Superleggera Bib Short

We’re well practiced at adjusting our upper body layering for the temperature, going from thermal to standard to an ultralight jersey as the seasons change, but too often we’re wearing the same style of bib short from the crisp days of early spring to mid-summer climbs. Castelli has long been chasing the perfect ultralight short for hot weather rides, and the Superleggera is their lightest yet at only 141g.

The question of durability versus weight required Castelli to return to the drawing board in designing the Superleggera bibs. Where most bibs use a knit fabric, Castelli developed an ultralight gradient woven textile, which is most robust near the insert to keep it in place and lightest near the hem for maximum breathability. The lighter fabric not only keeps us cooler but also absorbs less moisture as we sweat, helping us stay even cooler and lighter as we mash up the climbs of the summer training ride.

Castelli designed the Superleggera to be every bit as comfortable as their other race bibs. The Superleggera features the same mesh bib construction as the Free Aero Race 4 Bibs, a minimalist mesh upper for optimal breathability and openness of design. A Progetto X2 Air insert reduces friction in the saddle with its seamless upper and helps keep you cool with the perforated cushion layer. The bibs are finished with an integrated Lycra leg gripper, to keep the shorts well in place without adding weight to the hem.
