I'm 5'6", 37" chest and 31" leg.
What size would be the best fit, small?
No, go at least 2 sizes up from your usual size.
I am 175cm tall, about 75 kg. Chest 98cm, waist 84cm, hips 92cm, inner thigh to knee 34cm.
In this brand, I need an XL (yes, XL) in the jersey for the "race fit". For the slightly looser "comfort fit", a size L is good.
For the nicks, an XL is a good fit, with the L being a tighter, almost compression feel.
Leg length on the nicks is good in both sizes, with minimal creep up into that "hot pants" look.
Pad seems stiff initially, but firm and should be good for longer rides.
