Rapha - Souplesse II
Focus on speed free of distractions thanks to the protective and soft Rapha Women’s Souplesse Bib Shorts II. The shape of the bib shorts is built for perfect, aero-focused performance, with drag reduced to an absolute minimum thanks to minimised seaming (which has the knock-on effect of cutting down on chafing at the same time). This version of the Souplesse is built specifically for women with wider front straps that allows for your own individual bust size. A perfect fit then, further bolstered by a lightweight gripper on the legs that holds everything in place beautifully, without causing pinching.
Moving inside the shorts, the award-winning chamois used here is built to impress. Its cushion-y softness protects your most sensitive areas from saddle rubbing over long periods, and it also does a great job of wicking sweat away from the body when the road gets a little more intense. Elsewhere, reflective logos keep you safe and seen when the light is low, breathable mesh used in the bib straps work hard to keep you cool and excess fabric has been eliminated, so you won’t be faced with any annoying flapping when your speed increases.
