Curious to learn what brands out there might have a longer leg length bib short. I think I remember Rapha doing something but interested in learning who else out there does it too. Being over 2m/6’6” does have some disadvantages.

Endura Pro SL have a long leg length option.
MAAP bibs have longish legs by default

Isadore are generally longer as are La Passione. Isolés makes a longer option as well.

Gobik if you want the extra long.
Giordana is longish.

Both longer than Rapha long version.
Both pretty good material and pads, Giordana perhaps a tad better for my bum.

I rate the endura pro sl, you can also choose pad width which is decent and I've found them plenty comfortable for 200+km rides

I have both and MAAP are slightly longer, but pad is a bit too thick. The Enduras are a bit more comfy in this respect.
MAAP material feels thicker though

I'm 190cm with saddle to BB ctr of 800mm for ref

I really like the Endura SL Pro with narrow pad too but, I notice the leg gripper section tends to get transparent sections rather quickly.
Even though I only hand wash line dry (although this was their previous model. I bought four pairs & am on the last one now.

Giordana is not long, they are very short for me. 184/60kg My Endura long legs are like 5cm longer.

For me the only bibs that are long enough are the Endura Pro SL long leg. (I haven’t tried the rapha ones but there are reports they flap around and arent tight enough )

Give a try to Gobik.

Hi Micky
I recently tried a Gobik Pacer LS Jersey & like it so want to also try their bibs

Have you tried which model? I am looking at Absolute & Limited
Both have same pad but i guess limited is slightly shorter?

Which have you tried & it seems you like it overall yes?

Thanks
