Castelli sizing is a mess and isn't consistent.

i wear S in the Cento S7 bibs while M in the Capionissimo or race cut. feel is about the same.


Almost correct.

There are two fits:

Race Fit - Equipe and Campionissimo product
Comfort Fit - Mille and Cento product

Rich at ASSOS.


yes. see how confusing it is? my Cento is S. my Campionissimo is M and race cut being tighter. i have never tried Mille nor Equipe.

Hello.

I have Castelli Endurance size L.
But it's too little for me. The straps are short, so they stretch and squeeze my gentleman's junk.
My height is 183cm, weight 68kg. I'm tall and thin.
Questions:
1. What size will suit me from Assos (model Equipe s7)?
2. The straps of Assos will be longer in size M than in Castelli size L?

Nowhere nearby you can try the ASSOS? I am guessing size m, but you a very light for your height.

Unfortunately, in my city there are no shops nearby with clothes of Assos.
I will order, there is no other way. But I think, it will be possible to return, if it does not fit in size.
So I want to ask here before buying.

Yes, I am very light and tall. It is important for me that the straps of Assos do not cause a problem, as with Castelli. Straps Castelli in size of L is too short for me ...
