Test ride any of Rapha's Classic products to destruction and if you are not 100% satisfied within 30-days you can return them for a full refund.

A comfortable pair of cycling shorts is the most important clothing purchase any rider can make. Get them right and you can spend hours in the saddle without even noticing them. Get them wrong and every kilometre will feel like a hundred. The Rapha Classic Bibs have been designed for total comfort.

The most important component in any bib shorts is the pad and Rapha shorts use the top of the range pad from specialists Cytech. It has slim, body-contoured padding and a soft, chamois finish.

The shorts are made from a soft, matt-black Lycra with great stretch. The bibs are made from a luxury mesh material with a large cutaway section in the back to prevent overheating. For extra comfort in the saddle, Rapha's bib shorts have flatlock stitching throughout to prevent chafing and are finished with soft gripper around the legs. The shorts also have a small key pocket, Rapha logos on the legs, and are cut low at the front for calls of nature.

"One of the best chamois I've ridden. Not only are the shorts comfortable but they are long-lasting. Normally the material wears out before the actual chamois does! The uppers on the shorts keep their elasticity and the bibs stay up without sagging." - Kristian House, Rapha Condor JLT professional
"Rapha's product offers a slightly tougher, more supportive short material (polyester with spandex) that earned universal praise for durability in the washer (a few testers put the shorts through a year of punishment) and comfort on the bike." - Awarded Editor's Choice by Bicycling Magazine, June 2010

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Bib Shorts Great cycling bib shorts! Very well made, and extremely comfortable. I now have two pairs, one of which must be more than five years old.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from bibs as bibs should be... having been a short man for all of my cycling life i had decided to take the plundge and invest in some bib shorts. having never had a pair of shorts that have over the shoulder straps on before i was a little nervious about fit etc. As Rapha are a class leader in their field i had decided that they would be a good place to start. i've had other items and love them all. i checked and double checked the sizing and then made my order. the shorts arrived and as always i was impressed with the delivery and presentation of the item. once out of the bag i was liked the feel of the material and once on the fit was spot on. the pad seems very well sized and thought out and i'm sure i will enjoy many hours to come in the saddle. i am still waiting to use them in anger out on the road. although they are currently only bedroom bib shorts i have every confidence that they will be happy company for me over many many miles....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal - does exactly what is needed Needed a new pair of bib shorts and went for these. Have now used on several rides (in colder weather, with leg warmers / base layer tights underneath), and they have been great - comfortable, well-fitted. No complaints - does exactly what is needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and good fit I usually struggle to find a good size - tall and thin, this mould to me well, are supple and the pad is great

I have the Core bibs and Classic Flyweight bibs, both in medium. How will a Classic bib in medium compare in fit and feel with either of these (as there are some subtle fit differences between the two bibs I already own).

Asked by: Disco_Stu
The Core and Classic Bibs will both fit in similar ways as they both have a relaxed "non-race" fit. The Core Bibs are our Basic Range and will be comfortable, durable and good for everyday riding. The Classic Bib Shorts have an updated body-contoured pad with three sizes spread across the range to ensure a perfect fit. The Classic Shorts shorts are made from a soft Lycra to allow exceptional freedom of movement, while the bib straps are constructed from a luxury mesh material, with a large cutaway section in the back to prevent overheating. Flatlock stitching ensures all seams lie completely flat to deter chafing, and a new leg gripper provides better grip at a reduced weight.

I’m 71kg, 6ft, 30 waist. Would I be ok with a small ?

Asked by: Corn
Hi, given your measurements it does seem as you may fit a Small in the Classic Bib Shorts. Should you need to exchange or refund, we have a 90 days return period for new/unused garments with tags and in saleable condition.

What’s the difference between these and the core bib shorts?

Asked by: Standing100
Hi, the Classic Bib Shorts are overall completely different to the Core, both in materials and design. You may find these are softer and have a nicer stretch but both benefit from the same Cytech Chamois pad. You may find the Core bib shorts to have more of a compressive feel.

I have a leg length 75 cm, which is XS. But my waist is close to 90 cm, which belongs to size L according size guide. What size should I choose for a best fit?

Asked by: Alken
The Small would be too small based upon the dimensions you have provided. You could certainly try the Large size to see how this would fit. We do have a 90 day returns policy if the garment you choose does not meet your specific specifications.

hi will there be a difference in the length of the bibs between XL and XXL? I have a 36" waist and a long body. I ordered XXL but I think they may be too large. Please advise... Thanks

Asked by: simon v
Hi, there is a small difference in the bib length between x-large and xx-large. Based on your measurements, we would normally recommend you choose an x-large.
