Product Description

The Castelli Velocissima 2 Short offers unrivalled breathability whilst maintaining maximum comfort and freedom of movement for long endurance rides or even quick hour-long sessions, without the hassle of bibshorts.

The shorts are made from Endurance Evolution fabric that is highly breathable, keeps you feeling drier in all conditions, and has a high modulus stretch for comfort. The fabric provides just the right amount of compression to help with optimal muscle support and blood circulation.

The Velocissima 2 Short is a highly considered, sleek design. Vertical silicone strips – borrowed from the top-of-the-line Premio shorts – hold the short endings in place while eliminating bulging. A flat-form waist construction in the front and rear accommodates a wider range of body shapes. 

The women’s specific KISS Air seat pad is the product of extensive rider testing and provides maximum comfort with minimal bulk. The fabric closest to the skin is incredibly soft for long-lasting comfort and is stretchy to move with you while dual-density foam gives you the right amount of cushioning in every part of the pad.

For a highly resolved design that looks as good as it performs, whilst maintaining comfort on those longer rides, this is a winning short.

Key Features:

  • Women’s specific short ideal for endurance riding
  • Made from Endurance Evolution fabric for a matte finish and high modulus stretch
  • Raw edge leg endings with vertical silicone strips to keep ending in place
  • High-visibility reflective patches at the back of the leg
  • Kiss Air2 women’s specific seat pad for long distance comfort

Shorts Guide

Why do I need cycle specific shorts?

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.

Padded Chamois

Most cycling shorts come with a padded insert known as a chamois. This insert relieves pressure in your sensitive areas and stops numbness.

Anatomical Cut

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.

Technical Fabrics

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.

What types of shorts are available?

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.
