Chapeau! Size Guide

As a UK company, Chapeau's sizing is fairly true to UK body shapes. It is cut for road riding, though, so bear in mind that if you like your cycling kit to be less than figure hugging you should choose a size up.

If you are still unsure, feel free to contact us.

        Fitting Advice for Chapeau bibs - To make sure your bibs are right for you, you want them to fit tighter rather than looser. This will help the pad stay in the correct position when pedalling and allow the 'compression' qualities of the fabric to work properly.

        Chapeau suggest you compare these flat measurements to a comparable piece of kit that you know fits you well, and select your size on that basis.
