I tried some Assos with the long leg length and they are a good fit. But they are crazy expensive.

Have you tried Endura? The FS260 Pro SL comes in a long length. I tried some of these, and they really do have long legs. Not as long as my Castelli Nanoflex thermal shorts, but definitely won't end up looking like Tommy V. :D


Cheers MattS - good pointer :beerchug:

Raptors used on a couple of rides so far.
Material seems delicate - hope it lasts up to my use
Comfy insert - not too bulky.
Sizing is true to the chart and XL is the one for me
Legs are LONG !

I'm 6'6" 99kg and wear the Endura Pro Sl long length in xxl which fit nice and long.

I bought a pair of these last week and these have the same leg length as the Enduras, but did require to size up to 3xl.

I bought myself a pair of the DHB ASV Race bibs this week to use for training. I'm super impressed. The fit and fabrics are excellent, the legs are long, and the price is less than half that of most brands regular shorts, let alone their top-end ones.

189cm. 76kg. Size L.

With 3 months of use the Pactimos are comfortable and hardwearing - and have become my preferred bib.
Nice and long too :)
Not so for the Enduras - after even short rides they chafe/rub/irritate and they go to the back of the cupboard :(
