The ultimate protection for wet-weather performance

The Pro Team Shadow Bib Shorts are the pinnacle in race-ready protection against unpredictable weather conditions. Made using a pioneering stretch-woven fabric, which is both ‘hydrophobic – rainwater rolls off it – and highly breathable, the shorts are designed to be worn when racing during days when it could be rainy, windy and sunny. In 2016, they were worn to victory in the changeable spring weather of Liège–Bastogne–Liège.

The revolutionary fabric of the Pro Team Shadow range has a DWR (durable water repellent) finish applied twice during the manufacturing process, which provides further rain protection, while the stretch-weave adds compression and micropores allow heat to move across the fabric membrane and away from the body, helping to regulate your temperature

“I travelled back home after La Flèche Wallonne especially to have my Shadow kit for Liège-Bastogne-Liège and it allowed me to perform at my best, even in that tough weather.”
– Wout Poels, winner of 2016 Liège-Bastogne-Liège

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waterproof Bib Shorts I wore these last Saturday for four hours in continuous pouring rain and didn’t get wet or cold at all. Temp was around 7 degrees, sizing is bang on, I’m 5ft 9, 11 and a half stone and I take a large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unreal The shadow fabric is the most impressive technical fabric I’ve ever used. I rode 4 hrs in pouring rain. I was wet at the end, but warm and comfortable. Just amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG Everyday I wake up and pray for rain and pestilence just so I can wear my shadow stuff. Look and feel like a pro - shame about my riding!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent excellent excellent I recently grabbed a pair of shadow shorts after getting the arm and leg warmers. I have been using a certain no rain brand. Which are a bit lighter, but I feel wet after 15minutes. Which is 14 drier than standard shorts. Step on in shadow shorts. This week I have been commuting (22miles each way) in wet weather. Shadow shorts on. With a race cape. By the time I get to work I am wetter inside the race cape than the shadow shorts! (From sweat!). I am now going to be getting the jersey to complete the set!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shorts ever. Ether than pro thermal shorts! Two rides in... great, great shorts. They work keeping rain off and the cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shorts for Wet Weather Feels secure when riding on mild weather days and on rainy days. Definitely a plus for my wardrobe. No need to worry about riding in a storm now. The material feels rougher then the other pro team shorts but it is on the outside so it does not irritates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very comfortable Racing fit so if you are normally a large, you will need an XL. Great product though

Hi, regarding the fit - it says this is as per the thermal pro team shorts - does this imply the they are longer in the leg fitting? 

Asked by: GrantYG
Hi, the Shadow shorts do have a longer leg like the Pro Team Thermal shorts.

In view of the somewhat negative review on their rain resistance are they just slightly shower proof ? Or was the review of a faulty pair

Asked by: Fezzy123
Hi, they are definitely shower proof, with ability to shed spray and dry quickly after a shower has passed. The Shadow range has been extensively tested and testimonials from team Sky, state this is the optimal fabric for high-exertion riding in inclement weather.

I don't see the Pro Team Thermal bib shorts in the line-up any more. Do these shorts offer the same warmth as the thermal bibs? Is the brushed lining the same as the thermal bib shorts?

Asked by: ridefar
Hi, The Pro Team Shadow range does not offer any thermal properties.

Hello Rapha. These look great and I'm very tempted. But I just wondered, how will I (or someone packing a bag for me) be able to tell these shorts apart from my existing collection of Pro Team Thermal shorts? (the white ones)

Asked by: Scoot
Hi, the material of the Shadow shorts is very different for the Pro Team Thermal shorts and easily differentiated.

How are these for riding in good weather? 

Asked by: Anders
Hi, in testing the jersey was found to still be comfortable with the zip open at temperatures up to 15ºc. This does of course depend on individual temperature tolerances and also exertion levels so will not be the same for all users.

Asked by: Windy
Hi, the pad is the same award winning Cytech pad used in all our shorts
