Padded bib shorts you can just pull on, ride and forget. Equally at home on or off road with a comfortable and durable chamois to help keep you in the saddle and racking up more and more miles.

Slide yourself into a good bib and it will hug you nice and snug. The bib prevents the shorts sliding down, eliminates any cold spots around your waist and just makes you feel.. well a little more nurtured! 

The uppers are constructed in a fine stretchy polyester mesh for maximum breathability. When you step up the pace the mesh will help wick moisture away from your skin and reduce the cooling effect of evaporation. Layered under windproof and thermal layers the mesh will trap air, creating micropockets of heat to keep your core warm. The seams are flatstitched to sit friendly under your other garments.

These lightweight bib shorts have our KOM chamois to relieve the pressure spots that occur when you are in the saddle for extended periods. Moisture wicking and antibacterial to help reduce the saddle soars that are caused by grumpy bacteria developing over the course of a long ride. 13 mm thick PU foam where you need it most and slimmer around the sides for body contouring comfort.

Constructed from lightweight, breatheable, elastic fabric they are designed to be worn next to your skin, and since there is only one layer of fabric, they breathe well and keep you cool when the weather is hot. If you are going the big distances we always recommend that you apply a good quality anti-chafing chamois cream for cool soothing action.

For the best visibility on the UK roads we have positioned a reflective logo on the right thigh. Additional relective logos are positioned on the lower back and high up between the shoulder blades - roll on those barmy English summer evenings! The hems have tacky silicone grippers to prevent the shorts from riding up and going all Nora Batty on you!

Suitable for on or off-road riding - these are the bibs for great multi-day riding.

Chamois Fit

Rhythm Shorts come with a thicker 3D chamois made to perform for long days in the saddle. It's like a good pair of jeans or quality shoes: wear them, wash them, and let them soften and mould to your riding position so that the pad becomes super comfortable.

Oooh yes!

Comfiest bib shorts yet. Only worn once so far but based on today's windy 35 mile circuit I won't wear anything else unless it's snowing or I've worn these out!
The chamois is superb. Perfectly padded with a reassuring stiffness I haven't found before, though still unobtrusive.
Coming to about 1" above my knee they stay in place well and evenly throughout the ride.
The thin but quite strong fabric fits smoothly, making what creases there are small and soft, not big creases you get with some fabrics that you can feel and make a 'cracking' sound as you ride.
The upper part is even thinner, super comfy and vents well through the fabric.
You almost forget you've got them on!

Oh yeah!

Got these as they were a cosmetic second but I'm really chuffed with them. I train for strength (heavy deadlifting, squats, strongman training, etc) but use cycling as my cardio. I'm 5'10 and 20 stone and these are ideal. Thrilled to get a usable size and very pleased to keep the lower back warm in the icy weather. So far, the logo is still on!

Rode back to back 200k audax's to test these multi/all day shorts and they didn't disappoint really comfortable all day thank you alpkit for another excellent product so much so I have purchased a second pair !

Super comfy, top quality. A great buy...

Super comfortable material, simple design, well padded. Cuff material holds in place perfectly, chamois very firm, but does the job! Another great Alpkit purchase.....

Not usual AK standard

I've owned a pair of these for some time now and it's the only Alpkit product in my repertoire that I'm disappointed with. The silver logo has all but all peeled off. The padding seems too large and overly stiff. The quality of material doesn't feel great. I'm still using them as they're not completely unwearable but they are my least favoured shorts in the wardrobe. A real shame, I've got plenty of other Alpkit products that I'm very pleased with but i am put off from purchasing any cycling clothing in future, hopefully my faith can be restored
