Upgraded for 2016, the Castelli Velocissimo cycling bib shorts are super streamlined. In fact, the Italian for fast (really fast) is Velocissimo.
These feature packed cycling bib shorts come with a nine-panel construction offering a superb fit, sublimation GIRO3 leg grippers and the exceptionally comfortable KISS Air seat pad to keep you in the saddle for longer. New for 2016, the Castelli Velocissimo bib shorts come with a Doppio waistband for extra stretch around the stomach area.
These shorts are Castelli’s most popular because they hit all the features you need, wrapped up in classic Castelli styling. All their shorts do through the same design, development and wear-test process. Their testers are looking to replicate their pro peloton ready shorts for those at an affordable price.
When speed is everything, choose the Velocissimo.
Castelli sizing is awkward to say the least having had to send these shorts back twice for a different size. Having finally got the pair that fits, for me personally they are very uncomfortable especially around the front. I've worn these shorts for 3 long rides and some of the stitching is already coming away. Not the sort of quality you'd expect from an expensive brand like this..

If you've ever spent a long time in the saddle you'll know how uncomfortable wearing casual shorts can be. They chafe, fit poorly and offer little mobility. Cycling shorts make all the difference.
Most cycling shorts come with a padded insert known as a chamois. This insert relieves pressure in your sensitive areas and stops numbness.
Bike shorts are anatomically designed, often with a longer and higher cut at the back for when you’re in a riding position. This means you have a far more comfortable ride.
Lycra shorts will be snug with some stretch for aero performance and mobility. Casual baggies offer maximum freedom of movement for demanding trail riding.
Cycle shorts use performance fabrics such as lycra and nylon.
Lycra is quick wicking to help transfer moisture away from the body.
Nylon is bombproof for durable riding.
These fabrics offer some stretch for added mobility and flat stitching is smooth against your skin to reduce chafing.
Added features such as Teflon coating or Ripstop improve durability.
Lycra shorts | Ideal for road cycling
Lycra shorts (and bib shorts) offer the best comfort in the saddle. You wear these directly next to your skin – no underwear.
Lycra is quick drying and worn close against the skin meaning the chamois stays in place as you ride.
Leg grippers also help to keep the shorts in place.
Bib shorts | Ideal for road cycling
Bib shorts are similar to standard waist high lycra shorts. However, you also get supporting shoulder braces.
As there is no waist line to dig in to your stomach they are more comfortable. Bibs are pulled taught ensuring the chamois stays where you want it.
Baggy shorts | Ideal for mountain biking
Baggy shorts are popular because of the more casual style which also keeps your modesty in check.
Baggy shorts are more durable with fabrics designed not to rip and tear from branches or debris.
Slip knee pads under these shorts for extra protection. Plenty of pockets are ideal for stashing tools and nutrition.
Not all baggy shorts come with a pad but you can easily fit a pair of padded undershorts underneath.
Undershorts | Ideal for mountain biking
Undershorts are thin liners with an added chamois pads. Slip these under baggy or casual shorts extra comfort and protection in the saddle.
