Size and Product FAQ
How do Solana, Rincon, Diablo, Soledad, and Malibu jerseys fit?
If you scroll down below these FAQ, you’ll find details on all our jerseys, as well as our bibs and vests.
What do your T1, T2, and T3 thermal designations mean?
Our thermal rating system of T1, T2, and T3 designates the level of insulation and warmth offered based on the fabric. T1 is the lightest weight thermal, while T3 offers our warmest option for the chilliest days.
What’s the difference between Palomar and Gibraltar vests?
The Gibraltar vest is a lightweight, slim-fitting vest with no pockets that breathes well and packs up tightly to fit in a jersey pocket. The Palomar vest is a heavier fabric designed for a greater range of climates. It includes pockets and has a slightly roomier fit.
How should I choose a size for a vest or jacket?
We recommend you choose a vest or jacket size that corresponds to your jersey size.
How should I choose sizes for arm, leg, and knee warmers?
As these items are unisex, men are advised to choose the same size as the jersey they wear, while women are advised to choose one size smaller than their jersey size.
If I’m between sizes, should I size up or down?
Our products are specifically designed to fit best in ride position and for performance. If you find you are in between sizes on our chart, we recommend sizing up.
How should I choose my glove size?
As these items are unisex, men are advised to choose the same size as the jersey they wear, while women are advised to choose one size smaller than their jersey size. With that said, if you have particularly large or small hands, size up or down accordingly.
How should I choose my race suit size?
We recommend choosing a race suit in the same size as the jersey and bibs you wear. If these sizes are not the same, we’d advise you go with the race suit that matches the larger of the two sizes.
How should I wash my Eliel gear?
We recommend you hand wash or launder your Eliel cycling gear in cold water on a delicate cycle to prolong the life of your gear. Please always air dry your gear, as few things are harder on cycling kit than a trip through the dryer!
I love Amp Human lotion! Is it safe to use under my bibs?
We love Amp Human! But if not applied correctly, it can be hard on bib shorts and speed up the wear and tear of your gear. Fear not! There are several solutions to keep your bibs safe while reaping the benefits of this magic lotion. Amp Human recommends users either:
1. Apply PR lotion, wait 30 minutes (science states the bicarb is fully absorbed in this time), wash it off, then put your kit on and go ride without the worry of the lotion degrading your kit.
2. Apply PR Lotion from your bib tan line down to your ankles to avoid it being on your kit, as recent research is stating PR Lotion does have a systemic affect.
3. Wash your kit immediately after riding to clean off any residual lotion.
