Rapha Women’s Shorts combine the comfort and performance of the women's shorts without the inconvenience of bibs. They have a high waistband at the back featuring a soft gripper tape for a snug and secure fit. The front panel is doubled over rather than stitched to prevent digging in when riding and the chamois pad from specialist manufacturer Cytech is designed specifically for female riders.
They are made from a lightweight and durable stretch fabric and have a panel construction. The shorts are cut long in the leg for a more flattering shape. The seams of the shorts have been positioned to prevent chafing and inside are finished with soft, flatlock stitching. Style elements include contrast cream binding on the back of the shorts, Rapha logos on each leg and reflective tabs to improve visibility.
“Made using incredibly soft and lightweight material, I found them to be a supremely comfortable pair of shorts. If you’re after a comfortable pair of shorts that are built to last, then these are a worthwhile investment.”

"Every woman spends her life searching for the perfect pair of jeans, ones that are comfortable, look great, aren’t too fashionable but just stylish enough, are versatile, and even forgiving when she puts on a pound or two. Most never find those jeans. Somehow, maestros of cycle clothing Rapha have managed to address the female cyclist’s equivalent quest, the search for the perfect cycling shorts. I am going to show my hand right from the word go, here, I cannot recommend these shorts highly enough!"
