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.
|XS||Up to 165cm||Up to 65kg|
|S||Up to 170cm||Up to 70kg|
|M||Up to 175cm||Up to 80kg|
|L||Up to 180cm||Up to 80kg|
|XL||Up to 185cm||Up to 85kg|
|XXL||Up to 190cm||Up to 90kg|
|3XL||Up to 190cm||Up to 100kg|
|4XL||Up to 195cm||Up to 110kg|
|5XL||Up to 195cm||Up to 120kg|
|5XL||Up to 195cm||Up to 130kg|
The Mapei retro bib shorts have been radically improved and brought up to date using the TONO bib short model as a basis - which the Trek-Segafredo professional team riders use.
Thanks to the improved cut, the number of seams have been minimized and Santini has opted for their excellent GITEvo seat pad to provide you comfort on your long weekend rides.
You can be assured that the bib shorts will stay in place thanks to the durable elasticated wide leg band with it's dotted inner silicone gripper.
