Here's what others have to say...

I prefer the Vizio Tre
4 5

After buying the Castelli Vizio Tre shorts, I snagged the Principessa thinking I would like them even more given top of the line ProgettoX2 Air chamois. I actually prefer the Vizio Tre, but kept the Principessa and do a fair amount of riding in them each week. The waist band is wide and comfortable and I do love the leg grippers. The shorts are well designed and look great, but the fit is a little odd. I find they are a bit bunchy and definitely fit tighter than the Vizio Tre. I'm 5'6" 135lbs and ordered a medium and a large. The large was huge, while the medium is quite snug in the hips. I also find the chamois to be a little too much. I wanted to love it, but I find there is just too much material. These are very good shorts, but if you are choosing between these and the Vizio Tre, grab those instead or perhaps go up to the Body Paint shorts which are more worth the extra money.

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.

This is a great no nonsense jersey. At least that's why I bought it. I was looking for something that would go with everything and that I could wear for most of the year, it was the perfect choice. However, I also get a ton of compliments on it. The fit is fantastic, the Softlex material is wonderfully comfortable and breathable even on hot days. I love the full zipper, which makes it even easier to regulate temperature in the Summer. I wore this on countless 3+ hour rides and just love it. I'm 5'6" 135lb and the medium is great for me. I went with black and am very happy with it and really like the tone on tone embossed logo on the shoulder. It's a great detail!

This is a great tank, and that seems to be hard to find when you want adequate rear pockets and straps that cover your sports bra. I love the Perla Bravette top, but if you wear a racer back bra, it completely ruins the well designed look of the top. So I went with the Giselle instead. I'm a big fan of Softlex as it's breathable and comfortable and find that the back pockets stay in place. It's not my favorite design of my Castelli tops (it's a little retro for my taste) but the Cyclamen color is pretty and I wore it all Summer. If they had more color selections I liked, I would have grabbed another.

I was really excited for this jersey to arrive, and I like it, but don't love it. I kept it to wear for commuting in cooler weather when I'm typically wearing a backpack and don't need pockets. It's not practical for long weekend rides as you can't fit more than a credit card and a bit of cash in the little zipper pocket. I do love the material, and it is perfect for temps in the mid to upper 50s, but it does ride up a bit. I'm 5'6" and 135lbs and went with the S/M. Typically I wear a medium in Castelli but this fits well and looks great.

These are fantastic little levers-- super strong, light, and look great! I love the neoprene sleeve to keep them together. They are definitely expensive, but they'll last forever and are way more convenient, so they're worth it!

When this jacket arrived I couldn't believe it would have much weather protection given the light weight, but it does a fantastic job keeping me warm and dry during chilly and rainy conditions. It also has great reflective properties, which is important in the cooler months when days are shorter. I ordered a medium in black, which is really more gray, and I love it. I'm 5'6" and 135lb and the medium fits perfectly. I'm so glad I ordered this jacket as it will be a wardrobe staple for years to come.

This cream works exactly as described. It's not sticky or greasy either. I'm very happy with it after a few long rides, and I would highly recommend it. I'm so glad someone was thinking of us gals!

So far I've been very impressed by this base layer. I've worn it in temperatures varying from 40 - 65 degrees and love it. It does a fantastic job regulating temperature and keeping you dry, plus it has an incredibly soft feel. It pairs great with my Transparente Long Sleeve Jersey, and just about any short sleeve jersey I have. Despite it being a bit pricey for a base layer, I love all things Castelli and figured it was worth a try. It's definitely worth it.

I'm not a fan of knee warmers, so I get a lot of use out of knickers during the Spring and Fall. I am happy with them for the price, but they aren't quite as perfect as the rest of my Castelli riding wardrobe. The wast band is much thinner than other Castelli shorts and knickers, which causes some digging in and on longer rides I do feel the need to pull them up a bit after hitting a few stop lights. The Softlex fabric is my favorite with Castelli jerseys, but I wish these were made out of the same Affinity Lycra as my Vizio Tre shorts for a bit more compression and support. I gave them 4 stars because I think they are great for the price, but would have given them 3 if I paid full price.

I love these tights so much I actually can't wait for cooler weather. I've worn them a few times on early morning rides when it's in the upper 40s and they were perfect. As with all Castelli clothing, the fit and design are impeccable. The "full coverage" style of these bibs is fantastic and very comfortable. The fleece inside of the Thermoflex material is very cozy and has great wicking capabilities. Also, the reflective strips on the zippers are a great added detail. I can't recommend these enough.

I adore this jersey. I've worn it on long Fall rides and commuting around the city. It fits impeccably and is stylish to boot. I'm 5'6" and 135lbs, and went with a medium which fits perfectly. I wear it with the Castelli Calorosa Cap Sleeve baselayer and the two are a great combo. Plus anything that helps me enjoy riding in cooler weather even more is a plus!
