Description

Competizione Limited Edition Short

With the Competizione Shorts, pro-level Castelli quality need not come at a pro-level price tag. Castelli drew on their premium shorts to design one 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 inside of the legs are 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 short 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
  • Bibless design simplifies summer layering and nature-breaks

Nice shorts but the sizing is way off

Familiarity:
I returned this product before using it

I'm usually a large in most shorts. I sized up to XL as these "ran small" and an XL was supposed to fit a 36.6in waist and I'm about 35". I didn't even have to get them out of the bag to know they weren't going to fit. The waist is several inches smaller than my other size L shorts. So "runs small" actually means off by over a full size. Interestingly I also bought a set of their bibs in XL which are snug but fit. Maybe it's just that the shorts are tighter around the waist.

Most expensive shorts i've owned, but worth the price. I'm 73" 170 lb. bought large. Seem perfect for me. they're snug and supportive. They are easy to forget about when riding; no chafing or other unpleasantness. Just what they should be. also very lightweight. I've used them for a couple of months.

These shorts fit a bit tight, but they are very comfortable all around. I also purchased the Castelli Rosa Giro Race Jersey and it has become my favorite shirt. As a matter of fact, this is my favorite biking outfit overall.

No way this is a Medium size

Fit:
Runs small
Size Bought
M

I have a 32" waist so ordered a pair of these in M size. I could barely get these up my legs, let alone around my waist. I doubt they even equated to an S size. The shorts themself look nice and are well made. I'm afraid to order a large size because they may not even be big enough given how undersized the Medium size was.
