Crit racing is a discipline apart, deserving of dedicated kit. The Pro Team Crit Bib Shorts make use of the same lightweight fabrics and dual-density chamois pad as our Pro Team Bib Shorts II but diverge on design with a unique pattern inspired by road markings flashing under racers’ wheels. For an aerodynamic advantage, the shorts are cut slightly longer in the leg, with a streamlined, single seam construction for a compressive yet comfortable fit. Low-profile silicone leg grippers keep the short stable during the toughest efforts while a reworked RAPHA logo on either leg adds a flash of colour. Our race-ready Pro Team chamois pad features dual-density foam for optimal support and an antibacterial top sheet for long-lasting comfort. The upper section is made with a lightweight, breathable fabric whose mechanical stretch provides excellent support. High-stretch panels over the shoulders ensure a close fit for riders of all heights and bonded edges make for a low-profile fit beneath a race jersey. For clear communication during the chaos of a crit, there’s a radio pocket on the back.
