Women's Specific Pads

Women's Specific Pads

All of our padded shorts feature a chamois pad created specifically for women. Our pads are size-specific, meaning their size varies in accordance with the size of the short. For complete comfort on any surface, we vary the foam thickness and density for just the right amount of sit bone support.

No Underwear

No Underwear

All of our padded shorts are designed to be worn without underwear. All of our women’s specific chamois pads are pre-moulded and seamless to avoid irritation with a sweat-wicking, pH neutral topsheet for complete comfort. No underwear needed.

By women, for women

By women, for women

At Rapha, we are riders ourselves so we understand the confidence the right pair of (bib) shorts can give you. Every part of our women’s shorts, from leg grippers to shoulder straps and chamois pads, is worked on by female designers and optimised specifically for female riders.

Straps or no straps?

Straps or no straps?

Both bib shorts with shoulder straps and regular shorts without straps provide consistent comfort on any ride. Which you opt for comes down to personal preference. To give you the choice, our range includes multiple options with and without straps, so you can choose what works best for you.

Training & Racing

On training rides and race days, performance is the priority. Our Pro Team range is made with lightweight, technical fabrics for efficient sweat wicking and breathability, with anatomical panel construction for a locked-in fit. Each short is built around a tailor-made, women’s specific chamois pad.

Pro team chamois pad

For racing and training, the women’s Pro Team chamois features a seamless, pre-moulded construction to eliminate irritation and comes in two sizes for the perfect fit.

Classic Chamois Pad

Featured in both the Detachable, Classic and Core Bib Shorts, our women’s Classic chamois pad is designed for all-day comfort with dual-density foam, seamless construction and a super soft top sheet.

Adventure

On off-road adventures and multi-day trips, durability and packability are paramount. These shorts are made with hard-wearing technical fabrics that are tough enough for the rough stuff, dry quickly overnight and stow away easily in bike packs. Both also feature plenty of pockets so you can carry all the provisions you need.

Explore Chamois Pad

For comfort on mixed terrain, the women’s Explore chamois features high-density foam to the rear for optimal support, vibration absorption and rapid drying on overnight stops.
