Size Guide


 

Use the most important body measurements to make selecting your correct size easy. The models measurements are also provided on all product pages to assist further.

If you have size or fit questions before ordering, email us & we will answer quickly - info@rkit.cc. Provide your measurements & photos for size advice.

To ensure the best fit use the two largest body measurements. They are CHEST for tops and HIPS-LOW for bottoms. The common waist measurement is usually the smallest torso measurement for road cyclists so has the least affect on fit.

Use the important measurements shown in blue. Simply measure the circumference of your CHEST and HIPS-LOW as shown on the diagram, then compare to the size chart. These two measurements will be similar for most road cyclists. Waist measurements are also provided for your use.

We use an international sizing standard developed by a recognised apparel sizing specialist. With this information the sizes were developed with three leading cycling apparel designers. All patterns were designed & developed together to ensure consistent fit across all styles.

Designed for a close to skin fit & made with the highest quality four-way stretch performance fabrics. All fabrics undergo a special pre-shrinking process to prevent shrinkage after washing. The fabrics will stretch slightly after use & this is normal.
