The following is a very rough guide to the sizes of trials clothing, helmets and boots. Please be aware that these sizes are NOT exact as all manufacturers have slightly differing sizes.
Should you buy something which doesn’t fit we are happy to exchange any item - as long as the item is unused and returned to us in its original packaging. However, please be aware that you are responsible for paying the cost of return postage and there will be a further delivery charge for posting the new item out.
Most trials boots are manufactured in Europe and, as such, are manufactured to a European size. As most of us will buy boots and shoes to UK sizes, we have shown the nearest UK size (along with the European version) to the boot itself.
We always recommend that you buy trials boots one size larger than you would normally buy a pair of shoes – two sizes larger if you want to wear a thick pair of socks with them. If buying junior boots, buy two sizes larger.
|Boots - UK Size||European Size||USA Size|
Once again, manufacturer’s sizes vary slightly, but as a rough guide, the following sizes can be used:
|Double Extra Small (XXS)||29-32||74-81|
|Extra Small (XS)||32-35||81-89|
|Extra Large (XL)||44-47||111-119|
|Double Extra Large (XXL)||47-50||119-127|
|Triple Extra Large (XXXL)||50-53||127-135|
As with shirts and boots, manufacturer’s sizes vary slightly when it comes to trials pants. Pants made with Lycra are designed to be snug fitting as well as shorter than ‘normal’ trousers (when trials riding you don’t want the bottom of the leg to be rolling up inside your boot). So, consider this when buying. If you don’t want your trials pants to be ‘tight’ you may want to buy a size larger than you normally would.
|Double Extra Small (XXS)||26||66|
|Extra Small (XS)||28||71|
|Extra Large (XL)||36||91|
|Double Extra Large (XXL)||38||96|
|Triple Extra Large (XXXL)||40||101|
Everyone’s head is a completely different shape; there is no standard when it comes to heads. Accordingly, each manufacturer builds their helmets slightly differently to each other.
A helmet is a piece of safety equipment so, when it comes to measuring the circumference of your head, be as accurate as possible. Make sure you measure above the eyebrows and then around the head over the point at the back of the skull. Take the largest measurement. Remember that a new helmet will act much like a pair of shoes and the padding inside will alter the more you wear it.
|Extra Large (XL)||24-24.5||61-62|
