Less fabric, more comfort.

We won’t judge you for not wearing bibs — after all, mountain bike rides, longer casual rides, and really hot days all call for a less-serious approach, and that’s exactly where Castelli’s Velocissimo Due Shorts come in. They’re every bit the short that you expect from Castelli: Power Lycra, the KISS3 chamois, and a multi-panel construction.

The KISS3 is a great go-to chamois, especially for rides under a couple hours. It’s thin but supportive, and just sort of disappears underneath you while still reducing chafing. The Velocissimos are finished off with the Giro3 integrated leg grippers that are knit directly into the shorts’ fabric. You won’t notice them, except that your shorts will stay in place, and not bunch up, even if you’re wearing them as a base short under baggies.

  • KISS3 chamois
  • Affinity Power Lycra construction
  • Giro3 grippers

Crash tested!

We had some NASCAR action in a pace line several weeks ago. Everyone tried to steer out of it. I hit the pavement and got serious road rash in all the usual places. The most amazing thing: No tear, no big burn hole. Maybe I was just lucky, or maybe the fabric panel on the outside of the hip is designed to be a skid pad. Whatever, the shorts came out looking a lot better than the crash dummy.

Great shorts

No break in period required. Great shorts for any ride even races. The Kiss3 is comfortable and the stitching is well done. The seamless construction is perfect and lycra fit forms well to your body. Warm or cool weather, these short did well.

Nice fit, great feeling

Everything you expect from Castelli. Nice fit, great feeling, good looking. As with all Castelli gear, buy one size larger than normal.
I personally like the relative thinness of the Kiss3 chamois. If you want, or need, a wad of padding, consider a different option.
