Description

Simple, quality bib shorts to complement any ride, with a high-quality chamois pad for all-day comfort. The main panels use a dense-knit fabric for support and modesty while laser-cut leg grippers lined with soft silicone for a close, comfortable fit. The bib strap section uses high-stretch material, machined efficiently to accommodate longer torsos. Flatlock seams are positioned carefully throughout to hold the shorts in place without chafing. The shorts are available in an entirely black colourway, or with a white bib section to prevent straps showing under a light-coloured jersey.

“The Core collection is about optimising innovative fabrics and processes across the entire collection to reduce production hours and wastage. For example, the leg-gripper trim reappears in the jersey back, the material for the zip guard is used again on the sleeve tips, and bindings use rolled edges. This means we can produce Core garments without compromise, leading to a new standard for everyday cycling apparel.”
Alex Valdman, Creative Director

Reviews:

“I told my $500 Assos bibshorts that I had a new favorite and they slammed the door to the Kuku Penthouse in my face. But it’s the truth. The Core bibs are Rapha’s entry-level offering but they surpass that designation in both price and quality.”
9.3/10 - VeloNews

“Rapha's Core bib shorts are an impressive mix of knowhow from premium ranges – giving good quality, comfort and a great fit.”
★★★★½ Ash Quinlan, Road.cc

“The bibshorts are a particular highlight of the range. Flatlock seams join smartly-shaped panels, meaning chafing isn’t an issue and Rapha sensibly hasn’t compromised at the heart of the shorts – the Core bibs are built around the original Classic chamois that remains as comfortable as ever. As a result the Core bibshorts punch well above their weight at this price point. It is a similar story with the jersey – the polyester it uses feels more organic than synthetic, and has been treated with an antibacterial process so still smells reasonable even after repeated use.”
★★★★½ Sam Challis, cyclist.co.uk

“Rapha's most affordable bib shorts to date don't skimp on quality or comfort.”
Jim Clarkson, roadcyclinguk.com

“Since trying the Rapha Core bib shorts, they’ve become my go-to shorts – I’ve struggled to find anything that suits me better.”
9/10 Richard Windsor, cyclingweekly.com
