Modified and stripped-back for racing in the heat

If you are unsure of which bib shorts to choose, take a look at our new Bib Shorts Guide

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 Great Bib The updated pad in these bibs put them over the top. The fit is properly snug for a larger rider like I am. I can sit in the saddle all day and enjoy the comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect I loved these shorts so much that I bought a second pair. The fit is fantastic, and the chamois is great as well. They feel a bit rigid at first, but then they soften up and conform perfectly to the body.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightest, most breathable bibs Bought these in July for very hot and humid 75 mile ride on the Tennessee River flood plains of Alabama. These are the best summertime bibs I've ever owned, and I've purchased quite a few and ridden plenty in the summers of the southern U.S. I always wear medium size bibs from different vendors, and medium in these were perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a difference!!!!! living on Oahu, I don't have much choice for kits. Pretty much every store sells Pearl Izumi. Unless you go to a trek or specialize store. I have a pair of pro in r cool bib and comparing it to pro team lite. Oh man what a difference. It is definitely worth the money. I ride at least twice a week and put any where from 3-5 hours each time. These are now my go to bib and I will probably pick up a pair of brevet to try. I just hope that there is a store on Oahu that sells high quality products instead of the common brands.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little disappointed I'm a little disappointed, I was expecting comfortable shorts according to their value, but they do not fit well in the groin area, they tighten a little. I would think the number would be wrong, but it fit well inthe rest of the body.

Hi, I got a size XL for the Flyweight Bibs Shorts which fit slightly loose. Intend to downsize to L for the Pro Team Lightweight series. Is it advisable. Thanks

Asked by: Lim88
The Pro Team Collection has a race fit and is tighter fitting then the other garments in our collections so the XL could still an appropriate fit for these garments. You can return the garment to us within 90 days if the Shorts do not meet with your suitability.

Does the other Pro Team Bib, not lightweight, have a more comfortable pad than this bibs or just different?? Thanx

Asked by: DonT
Hi, there are no compromises on the comfort of the pad used in these shorts. It is just perforated and designed to dry quicker.
