Review by Trucker

excellent seat pad
by Trucker

Foothills in Amador county

Great bib and the Progetto X2 seat pad is the best ever. I really like the Kiss 2 seat pad but this one works even better for me. Rode 80 miles today and was so comfortable at the end of the ride that I ordered another pair. Give this bib a try as I feel you'll find it exceptional in every way.

Well made and with quality material. Not inexpensive.
by KD

Used for long rides 4-8 hours. Ordered M and it is a good snug fit for a 32 waist. Wear with chamois cream and so far no chaffing or other usual issues. Have bought again for multiple day rides.

Excellent bibshort/great price
by Dave R.

Purchased these on sale and with extra points were a great price. Shorts are very comfortable, have Castelli's high end seat pad. I use them for rides ranging from 40-100 miles. So far have been excellent. I prefer the silicone grippers on the legs. They just stay in place the best for me. Size, I normally purchase XL in Castelli bib shorts. With these I had to go to 2XL. They run even smaller than normal. I'm tall/thin 6'6' 185-190 lbs. 32-33 waist size. Length on the legs is also ample even for my height. They might be a little too long on shorter riders? Plan to buy more of these.

Size is way off
by Murph

I�m 5�11�, 215-220lbs, I wear pants with 36� waste. I wear XL in ASSOS, LG and Pearl Izumi bibs. I checked the sizing chart for these bibs and other people�s comments so I purchased an XXL Endurance 3 Bibshort. Tried them on before riding, they were tight but I thought they�d work. Man was I wrong, I went out for a 50 mile ride, chamois was nice but things were to snug around the man parts. Straps were tight and didn�t lay flat. Now that I�ve ridden in them, guess I�m stuck with them. Rolled the dice on these, should of put the money towards another pair of ASSOS bibs. Hope this review helps the next person.

Great bibs

I ride a minimum of 5 days a week, 12+ hours. I have found these bibs to be durable and comfortable. I have done short races in them and long endurance events. They have become my "go to" bibs.

Crazy sizing, too restrictive
by Kurt

The construction of the shorts is very good, and I love the chamois, which is the best I've tried. The material feels and looks expensive. However, I can't wear these bibs on anything but short rides. I sized up and bought XL, just as I did with another Castelli bib that fits. They were too small, so I returned them and bought XXL. That alone is strange because I use large with other products, and even medium with some manufacturers. The issue was first, the tightness of the straps. I'm 189cm (6'3"), and XXL is still a little too tight with the shoulder straps. The second issue is that the material doesn't stretch much, and I have sprinter thighs, so where other bibs stretch to accommodate, these don't and they bind in places. I could have sized up to 3XL, but then they'd be too big in places.

I think if you're smaller, and you have thinner legs, these could be perfect, but they won't stretch to fit you.

You deserve this kind of comfort.

No comparison between the team wear and this piece. Long rides on consecutive days usually take a toll but the padding on this bib short make the hours go by without even noticing discomfort. Get yourself some pro-level shorts if you've hesitated. These don't have the most technical fabric but they do seem durable and supportive. It's really the chamois that sets these apart from everything else I've used.

The Castelli brand has great quality. The Progetto x2 Air is the most comfortable chamois I own. The size does run small be aware.

I have 4 of these in total I think and will be getting more to keep for backup. They are so comfortable. I tried a lot of bibs on here, and these and these are one of my favorites for long rides.

Durable Everyday Bibs

These are solid bib shorts, well-made, low profile and comfortable. Sizing: I am 5'8", 150 lbs, 31" waist, and I wear Large Castelli bibs and Medium Castelli jerseys. The Large in these shorts is very snug on me, and an XL probably would have fit too. That said, they're very comfortable on the bike, and the chamois is excellent. The fabric is a bit stiff compared to other Castelli shorts I own, but they feel like they'll last forever. I like the minimal branding, too.

Before picking up my first pair of Castelli bibs, I mainly wore PZ shorts. The Competizione bibs were a night and day improvement over the PZ chamois and I was never looking back. When I first got the Endurance bibs, I was a little disappointed comparing them to the Competiziones. The material is thinner with no texture and the grippers did not feel as robust. However, the chamois was clearly different so I decided to give them a try. Boy was I wrong with expectations. First off, the chamois is much improved which I did not know was even possible. I literally do not even know the bike is there. Secondly, the grippers and material somehow offer more support while breathing better at the same time. These are my new go to bibs for longer rides and literally cannot wait to put them on.

Good quality, crazy sizing

The quality is excellent, and each part of the fabric is perfectly contoured to fit. The chamois is a step up from the one in my older pair of Castelli bibs. It's super light and minimalist.

Castelli sizing, however, makes no sense. I wear a large in everything, so I ordered an XL, knowing Castelli runs small. My other set of Castelli bibs is XL. I tried these on and could barely squeeze into them, so I had to exchange them for XXL. It's hard to buy Castelli because the sizing isn't consistent.

I am a loyal Castelli wearer. I decided to upgrade from the endurance 2. Just a few rides but I like the fit, the chamois seems a tad more comfortable. I can�t wait to put in some long rides to check the endurance label

Right out of the box you can see and feel the quality. Pad is super comfortable...front and back. Leg compression is just right. Shoulder straps are so comfortable you'll forget that they are there. Seams are flawless. Put them on and forget them!

Best Bib I Own
by CvK

The chamois on these are the perfect thickness. Not too thick that makes you move around and not too thin to make a long ride difficult. The chamois is also so good that I only need chamois cream on very long rides. The silicone grippers are also fantastic and never slip. I'm 6' 190 and these are XL which fit perfectly. Everything about these are great.

5; 9", 32 waist, I ordered the large and fit perfectly. Sizing up led to a comfortable ride with good compression and padding. Good wicking and overall comfort. About 150 miles ridden in them including a 50miler, and no complaints at all re comfort.

I have been riding Castelli bibs for the last 8 years, and I am extremely happy of that last 2 I ordered and used for Unbound gravel.

Very comfortable, maybe on the heavy side but no butt pain after 14h on the bike.

I already had the Endurance 2 and as far as I can tell the Endurance 3 is the same. Fits perfectly but there's not a lot of padding in the seat. Not really a problem for me - just comparing it to other shorts I have. Workmanship is excellent.

Very nicely made bibs, fabric feels good, and most importantly the chamois is very comfortable for longer rides. My only gripe is the leg grippers can make it hard to adjust the fit if your legs are on the thicker side. Sizing is as expected from Castelli, I ordered 2XL and I am 6'3" 220. Compared to other bibs, this feels a bit tight on the length, but I didn't think 3XL would solve that problem.
