Award winning bib shorts with an updated fit

Designed both for training and racing, the Women’s Classic Bib Shorts offer exceptional performance and comfort in a range of riding conditions.

Cut from a matt Lycra fabric (the same used in the regular Women’s Bib Shorts) that is both breathable and high wicking, the shorts use a chamois pad designed specifically for women 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 new subtle, low profile, leg gripper that gives an improved fit.

The bib section is made from two different mesh fabrics, a close-knit mesh at the front to offer warmth and a breathable, open-knit mesh at the back. In warmer weather the bib section does away with the need for a base layer. Designed to be worn with the Medium Support Bra or the Light Support Bra, the back of the shorts also has a large cutaway section for maximum breathability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love love These are so comfortable to wear that I will be getting a second pair. I have worn them for both short and long rides and no issues whatsoever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and flattering My first bib shorts from Rapha and I would love to buy more. They fit perfectly (I'm 5 ft 3" and 130 lbs). The upper mesh portion means I don't need any other layers with a jersey when it's cool. The leg bands and length are great and don't ride up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent staple Really like the new gripper instead of the band which cause a bit of sausage leg.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fabulous fit, really soft and comfortable First ride out of about 45km I was really impressed with body fit. I'm size 12 and medium excellenrr fit. Super soft body mesh and straps don't cut into shoulders. Fine mesh so cooling. Pad good but not as comfy as a rival pad on longer rides of 70km plus. Very stretchy legs and waist..i'd say larger than the Rapha ladies team bibs I bought at same time. Quite long legs with no 'sausages'..and I have large thighs! Material more of a cotton feel on legs .. Water soaks straight in but very comfy. Not a shiny Lycra product. Recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love Rapha Bibs! I have a different style Rapha bib but it's very similar to this. So I tried these because they were on sale and love them just as much as my other bibs! They have a rubber grip at the end of the leg of which I note only because I know this matters to some people. My absolute favorite thing about these (and my other) Rapha bibs is they are cooler than the normal style. Because the top is a thin mesh fabric instead of the spandex they breathe much better. Definitely a must try! I am 5'3'' and 155lbs, I wear a Medium.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall very comfortable Great style and fit, assisted by the zip front bib. Could be slightly more padding directly under my sitting bones, but otherwise very comfortable.

Can I know what's the length overall length of this bib? From the top to bottom. Thanks!

Asked by: Sayu
Hi, our measurements are not by top to bottom but by inseam. These bibs have an approximate length of 24.5cm on a size Medium and each size is approximately one centimeter longer or shorter according to size.

I am looking at the style of the shoulder straps. They look difficult to get off/on quickly, e.g., for a quick restroom stop during a long event. Comments?

Asked by: LRaptor
These Bib Shorts are no more difficult to remove when nature calls than any other Bib Shorts would be as the Jersey would always need to be taken off first.

What is the inseam on these shorts? Short or regular? 

Asked by: skylergouds
The inseam on these shorts are regular. Bib Short lengths are regular unless there is a specified option to change this.
