Stay out all day.

We've all been out on masochistically long rides, some as a result of wrong turns and others to prep for race season, only to be gradually worn down by fabric that can't stand up to the mileage. This season, face your long rides with a short made specifically for the purpose. Whether you're riding a Fondo with the family or heading out on a punishing all-day ride of your own engineering, trust the Castelli Premio Men's Bib Short to keep fit issues out of the equation no matter how long you're out.

Among Castelli's upper echelon, including the Mondiale and the Free Aero Race, the Premio features extra support in the style of the Mondiale, at a more accessible price point. Developed with hours-long training rides in mind, the Premio's highly supportive Lycra blend is cut to follow a close, second skin fit that stabilizes your muscles over the miles, with as few seams as possible to maintain the fabric's fluid, supple feel in the saddle. Though it lacks the laser-cut perforations and bib straps of the Mondiale, the Premio comes with its own airy mesh lumbar panel and clean, bonded seaming on bib straps and legs.

  • Tackle your most ambitious rides in this endurance short
  • Form-fitting cut mimics your movements with a supportive fit
  • Breathable, stabilizing Lycra blend delivers hours of comfort
  • 3D mesh lumbar band gives extra support to lower back
  • Progetto X2 Chamois provides smooth, plush support
  • Raw-edge leg hems lined with light silicone for grip

castelli primo bib shorts

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XXL

these are made great,got a larger size and fit great they should last for years

Comfortable but wish straps were longer

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I'm a fan of Castelli Bib Shorts and have run through quite a Few Velo Bibs. I've found I want more compression, longer legs and more leg grip. I like Castelli Bibs because they don't have an oversized chamois pad.
The Mondiale has an excellent pad and the legs are longer...thank you! I rode a double Century the first time I used it and was very comfortable. Since have done a few more rides if 35- 75 miles and found them to be very comfortable except I feel like the shorts are being pulled too hard up. I'm a pretty big guy at 215 pounds but I wish the straps were a little longer. I might have to try the XXXL for length but then I worry the shorts won't provide enough compression. Also i would be embarrassed to admit I wear a XXXL for the first time after losing so much weight last year.
I've worn several other shorts but these have become my go to on longer rides. I just convinced myself to buy the XXXL. Please don't tell anyone

Very Comfortable Best Bibs I have ever wornπŸ˜€πŸ˜Ž

sizing not great

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I did wear the same size as I always do in Castelli but the legs were quite long. Also the straps were shorter than I'm used too. Even when bent over in riding position they felt tight. I prefer some of the other Castelli short offerings.

To anyone who has purchased these: Has Castelli fixed the problem with the gel bunching under the Progetto X2 chamois because the front of the gel was not secured in the front of the short? This was a problem for the last couple of years on the Free Aero shorts and bibs. See the reviews on that product. Thanks!

So far so good for me used on 8-10 long 40-60 mile rides.😎

These are the real deal

I have a 31-32" waist w/ a 19" thigh measured 8" above my knee cap center. The chart would put me in a size M which all my other shorts are. But I opted for the large; given the compression fit combined with the Castelli fit reputation. The M may have worked w/ a very snug fit but the Lg. are still plenty snug w/ no bunching. I am happy w/ the fit. I think the tighter fit may wear much quicker from stressing the fibers but I could be wrong. At this price they get 1 star off - even tho I'd do it all over again. I hope they last as long as my $35 Carhartt work shorts. They are better than the Free Aero (same size) which are better than....and on down. I have long legs & a short torso so the seemingly tight straps aren't a problem. Someone w/ a long torso will have a different experience. The pad for me is much more comfy than the Free Aero & the lumbar support really worx. I've worn them several times w/ a couple 5+ hour rides & had no saddle issues at the end.

Oh, I'm a guy using my wifes account

Primo Bibs

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

As a Castelli fan, I am always interested in new products and the Premio bib does not disappoint.
Being in the top tier of Castelli bib offerings, the Premio delivers on numerous points and the pros include the super comfy Progetto X2 chamois, seamless legs with no leg bands or grippers ( although a light silicone is applied to keep in place), lumbar support for all day riding, seamless bib straps for no chafing or rubbing.
Although the lumbar feature is there for support, I felt the sides ride up higher, certainly more than the Free fit bibs. The straps ran a bit shorter than other Castelli bibs I own, but this fit short coming could come from using a different, less flexible material.
Overall impression is that these are a great bibs for all day riding, allowing the rider move freely without restrictions and providing comfort.
