For hot days, turbo training and everyday commutes

Quality cycling shorts that complement any ride. No straps provides cooling comfort on hot days and during intense training sessions, as well as convenience when changing quickly. Soft waist elastic keeps the shorts comfortably secure whether paired with your favourite jersey or worn under trousers or loose shorts during longer commutes. The main panels use a dense-knit fabric for support and modesty and laser-cut leg grippers lined with soft silicone for a close, comfortable fit. Flatlock seams are positioned carefully throughout to hold the shorts in place without chafing. The shorts’ design is purposefully understated, with subtle tonal branding. As with everything in the Rapha Core collection, these shorts are nothing more and nothing less than the basics, perfectly crafted. For every rider, wherever they ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Core shorts This is my first purchase from rapha and I have debated buying their products for a long time but due to price and stigma among certain roadies I know, I always went elsewhere. Anyhow I needed some bibless shorts for indoor training and after a few weeks of using them a I am very impressed with the comfort and quality of them. I will purchase more clothing in the future especially now I know they use the cyclescheme.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Shorts Don’t think of Core as entry level, because these shorts are anything but that. Excellent construction and padding that surpasses much higher priced shorts from other manufacturers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best non bib shorts I use non bib shorts for indoor training. The best non bib I have ever used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minimalist Perfection Originally purchased for winter spin classes, they have become my first choice for road riding as well. The Large is a perfect fit for my 33" waist, 165 lbs. I thought the Core line might compromise on quality, but not so, materials, design and construction are superlative.

I'm concerned about any gap between the back/top of the shorts and a jersey when in a riding position. Can you confirm if the back of the shorts has been designed to sit quite high up the on back so that no skin shows, when on the drops for example?

Asked by: Chrisontherun
These Shorts have been designed with a higher waistband that covers the lower back. The waistband also features a gripper that will ensure a secure fit when riding.

Leg length? Draw string?

Asked by: Softrock
These garments do not have a draw string but instead are soft waist elastic for a secure and comfortable fit and the leg length is dependent on size and is between 21 and 26cm.
