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.
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.
All Rhythm Bibs feature our custom 8 hour chamois team-tested and unanimously chosen by our women riders. Made with premium dual-density foam for greater support, stability and comfort over longer rides and rigorous terrain. The seamless construction and plush feel is all about luxurious against-the-skin comfort. And they are treated with Silvadur 930 anti-microbial to stay fresh day after day.
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.

The Rhythm chamois has a Silvadur 930 anti-microbial finish on it to keep it fresh, but this doesn’t mean you never need to wash it! To help your chamois lead a long and hygienic life, wash as soon after your ride as possible! Warm wash by hand or on a gentle cycle at 30°C. Use a non-biological detergent or pure soap. Do not use fabric conditioners or softeners. Do not bleach. Do not iron. Rinse thoroughly in clean water and allow to dry on the line out of direct sunlight. Tumble dry on low heat if you're in a hurry.

Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.
We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
