Rapha's Women's Core Cargo Shorts feature two mesh pockets on the legs, allowing you to carry all you normally would in the pockets of a traditional cycling jersey so you can wear whatever you please up top. These workhorse cycling shorts excel on every ride, from short spins to work to longer adventures.
Made of a supportive, dense-knit fabric with fewer seams around the waist, the Core Cargo Shorts are durable and comfortable. Without bib straps, they are cut lower at the front to avoid riding up when in an on-bike position. The mesh pockets on the legs hold a phone or other small items securely while a curved top seam makes for easy access. Laser-cut leg grippers hold the shorts in place while flat locked seams, together with our tried and tested Classic chamois pad, minimise irritation and chafing for comfort every time you ride.
