If you ride a bike, investing in a good pair of cycling-specific shorts is one of the best things you can do to enhance your riding experience, whether you prefer road or gravel. While it may seem unnecessary to wear technical clothing just for a casual bike ride, cycling shorts are designed with comfort and performance in mind, making them a crucial piece of gear for any serious cyclist.

They provide a range of benefits. First, they feature a padded seat-pad that absorbs shock and reduces pressure on the sit bones, preventing pain and discomfort on long rides. Second, the moisture-wicking fabric helps to keep the rider dry and comfortable by reducing sweat buildup, while the form-fitting design reduces wind resistance and enhances speed and efficiency.

All these features result in shorts able to guarantee comfort, muscle support and aerodynamic advantages, which take your cycling experience to the next level.
So, don't forget to grab a pair of cycling-specific shorts before your next ride!

When searching for cycling shorts, people tend to look for a variety of attributes. Here are some common attributes you might consider when choosing our cycling shorts.

This is often the most important attribute people look for. A good pair of cycling shorts should be comfortable to wear, especially during long rides. Features such as padded seat-padbreathable fabric and a good fit are all important for comfort. Made from high-quality stretchy materials, our cycling shorts allow a full range of motion and prevent chafing or irritation.
Cycling is a sweaty activity, especially when it’s hot. People want cycling shorts that can wick away moisture and keep them dry and comfortable. Our shorts, made with moisture-wicking fabrics like polyester and Lycra® blends, keep riders cool and dry by drawing sweat away from the skin and allowing it to evaporate. Their excellent moisture management is key to their comfort and performance benefits, allowing riders to focus on the road ahead, without being distracted by discomfort or irritation.
Cycling shorts can be an investment, so people want a pair that will last. For this reason, looking for shorts made from high-quality materials that can withstand frequent washing and wear is essential for any serious cyclist. We’re talking about fabrics like our Endurance Evolution featured in the Endurance 3 Bibshort, known for its durability, lightweight and breathability. Flatlock seams and high-quality seat-pads, typically made from materials like foam which are resistant to compression, also contribute to their durability. To keep them in excellent condition, it's crucial to follow proper care instructions, such as avoiding fabric softeners or bleach and hang-drying them instead of using a dryer. By taking good care of your cycling shorts, you can ensure that they last for many rides to come.
A good fit is vital to enhance performance and prevent discomfort. The use of stretchy high-quality materials like Lycra® ensures a snug fit and freedom of movement, allowing shorts to guarantee great muscle support without being too tight. Bibshorts offer additional support, and a high waistband keeps the shorts in place and prevents back pain. Adjustable straps also distribute weight and prevent slipping. Finally, it goes without saying that correct size selection is also important for an optimal fit and to avoid restriction or chafing. In this regard, we advise you to carefully consult the size table provided by us.
Breathability is one of the crucial aspects to consider when looking for a comfortable and high-performing cycling short or bibshort, especially during the warm months. When it comes to breathability, the type of fabric used plays a significant role. The use of lightweight and breathable materials such as mesh on bib straps or pockets allows for optimal air circulation, which in turn promotes efficient evaporation of sweat and heat dissipation. This means that you can stay cool and dry, even during extended rides in hot conditions. Additionally, the excellent breathability of cycling shorts not only enhances your riding experience, but it also helps to prevent the accumulation of bacteria and unpleasant odors, keeping you feeling fresh and clean.
Aero plays a critical role in cycling as it studies the movement of air around an object. Reducing wind resistance significantly improves a cyclist's speed and performance, making aerodynamics essential in cycling shorts. These garments have a snug fit, lightweight fabric, and allow air to flow through. Some have features like strategically placed seams, panels, and textured fabrics that reduce drag and enhance airflow. Non-slip grips are also included in some garments to keep the shorts in place and decrease air turbulence. Aero is vital for cycling shorts, improving the speed and performance of both professional and recreational riders. Investing in high-quality, aerodynamic cycling shorts, like our Free Aero RC Bibshort, can make a significant difference in performance.
While not as important as comfort and performance, many people also consider style when choosing cycling shorts. Castelli's cycling shorts are known for their attention to detail and stylish design. Our designs are sleek, modern and minimalist, with the distinctive scorpion logo, instantly recognizable among cyclists the world over, often featured. As for colors, Castelli has always gone for versatile hues that tend to pair well with many different cycling jerseys. Compared to last year, we have a wider variety this year. In addition to the classic black, some models of bib shorts are available in new shades of blue and gray or in bolder colors such as bordeaux and green to suit the tastes of every cyclist.


Deux types de chamois sont utilisés. Le premier est notre chamois Progetto X2 Air Seamless, le plus confortable, que l’on retrouve dans le cuissard Free Aero Rc Bibshort, le Superleggera Bibshort, le Premio Black Bibshort et le Endurance 3 Bibshort. Il comporte une couche de soin de la peau ventilée qui vous garde au frais pendant les sorties longues, avec une conception à deux couches et un rembourrage à densité multiple pour un confort exceptionnel. La couche de soin de la peau est sans couture, s’adapte à la forme de votre corps et favorise la circulation de l’air pour l’évaporation. La couche de rembourrage intégrée utilise une épaisseur de mousse variable pour offrir un rembourrage là où il est le plus nécessaire. De plus, un rembourrage visqueux perforé est inclus sous les zones de pression sensibles pour encore plus de confort.

Le deuxième est le KISS Air2, que l’on retrouve dans le Competizione Bibshort et le Entrata 2 Bibshort. Il offre un confort durable avec un tissu supérieur plus doux, une couche de soin de la peau sans couture pour réduire les frottements et une grande élasticité. Il comporte une épaisseur à double densité variable pour un rembourrage optimal, avec la densité la plus élevée dans la zone ischiatique et qui diminue vers le périnée et le pourtour. De plus, sa forme anatomique assure un ajustement parfait pendant les coups de pédale, améliorant le confort global.
