    yes, dhb bit bigger than Castelli which i think are ridiculously small. DHB stuff is good quality, any of it that i have used i have been impressed with

    Thanks

    I’m a medium in Castelli so may go small on the tights I heard the legs are long on them.

    Most of my gear is Castelli , although I do like the feel of it I’ve had 2 issues last year with a pair of their shorts . The Velocissimo shorts were rubbish , the leg grippers came undone after 3 rides , had them replaced and the new pair developed a hole in a seam Seemed really cheap . The alpha jackets are a great fit however the inner zip on the wind lining needed replacing .
    Castelli although generally good do seem to have some quality issues

    As above go a size smaller with dhb clothing, I am lagrein castelli , medium in dhb that’s for both shorts and tops
  • Just to complicate matters... I’m 6’1 and 72-78kg and use a small in Castelli(Podio, Team, Alpha and Prefetto - medium in our club 4.1 Aero jersey), Rapha(Pro team softshell) and DHB(Aeron Polartec alpha jacket) upper wear.
    Medium in all lowers, rapha pro team shorts and tights, dhb classic tights, dhb aeron shorts, Castelli team and aero shorts, soprasso tights La passione shorts. Endura fs260 bib shorts need to be a small though, they are massive!
  • I'm a small in both and DHB are a bit less snug than Castelli, but don't feel a whole size different. Though the fit can vary from line to line e.g. ASVs (race fit) are tighter than Classics (performance fit).

    As its Wiggle, surely the answer is to get a small and medium and send one back? OK so now you need to use Asda returns to get free returns now, but if you've got an Asda near you, its the easiest way to be sure.
  • medium Castelli is likely to be small in DHB

    Can confirm this is the case as that's what I buy in each.

    My old DHB roubaix bib tights were supremely warm but both ankle zips gave up the ghost. Now replaced by some Sorpassos which seem to be as warm at low temps, but magically don't overheat as the temperature climbs.

    Still thinking of turning the DHBs into some 3/4s...

    I've got some DHBs without a pad, as I like to wear shorts underneath this time of year for an extra layer. I have noticed that now they all come with a pad. I'm in the market for a new pair, any recommendations for bib tights without a pad?
