Description

Velocissima 2 Bib Short

Castelli’s latest version of the Velocissima Bib short updates both the interior and exterior of the bib to make them more comfortable than ever. Designed for training both indoors and on the road, the Velocissima 2 Bib Short is crafted from Castelli’s Endurance Evolution fabric to provide 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 helps reduce muscle fatigue to keep legs fresh beyond the second or third hour of a ride.

New for the second version, the bibs are finished with a raw-edge hem to prevent any pinching or constricting at the thigh. Vertical silicone strips along the interior of the hem keep the short in place, which we’ve come to greatly appreciate during summer group rides. The waist construction reduces seams to eliminate irritation when in the riding position. Lightweight mesh bib straps keep the bib upper in place, without any gimmicks, just well-designed and well-cut fabrics. The Velocissima 2 uses an updated chamois, a women’s-specific KISS Air2, which is Castelli’s preferred long-distance insert. The shorts are finished with reflective elements to help keep you visible in low-light conditions.

  • Bib shorts offer comfort during high-mileage rides

  • Updated hem eliminates pinching with raw-edge cut

I own lots of Castelli products and absolutely love them. This bib was the opposite of my normal experience with Castelli. On the plus side, the fit is accurate and I really like that there is no seam on the bottom of the short- much more flattering. The reason I'm giving one star is because 1. the color was a light grey not "dark blue"; 2. after biking for 45 minutes it started showing sweat marks radiating from the chamois up and out- which was really embarrassing when I got off my bike and had to have conversations with a bunch of dudes; 3. the chamois was very uncomfortable. The seams were rough and the whole thing tended to fold in half and give me a front and back wedgie.

Quality item but second time I'm buying Castelli bib shorts with color listed as Dark Steel Blue and instead they are just light grey (correct SKU). Picture is completely misrepresenting the real color. The problem with grey that after a ride, your sweat looks like you peed yourself.
