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).

'...the shorts feature Santini`s brilliantly breathable NAT chamois and NEXT gel pad, among the most comfortable we`ve tried...' Cycling Plus, September 2012

Andy`s favourite colour is green, so it was inevitable that he ordered himself a set of GreenEdge Team Issue bib shorts and jersey for the summer!

Whilst riding to work one morning in that very kit, the light bulb appeared! 'Wouldn`t it be great if we could offer our customers Santini Team Original bib shorts but in plain black? 6 weeks later, that idea is reality!

The Santini 'EDGE' bib shorts are exactly the same, in terms of seat pad, cut, silicon leg grippers, mesh braces as worn by the Orica-GreenEdge pro riders but without the logos - so will therefore hopefully match your current favourite jersey!

Whilst the Santini 'MAX2' remain very popular sellers for us, you might ask why should I buy a set of these?

Apart from the enhanced seat pad, these are cut longer in the leg (3cm) and also benefit from a new silicon leg gripper that is wider (4.5cm) which places less pressure on your legs.

Santini`s latest seat insert is the NAT seat insert. The NAT (Next Airflow Thermoshock) is the first Santini padding from the NEXT generation which offers advanced shock absorbption, is breathable, has an elastic memory, has a cooling effect and is self massaging.

If these are your favourite bib shorts, why not try these bib tights by Santini with exactly the same NAT seat pad at the heart of the garment.
