It’s not just the name that’s changed on the elite-level race day bib shorts for women. Rapha has incorporated feedback from the riders of Canyon//SRAM to improve their race-winning women’s bib shorts. Made with a lightweight mesh, the highly breathable upper section has been reshaped with more fabric across the back to provide more support around the waist. The bib straps have been slimmed down into an anatomical shape with high-stretch panels over the shoulders to reduce bulk and create a stable fit for all riders of all heights. A radio pocket is stitched in just above the waist. Below the waist, the short makes use of a new, high-stretch Lycra that is soft against the skin yet slightly compressive for an optimised race fit. The new fabric also incorporates recycled materials, making it 20% less impactful than the fabric we used previously. Low-profile, super-wide silicone leg grippers further improve stability while distributing pressure evenly across the leg to avoid pinching. At the centre of it all is our redesigned, female-specific race chamois whose dual-density constructive and quick-drying fabrics make for comfort, day after day.
