From its 10 panel construction to the Affinity Lycra® used to make it, the Castelli Velocissimo GT Bibshort covers every inch of your skin with absolutely no bunching of fabric whether in a time-trial position or climbing out of the saddle up a mountain. The Affinity Lycra® 210 g fabric is very stretchy and exceptionally light. In the heat, these shorts are great because they are breathable. Air circulates through the fabric to maintain the best body temperature for someone who needs to deliver all-out effort. The circulation of air also evaporates unwanted body moisture. Even the body straps have mesh in them which is a fabric that absorbs and evaporates sweat. The GIRO3 leg band elastic grips keep the cycling shorts in place without pinching the skin. The seat pad is one of the most important qualities in a pair of cycling bib-shorts, and the KISS3 seat pad is good for short to medium length rides. Although it is one step below Castelli’s Progetto X2 seat pad, the KISS 3 still has a lot of the qualities required to ride comfortably and it is more affordable. The layer closest to the skin is a super soft brushed and seamless microfiber that avoids chafing the skin. The bacteriostatic treatment helps to prevent infection. The padding varies in thickness in different areas. The maximum cushioning is under the ischial zones so the pad protects the most in the area most susceptible to injury. The padding tapers down in the area of the perineum which is the next area to get pressure from sitting on a bicycle saddle. The padding then thins out at the perimeter of the seat pad. The advantage of this design that provides the necessary thickness in the right areas is that you don’t have a bulky seat pad interfering with your pedal stroke. Suggested for temperatures ranging from 62 F to 95 F (17-35C).
