    Medium-weight shorts designed for city riding

    The Cotton Shorts are made with a medium-weight cotton twill fabric, and have a reinforced crotch gusset designed to alleviate pressure on seams when riding. The shorts have a zip-close front fly, with hook-and-eye closure and inside bearer button. A hidden ‘device’ pocket features on the left seam, and two rear pockets – one button-close pocket and one zip-close pocket with a covering flap – offer further safe storage of valuables while on the bike.

    N.B. The cut of the Rapha Cotton City shorts offers a more relaxed fit than our Randonnée shorts.
