Trisuit and tri short inseam: how it is measured + models with longer inseams
Quote | Reply
Hi,
I have to order most of my tri stuff on the internet without prior fitting. As the postage is very expensive returns are not an issue either (postage here + return usually is close to the price of the item) I have to be very careful with measurements. Currently I have a cheaper range Zoot trisuit, I have used it for 2 seasons but I really do not like it. As I have some ugly varicose veins behind my knee I am looking for a pair of tri shorts that would be longer than usual, just above the knee would be OK. I have measured the inseam of my trisuit and inseams of various bike shorts I have to get an idea what I am looking for. My question is: how is the inseam measured - is it to the seam of the pad or to the highest point inside the leg (ie middle of the pad?). Biking shorts have a seam in the middle of the pad but my trisuit does not have one. Or maybe someone has come across a photo or image that shows the length of different inseams on real people? My current suit has a ca 6.29 inseam from the midpoint and 4.3 inch from the edge of the pad, would it be correct to assume that what I am currently using has a 6" inseam? (I use metric myself and I have to recalculate all the time...)

Also I am looking recommendations on shorts with longer inseam (8-10") and not very tight leg grippers - I know this has been discussed before but maybe there is something new around that can be bought from internet and delivered to Europe.

You should contact Emilio or Tracy DeSoto at DeSoto Sports. They could probably make some at whatever length you want. contact@desotosport.com

Thanks for the suggestion, I could contact them it but I am afraid that it will be too big hassle for them to ship it to the other end of the world. + quite expensive I assume. But if I can not find any other solution I might give it a try.

Just got a pair of the Pearl Izumi Elite tri shorts. They have an 8" inseams. Longest ones I was able to find. There are leg grippers, but not as tight as other brands.

Hi! What size trisuit do you wear? Our new Women's Forza trisuit actually has a longer inseam (depends on your size) but it can go up to 8 inches. Let me know and I would love to help!

I prefer long shorts as well. My Louis Garneau (elite lazer tek 2) tri suit has a 9.5" inseam I think.
