Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and warm 6’5, 200lbs, XL fits great. Lightly fleeced and soft. I’ve worn them in 50F for comfort and 32-40F with leggings. High quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work well in cold/ freezing temps Use these with merino leg warmers instead of tights - warm enough, fit better than tights and when it gets really cold (down to -10C) I use deep winter socks (which go to knee) and that is enough for me for an hour on the bike. Fit is tighter than classic bib.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another boring perfect Rapha piece I'm 6 feet, 155lbs, long legged. Medium fits perfectly, though the Pro Team thermal bibs are a bit longer in the leg and thus incrementally favored for me. These feel perhaps a touch more luxurious than the Pro Teams. I've worn them with leg warmers down to -8C and have been comfortable for a 45 minute commute (tights were in the laundry!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality and comfort I use Rapha clothes from 2 years and all items are excellent quality and fit

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Rapha Product These shorts are a great recent addition to my cycling wardrobe, worn on their own on warmer winter days and under biblongs on colder days. Like the standard Rapha Classic bibs, the pad is great and the thermal lining great for winter. The fit is slightly smaller than the Rapha Classic Shorts. Only potential addition would be a bit of reflective material on the sides given the usage will predominantly be in winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flawless These are just exceptional shorts. I also have the Pro Team thermal shorts and I don't know which I like better. Very comfy, warm, top quality, understated but classic looks. It's worth pointing out that the leg bands are narrow / old-school compared to the wide bands common today, but this is a moot point on winter shorts in my opinion because I always wear these with warmers; and the bands are comfy anyway even if narrow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Toasty Buns! Excellent accompaniment to the leg warmers. These babies are thick, warm, and soft. They take longer to dry, so give them at least 24 hours to air dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Fits well, keeps me warm. Where them underneath my Winter Tight when it’s getting colder. Love wearing them.

Does this have the pad from the classic II pad or the classic I bibs? Will they be reissued with a different pad in the next six months?

Asked by: Duffnote
These Thermal Bibs retain the same pad from the Classic I Bibshorts

Which is warmer, classic or pro thermal bibs?

Asked by: Agent Cooper
Both Bibs use the same Roubaix fabric. The difference lies in the fit of the Bib Shorts as the Pro Team are a tighter, more streamlined cut for racing and training at high intensity, whereas the Classic Bib Shorts are designed for all day in the saddle comfort

Is the bib "slim fit" or "normal fit"?

Asked by: Rafita15
Hi, all of our Classic range has a more generous size unlike the Pro Team for example, which is more of a race fit.

Why are these bibs excluded from the classic guarnty?

Asked by: P Diddy
Hi, the Classics Guarantee was designed to offer a chance to ride-test classic items that helped to establish the Rapha brand. This is four of our original items, the Classic Bib shorts, Jersey, Wind jacket and Winter Tights.

At what temperature ranges do suggest reaching for these thermals over standard classic bibs?

Asked by: Dooly
Hi, it always difficult to give exact temperatures as it will depend on your own temperature regulation and exertion level. However, we would recommend using the thermal bibs from temperatures around 10-12 degrees celsius and below. I hope that helps.

I'm in-between sizes (31 inch waist), is it better to size up or down?

Asked by: theantichristy
Hi Nate. We suggest sizing up. But we do have a 90 day return period should you wish to exchange then for the smaller size.
