Santini 'ADE' Bibshorts (MAX2 Insert)

Size Guide
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).

With these Santini bib shorts priced under £40, we hope that we can introduce the Santini brand to a new range of customers.  We picked up a stunning deal on these bibshorts thanks to a cancelled export order and they are available in a good range of sizes from S to XXL.

You'll note from the product features above, that we do not mention that these bib shorts are made in Italy.  So we'd like to address that on the product page in order to remain transparent.

They are made by Santini in their Albanian factory as the original client needed a cost effective solution.  It's the very same place that made the four, colourful Art Series t-shirts that sold so well for us in 2015-6.  Hand on heart, we were a little taken back by this and had numerous conversations with Santini to ensure the product was of sufficient quality for us to sell to our customers.

To re-assure you - we've extensively tested the garment and can happily confirm that despite me being used to garments that are higher up in the Santini range - they performed very well on all test rides with the silicon grippers particularly effective both with knee warmers and against the skin.
