Simple, quality bib shorts for everyday riding

Simple, quality bib shorts to complement any ride, the main panels use a dense-knit fabric for support and modesty and laser-cut leg grippers lined with soft silicone for a close, comfortable fit. The bib section uses high-stretch material, machined efficiently for even distribution of stretch and to accommodate longer torsos. Flatlock seams are positioned carefully throughout to hold the shorts in place without chafing. The shorts are available in an entirely black colourway, or with a white bib section to prevent straps showing under a light-coloured jersey.

If you are unsure of which bib shorts to choose, take a look at our new Bib Shorts Guide »

“The Core collection is about optimising innovative fabrics and processes across the entire collection to reduce production hours and wastage. For example, the leg-gripper trim reappears in the jersey back, the material for the zip guard is used again on the sleeve tips, and bindings use rolled edges. This means we can produce Core garments without compromise, leading to a new standard for everyday cycling apparel.”
Alex Valdman, Creative Director

Reviews:

“I told my $500 Assos bibshorts that I had a new favorite and they slammed the door to the Kuku Penthouse in my face. But it’s the truth. The Core bibs are Rapha’s entry-level offering but they surpass that designation in both price and quality.”
9.3/10 - VeloNews

“Rapha's Core bib shorts are an impressive mix of knowhow from premium ranges – giving good quality, comfort and a great fit.”
★★★★½ Ash Quinlan, Road.cc

“The bibshorts are a particular highlight of the range. Flatlock seams join smartly-shaped panels, meaning chafing isn’t an issue and Rapha sensibly hasn’t compromised at the heart of the shorts – the Core bibs are built around the original Classic chamois that remains as comfortable as ever. As a result the Core bibshorts punch well above their weight at this price point. It is a similar story with the jersey – the polyester it uses feels more organic than synthetic, and has been treated with an antibacterial process so still smells reasonable even after repeated use.”
★★★★½ Sam Challis, cyclist.co.uk

“Rapha's most affordable bib shorts to date don't skimp on quality or comfort.”
Jim Clarkson, roadcyclinguk.com

“For weekday training and commuting, Rapha have totally nailed it. Bravo all round.”
Graham Hutson, The Times

Can I just wash and dry the shorts normally with a real chamois or do I need to do anything extra to maintain the chamois.

Asked by: Jules1
Hi, we suggest to wash sportswear with a non-bio detergent and non-bio conditioner if you choose to use a conditioner. When washing jerseys and bibs it is good to ensure there are no items in your wash that may damage these, such as velcros for example.

I have the long medium pro team bibs, How much shorter are the legs on these in medium and large?

Asked by: Hoven

Hi, I am 183cm and weigh 90 kg what size do you recommend? Also is the core chamois the same as the updated version for the classic bib?

Asked by: Timo1966
Hi, because fit is not just dependent on height and weight but mostly on each body shape and customer's personal preference to how customer's prefer garments to fit, it is hard for us to be exact in sizing advice. Though with the measurements you gave us we suggest you try a Medium and should you need to exchange or refund, we have a 90 days return period for new/unused garments with tags and in saleable condition. The Chamois pad is the same as the one used on our Classic Bib Shorts.

I own first gen core bibs and the classic bibs II. The chamois on the classic bibs seems different from the core bibs. Do I now understand that the same chamois is used for both? I love the value of the core bibs and they suit me well.

Asked by: Jtnoga
Hi, yes The Core Bib Shorts have the same Rapha chamois pad used in all our Classic bib shorts

What’s the difference between these and the classic bib shorts besides the price. 

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi, the only similarity is that the same Rapha chamois pad is used in both the Core and the Classic. The material and design of the bib shorts is different so the fit will also feel slightly different.

Hello Rapha! Give me a sizing advice for core, 176 cm and 77 kg male rider. Thanks 

Asked by: Speedbull
A large pair of Bib Shorts should be suitable based on these dimensions. Please do note you can return these to us under our 90-day returns policy should these not meet your specifications.

sorry to ask but i am a 31" waist with short legs what size would you recommend please

Asked by: fireplace
Hi, because fit is not just dependent on height and weight but mostly on each body shape and customer's personal preference to how customer's prefer garments to fit, it is hard for us to be exact in sizing advice. With the sizing you gave us we suggest try a Small because they do have a bit of give in them and this way the legs may be more suitable. Also, should you need to exchange, we have a 90 days return policy for garments returned new/unused and with tags garments.
