Rapha’s Guide to Bib Shorts

Our bibs have ridden around the world. They rode the path less travelled, the length of a country, and the width of a continent. They rode onto Grand Tour podiums and into the history books. Wherever you’re heading, there’s a pair in our range ready-made for the rigours of your next ride.

What to wear

 

Each pair of bib shorts in our collection is designed to meet the needs of different riders, and the demands of different terrain. Whether you’re riding near or far, fast or slow, browse our selection below to find the pair that suits you best.

Pro Team Bib Shorts


These bibs rode when no one was watching, when everyone pulled together. They rode with yellow, green and polka dots; with national bands and rainbow stripes. Lightweight and compressive, the Pro Team Bib Shorts incorporate high-stretch straps, low-profile leg grippers and a race-ready chamois pad. They are the choice of EF Pro Cycling, and the envy of their rivals.

Fit

Suited to riding in an aggressive position and cut close to keep you aero. Re-engineered stretch bib straps offer unrestricted comfort.
