High-performance bib shorts for female riders

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

Technical bib shorts for intense summer training and racing. The shorts use the same fabric as the acclaimed men’s Pro Team Bib Shorts, which have been tried and tested by Team Sky at the highest levels of pro road racing.

NB: The short version of the Souplesse Bib Shorts is 50mm shorter than the regular version.

The fabric is treated with coldblack®, a highly technical dye that reflects the sun’s rays to keep the fabric cool against the skin, and the Souplesse Bib Shorts have an aero fit, for maximum comfort in a ‘race’ position on the bike. The bib section went through many stages of testing and refinement, and the result is a fine and comfortable mesh that contours to accommodate different bust sizes and body types, ensuring a perfect silhouette. The straps use a mesh fabric for breathability, and the waist and legs are tailored for a supportive fit.

"The panelled construction is designed to sit close to the body when riding, and once the bibs are on you'll barely notice you're wearing them. The Lycra itself is treated with 'coldblack', which Rapha describes as a 'technical dye that reflects the sun's rays to keep the fabric cool against the skin'. In action, it works. As a fair-skinned woman, I really feel the heat as soon as the sun puts in an appearance, but the Souplesse bib shorts kept cool, even when in full sunshine."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable Just bought two pairs of these. They're so comfortable, I forget I'm wearing them. The pad doesn't feel bulky but performs like it is double the size. Best of all... no sausage leg with the normal length shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rapha bibs, just work When you do long hours in the saddle, you need pads that are just going to work, and rapha delivers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable! I used them for the first time today on a 50 mile ride and forgot I was wearing a cycling short. They were extremely comfortable. I was worried about the straps being difficult to pull up when my body was wet with sweat but there was no issue. I am 5'4 and 120 pounds and wore the S and did not have sausage leg.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb pad Really comfy and well fitting shorts. I was initially concerned about the bib straps being too short/tight but they're fine whilst riding.

Hi, Just got the these and everything is great, but fabric bunches up at the back. I am short (5'-3"), may be that's why. The bibs are tight on grippers, but relaxed on thighs. Would a smaller size eliminate fabric bunching up? Thanks! Svetlana

Asked by: JamesL
A small may remove the fabric bunching up the back. We do have a 90 day returns policy where you can return your garments.

Hi, I already have the classic BIB shorts in XXS. I am interested in souplesse BIB in short. Do the size are same between classic BIB and souplesse BIB? I have a 25" waist and 150 cm height. Which size would you recommend for me? Thanks.

Asked by: mk27
Hi, please refer to the size guide as far as possible. The Classic Bibs are a more relaxed fit compared to the Souplesse and so it can be recommend to size up. With the information you have provided, we would suggest you try a XS. Should you need to exchange, we have a 90 days return period.

Hi, what is the difference between short and regular? (I think size XL for me, EU 42-44, the drawing isn't that clear to me)

Asked by: delphinibali
Hi, the difference in leg length between regular and short is 5cm. The same difference is true for all sizes.

I have a 28" waist but I'm concerned since my hips are 40" and my thigh/quads are 22". My waist is small but hips are usually a large. How do the leg openings and room for a backside fair?

Asked by: ss23
Hi, these shorts are cut with a close, race ready fit. The leg openings do have quite a lot of stretch to accommodate a variety of leg sizes. The classic shorts have a slightly more relaxed fit if these shorts do not work for your body shape. As always we do offer a free a 90 day returns policy if needed.

Asked by: Ceeel
