I hate jerseys that creep up or stretch too much. Give me your best recommendations. No “endurance fit” bullsh** pls.

That’s like saddles… it depends on your body… and how a brand cut fit with your body… and how they size, so there is no silver bullet to answer this question

A brand like Virklon allows you to select 3 body shapes and 3 torso length.

Virklon might be the perfect brand for me, how have I never heard of them. They also do long leg bibs. Thanks C68!

They offer products with one the 3 fits, not each product with the 3 fits and unless I miss something not with 3 lengths to choose from. That make them offering 9 options rather than 3.

I discovered them on WW but they are indeed not very known probably cause they are almost only doing custom designs. They have many nice options beyond the fit, you can clip the bib to the jersey for example and their bibs can come with 3 different pads, including elastic interface top of the line with the ultra high density foam (200g/m2).

I just placed a second order with a long bib that matches my winter jacket

The new non-Castelli CHPT3 kit in size small fits me very nicely at 64kg / 177cm (with a long torso)

Ah yes that is true
I didn't realize you were saying virklon offers the options in each jersey

I'm lucky I fit Castelli/Gobik/Endura quite well :wink:
