Castelli Vizio Tre Women's Shorts $119.95
An updated classic.
In between Castelli's comfort-focused Gisele and its race-optimized Body Paint, falls the Vizio Tre Women's Shorts. Essentially, Castelli design the Vizio Tre to balance comfort and efficiency with support and fit. All the while they're loaded with enough Castelli tech to confidently see you through any competition.
And, due to a recent refresh, the Vizio Tre provides even more ride enhancements than prior iterations, like the stretchy Affinity Lycra composition and the KISS3 Donna chamois. Starting at the bulk of the construction, the new, ultra-soft 210g Lycra of the Vizio Tre features enhanced moisture management properties that quickly draw perspiration away from the skin. And not only does this keep you cool and dry, but it also prevents the chafing and rashes that typically result from motion-induced friction.
As a result, Castelli promotes the Vizio as the ideal leg-wear for summer conditions ranging from 60 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit. This builds on the Vizio's already stellar multi-panel cut, super-wide waistband, and GIRO3 leg grippers that discreetly provide the comfort and support to the leg muscles needed for combating fatigue. However, while the aforementioned would justify a 'job well done high five' for most designers, Castelli knows that shorts are nothing without the addition of a quality chamois. Rightfully, Castelli's KISS3 Donna completes the Vizio's cycling credibility.
The KISS3 Donna chamois' two-layer, multi-density foam is molded for functional, anatomic support and outstanding comfort. It features a micromesh, elastic surface for an appropriately cooling airflow, and it's also been treated to destroy harmful bacteria. Tying everything together is double-needle stitching that ensures that the insert's surface rests softly against the skin.
The Castelli Vizio Tre Women's Shorts are available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large and in the colors Anthracite/white, Black, and Black/white.

I could ride forever

These are by far the best shorts I own. I like them so much that not only did I buy two pair, I paid full price...now that says a lot! The fit is perfect, very comfortable and everything stays in place. I would prefer a shorter inseam but just my personal preference - I'll take comfort over length any day. Great shorts

I currently have a M in the Vizio Due and ordered a M in the Vizio Tre, but it seems that the new M is the size of a S. Am I the only one with this problem, or did I receive a mismarked pair? I really don't want to order a L, but I will if the shorts are running smaller than they used to because they are so awesome! Thanks for any help...
Castelli runs pretty race aggressive, so I could understand your confusion with sizing. But don't take it too much to heart. I'm Medium in most things, but certainly not with Castelli.
My friend has these and she wears a medium in Castelli (5 foot 6, 135 lb, 28 inch waist) and these shorts fit true to size for her.
I, however, am 5'4/5'5, 150 and I wear a large in this. 30 waist, but big hips and muscular quads.
I believe that you if you are a med in the Due but feel as though they are a little small you might want to consider sizing up. But if you feel comfortable enough in them, a med will work.
I hope this is helpful.
If you have anymore questions, please contact me anytime. I'm happy to help.

I have also found the sizing to be small... I am usually a small, sometimes even x-small, and I couldn't even get these over my hips in a size small. I am 26"waist, 33"hip
disappointed in the fit
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I love my Castelli Century shorts but the rise in the front is dramatically different from my other Castelli's. From the top of the chamois in the front, this short is 4" to the waist band. My favorite pairs measure 6" in the front. these are just too low waisted for me. Otherwise they seem very nice, just not for me.
My favorite shorts

These are my absolute favorite pair of shorts. The material is incredibly comfortable and provides just the right amount of compression. The waist band is perfect and keeps the shorts in place without the slightest amount of digging in. And the Giro3 leg grippers are brilliant. I also find the Kiss3 chamois to be more comfortable than the ProgettoX2 Air used in the Principessa short (which are more expensive). I love these so much I bought a pair for my Mom for her birthday and she adores them just as much as I do. Definitely grab a pair, they'll be your favorite too! I'm 5'6" and 135lbs and the medium fits perfectly.
