For piping hot city rides

The Cotton Summer Shorts are designed for commutes or casual rides in the sunshine, made with a lightweight 170gsm cotton fabric that keeps your legs cooler in warm to hot weather. Rapha City products are all designed to be worn both on and off the bike, and the clean style of these shorts dovetails with its technical features: the zipped side pockets have a new zip garage to stop things falling out; the fabric offers a slight stretch to move comfortably with pedalling legs; and hi-vis pink piping runs up the seam of each leg. Simply fold up your hem while riding to keep you more visible on the roads. Other features include two rear pockets (one zip and one button), a smart fold-over waistband, and bonded belt loops which help stop your belt sticking out or digging in as you pedal.

Rapha leg and waist sizing info

Waist : natural waist measurement is taken from above the hips, close to the navel.
Inside Leg : from the crotch to the base of the ankle.

I do not see the inseam length of your shorts anywhere.  in another post you refer to the size info, but that does not indicate inseam length for shorts

How long are these shorts, inseam and waistband to hem please. Is the waist size reflective of previous city shorts?

Asked by: Ju13
Hi, the sizing is as per on our size guidance measurements and should you need to exchange or refund, we have a 90 days return period for new/unused garments with tags and in saleable condition. The fit is similar to our previous cotton shorts.
