galibier sizing

    i've never bought shorts online before, except for the boards kit; is galibier fairly standard sizing wise?

    i've always bought medium, am a medium in gist and the verge sizing in medium fits me but wouldn't want to be any more snug - so i assume M in galibier bib shorts is the way to go too?

    You’re in fairly safe hands I would say. Order two sizes and return one that doesn’t fit. They are super for returns etc. I know of one bib where they say clearly it’s “Italian race fit” so order up a size

    I have medium. 6'3", 73kg... bit snug for me. Wearable but if I was ordering again, I'd get large.

    The size guide they give is pretty good. As above if they say Italian sizing or race fit then go up a size. Great for returns or swapping, I asked about swapping a pair of shorts for larger one and new pair was in the post straight away, before I’d even sourced envelope to send back original pair

    Very good on returns. 185cm 78kg and Large is perfect. I'd say they size accurately, not "Italian"

    i'm over 10cm shorter than you and maybe 5kg lighter (i hope!) so medium hopefully sounds like a safe enough bet.

    anyone have any opinions as to classique vs peloton vs energie vs regale? bear in mind that i don't usually spend more than three hours in the saddle at a tims

    Taller & heavier but wear large in both Verge & Galibier.

    Energie shorts are my go to in the range though size large has been stocked out for a while now.

    cheers, i ordered the equipe aero, mainly because they have them on sale in medium (but not large) with approx €15 off.

  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,406 Mod ✭✭✭✭ magicbastarder

    was very happy with these so ordered a second pair - good service, i placed the order on tuesday night and the postman just dropped them off. and they'd thrown a snood in for free.

    The sizings cited on the website are accurate

    you won’t regret ordering from galibier . The clothing is quality and the customer service is excellent. Delivery is fast too

    My third order this year from Galibier is sitting at home at the moment.

    There better be a bloody free pair of socks or something in this one
