Fitting tights and shorts can be tricky as a lot affects the overall fit, such as bum and leg size as well as height and waist size so it's often a good idea to try a couple of sizes

Although this sounds like a kerfuffle it's worth the effort to get the right size

Our Mens Tights and Shorts should fit close to the skin 

Our gear is based on a 6' tall man and if you are 5'10" and under you may find a size smaller will be a better overall fit

If you are over 6'3" or very chunky you may need to go up a size

If you are between sizes it's generally best to go down a size but we are available to help if you need some advice

We often find that people who measure Spare Tyre size can fit into a size 9 or 10 depending on their height

How To Try On Bib Shorts

When your bib shorts arrive, try them on and adopt cycling position. The shorts should fit snuggly but not dig in across your shoulders and legs and there should be no flappy fabric around the legs. If the legs are flappy then you need to go down at least 1 size but we can give you more advice if you email us some photographs and or your measurements.
