While the pros may be used to spending four to six hours in the saddle every day, those of us who are self-sponsored only occasionally get that kind of luxurious time on the bike. That's why, when we do, we find kit like Castelli's Velocissima Bib Shorts absolutely indispensable. The Velocissima shorts bring a level of comfort over long miles not found in our shorts designed for the usual one-to-three heour spins that we can work into our schedule. When we have the time for long rides, we want to enjoy them to the fullest.

The Velocissima's main fabric, Endurance Evolution, is the heart of the shorts' straightforward functionality as it provides compressive support and effective moisture management. Staying dry is a nice benefit on a long ride, but the shorts' real strength is the compression, which reduces the fatiguing effects of road noise and muscle oscillation so your legs stay fresh beyond the 60, 80, or 100 mile mark. The Velocissima shorts are also finished off with the Giro 3 leg grippers, which omit the pinching elastic more commonly used in favor of a wide, gripping band.

The waist paneling eliminates uncomfortable stitching and elastic to lie flat, avoid pinching, and maintain fit. The waist feeds into mesh straps, which are lightweight and airy for a barely there feel that keeps everything in place. And by "everything," we of course mean the KISS Air Donna chamois, which shares the women's-specific design with padding and relief strategically laid-out to accommodate women's anatomy. The shorts are finished with reflective elements to help keep you visible in low-light conditions.

  • Bib shorts offer comfort during high-mileage rides
  • Endurance Evolution fabric offers support and moisture management
  • KISS4 chamois offers women-specific cushioning
  • Giro3 leg grippers hold hems without pinching
  • Mesh straps secure the fit while allowing airflow

Great Bib

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

I've only worn these on a couple rides so far, and have found them to be perfectly comfortable on rides around the 2hr mark. The fit is true to size for Castelli and they've held up well so far. I went with a large in these bibs, and usually wear a large bib with Castelli and Giordana

Super comfy!!

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

This great is very comfy even on long distance rides. I rode up to 80 miles in this bib and felt comfortable. It does run a tiny bit smaller than my usual bibs

Comfy as hell; lycra losing opacity

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

After I wrecked my first pair of these bibs, I re-ordered the same size and style (definitely order a size up from what you normally wear...following the size guide *is* actually helpful). The chamois has always felt comfortable and retains its shape, and the remaining lycra is breathable and lightweight. On my second pair, however, I've noticed that the opacity of the lycra has turned awkwardly transparent after only a few washes (thanks to my riding partner for pointing this out...). I take care in machine-washing my cycling apparel, never use fabric softener and always hang dry. I am pretty disappointed (as is my wallet) that my second purchase of these is so quickly retiring to indoor-training-only bibs. I'm not sure what went wrong with this pair, but it's definitely a bummer.

Best first bibs!

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

Never tried bibs and so glad I tried the Castillie's for the first.... Chamois very nice, even comfortable for a 50 mile ride last weekend. Seriously, they are soooo comfortable!

Great Bibs

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

Castelli has managed to provide a pair of performance bibs at a reasonable price. Understanding that the brand tends to run small, I ordered up one size (from med to lg) and found a perfect fit. The chamois is nicely form fitting and comfortable - and as with all bibs, tends to stay where it belongs. Plan to buy more.

Nice cycling shorts, but to small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Small

I wear all S in my cycling apparel, not matter of the brand. First time with Castelli, I have to go M. I know, but forgot, Italian sizing is different from the others. I had to send the shorts back.

Not what I expected

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I love castelli, and have a couple of shorts that are size small. I ordered small bibs thinking they should fit but they were a bit too tight, way too snug on my thighs, and see through! I had to return the immediately.
