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.
