Modified and stripped-back for racing in the heat

The pro peloton has a long history of modifying their kit and equipment – including snipping away at the straps of their shorts to create a lighter garment for hot days. With this in mind, Rapha’s designers have dedicated a summer-specific bib short for racers, using lightweight fabrics and a perforated chamois to enhance moisture transfer and leave riders feeling cooler in the heat.

The bib straps are made using a far lighter mesh than the original Pro Team Bib Shorts, and have been trimmed to ensure less coverage of the skin. The lightweight perforated chamois is more resistant to sweat, while still delivering comfort for long days in the saddle. The seat panels of the shorts use a resilient performance fabric to prevent wear, while the short’s side panels are made from a very lightweight and breathable fabric to enhance moisture transfer. The grippers use a fine silicone print across a broad surface area to give a secure and comfortable fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfy Bought these for the summer months but have found myself wearing them well into October as there so comfy. The chamois doesn’t look that comfy at 1st but worn on a 74 & 102 mile where they’ve proven to be the best shorts I’ve ever worn

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So. California Perfection The weight/gage of these bibs, combined with the super chamois makes this a go to piece of kit. Light enough for the heat of the day but still enough feel to keep it's form. Does not retain as much moisture either. Fit runs a little roomy; I'm 5'7" / 140lb, and small fits great. I have other Rapha bib cuts, but the Pro T Lightweight is the perfect balance between lightweight & sturdy. Aces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality bib short Great firm fit with nice highlights on one side. (Wish the highlights were on the other for countries with RH drive though). I have two pairs of this style.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great shorts bad bibs These are really well thought out. The lycra on the bottom is thinner, more like sublimated shorts. The bibs are largely mesh. However, they are rigid, with no give at all.These bibs either fit or they don't.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the pricetag Pretty good shorts, but the chamois was a little thin for my liking, and the straps are pretty cheap. I get that they're "lightwight", but honestly the shorts should focus on being comfortable and high-performance before being "lightweight". Would never buy a "flyweight" option after this. Grippers were okay, but a little high on the legs and don't grip as well as some other brands. I'll keep using them, but they're certainly not my favorites, and at this MSRP, they really should be.

We bought a medium in this product as sizing looks similar to Santini and he wears m in Santini. The bottoms are firm but the straps are too tight and short - they don't give. Would exchanging for a large give extra length in straps?

Asked by: Pamela A
You can exchange these for a larger size and the Bib Straps will reflect the difference in size be a longer size.

how do these differ from last year's model (2016s)?

Asked by: chrischanny
The 2017 model uses lighter fabrics in this technical design. The bib straps are made using a far lighter mesh than the original Pro Team Bib Shorts, and have been trimmed to ensure less coverage of the skin. The lightweight perforated chamois is more resistant to sweat, while still delivering comfort for long days in the saddle. The seat panels of the shorts use a resilient performance fabric to prevent wear, while the short’s side panels are made from a very lightweight and breathable fabric to enhance moisture transfer. The grippers use a fine silicone print across a broad surface area to give a secure and comfortable fit.
