This garment is designed to meet our broadest demographic but still remain suitably racey catering to cyclists from leisure riders and charities to weekend warriors, clubs and sponsorred athletes.
Those with less confidence or who prefer a little more room sometimes choose to size up for a more relaxed look whilst the lean guys will often size down.
It is also sometimes preferred over the lady specific pattern by the less competitive ladies due to the fact that it has more length than the female specific pattern. If this is the case, ladies must however size down as measurements are male specific. MED ladies are order SML, SML ladies are to order XS etc.
