What's all that good weather for if not for hitting the roads and eating up the miles?  

Rhythm Bib Shorts are made for all-day comfort in mild to warm weather. They do everything a bib short should do, keeping your chamois in place and sitting comfortably at your waist.  


The new Rhythm chamois is our new exclusive design for mid-distance rides (about 5 hours) and cross-over features that make it ideal for those short, fast blasts too. The multi-density foam is sculpted for more cushioning around your sit bones, with less padding around your soft areas so that your circulation isn’t restricted. 

Friction and moisture cause chafing; the Rhythm chamois has shaped wings to create a smooth, flush surface that doesn’t rub. At 13 mm (at its thickest) the pad is slim and flexible enough to contour to your shape for a good fit. To reduce moisture and bacteria build-up, perforations in the chamois create airflow, and the silver-based Silvadur anti-microbial treatment keeps your chamois fresher for longer. Tested on shorter runs and Lakeland hike-a-bikes, the Rhythm chamois is just as comfortable when you're off the bike. 

To make sure all that engineering is put to good use, we worked closely with our factories to make sure the pad is accurately placed so that you’re cushioned in all the right places 


Rhythm Bib Shorts act as a second skin. The polyester/spandex lycra is stretchy yet supportive, giving you freedom of movement whilst keeping your chamois securely in place. The lower body fabric is also highly breathable, high-wicking and quick-drying, which means it draws moisture away from your skin so that it evaporates away to keep you comfy. The mesh upper body lets you stay cool.  

The Rhythm shorts are panelled for an anatomical fit. Flatlocked, low-bulk seams minimise rubbing and sit comfortably against your skin, and gripper hems on the leg openings stop your shorts from riding up. Reflective logos on the back keep you safe and seen on the roads.
