Bontrager fit and sizing

Cycling apparel is made for performance, comfort, and style—but it needs to fit well to work well. Not all apparel fits the same, so check out the sizing guides below to see how Bontrager measures up. Here's everything you need to know to find the perfect size and cut for the way you ride.

Men's apparel sizing

Bontrager garment fit is based on an athletic build, and follows true sizing. Reference the apparel size chart to identify your size, then see the item's fit profile to understand how the silhouette will move with your body.

Men's apparel

Measurements on the sizing chart reflect the actual measurements of the body’s circumference (not product’s measurements). Use a cloth measuring tape to measure your body. All measurements should be taken while standing up straight with feet shoulder width apart. For maximum accuracy, take measurements next to skin.

1CHEST
Measure around the fullest part of your chest under your armpits with your arms relaxed at sides. Keep the measuring tape parallel to the ground.
2WAIST
Measure around the natural waist, which falls at the natural curve of the body--the indentation between the hips and the ribcage. The measuring tape should be close to the body but not snug.
3HIPS
Wrap measuring tape around the fullest part of the hips and buttocks. Keep the measuring tape parallel to the ground.

Loose fit

Loose fit allows for freedom of non-restrictive movement and casual style

Accessories

When it comes to cycling gear, the small stuff holds a lot of power. Think about it: a little discomfort from your gloves, socks, or other accessories can have a huge impact on your mood and the quality of your ride. Bontrager always designs for comfort, but getting the right size is important. Here's how to choose Bontrager accessories that will fit and feel great on every ride.

Gloves

A glove that fits properly will not constrict motion. Bontrager gloves are anatomically designed for a no-bunch fit. To find your appropriate size, measure the circumference of your hand using a cloth tape measure or a piece of string and a ruler. Use the chart below to determine the proper glove size based on your measurement.

Determining your Bontrager shoe size

Don't have a Brannock device at home? Not to worry, follow the instructions below for at-home sizing or stop by your local Trek retailer to be properly measured.

Step 1

To measure your feet, start by wearing socks you typically ride in and lay a blank piece of paper on a hard, smooth surface.

Step 2

While standing, distribute weight evenly and have someone trace each foot with a pencil taking extra care around the toes and heal areas.

Step 3

If you are working alone, sit down on a chair and lean forward to shift more weight onto the foot you are going to trace.

Step 4

On your outline, measure the distance from the heel line to your longest toe line and cross-reference with our sizing chart above. If your feet are different lengths, use the longer of the two measurements.
