Evolution of a classic.

The Rapha Men's Classic II Bib Short pays homage to the timeless style and support afforded by the original, but with an updated chamois that's size-specific across its range, as to ensure it's tailored to your physiology and stature. Besides its updated pad, the Classic II Bib Short remains virtually the same as its predecessor, which is a good thing if you prefer the body-wrapping support and freedom of movement afforded by its buttery-smooth and stretchy Lycra fabric.

Looking at the uppers, the luxurious mesh bib straps remain faithfully in place and meet a large, u-shaped cutout at the rear, which enhances temperature regulation on those warm summer days, seeing you won't have as much overlapping material between bib short and jersey. It's constructed with flatlock seams that sit smoothly against your skin, as to prevent irritation from slowing you down as you pedal swiftly down the road. Additionally, it features an updated leg gripper that's steadfast in placement, but at a reduced weight for a minimalist feel against your skin.

Super comfortable, but...

  • Fit: Runs large

I've ridden in Castelli and Assos for years, but decided to try a pair of these. I have to say they are the most comfortable bibs I've ever ridden. I'd say they are just slightly larger than indicated on the size chart (I'm 5'10" 145lbs with a 31" waist and chose the small size), but the fit is first rate provided you select the right size. I love the understated styling and soft material, too. However, the soft material has a cost in terms of durability. I went to wash them in the sink yesterday and was alarmed to find that the material on the seat has badly eroded where my sit bones contact the saddle. I have ridden these on four rides of about 2 hours each. At this rate, I expect there will be holes worn it them shortly. So, I'm giving them 2 stars. I would rate it 5 stars based on the positive points described above, but I feel it should be significantly discounted for the flimsy material on the seat, which is resulting in unacceptable wear. Bottom line is I can't recommend a pair of shorts for this price that get holes in the seat after a month or so of riding.
