Why We Like The Premio Black Bibshort

Graduating from a pair of traditional athletic shorts to a supportive bike short is a noteworthy step for many up-and-coming cyclists. To do so means you're willing to sacrifice casual style in the name of comfort as you don tight fabrics in public for the sake of more support. Once you grow accustomed to a reliable bike short, you'll begin to explore the foreign world of bibshorts as you push your abilities on the bike to new levels. When the day comes to upgrade your kit once again, look to the Castelli Premio Black Bibshort for unrivaled comfort and support in the saddle.

Its nearly seamless construction promotes a sleek fit while reducing the likelihood of chafing and abrasion, so you can stay on the bike for extended periods of time. When you learn to ride in aerodynamic positions, the bib profile prevents your lower back from being exposed to the wind, promoting a fit that's locked in place. As was the case with your cycling shorts, the Premio Black features a built-in Progetto X2 Air Seamless chamois to handle sitting duties, absorbing shock to your sensitive bits even when the roads feel more like a never-ending pothole. To keep you cool on warm summer rides, a mesh back is paired with bonded bib straps, delivering enhanced airflow for moisture-wicking comfort.

So this is a really good bibshort. Probably the best I have. Compression is on point, cut is good, and the chamois is also very comfortable. The look is understated and will go with every jersey. The straps initially seem a bit short (and tight), but I didn't really notice them once I was on the bike. Heat management seems moderate. They weren't especially cool or breathable. Not bad, just not "next level" good. Overall, they're great, but there's nothing so amazing about them that they're worth $100 more than my next nicest pair of bibs. Or at least not yet. Two hours is my longest ride in them so far, so maybe they'll shine with more time in the saddle. I was a little concerned with Castelli sizing, but medium is a great fit for me (I usually wear medium in most brands).
