Fleece-backed shorts have long been a kit bag essential for pros who find themselves racing and training in cold conditions through the early and late season. Worn with leg or knee warmers, they offer incredible versatility and an unrestricted range of movement, alongside essential protection from the cold. The front panels of the shorts are made of a windproof and water-resistant performance fabric. A membrane is inserted to help keep water out, and a fleecy honeycomb inner wicks away sweat and provides a warm feel on skin. The shorts have the same size-specific dual density pad as the Pro Team Bib Shorts II, perforated to hold less water for more comfort on wet rides, and shaped for riding on the rivet with more support for your seat bone. With a slightly longer leg than the Pro Team Bibs II, and a higher cut on the bibs to stop drafts creeping up inside your jacket, these are perfect bib shorts for winter riding. Not only that, you’ll be able to show your allegiance to the Rapha Cycling Club, with reflective RCC logos placed on the rear and leg.
