I just got a pair of these and it is so tough trying to figure out the sizing because all brands fit differently and the sizing is all over the map. I ordered this in 46.5. I have Giro Factors in 46.5 and Giro SLX in a 46.0, and Shimano R300's in 46.5. The Giros match the Shimano pair in sizing. The Fizik are a size bigger and significantly wider in the forefoot. I am toying with returning them for a 46.0 due to the big size.

It is not an awful fit and would allow for a larger sock, but my foot can move fore and aft making it a bad thing at times.

This bibshort has many issues with it. I have worn mine less than ten times and the light grey stitching is unraveling, and there are about 4 more threads hanging. They are not stretchy at all and that presents a sizing problem. The chamois is also not positioned correctly for me. I am 6'2" and 170 and wear a medium. The chamois is too far up my back so that it is not positioned under my sit bones.

Be careful with this one. I would size up on this one and the Free bibs. The Cronos from last year were true to size as are the Velocissimo and Wicked.

I can not believe the comments on sizing. I am 6'2" and 170-175 and I wear a medium and they are fine. They are a very nice pair of bibs. Straps are great and they are not restrictive at all (like the Endurance shorts). I can not say much on durability yet. The wicked shorts from last year gave me no problems with durability.

The white is not concealing at all :) I would not order the white.

I have had these for a short while, but they are the same as Castelli's Wicked shorts from last year. The fit is the same as the Wicked. I also have the white color. You can see through the white but the black is strategically placed so that you are not getting that much of an eyeful. You do not need to get these wet for their transparency to reveal itself :)

You have to be looking to see through and you would have to be fairly close. Unless you have to have white, I might opt for the grey. The red from last year is see through also, but not as much as the white.

The straps are very comfortable and the chamois is also nice.
