Rapha Core Cargo Bib Shorts review
Rapha punts the Core Cargos as a dependable pair of everyday bibs that will work for all types of riding, with the added bonus of pockets.
They’re also a more affordable version of Rapha’s high-end Cargo bib shorts (£195 / $270).

Rapha products are really bad with little to no value.
I don’t own any Rapha but 20 seconds of research shows they have a lifetime warranty *even including crash damage*. Sounds solid to me.

Best Chamois
When you are purchasing Rapha--you are buying them for the patented Chamois. That is what they are known for. They have a design like no other that perfectly covers the sit bones. You won't find a more comfortable cycling bib. After 30 year of cycling they are my favorite by far.

Premium comfortable bib shorts
Did a multi-day tour in Rapha Core bibs and had saddle sores by the end -- switched over to Ornot bibs immediately afterward and was able to keep doing long rides while the sores healed right up.

Premium comfortable bib shorts
In no particular order, I love my Rapha core bibs and Velocio bibs. Did a 125 mile gravel ride in the rain on Sunday and felt comfortable. That was in a Rapha pro team bib, but I'm sure the core would be just as good.
