Classic Bib Shorts II

The evolution of a classic

Description

*Also available as part of a bundle

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.

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.
