Just had a chat with Michael via their online chat system. Very helpful so will go with the Small in slim fit. Now to work out the shorts! For reference of others I'm 5' 10" 118lbs

Prend,
Thanks for all of this. It looks great.
(well, except for us temporarily crashing the server :) )

Did you get a skinsuit sample, to compare real sizes?

The matching between the height/weight vs. waist/chest combos seem a tiny bit odd for a fit cyclist. Not sure if others see this too. But I'm at the top of L for h/w but middle of M for w/c.

I posed a quick question to Jakroo, as I thought this may impact others as well, and they had a simple reply...

Prioritize the skinsuit fit first on height (as arm and torso lengths are key for a good skinsuit fit) then weight. As for the waist/chest numbers, since we are getting the PRO line the fabric has a strong compression fit and should still fit snugly even if you are a bit smaller/thinner in the w/c numbers.

I hope this is clear and helpful to others too.
-Cory

I might have missed it but how are they going to ship the packages overseas? I would prefer with normal post, as with a courier (FedEx, ups) we are going to get caught in customs and that would really drive the price up by a lot.

It will tell you astranoc if you go into the basket/checkout and select your country. Mine says FedEx Intl Priority

@astranoc - It's FedEx Intl for everyone, regardless of location.

@PSM - Sorry. :( November 1st delivery. Is that still riding weather in Stockholm?
But at least you might get to wear it in the Spring! Or on the Trainer!

@gt5504b - I did not get the skinsuit sample, and thanks for helping others figure out sizing!

So I took a look at that Assos ss.13 Jersey, that's some pretty sweet stuff, nice tech-fabrics!
As for stretch comparison, I would say that the front & back panels of Jakroo have a similar amount of stretch to the front panel of the Assos ss.13 jersey, maybe just a weeee weeee small bit less stretch, but that would be like ".5 mm less stretch" which is pretty small. Definitely not the same fabric though.

Hope that helped!

Cuff widths on bib sizing chart look rather big - they are almost as big as waist width for the same size. On my M DeSoto bibs cuff is 19,5 cm (7,7") wide and here even XXS cuffs are significantly wider.
Prendrefeu, did you have a chance to check the measurement on the sample? I wanted to order 2 sets, but now I'm thinking if I should go with just jerseys. Bibs from last order turned out to be much smaller then what chart said and I ended up just dumping them in trash, so I'd really want to not do the same this time.
