Light, cool, and straight out of the future.
Conquer the competition with shorts that do what they're supposed to — hold the seat pad securely in place while otherwise adding as little weight or fabric as absolutely necessary (without being transparent, obviously), and it needs to last a season of hard use. The Castelli Men's Superleggera Bibshort took this and ran with it, elevating these shorts into a crucial element of any ride.
Engineered with a brand-new fabric that utilizes a woven texture rather than knit that shaves 30% in weight for the same level of support and non-transparency. Constructed from a gradient fabric that becomes increasingly lighter the farther down the leg it extends. Featuring a delightfully light leg that weighs in at a mere 90 g/m2, while also maintaining decent durability and excellent abrasion resistance against the saddle. And no need to worry about feeling wighed down after a ride, this material also absorbs around 30% less moisture when you're sweating, guaranteeing the feeling of refreshment even when conquering the Alpe d'Huez. This short doesn't compromise on comfort.
Using top-of-the-line Progetto X2 Air Seamless seat pad, the spectacular striped mesh bibs from the Castelli Men's Superleggera Bibshort and a flat stretch woven leg gripper keeps everything in place. No matter where your bike takes you, ride with style that offers unmatched comfort at an unbeatable, breathable weight.

1st time trying Castelli, definitely not the last. Fit is perfect. Quality is top notch. I wanted to make an investment since I was spending so much time on the bike. I'm never going to sell my ass short again.
