Motorcycle clothing sizing
Opublikowane przez Agnieszka Babecka

Motorcycle clothing sizing can vary depending on the brand, model, and cut. That's why it's a good idea to measure your body carefully before buying and compare the results with the manufacturer's size chart. Many manufacturers offer detailed measurement instructions to help you choose the right size.

It is also important to remember that motorcycle clothing should fit snugly to the body, but must not restrict movement or restrict freedom. It should also be comfortable and not cause chafing or discomfort while riding. Well-fitting clothing guarantees greater safety. Clothing that is too loose may cause it to turn and move the protectors in the event of a fall.

REMEMBER!

Protectors in motorcycle clothing must fit correctly in any position – both sitting and standing.

It's also worth remembering that different models of clothing can have different fits – for example, racing suits tend to be tighter than hiking jackets. Therefore, before buying, it is worth reading the product description and possibly using the option of trying it on or returning it to be sure that the size you choose will be the right one.


  1. Height – measured from the feet to the top of the head. Height is an important factor, as the suit must fit snugly over the length of the body for optimal protection and comfort.
  2. Chest circumference – measured at the height of the sternum, at the widest area of the chest. This is an important dimension for the fit of the suit in the chest and shoulder area.
  3. Waist circumference – measured at the narrowest point just above the navel. This dimension is important for the fit of the suit in the waist and belly area.
  4. Hip circumference – measured at the widest point of the pelvis. This is an important dimension for the fit of the suit in the hip and buttock area.
  5. Arm length – measured from the end of the shoulder to the end of the elbow. This dimension is important for the fit of the suit in the shoulder and arm area.
  6. Leg length – measured from the crotch to the ankle. This dimension is important for the fit of the suit in the leg and knee area.

 

Thus, it can be seen that these sizes are prepared on the basis of general statistics and in the case of having a non-standard size, it can be very difficult, and sometimes even impossible, to adjust the suit.

In this case, we are here to help, i.e. to tailor the suit. What is very important, sometimes customers ask to reduce/increase the suit "by size" – which unfortunately is not a good solution. It is often the case that the garment largely fits correctly and, for example, is only too big/small at the chest or waist, then it is enough to change only this size, which will also reduce the costs of alteration. When a customer asks for a "size change" it is as if they were asking for it to be sewn anew, because each element in this case would have to be ripped apart and reduced/increased by a few centrimeters.

For example, in the Dainese suit, the sizing starts at 42 and ends at 60. The difference in measurements by height jumps from size to size by 3 cm, neck circumference by 1 cm, and waist circumference by 4 cm. It therefore assumes that the increase goes hand in hand with the enlargement of the circuits. As you can guess, a tall and slender person and an adequately shorter person with larger circumferences has quite a challenge to find the perfect solution for themselves.

Motorcycle suit sizing is based on measurements of key areas of the body that are important for fitting the suit to the rider's figure. Depending on the manufacturer, these measurements may vary slightly, but usually include the following dimensions:
