Classic design, unbeatable comfort

Cycling shorts are the most important clothing purchase any rider can make. Get them right and every kilometre that passes beneath your tyres will be a pleasure; get them wrong, and every kilometre will be an ordeal.

Building on our best-selling Classic Bib Shorts, version II features an updated, body-contoured pad with three sizes spread across the range to ensure perfect fit from XS to XXL.

The 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.

Reviews

“There's no more important a product for cycling happiness than a comfortable pair of padded bib shorts. Rapha has updated its best-selling Classic bib shorts with some refinements that ensure they're still one of the best and most comfortable pairs on the market.”
★★★★★ David Arthur, Road.cc »
“There's a reason for calling things "classic' and these are it. These are a go-to pair of bibs.”
The Riddla, Chicago
“The fabric certainly feels comfortable against the skin, and the flatlocked seams ensure there is no rubbing or chafing. The open back does a good job of releasing excess heat, avoiding sweaty dampness. The shorts are now fitted with a new, body contouring pad, which in itself is a pretty major change. This new pad is a masterclass in how a chamois should be. It has a level of support that belies its skinny nature, and it’s that skinny nature that gives it such a great fit: it’s minimal and unobtrusive yet great to sit on.”
★★★★★ Cycling Weekly »

Rapha leg and waist sizing info

Waist: natural waist measurement is taken from above the hips, close to the navel.
Inside Leg: from the crotch to the base of the ankle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great short for what I consider everyday riding I bought these with long commutes, weekend rides and everyday use in mind, they fit the brief exactly. Makes a change for me to go Navy but compliments the same colour jersey well. 32" waist - medium is perfect, with good strong leg grippers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for With the Rapha Classic Bib Shorts, you certainly get what you pay for. The build quality is excellent, comfort is above anything else I have ever used and I would recommend those that cycle long distances, or even short ones, to try these shorts.

I'm a size 32 waist but a 34 inseam. Should I buy the M or the L classic II bib short? 

Asked by: sizequestion
We would recommend that you defer to your waist size as the large Bib Short would not fit correctly around your hips and excess material chafe
