Product InfoHow Do I find My Size
Sizes vary with each product and with each manufacturer. A size medium wetsuit will be different across the various wetsuit brands. A size 56cm road bike will have a different geometry across the different bike brands.
There are manufacturers size guides on each product page to ensure that you make the correct size decision for the product you are wanting to buy. Alternatively you can call or email the TRI UK stores direct for expert help and advise on sizing to ensure you order the correct sized product.
Bike Sizing: All bike brands have their own way of sizing their bikes. Sizing also differs depending on the style of bike and the geometry of the bike. For example, a 56cm Brand A road bike may fit you, but a 56cm Brand B road bike may well be smaller or larger – this is due to measurements each brand uses and the geometry each brand uses. Therefore it is essential that you use the sizing charts for the brand and model you are interested. In addition you can email or call TRI UK direct and talk to one of our Bike Specialists who will be able to advise you and help you with your sizing decision.
Wetsuit Sizing: Each wetsuit brand uses their own sizing charts. Therefore it is imperative that you consult the sizing chart for the brand and model that you are interested in buying. Please note that if you are a size medium in jumpers or jackets this does not mean you are a size medium in a wetsuit, as a wetsuit needs to fit you in a totally different way to a jacket or a jumper. It is also vitally important that you take some time to measure and weigh yourself. All wetsuit manufacturers sizing chart are correct for their brands. If you use your correct measurements then the wetsuit size you have chosen will definitely fit you. The only time that sizing issues occur is if you have not used correct measurements. Those extra 5kgs you have not included when you used your ‘guestimated weight’ will make a difference to the wetsuit fitting correctly.
When your wetsuit arrives and you unpack it you will quite possibly panic and think it looks far too small for you. If you have used your correct measurements then this will not be the case. If you have used your correct measurements then the wetsuit will fit you. Click here to understand how your new wetsuit should fit and feel.
Helmet Sizing: Different helmet brands use different measurements for their sizing. Please refer to the manufacturer’s sizing chart for the brand and model you are interested in. Many brands offer a ‘One Size’ system where the helmet fits all head sizes and the sizing is adjusted by an internal cage system. When fitting your helmet straps you need to ensure that you helmet is horizontal on your head – just slightly above you eyebrow levels. Do not wear your helmet on the back of your head with your forehead exposed. To keep the helmet nice and horizontal you need to adjust the straps so the side straps are vertical and pull down onto your jaw bone and the rear/side strap also pulls across/down onto your jaw bone. This will ensure your helmet stays horizontal.
Cycle Shoe sizing: Cycle shoes fit and feel different to most other shoes we wear. Each brand uses its own sizing chart. Cycling shoes need to fit snugly to ensure the shoe does not pull off your foot when you unclip your pedals. The stiff sole of cycling shoes also makes the shoes feel very different to other shoes we wear. The correct fit is one that is snug and secure – but not so tight that it hurts your feet and toes.
