The Women’s Classic Shorts are a wardrobe staple, achieving a secure, comfortable fit without the extra bulk of bib straps. Still soft against the skin and sweat-wicking for comfort in a range of conditions, this updated version is made using recycled fibres for a lower environmental impact. The construction of the high waistband has been updated with a new mesh fabric that disperses pressure to ensure the shorts never dig in at the waist. In a snug, secure fit, the shorts are kept in place with a wider, soft gripper tape that sits close to the body without compression.
These shorts are 25mm longer than the Short version, giving riders the choice of leg lengths. Designed specifically for women, the dual-density, size-specific chamois pad features multiple foam layers and an antibacterial top sheet for comfort on even the longest rides. Style elements include branded flag labels on the back and printed Rapha logos on the side panels, with the addition of reflective piping for improved visibility.
