Tour Cycling chose to carry Castelli Bibshorts because Castelli has specialized the cut and design of the bib short for the cyclist’s body in riding position. The one-piece knit, engineered, virtually seamless fabric compresses and hugs the cyclist’s body so they feel comfortable and very aerodynamic. This is why Castelli bibshorts are for performance minded cyclists who want a pair of cycling bibshorts that will give their bodies the needed support when riding hard and fast.
Castelli engineers used aero dimples on the fabric and a smooth fit to create some of the most aerodynamic shorts around. The Lycra in the bibshorts has amazing stretch and rebound qualities. There is no bunching of the material whether you are cruising up on the hoods or tucked deep into the saddle riding all out.
Because Castelli bibshorts have only the most essential seams, you’ll ride in a smooth pair of cycling bibs that hug your skin with no chafing. The updated Giro3 integrated leg grippers keep the shorts in place and they too won’t chafe your skin. The grippers even lie flat which adds to the aerodynamic design of the Castelli cycling bibshorts. This is another factor in the construction of this cycling apparel that equates with comfort.
The mesh on the back of Castelli bibshorts allows air to circulate which keeps you cool and allows your skin to breathe. The upper part of the bibs is made from the special Giro2 Bib Straps that are soft and stretchy. These bibs are comfortable not just because of the fabric’s ability to keep you cool, but also because of the smooth feel of the material against your skin no matter what position you are settled into on your bike.
The chamois in Castelli bibshorts are also designed for comfort. The Progetto X2 Air Seat Pad has been tested by the Garmin-Cervelo Team to make it the most comfortable chamois there is for the performance rider. The Progetto X2 is made with two layers. The layer closest to your skin has bacteriostatic seamless four-way stretch material that is comfortable and designed to fit. A second layer, of perforated foam, helps to ventilate while it protects you. Castelli’s Kiss 3 Seat Pad is anatomically shaped with varying densities of padding so it fits your body without adding unnecessary bulk. This seat pad is more affordable than the Progetto X2 but still provides the protection you need.
