Cycling bib shorts for every road rider, wherever they ride

Designed to be worn on any kind of ride, from a short spin to a longer day in the saddle, the new Women's Core Bib Shorts offer exceptional comfort and value.

Cut from a high-stretch fabric, these cycling bib shorts give supportive and fully opaque coverage. Seams are kept to a minimum and carefully positioned to prevent chafing and a proprietary chamois - which also appears in the Women’s Classic Shorts - is incredibly comfortable, even on day-long rides.

Laser-cut leg grippers, lined with soft silicone create a soft and flattering fit, and prevent the shorts from bunching and moving out of position. Subtle, tonal Rapha logos feature on the thigh.

The upper is lightweight, breathable and features wide shoulder straps and a cut-out back section for ventilation. Simple, quality comfort for every road rider.


  • The same Rapha chamois pad used in all Women’s Classic Bib Shorts, chosen for comfort
  • Black dense-knit, fully opaque fabric
  • Colour-matched trims throughout for understated elegance
  • Laser-cut, soft-silicone leg grippers to keep the shorts in place
  • High-stretch bib accommodates any rider height
  • Comfortable flatlock stitching to reduce chafing


  • 82% polyamide
  • 18% elastane


  • Gentle machine wash 30C

Rated 5 out of 5 by from well made and flattering! The Core Bib shorts exceeded my already-high expectations. They are well constructed, comfortable and flattering. The construction of the upper section lies smooth and conforms to a moving body.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dreamy for Tour Down Under I bought these bibs before heading to Adelaide for Tour Down Under last week. I did close to 450km all up, and couldn't fault these bibs. They were so comfortable I didn't even notice them. Probably a great sign! They're true to size - I'm 172cm and 60kg.

Can you tell me what thigh size these shorts are suitable for please - I am a UK size 12 but I have quite wide thighs and don't want to be uncomfortable or have sausage thighs!

Asked by: Thunderthighs
Hi, we do not have a specif measurement for the thigh but if you are a size 12 and that you have large thighs and do not wish to be to tight around the leg, we suggest you try a Large. Should you need to exchange, we have a 90 days return period.

Hi, how do the core shorts compare in sizing to the classic shorts ? 

Asked by: Ronsy
The Women's Core shorts are more of a race fit and therefore a tad tighter than the Women's Classic Bib shorts.
