. Without bib straps, they are cut lower at the front to avoid riding up when in an on-bike position. The mesh pockets on the legs hold a phone or other small items securely while a curved top seam makes for easy access. Laser-cut leg grippers hold the shorts in place while flat locked seams, together with our tried and tested Classic chamois pad, minimise irritation and chafing for comfort every time you ride.

“To my mind, the Core Cargo shorts' quality and comfort, and the convenience of the side pockets, justify the price. I really like the classic look, and that the side pockets mean you can easily jump on the bike with just a loose T-shirt on top, and the new Classic chamois performed really well. They are a quality pair of shorts and well worth the money.”

– Sarah Langridge, Road.cc

“My concern with the side pockets was that items might move around, creating unnecessary jangle and irritation. However, placing a mini pump in one and my (oversized) phone in the other, I was pleasantly surprised to find my kit stayed put and was near forgotten about. I’ll put this down to the tightly woven mesh of the compartment, which it has to be said, looks pretty cool with the ‘Rapha’ logo just peaking through.
