Lightweight bib shorts for hot and humid rides

Rapha Lightweight Bib Shorts have been designed to keep you cool and comfortable in hot and humid conditions. They are made from a soft, stretch fabric that offers exceptional breathability, is significantly lighter than other Rapha Bib Shorts and also incorporates sun-block treatment. Other features designed for hot-weather riding include a lighter mesh for greater breathability and a larger cutaway section in the back.

The shorts have a panelled construction to ensure an excellent fit, comparable to Rapha?s Classic Bib Shorts. The shorts also feature a new pad designed exclusively for Rapha. The pad has a perforated construction, which not only reduces weight but improves breathability by allowing more airflow around the seat area. Flatlock stitching throughout ensures the shorts won?t chafe. The Lightweight Bib Shorts are available in three colourways which correspond to the SS13 range of Superlightweight Jerseys and Lightweight Caps.

Key features:

  • Lightweight fabric
  • High-wicking mesh
  • Proprietary perforated pad
  • Larger cutaway back section
  • SPF factor 50+
