Very small fit

2

I usually wear medium Santini knicks as I have a 32 waist. However I can barely fit into a Large size, XL would have been a better choice. The make of the knicks are not too bad.

Very firm/thin chamois, thick lycra. Not good for training or long rides.

1

The size & fit was spot on (60kgs, 175cm, Size small), they are definitely of 'sturdy construction'. These bib shorts have an extremely thin and firm chamois. I was actually quite shocked when I open & first inspected. I have many pairs of Santini with the Gel GITevo chamois which for me is perfect for long rides or hard training intervals but the chamois on the Mago's is completely different and personally cannot provide the padding I need. After a session of hard intervals my sit bones were actually sore! Have never had this issue before from any other nicks (I have several pairs of very thin chamois, ultra light summer nicks - no issues). I found the Lycra, although advertised as light weight, actually thicker then the average bibs and quite course. You get what you pay for and while the service and delivery was prompt and hassle free - thank you PBK - unfortunately I cannot recommend these bibs to serious riders who may be looking for a cheap pair training bibs.

Great but not so great

2

Top marks for the fabric, stretch, chamois and quality is stitching is poor. Don't expect this from Santini.

Nice but very small fitting

4

I ordered a XL, I am 6', 190lbs and the XL are very tight. I will be able to wear them but they are a very small make. But sure to buy at least 1 size up from your regular sizing.

Go a size bigger

2

Santini does run smaller than most cycling wear. I'm from the U.S and I'm 6'4" 180lbs and I ordered an XL. The fit was very snug over the shoulder which was okay with me but the stitching and the thigh openings were very tight. I will definitely be returning this item as I don't like the fit, stitching, or the lack of tacky thigh holders in the bib shorts.

Beautifully made but so much smaller than expected

5

Like all Santini products, this is a beautiful garment but I wish I'd read the other reviews before I hit "buy". Like all Santini shorts and tops (and I should have known better by now) you should only buy these if you are built like a pro cyclist - i.e. like a stick. I normally buy L or XL depending on the size guides, went XXL for these and they are ridiculously smaller than many L-sized garments in my extensive collection of bibs. Very disappointed I can't wear them - will probably re-gift them as a Christmas present to another cyclist that normally wears M or L sized bib shorts.

Fantastic Bibs

5

These are fantastic quality, I forget they are on which is testament to how good they are! I’m 6 foot 2 and 92kg and XXL fit perfectly. These have become my favourite bibs for rides up to 200 km and are tremendous value. Originally bought 1 pair and have since bought another 2.

Sizing and seams

2

Very tight fit. Medium in this model is really small in others. Very tight fit. I’m 34inch waiste. 5’7”. 75kg. Should have gone for large however legs might be too long. So would not buy again. Also I noted the stitching near the pad. On other shorts it’s about 60mm away from pad. So it sits up further away from saddle. However the stitching on this item runs right next to pad. There for your sitting on the stitch as well as the pad. And this creates discomfort on buttocks.

Super tight

I was meant to return them and never got to it. I bought XL and it fits like a M. Waste of money. The construction is nice and they are nice bibs but the fitting is off by 2 sizes. I’m giving them to my wife.
