The main story of this short is the use of our renowned top-of-the-line Progetto X2 Air Seamless seat pad in an otherwise traditional short, but in fact every little detail has been obsessed over to ensure your comfort on your next long endurance ride. A great pad is useless without great fit. The seams are placed around the hip area to create a perfect shape on the bike. The Endurance Evolution fabric has a soft hand while providing good compression and excellent moisture management. And it's all held in place with the amazingly comfortable GIRO3 leg gripper. This short offers exceptional value and is ready to deliver lasting comfort on your longest rides. - Endurance Evolution fabric provides optimum muscle support and feels drier in nearly all conditions - Anatomic cut for perfect on-bike fit - Mesh bib straps and back to keep you cooler - Progetto X2 Air Seamless seat pad for even greater comfort and improved airflow - GIRO3 leg grippers lie flat

It Just Works Right Castelli has innovation in our DNA, and we've brought you most innovations in cycling shorts over the years: the first Lycra shorts on the market, the first synthetic seat pads, the first anatomical seat pads, the first minimalist and flat bib straps, and the first flat leg grippers. All these have become industry standards, and we keep pushing and innovating in our high-end shorts. The Entrata short is where we bring all that knowledge and experience into a short that just plain works. The fabric is just the right weight with just the right stretch and with a matte finish that looks just right. The KISS Air2 seat pad is just right, as is the GIRO3 leg gripper. And the short fits just right because we obsess over the fit of every short we make. We wanted this short to be just right for many years to come, so we stitch on the logos and stitch in the reflective panels on the back. There are no logos to peel off, and everything is stitched down securely. This short gives you every reason to step up to Castelli. - KISS Air2 seat pad for all-day comfort - Pro Dry matte Lycra for good compression and moisture management - 8-panel construction for perfect fit - Rear reflective panels on lower leg - GIRO3 engineered flat leg band - Mesh bib straps for comfort and breathability - 15°-35°C / 59°-95°F - Weight: 173g

It's an old trick to wear a great bibshort underneath a tight or bibtight without a seat pad to give two layers over the sensitive bits, and this tight lets you avoid having double straps over your shoulders. And if you're throwing some running into your training mix, you'll marvel at the warmth and comfort of this tight, while the reflective details will keep you visible. - Thermoflex fabric for warmth and comfort - Ankle zippers for easy on/off - Reflective logo below knee - Reflective flap over ankle zipper for extra visibility

Innovative evolution The Free Aero RC Bibshort is our top race short, which also means that it's insanely comfortable even if you never pin on a number. It's fair to say that we've been working on this short for the past 15 years. That's how long it's been since the original free aero race bibshort was first introduced, initially as our top-of-the-line race short. Since then it has won three Tours de France, three Gri d'Italia, one Vuelta, and San Remo, but it also became the best-selling product in the history of Castelli because, simply put, this is the short that does everything well. The concept is quite simple: start with the best pad we know how to make, surround it with a supportive short with good muscle compression, and then remove everything else that's not absolutely necessary. You feel free thanks to the reduced number of panels and the reduced number of seams. In fact, the short portion has just 5 panels compared to 10 in the previous generation. You feel free because of further refinements to the Progetto X2 air seamless seat pad. The two densities of foam plus the gel pads provide progressive damping, while the separate skincare layer is soft and stretchy to move with your skin. You feel free thanks to the most minimal bibs you've ever seen in a short, including open-weave straps for maximum airflow. But we reinforced the yoke so the straps stay in place and made the mesh back narrow for coverage that is minimal yet just enough to hold the shorts in place. And the bib elegantly frames a convenient pocket at the center back. You feel free because this is the first high-end short that doesn't need any sort of gripper or elastic at the end of the leg to keep the leg in place. Getting this right meant 28 prototypes and our most extensive test program ever, and it results in the most comfortable leg ending we've ever made. The Forza 2 fabric has 32% lycra with a high modulus for exceptional muscle support and just the right amount of compression. There's reflective piping on the back. And all logos are either stitched or embossed for durability. - High-compression 215g Forza 2 fabric with 32% lycra content provides exceptional muscle support and compression - Progetto X2 air seamless seat pad is soft against the skin but well padded for long-distance comfort - Minimalist bib straps allow maximum airflow, while a reinforced yoke keeps the straps flat over the shoulders - Rear mesh pocket - 5-panel construction for reduced seams and less chafing - Sublimation-printed graphic and logos that will never peel, crack, or fade - Reflective piping on back of legs - Soft waistband with raw-cut edge panels for extra stretch and comfort - Raw-cut leg ending engineered to stay put without silicone grippers

Meticulous Evolution The Free Aero Race 4 Bibshort is our top race short, which also means that it's insanely comfortable even if you never pin on a number. The original Free Aero Race Bibshort was first introduced over a decade ago and has logged literally millions of kilometers under the backsides of our sponsored pro riders and has been the best-selling short both in the Castelli retail collection and in our Servizio Corse custom program. Over this time the short has undergone numerous updates and improvements in the never-ending quest to create the best short we can make. While the basic concept of a minimalist workhorse pro-level comfortable race short remains, every single fabric, component, stitch and construction method has been updated and improved over time. The fourth major generation of the short features the updated Progetto X2 Air Seamless seat pad. This pad separates a soft, stretchy skin care layer that moves with your body from a generously padded cushioning layer that replicates the form of your saddle. Eight-hour rides are no problem. Of course the fabrics are premium, made to our specifications by Italy's best fabric suppliers. The Forza fabric on the inner leg features 38% Lycra content for perfect fit, while the Vortex fabric on the side panels is dimpled for aerodynamics. And it's held in place by the latest iteration of our seamless flat Giro leg gripper. - Vortex dimpled fabric on legs for aero performance - Forza fabric on inner legs with 38% Lycra content for perfect fit - Stripe mesh engineered minimalist bib construction keeps you cool - Giro4 leg gripper elastic for better grip distributed over larger area - Doppio V construction in front for increased support and comfort - Flat-lock stitching - Progetto X2 Air Seamless seat pad - 15°-35°C / 59°-95°F - Weight: 172g

