We try to keep our shorts classy around here. Most of the time anyway. For 6.yo we wanted to have a clean design in the mix in order to prevent motorists yelling unnecessarily at you from their vehicles. We all know motorists hate color. It’s time to make some concessions in the name of Share The Road. Or maybe we don’t care what motorists think. Either way the shorts are mostly black but we couldn’t stay away from color all together so we flooded one of the leg grippers with that lovely shade of hot pink and scattered our RDO LAB graphics all over the place. If you look closely you’ll see topo lines on the cuffs as well. We lifted that graphics from USGS maps of our beloved local Table Mountain where Donkeys frolic and rattlesnakes swarm. It’s a hard place to ride, and these are shorts for hard riders – ish.
Bonus: Just like we did with the 6.yo jersey these shorts are designed to mix and match with our 5.0 kits in order to create never before seen kit combinations. Feel free to mix and match at your leisure in order to create your own Rodeo Kit 5.5 mash up.
With a completely overhauled design, the Pro Team Bib Shorts were designed for training and racing in the world’s biggest races. Rapha has worked hard to improve the comfort of these bib shorts, with a new dual-density chamois pad that provides more support and comfort even under duress. The pad changes in thickness according to your size (previously, one size pad was used in all bib shorts), ensuring a superior fit.
The bibs have a unique thigh gripper printed directly onto the fabric of the shorts, making for a low profile finish that supports your legs with fewer seams. The upper section of the bibs has also been re-engineered to provide more stretch and support, with less pressure over your shoulders. Folded bonded edges on each upper strap allow for a low profile underneath your jersey, and the multiple colour options allow for greater matching with other Pro Team products.
The leading edge of Rapha performance technology, for the edge of your saddle.
