Women’s bib shorts for comfort and support

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.

Designed both for training rides and sportive riding, the Rapha Women’s Bib Shorts offer exceptional performance in hot conditions. They are made from a matt, Lycra fabric (the same used in Rapha’s regular Women’s Shorts) that is extremely breathable and which also has excellent moisture transfer. The shorts use a chamois pad designed specifically for women riders and have a panelled construction to guarantee a superb fit. Flatlock stitching throughout means they won’t chafe, no matter how long or hard you ride. The legs feature tonal Rapha logos and a wide gripper that is knitted directly into the main fabric for improved comfort.

The bib section is made from two different mesh fabrics (both of which are cream to avoid showing through light-coloured jerseys) and cut high for a more flattering line. A close-knit mesh at the front with an open-knit mesh at the back improves breathability. Designed to be worn with a sports bra, the back of the shorts also has a large cutaway section for maximum breathability. Other styling elements include a polka dot tab.

Reviews:

If you’d told me a few years ago that I’d be about to recommend a pair of cycling shorts costing £160 I’d have had a very stern word with myself. I still don’t even own a dress costing that much. Plus I’d always held the view that Raphaites were mugs who had not only drunk the Kool-Aid but paid through the nose for the privilege. I considered the brand to be the height of style over substance - 90% monochrome marketing (justly lampooned here) and 10% Lycra. Then I tried their bib shorts.

Crikey, these are good. First, they look great. Super flattering. The material feels expensive - as well it should - and not even the tiniest of threads has come loose after a summer of hard riding and many washing machine cycles. The grippers at the bottom kept everything in place, without sticking or pulling on the odd stray hair like the Café du Cycliste shorts.

Rapha is quickly gaining a reputation as a go-to brand for boutique, high-quality and high-price cycling gear. At US$235/ £165/ AU$240 the Women’s Classic bib shorts perform better and last longer than many cheaper competitors, and remain more affordable than other elite or boutique alternatives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and fit This is my second pair of Rapha bibs. I was pleased that the sizing was accurate, despite the styles being different. Fit and feel fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Bib Shorts These are my first bib shorts and they're great. The chamois is pretty good, the length of the body perfect and the length to mid thighs is just right. Only used once but very happy with the fit, comfort and look.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from COMFIEST BIBS I OWN. THANK YOU RAPHA. I love these bibs, they fit so well and the chamois is unbelievably comfy. The only thing about these bibs is the colour. In the picture they look ivory but in reality they are off white/cream.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Color not exactly the same I bought this bib short for my friend. The photo in the online store showed the product is in white color. When I received the product, the color is in cream, looks like light yellow.

Two Questions: 1. Is there silicone on the legs of these bib shorts & can you tell me if the chamois suits someone who will be sitting upright more than leaning forward on the bike. Plan to use them for spinning, but not able to lean forward consistently

Asked by: MonicaT
Hi, yes there are silicone gripers on the legs. Our Classic range is best suited for longer days on the saddle and therefore comfortable on an upright and on the hoods position. For a longer hours on the drops you may be best suited to the Souplesse range.
