Hi guys,

Anyone knows how does the sportful bibshort sizing works? It says that XXXL is for 185cm tall only which I find silly, I am 195cm and usually use XXL on Santini, XL on Gore, XL on Shutt, going by that sizing chart I must be an XXXL is that correct?

  • I'm 175cm tall and a 32" waist, and a size large fits me just right in Sportful bibshorts. In my experience Sportful come up a touch bigger than Santini, but I guess there will be some variation from model to model. The only caveat I would add is that the two pairs of Sportful bibshorts I have come up quite snug from the crotch to the shoulders and if I were much taller I would need to go up a size. Not sure if this helps, but it may give you a guide.
