As the title says, I'm getting leg blisters because of the gripper, recommended only for short rides like for 1 or 2 hours of riding. Giving 2 stars for good quality fabric because if the fabric aint good I'm only giving 1 star.
Good fabtic that holds up to hundreds of washes. They run a size small, so order up. The dados very good, not great. I use as a MTB liner on 40 mile rides and roads for 60-80 miles.a little sore, but ok.
Been using Castelli for years. One psir so old it is getting a bit thin but hasnt torn. The Competizione are nice. Wide band at leg opening so no gripper sicone that chafes. Size up one from normal.
Regarding sizing, Iï¿½m 5-11 and 155 lbs, and tried both medium and large sizes. The medium was uncomfortably snug, so Iï¿½m using a large, which is very comfortable, though maybe slightly large for me. But Iï¿½m a casual rider and I donï¿½t like super tight shorts.
The Castelli emblems came off. The fit good and are comfortable for my rides so far. I don't think they are going to last very long.
Love these shorts! They feel slightly thinner than my others but provide just as much if not more support and comfort. Worth the buy for sure.
