Competizione Limited Edition Bib Short

With the Competizione Bib Shorts, pro-level Castelli quality need not come at a pro-level price tag. Castelli drew on their premium bib shorts to design a bib perfect for training and riding, whether we fancy ourselves racers or riders. The Competizione features much of the same technology as their higher-end offerings, like a KISS Air2 insert and Giro4 leg grippers, making it comfortable for long and short rides alike.

The main panels use Castelli’s Vortex fabric for optimal breathability and comfort, while the bibs are a more open mesh to ventilate well beneath a jersey. Castelli uses a tighter Lycra for better compression, stretch, and rebound, where there’s more movement when pedaling. The KISS Air2 insert’s perforated padding and seamless upper keeps cool air moving through the short to ensure your comfort on the bike.

  • A bib with pro-level comfort at self-sponsored pricepoint
  • KISS Air2 chamois provides comfort for long and short rides
  • Affinity Pro Lycra offers stretch and rebound needed for optimal comfort
  • Mesh bib upper breathes well and supports

Although I have a bunch of Castelli tops this was the first time I have used their bibs. Ordered a large, which fits snug. Seems to fit me really well. Love the pad. Also love the color as it kind of matches my bike and the top that I also purchased.

Sure I had to order a size up from my Castelli shorts but that doesn't bruise my ego. Especially not with the comfortable padding and the mesh shoulder straps. I like the grip on the legs that keeps the material in place without being too tight or noticeable after hours of riding. I wear these on my longest rides now.

I read reviews that said to order up a size, so I did. I would say that ideally I should have ordered a XXL which is ridiculous. I’ll keep the XLs, but I can already tell that these won’t be my go to bibs for a long ride. Tight in the groin area and the shoulder straps dig in. My Pearl Izumis and Garneau are definitely more comfortable. The only thing I can say is they do look nice and I like the feel of the padding.

The Castelli brand is made and sized for a fit/athletic build. Pearl Izumis & Garneau are "american sizing".

Bought these as a gift for someone who would wear a M in most bike shorts, pants. Of course being a Euro fit , these run small. Went to a L, too tight in the bib/suspenders , XL ended up being the size, with still tight around the legs, good fit, bib/suspender slightly longer/more forgiving.

Amazing quality and color. The material is high end and the chamois sits where it needs to be. The grip around the leg is fantastic. Unfortunately the fit is very small. I’m 5’8 170lb got size L. The compression in the groin is too much. Also could barely put the straps over my shoulders. Go one or two sized bigger.

I have always wore cycling shorts, this is my first pair of bibs and I am beyond impressed. Fit is very comfortable for hours of riding with no hot spots. Thinking of buying a couple more.

I'm 6ft. @ 177 lbs and needed an XL.

Do the Castelli Competizione bins run true to size? I am 6’2”, 205 lbs, and typically wear a large. Just wondering if I should order a large.

I’m 6-1, 175, and always wear x-large in Castelli bibs and also from other Italian manufacturers. Always run small...
