“A great sunrise is worth getting up for.”

Tiffany Cromwell is an Australian road cyclist with Rapha-sponsored women’s team CANYON//SRAM. She splits her time between between Nice and Adelaide, and her eye-catching Ode to the Sun collection is inspired by her love for early rides that end with stunning sunrises. The vibrant fade design and stylised sun pattern evoke the colours of early morning in homage to getting out and riding hard before the day gets too hot.

The featherlight fabric offers excellent coverage, lightweight and hot-weather performance. Cut to fit perfectly on the bike, we’ve eliminated unnecessary seams, streamlined the construction and removed excess fabric to avoid fabric bunching at the hip. A new low profile and lightweight gripper gives a supportive but not over-tight fit on the thigh.

Tiffany’s striking Ode to the Sun design features on the straps and right leg gripper of these bib shorts, designed for hot and humid conditions. Using a super lightweight fabric, our Souplesse Flyweight Bib Shorts fit like our new Souplesse Bib Shorts II.

The lightweight mesh upper is super light and features high-stretch bonded trim to eliminate chafing, rubbing, and hot spots without compromising on fit.
