Castelli Vizio Due Women's Shorts $0.00
Women's bodies are different from men's, so women-specific cycling clothing should be different, too. Although that seems self-evident, it seldom happens; however, the Castelli Vizio Due Women's Shorts have been designed with the specific needs of women in mind.
The Action micro fiber that Castelli uses must be considered one of the wonder fabrics of the world. Soft and stretchy, it is a Power Lycra that keeps you properly compressed without squeezing too tight. What makes this such a perfect fabric for cycling shorts, however, is the fact that in spite of its soft smoothness, it is incredibly durable and abrasion-resistant. You won't have to worry about overheating on hot days because the back quarter panels have been made from the Breath microfiber which has an open weave design that allows significant airflow. The partial Giro3 gripper at the leg hems will work to keep shorts in place on your leg. But the folks at Castelli have thoughtfully kept the leg opening from being so snug so as to create the dreaded "sausage effect." The four-needle flat-lock stitching is also a big reason why you'll find these shorts so comfortable, as is the plissé insert at the waist that makes it pliant and comfortable even when you are hunkered down in the drops.
Where you will really be thankful that Castelli has taken such trouble to make these the best shorts possible is in the insert they've used. The Kiss3 Donna-Specific Seat Pad is as comfortable and advanced as Castelli's top-of-the-line Progetto X2, but costs less. It made the seamless skin care layer from a super soft brushed microfiber to maximize the luxurious comfort and perfect fit. Since it is seamless, there will be no worries about unwanted chafing along boundary lines, while the flexibility of the material will help the pad move with you. It has also been given a bacteriostatic treatment to avoid saddle sores and infections. The interior of the insert has been designed to provide the ultimate in intelligent cushioning so that the maximum padding is in the ischial zone, tapering to a moderate thickness in the perineum and then narrowing still further at the perimeter of the pad.
The Castelli Vizio Due Women's Shorts will quickly become an essential part of every serious cyclist's wardrobe. They are available in Anthracite and come in sizes X-Small through X-Large.
