There are no logos to peel off, and everything is stitched down securely. This short gives you every reason to step up to Castelli. - KISS Air2 seat pad for all-day comfort - Pro Dry matte Lycra for good compression and moisture management - 8-panel construction for perfect fit - Rear reflective panels on lower leg - GIRO3 engineered flat leg band - Mesh bib straps for comfort and breathability - 15°-35°C / 59°-95°F - Weight: 175g

Castelli Free Aero Race 4 Bibshort Kit
$199.99
Meticulous Evolution The Free Aero Race 4 Bibshort is our top race short, which also means that it's insanely comfortable even if you never pin on a number. The original Free Aero Race Bibshort was first introduced over a decade ago and has logged literally millions of kilometers under the backsides of our sponsored pro riders and has been the best-selling short both in the Castelli retail collection and in our Servizio Corse custom program. Over this time the short has undergone numerous updates and improvements in the never-ending quest to create the best short we can make. While the basic concept of a minimalist workhorse pro-level comfortable race short remains, every single fabric, component, stitch and construction method has been updated and improved over time. The fourth major generation of the short features the updated Progetto X2 Air Seamless seat pad. This pad separates a soft, stretchy skin care layer that moves with your body from a generously padded cushioning layer that replicates the form of your saddle. Eight-hour rides are no problem. Of course the fabrics are premium, made to our specifications by Italy's best fabric suppliers. The Forza fabric on the inner leg features 38% Lycra content for perfect fit, while the Vortex fabric on the side panels is dimpled for aerodynamics. And it's held in place by the latest iteration of our seamless flat Giro leg gripper. - Vortex dimpled fabric on legs for aero performance - Forza fabric on inner legs with 38% Lycra content for perfect fit - Stripe mesh engineered minimalist bib construction keeps you cool - Giro4 leg gripper elastic for better grip distributed over larger area - Doppio V construction in front for increased support and comfort - Flat-lock stitching - Progetto X2 Air Seamless seat pad - 15°-35°C / 59°-95°F - Weight: 172g
Castelli Free Protect Race Bibshort
$229.99
The Unlimited Tour de France Gravel Short This short was initially made specifically in response to a request from Chris Froome to help protect him through the first dangerous stages of the Tour de France. He wanted something to reduce road rash in case of a crash on those stages when everyone wants to be at the front and crashes are frequent. We went back to the old trick, familiar to track riders, of wearing two pairs of shorts, knowing that Lycra sliding on Lycra is the best way to prevent or reduce road rash on your hip. In this case we've used our Vortex fabric from the Free Bibshort on the outside, which we know is already extremely durable in everything from sliding across the pavement to dog bites (yes, really!). Then we added an internal layer of a stretch woven fabric reinforced with a ripstop grid made from Dyneema, the same miracle yarn used in rock climbing ropes, reinforcement in sails for the America's Cup, and in bulletproof vests. This will help prevent the inner layer from ripping in many situations. We put this dual-layer construction over the side panel, which gives generous coverage for the hip and thigh in the event of a crash. While originally created to help Tour de France riders survive the first few stages of the race better, this short may come in handy when you're riding on loose gravel or in your local criterium, or even if you just happen to fall off frequently and always slide on your hip like our favorite GCN presenter. Beyond the protective aspect of this short, we've constructed it using the components and construction from our Free Aero Race 4 Bibshort, our top race bibshort that also gives remarkable comfort. - Double-layer side panels for extra protection in the event of a fall - A special smooth layer of our Vortex fabric backed by a stretch woven fabric featuring a Dyneema ripstop grid - Forza fabric on inner legs with 38% Lycra content for perfect fit - Stripe mesh engineered minimalist bib construction to keep you cool - Giro4 leg gripper elastic for better grip distributed over larger area - Doppio V construction in front for increased support and comfort - Flat-lock stitching - Progetto X2 Air Seamless seat pad - 15°-32°C / 59°-90°F - Weight: 203g

Castelli Prima Short
$89.99
A Better Short Shorts are an obsession at Castelli. They're the most vital piece of clothing and one of the hardest to get right. Even though the Prima is our entry-level short, it shows that we won't compromise anything for comfort and performance. It starts with the women's-specific KISS Air2 seat pad. Just the name gives an idea of the process of constant improvement, which started with a soft KISS pad that was improved by making it more breathable (Air) and then improved again in the latest update to use the softest-ever top fabric (2). It's ready for your next big ride indoors or out. We've updated the fabric to the new Pro Dry Soft, which has a smooth matte finish that feels cool on the skin while being very supportive and quick to dry. We wanted this short to be just right for many years to come, so little details like the reflective patches are stitched in instead of being glued on, and the GIRO3 elastic has the grip woven right into the fabric. This attention to detail — go ahead and call it an obsession — is why Castelli's entry-level short is just a better short. - KISS Air2 seat pad for all-day comfort - Pro Dry Soft matte Lycra is sleek looking and ultra-breathable - Anatomic construction for perfect fit - Rear reflective panels - GIRO3 engineered flat leg band - 15°-35°C / 59°-95°F - Weight: 160g
Castelli Sorpasso 2 Bibtight
$134.99 - $179.99 $179.99 Up to 25% Off
The Sorpasso Bibtight is our best winter tight because of its exceptionally wide comfort range and the amazing fit. And both of these features come from the combination of our Thermoflex Core2 fabric and our standard fleecy Themoflex. The Core2 fabric is made with a hollow-core polyester yarn on the inside and a nylon outer face, which together provide excellent insulation for cold temperatures along with better wicking to keep you comfortable when it’s not so cold. This fabric offers some wind protection but is somewhat limited in stretch, and that’s where the extremely stretchy Thermoflex fabric comes in. The overall effect is a tight that offers optimal compression and seems to just move with you. - Our best-fitting tight for a wide range of cool to cold conditions  - Thermoflex Core2 front and knees for extra warmth  - Thermoflex over thighs and back of legs for extra stretch  - Castelli shadow wordmark in colored leg band  - 3D support band at lower back and flat bib straps for extra comfort  - Progetto X2 Air seat pad for long-distance rides  - YKK Camlock zippered ankle openings with Giro3 elastic and reflective zip cover
Castelli Unlimited Bibshort
$139.99
Don't Limit Yourself We made this short to meet Castelli's high standards for comfort and performance in a cycling short while adding a few extra features that come in handy for riding on any surface. You'll find our normal exceptional fit as well as the KISS Air2 seat pad, which provides generous anatomically placed padding with an exceptionally soft top layer. What makes this short special is the extremely durable Unlimited Lycra fabric. It has higher abrasion resistance and tear resistance while not compromising on stretch, moisture management or comfort. In addition, we use double-layer side panels for the old track rider's trick of fabric-sliding-on-fabric should you fall. This short isn't really meant to be indestructible, but it significantly increases the chances that sliding out on gravel will mean you need to just brush yourself off rather than having to buy a new pair of shorts. That second layer on the side panel also makes for convenient side pockets, with a flap over the top to prevent the contents from falling out. For added convenience while riding on and off road, you have two mesh pockets on the lower back that compress gear next to your body to keep it from bouncing around. This short adds durability and storage without compromising comfort — for unlimited amounts of fun. - Made for fast riding on unlimited terrain - 200 g/m2 nylon/Lycra fabric with best-in-class abrasion and tear resistance - 2 mesh rear pockets built into mesh bib straps - Double-layer side panels reduce abrasion if you fall, while also creating 2 useful side pockets - Raw-cut leg ending with vertical silicone grip strips to hold leg in place - KISS Air2 seat pad for long-distance comfort - 15°-32°C / 59°-90°F - Weight: 200g
