Description

Why We Like The Endurance 3 Short

Tackle those long base mile rides in the Endurance 3 Short from Castelli. The short is designed to offer superior comfort for the entire duration of your ride so you can focus on the route and not your attire. Made of Castelli's Endurance Evolution fabric, the short stays in place with a compressive fit to help support muscles, and wicks moisture away quickly. Further muscle support comes courtesy of textured compression side panels.

Castelli builds the Endurance 3 with its top-tier Progetto X2 Air Seamless chamois that's redesigned to increase breathability and comfort. It sits softly against the skin, with a bacteriostatic layer and four-way stretch in the two-layer design. Castelli also includes its lie-flat Giro3 leg grippers to keep the leg openings in place for a soft, not sticky, feel against the skin. Final details include the embossed Castelli wordmark on the legs that add a touch of elegance.

  • A supportive short for long days in the saddle
  • Endurance Evolution fabric provides optimum support
  • Breathable design wicks moisture to keep you cool and dry
  • Compressive side panels deliver support to major muscles
  • Progetto X2 Air Seamless pad offers enhanced comfort an airflow
  • Giro3 leg grippers keep the short secured in place
  • Ideal for temperatures from 59° - 95°

Good successor to the Endurance 2

Familiarity:
I've used it several times
Fit:
True to size
Size Bought
Small
Height
5` 6"
Weight

I'd say these fit true to size, but that assumes you are used to Castelli. I've had a pair of the Endurance 2 for a while and they've been great so I got a pair of these. The fit is similar, they feel a little tighter, but I'm guessing that my old ones are stretched. The waistband is the only noticeable difference, it's wider and flatter than the 2. Like the last version, they run small, but don't fit as tightly as the race cut like the Competizione (which don't fit me). I'm a short stocky guy (I wear small shorts but medium jerseys for my chest and shoulders), but they work for me. As far as fit: they are tight, they're compression shorts, and you are NOT going to simply step into them and pull them up. I honestly have to put them on in stages and get the cuffs set around my thighs before I get them all the way on. And you'll have to "position" pretty deliberately. Once on, I find them very comfortable although the chamois sometimes takes a few minutes of riding to settle in since it can move a little in its 'pouch'. So I definitely recommend them, just understand what you are getting.

Way tooooo small fit

I ordered XL which is my BIB sizing with most renowned brands to find out that the Short waist barely fits a thigh ! .... really small, I am a mortal like most amateur cyclist and don't have the Tour de France GC climbers waist ! XL should be mortals XL, I am not even sure is a XXXL (biggest size available) fits me, although my Pant/Jeans Waist is only 34". Whilst the sizing / reviews mention that it fits small, the sizing info states that an XL is a 34" waist, so it's beyond wrong and misleading ... very disappointing. Short quality is great which is expected from Castelli, sizing on the site is a disaster. very unhappy and I cannot return it as i am not in US for now.

If you don't have a small d*ck before you put these on, you will after! :-) The sizing issues are well documented but the shorts and more importantly the butt padding are top notch. I have both a medium and a large and both work. I'm 5'10" and 140. These aren't spandex with a piece of cheap foam, (see Hincappie shorts). I don't know what a true pair of "pro shorts" feels like but these feel pretty darn good. Size up and buy!

Not for thick-legged, short guys

[After reading the other reviews, make that just "Not for thick-legged guys"] First of all, likely 4-star or 5-star for the right person, but not for me because of my build versus the sizing. I have used PI Pro shorts for many years, size medium, but they're wearing out, so I ordered these Castelli shorts. I guessed they'd run tight, so despite my 31" waist, I went with medium--the PI shorts have always worked well at that size. When I got the shorts I discovered two things; 1) my upper legs are thick (and heavy) enough that just getting these shorts on was ridiculously difficult; and 2) once on, the shorts were too long, barely clearing my kneecaps. What would have helped is if 1) the size chart had included an upper limit on the circumference of the upper leg at each size--I am not overweight, but don't fit the Castelli assumption that upper leg size is irrelevant; and 2) the size chart had signaled to me that my 31" inseam was too short for medium (or small) shorts, which it should have, thus my fault. So if you're short enough (say, 5'6 1/4"), or more importantly thick legged enough, you're neither a candidate for the pro tour nor for these shorts. Otherwise, they should be just fine.

I'm the same height 5'6.25" 165 33" waist with very muscular thighs from Colorado mountain biking. I'd characterize my body type as stocky fit.. Anyway I had the exact same experience as Richard. I'd be a borderline L/ XL in this short waist-wise and they were past my knees. Really wish they would make a short inseam version because the construction and chamois are what I need for the 3000+ combined miles I put in on the MTB, peloton and spin bike every year. 1000% made for tall thin guys only.

I am 5 feet 10 inches with a 29 inch waist and weigh 147 pounds. I often buy size small items from Louis Garneau. Chart indicated a small would fit a 31 inch waist man weighing 154 pounds. The short was TINY! Exchanging for a medium and hope that fits as otherwise it seems like a quality item.

May be great - but not for me

Fit:

large
Height

I wear medium in pretty much everything (5'9" and 155lbs); initially ordered a medium in this short and they were tiny. So I returned the medium (for a credit as Backcountry didn't seem to be able to handle an exchange) and ordered the large. I can fit in these, but so far they're still too tight, and the padding is inadequate for an endurance ride. I've worn them once for a three hour ride and I'm doubtful I'll ever wear them again unless I want to be sterile.

LOL (good review). I agree. Size LARGE for me (5'10', 150 lbs) is surprisingly small and constrictive. Compression is one thing but these brand new shorts are especially tight in the groin! I suspect sizing up would cause a sloppy fit elsewhere. Otherwise, they're well made so perhaps I'll keep 'em since I'm done fathering kids.

Hey Niul, Sorry to hear the fit of the Castelli shorts wasn't a good one for you. We can always do an exchange for used gear within 30 days of the purchase or anytime for gear still in new conditions, but you would need to reach out to one of our Gearheads on our toll free number 877-550-2639 or via the LiveChat on the website.

I've had 2 pair of Endurance 2 shorts. Just got the Endurance 3 and they feel smaller, but I did not have to size up. They have great cushion with the upgraded chamois. Didn't realize how worn my old pairs were.

These shorts are great but as others have mentioned with Castelli clothing, you might want to size up. I bought a medium but returned it for a large which fits much better. All other cycling clothing a medium is the correct size. I went on a ride with the large size and they're much better fit. I could barely squeeze into a medium without thinking I might tear them in the process.
