Size Guide: Santini Bib Shorts

Our  size guide is here to help you get your bib shorts from Santini to fit correctly - first time round!

Unfortunately, the sizing of bib shorts is not an exact science (unlike jerseys) so the information presented here is in good faith and  just a guide so please don't hold us responsible if they don't fit!

If you are at all unsure - we would be very happy to advise - simply email us your height, weight, chest and waist (the final two dimensions will give us a feel for your overall build) and we will happily offer you some advice based on over thirty years of working in the cycle clothing industry.

Whilst many of our competitors still quote waist sizes, this dimension actually has very little relevance when it comes to bib short sizing. This part of the garment will stretch almost indefinitely.

Your height and weight are the two most important dimensions. The size chart below gives you an indication, but exact sizes may vary depending on individual body shapes as well as fit preferences.

It is also worth noting that some models fit up longer ( Santini EDGE) whereas some models fit up shorter ( Santini MAX2).

New for 2016/2017! We don't often commission matching retro team bib shorts, but we've made an exception by providing these highly accurate bib shorts to match the Raleigh Banana retro jersey.

Given the fact that Dave Rayner rode for the team in 1988 and 1989, we felt it was only right that the Dave Rayner Fund received a £10 donation for every garment sold - just like the Rocket Espresso Milano garments.



Made using modern fabrics from SITIP, these bib shorts feature a Santini MAX2 seat pad, silicon leg grippers, mesh braces and some funky Santini rubberized clothing labels.

Although we first sold the Raleigh Banana jersey in July 2010, we have never sold the matching bib shorts.  But with the popularity of events like L'Eroica, we decided this was a great opportunity to get a limited production run produced.

Getting the design finalised was pretty easy as our vast collection of Winning Magazines contained various photos that gave us an excellent starting point. Santini actually made the original team kit but did not have any original garments in their archive that we could reference.

Just like the matching Raleigh Banana team jersey we will donate £10.00 (GB Pounds) to the Dave Rayner Fund for every garment sold.   This donation is thanks to Raleigh UK waiving a royalty charge for using their name and Prendas Ciclismo matching the royalty.

We would like to publicly thank both Geoff Giddings and  Pippa Wibberley of Raleigh UK for their co-operation and invaluable assistance in making this project happen.
