Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely comfortable I purchased these on sale at Rapha. I thought they would be a good second pair, but, i wear them every time I can. I have since ordered more from Rapha. There is nothing like them from any vendor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort beyond comparison Had these about a month and very comfy! I own other high-end bibs but these surpass for comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable I bought these recently, and am really impressed with the build quality and fit. Not to mention that they fit my 6'4 frame pretty well (bought an XL). Very happy, and look forward to many a long ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shorts Love these, tight grippers, excellent pad which still feels comfortable hours later on long day rides. Nice subtle design/colours. As others have said bibs can feel tight when standing but once in riding position they are perfect. 3rd pair for me, so recommendation enough.

If I am an XL in a classic jersey, would I take an XL in this garment?

Asked by: srj1
An XL should be an appropriate size for this garment.

I bought this lightweight bib in size Small which perfect fit on my waist and around my thighs. But i find that the shoulder straps on this are digging in to my shoulders. Will this come loser in time? if not i might have to return it.

Asked by: VIAS
With use the Lycra does stretch and gets loser around the body to fit the dimensions of the individual.

Hi  I'm 175 cm high. Would the bib straps dig into my shoulder if I buy a size xs. Have no concern about other fitting issues. best regards

Asked by: ttttttttt
Hi, at 175cm tall, you should not have any issue wearing an x-small.

Hi, I am 186cm tall 80kg with a 32 inch waist and 34 inch inside leg, so sit between Medium and Large on the size chart, which would you recommend?

Asked by: Hutchy1
Hi, based on your measurements, we recommend you choose a medium in these shorts.

Hello, I am very slim – 28" waist and long torso, 6' tall. I've found that other makes are short in the torso and dig into my shoulders. Would the Small be likely to be comfortable, or should I look at specialist fit?

Asked by: PeterC
Hi, the elasticity of the bib straps means these have a quite forgiving fit on the torso, however we do offer a 90 day return or exchange policy if they don't fit you.

Hi there, I'm 6 foot 4 inches tall, with a 34 inch waist and 34 inch inside leg.  Is a L or XL more suitable do you think?  I wonder whether the shoulder straps might be a bit restricting on the L. Many thanks, Steven

Asked by: Doddsie
Hi, based on your measurements we recommend you choose a large. The bib straps should accommodate your height. As always, we do have a free 90 day returns policy if needed.

I'm 5'6", which one is better, short or regular bib shorts?

Asked by: June
Hi, dependent on preference riders may prefer either of the versions. As a guide, the regular version of the shorts in size M have an inseam of 25cm. The short version of this garment is 3cm less.

The chamois is profiled in the classic bib but not in the lightweight... is it a cheaper chamois?

Asked by: Kelly D
Hi, these shorts do not use a cheaper chamois. They also use a deluxe cytech pad.
