Technical city cycling shorts for hot and humid conditions
These stylish, slim-fitting shorts are made from a lightweight, breathable fabric and are designed for city riding in hot and humid conditions. The fabric is quick drying, has excellent stretch and is also crease resistant, making the shorts ideal for travelling.
The shorts feature crisp tailoring, including a smart, flat front and fly closure, with a high-cut back to ensure a great fit when riding. In addition to two front pockets, the back of the shorts feature one zipped pocket and one button-down pocket. Visibility details include a fold away hi-vis tab and hi-vis trim inside the legs which can be hidden away when not riding. Offset inseams guarantee comfort.
The cut of these Rapha City Shorts is more generous than in previous seasons. For the perfect fit we recommend downsizing by one size.
‟Light in weight and color, the slim-fitting Rapha Randonnee Shorts scream summertime city riding. Quick-drying, breathable fabric keeps you cool on sticky days, and an offset seam and high-cut back let you ride in comfort - and keep your back covered.”

Rapha Bidon - Large
Someone asked a reasonable question about what the material was. The answer—"These Shorts are made of a quick-drying lightweight stretch man-made fibre"— doesn't cut it. What are these made of?
Concerning sizing, Selection is in numbers rather than S, M, L, i want a large so what number do I select.
I have a 20 mile commute in and out of work on a road bike. Can I wear these comfortably without bib shorts underneath or not? I.e. is there any padding in the lining?

What are these made of? There’s no technical details provided.
Are these stretchy enough to squat in at the gym?
My partner has these shorts from a previous season in a 32. You are suggesting downsizing (which would mean going to a 30). Are returns/exchanges free?
Thank you for your request. We’ll contact you when your Randonnee Shorts is available.
