Castelli Evoluzione Bib Knicker - Men's $
When you just need a little extra coverage.
The main panels of Castelli's Evoluzione Bib Knickers are sewn from Castelli’s 2stradi fabric. This midweight knit both pushes and pulls moisture to the surface for fast evaporation. Staying dry in cool weather is necessary to stay warm, and it’s also necessary when the clouds unexpectedly part and your ride becomes muggy. The bib straps are mesh to keep moisture from building up against your skin. At the bottom, InMold silicone leg grippers keep the eight-paneled shorts from riding up.
To keep your backside comfortable, Castelli uses the Kiss3 insert. Though the name is a bit odd, it provides anatomically-shaped panels of varying thicknesses that distribute pressure so that your perineal nerves are protected. It is designed to move with you using seamless, brushed microfiber. Additionally, the microfiber has a bacteriostatic treatment that helps to eliminate saddle sores.

Perfect for Fall Riding
- Fit: Runs small
I own -a lot- of Castelli gear, but I was a bit surprised here because they are so affordably priced... these are really excellent bib knickers.
Application: With their light-weight ProDry body panels, these are perfect for keeping your knees protected from wind chill (really important actually) while riding in 50-65 degree weather. Perfect for the Fall and Spring shoulder seasons.
The design is very simple and straightforward. But surprisingly effective. These are not made of 8 different kinds of exotic textile. But they are designed extremely well. The entire top is white mesh (front and back) for ventilation but also so not to show up under light colored jerseys (smart), the "kiss" chamois works great (also a pleasant surprise), and the calf grippers are wide and work very well.
Sizing: As anyone with a lot of Castelli gear knows, size up +1 with Castelli. Always.
This particular garment is definitely tailored for the slimmer rider -especially in the thigh and hip. I'm 5'9" and 185. The XL fit well (snug), but I'm at the max in terms of room in the thigh. Update: These have stretched a bit in the thigh (will stretch with use). They fit even better now.
