I just got a pair of Super Total Comfort bibs delivered. I was unable to try them anywhere so I tried some Bodyfit Classic bibs. The Bodyfit ones were great. Good long leg, good cut, but I wasn't keen on the chamois. Relatively, the S.T.C.s have super short legs and they're really tight (same size).

Anyone know how any other models in the Sportful range compare?

I have a pair of "Sportful Limited Edition BodyFit Pro Bib Shorts Medium Black/Blue/Yellow" and they fit me pretty snugly. I use M in Assos usually. 190 cm / 77 kgs.

What's your inseam? I'm 189 and 78Kg with a 94cm inseam (book under the crotch down to floor). And smaller on the 'Super's would crush the boys.

How are the legs on the Bodyfit Pro?

94 inseam :-) Legs are just a tad shorter than what I'm used to, and a little tighter around the thighs, but I find that I like it.

I have the Total Comfort (size S), and I find the legs are too long. Is everyone finding the Super to have a shorter insesm? And same with bodyfit pro?

Always difficult to describe sizing! I have Sportful Limited Edition BodyFit Pro too and wear a Large at 175cm/ 78kg. I find they are probably a touch shorter (only a fraction) and a touch less tight around the hips (again only a fraction) than Castelli Free Aero's. They are definitley with the trend of longer shorts like most nowadays and nowhere near as short as the pictures in the marketing material make out (they look almost mid thigh in the pic with the veiny guy!). No comparison to other Sportful shorts I'm afraid, but the Limited Edition BodyFit Pro are really great value and great shorts IMO Worth a try on Wiggle or wherever they are cheapest

STCs are a little shorter and would feel 'tighter' initially when you put them on cos the material is a bit more compressive than the BodyFits, shouldn't be uncomfortably so though...
Most of the shorts should run to the same sizes, the fit of them might change slightly depending on materials/pad etc.

The BodyFit Pro is slightly shorter than the Classic because the legband is different, also the TC Pro pad has more volume than the BodyFit so will seat you slightly higher up the short too.

RE: 'The veiny guy' - That's Roman Kreuziger who is pretty tall (and leggy!) and wearing a size M in those photos, his team shorts have to be made slightly longer than standard...

Thanks. AKASTANA. :)

Do the Tour Max shorts have the same leg length as the BodyFit Classic?

I also got a reply from the UK distributor who suggested that the R&D shorts have the TC straps and a slightly longer leg. I may try a pair of those if that's the case.

My Tour Max bibs arrived on Tuesday, and a pair of R&D bibs arrived today. First impressions are good.

The Tour Max are a bit shorter than the Bodyfit, but they're only for commuting so that's not a problem. The TC-Pro pad feels much nicer [to me] than the Bodyfit one.

The pad is also in the R&D shorts, which even on my gangly pins have a really good leg length to them. Will hopefully get a chance to try them out this weekend.

Thanks Matt. It seems we are after opposite fits... I want shorter leg length. So far, the Desoto are the closest I can find to what I like.

I'm 6'3" with long legs (about a 34 inch / 88 cm ) inseam. The NoRain Fiandre short is great for me. I find the Bodyfit Pro too short in the leg.

I prefer a long-legged short. In Assos I bought the FI 5 Mille Large with long leg.
