    You probably need to scope around looking for manufacturers who offer different leg lengths.

    Endura used to offer regular and long leg shorts, that was on the FS Pro or FS260 shorts that also came in 3 pad widths - I forget exactly which one now.
    The regular ones were VERY short.

    If they have stopped doing that now, try Pactimo, they definitely used to offer two leg lengths.

    Not aware of any other manufacturers, but hopefully someone else will pop up with info.

  • I am short but prefer longer lengths so most stuff actually works well for me.

    Endura have gotten longer. I am surprised DHB didn't work, I have found them amongst the shorter leg length amongst brands.

    If Endura, Altura and DHB are no good there are not many others I would recommend, as the others I have tried come up longer than these.

    The only other company that I find short in the leg are Rapha but I know they are an expensive option. They do have a sale on at the moment though.

    A mate of mine has a couple of Gore Wear pairs which do look rather short, although he is taller than I am.

    I don't have experience of some of the more boutique brands like Le Col or Attaquer so unsure how these compare.

    My Rapha shorts have a longer leg than my Assos ones.

    These would be ok for shorter legs



    Not sure if they come in black.

    TBF I used to compare my endura 'short' pro's to this exact length - needless to say they were condemned to turbo use until they died.
    *I ordered them in that length by mistake.

    I find rapha very short in the leg (maybe I have long femurs?) my pal who's the same height as me finds them long.

    It's personal.

    Castelli are fine for me and I've got short legs for someone approx 177cm (pedal top to saddle top approx 89.5cm).

    Just ordered some Castelli Endurance 3 bibshorts, read some reviews that recommended to size up.
