Unlimited Bib Short
Ride often enough and we all come up with a very particular list of what would make a pair of bibs or kit better than its current state. We find ourselves daydreaming about the what-ifs of kit design and construction to come up with that perfect solution to the all-road rides we find ourselves taking these days. Castelli’s designers were on the same wavelength, as the Unlimited Bib Short has all the features we’ve been thinking of to make them perfect for all-day all-terrain rides, with integrated pockets and strategic double-layered fabric.
The Unlimited Bib upper hosts two integrated mesh pockets, which not only help to store extra fuel and essentials for long rides but also make it easy to pair the bibs with just a t-shirt for a more casual, single-track focused outing. With our rides challenging our notion of what is acceptable to cover on narrow tires, the Unlimited Bibs double-layer construction helps ensure we arrive back at home in one piece. Along the thigh and hip, there are two layers of Castelli’s Unlimited Lycra, which is more tear and abrasion-resistant, without feeling constrictive or heavy. This double layer acts as a slip-plane in event of a fall, while also providing sneaky pockets for those extra groceries.
The Unlimited Bibs share many of the same features as our other favorite shorts from Castelli. A KISS Air2 insert has a micro-perforated padding to ventilate as well as it cushions against mixed terrain. The mesh bib upper breathes well and lays flat beneath either jersey or t-shirt.
