ROAD OR GRAVEL BIBSHORTS

An important distinction we can make regarding our shorts is between road and gravel shorts.
Although at first glance they look very similar, Castelli's road and gravel bibshorts are designed for different cycling disciplines and environments, so there are some key differences between the two.

Castelli's road bibshorts are lightweight and breathable to ensure high-performance road racing.
They also have a tighter and more aerodynamic fit, like our Free Aero Rc Bibshort designed for just that purpose.
On the other hand, Castelli's gravel bibshorts are designed for durability, comfort and versatility when riding rough off-road terrain.
They have a looser, more relaxed fit and they may also feature panels or reinforcements for protection in the event of a tumble.
An example is our Free Unlimited Bibshort with Dyneema® side panels, 15x stronger than steel.
Additionally, they may have more pockets for increased storage during your multi-day adventures.
