The Cargo Bib Shorts carry everything you would keep in a jersey. Tested in the toughest conditions, our innovative cycling shorts with pockets were designed to excel in extreme conditions but are just as comfortable on the commute or club run. By placing pockets on both legs and the upper back, the Cargo Bibs free you from the need for a traditional cycling jersey with pockets. Whether you’re carrying a little or a lot, the stretch opening keeps the contents in place, whilst the pockets on the back were positioned to sit above the waistband of our Randonnée shorts. Made with a lightweight, water-resistant material, they shed water in the rain but also perform in temperatures up to 30C. The perforated chamois pad has been designed to dry rapidly for freshness on multi-day adventures. Comfortable shorts are the cornerstone of every great ride, and now you don’t need anything else to set off. When you want just one piece of cycling kit for the job, the Cargo Bib Shorts will carry you through.

“Rapha's new Cargo bib shorts are ideally suited to adventure rides where a less pro race look is desirable. They're also handy for commuting, audax, touring and any long distance cycling.”
David Arthur -

“I found there weren’t really any riding environments were the Brevet Technical T-shirt and Cargo bib shorts weren’t appropriate. To be able to boast such well-rounded performance is a rare and desirable trait and means as a rider you aren’t likely to regret investing in the kit.”
Sam Challis -

“After well over 1500 miles of wearing them in the past couple of months, I can safely say the Rapha Cargo short quite possibly is the best pair of shorts I have ever worn.”