This is the no-compromise gravel or endurance mtb short. It combines the best features of Castelli's premier race short, the Free Aero RC bibshort, with Dyneema side panels for protection in case of a fall, and four pockets for storage. It's made first and foremost for riding comfort. It uses the top-of-the-line Progetto x2 air seamless seat pad that provides progressive damping and the softest, stretchiest skin contact layer available. The Forza 2 fabric provides just the right level of compression and muscle support for your longest rides. The comfort is further enhanced by the minimalist free bib strap-less material to keep you cooler, but just enough to keep your short in place. At the leg ending there's a raw-cut edge that you'll hardly feel, and the combination of the Forza 2 fabric with just the right length and circumference means that no silicone gripper is required. It's a big leap forward in terms of comfort. The two large leg pockets are lined with an extremely light and fast-wicking fabric so you won't notice the extra layer, yet they hold a surprising amount of gear. The two mesh pockets at the lower back mean you have enough storage space that you can forgo a traditional pocketed cycling jersey. The unlimited short really does know no limits. - High-compression 215g Forza 2 fabric with 32% lycra content provides exceptional muscle support and compression - Dyneema side panels to protect in the event of a tumble, 15x stronger than steel - Progetto X2 air seamless seat pad is soft against the skin but well padded for long-distance comfort - Minimalist bib straps allow maximum airflow, while a reinforced yoke keeps the straps flat over the shoulders - 2 rear mesh pockets - Large compression pocket on each leg - Raw-cut edge at waist for extra stretch and comfort - Raw-cut leg ending engineered to stay put without silicone grippers

This short is the result of decades spent working to make long hours in the saddle ever more comfortable. The fabric is our high-stretch Forza fabric. The 38% Lycra content means that it’s gently compressive while never binding. And it maintains an insanely soft hand. The nearly seamless construction is derived from our Body Paint shorts, which debuted a decade ago and started the trend of reduced seams while maintaining remarkable fit. Nothing to rub or break. The renowned Progetto X2 Air Seamless seat pad gets an update in this season with a new skin care layer that features a remarkably soft new surface fabric and more stretch, which allows us to eliminate the front triangle. We also obsessed over every other little detail, like the new bib construction and even new silicone logos that stretch with the base fabric and recall the logo location of the first Castelli Aero Short from the late ’70s, the short that started it all. - Forza fabric with 38% Lycra content for a perfect fit - Dual-layer lumbar support band keeps shorts locked in place around waist - Reduced seaming for more comfort - Raw-edge leg ending with vertical silicone grippers - Mesh back with bonded 2-layer bib straps - Silicone Castelli logos - Progetto X2 Air Seamless seat pad

The Premio Bibshort has been engineered to provide the ultimate in long-distance comfort and to be your favorite bibshort ever. That's a big claim, but there's a lot of development in this short to back it up. So let's take a tour of the short. The first thing you might notice is what's missing: the seams and multiple panels. We engineered a new fabric that changes depending on the needs over various parts of the body. The lower leg has a raw-cut leg ending and rubberized yarns to guarantee a flat grip to keep the leg in place. The fabric becomes lighter in the thigh, while the four-way stretch provides just the right amount of muscle support. In the pelvis area, the compression and support increase to keep the seat pad and everything else in place, and the fabric gets thicker to avoid any embarrassing transparency issues. With this magical fabric we don't need to stitch separate panels together, which ensures more comfort and a better fit, as well as a sleek, sophisticated look. The premium fabrics extend into the bib straps. The perforated back keeps you cool and the edge is bonded so you don't feel the thickness of a stitched edge. The elastic straps have just enough modulus (return) to hold your shorts securely in place without cutting in to your shoulders. The seat pad is our top-of-the-line Progetto X2 Air Seamless pad. It's actually two separate components: a soft, stretchy Skin Care Layer next to your skin, which has the sole purpose of preventing any rubbing on your skin, and, under that, the Cushioning Layer, which features two separate densities of foam along with breathable perforated gel inserts under the ischia bones and perineum. We've carried the less-is-more theme into the design, with minimalist laser-etched logos and subtle finishing. It looks as premium as it feels. You can tell that every component, every stitch, every detail has been obsessed over. You'll not find a better bibshort. - The premium all-conditions short - Gradient stretch woven fabric for the right support in the right place - Woven fabric weighs 30% less than comparable knit fabric - Perforated back bib panel with lie flat bib straps that don't bind at shoulders - Integrated gripper elastic at leg ending holds short in place without need for extra silicone grippers - Laser-etched logos with RossoCorsa at center back and black scorpion shadow logos at lower legs - Progetto X2 Air Seamless seat pad

A Better Short Shorts are an obsession at Castelli. They're the most vital piece of clothing and one of the hardest to get right. Even though the Prima is our entry-level short, it shows that we won't compromise anything for comfort and performance. It starts with the women's-specific KISS Air2 seat pad. Just the name gives an idea of the process of constant improvement, which started with a soft KISS pad that was improved by making it more breathable (Air) and then improved again in the latest update to use the softest-ever top fabric (2). It's ready for your next big ride indoors or out. We've updated the fabric to the new Pro Dry Soft, which has a smooth matte finish that feels cool on the skin while being very supportive and quick to dry. We wanted this short to be just right for many years to come, so little details like the reflective patches are stitched in instead of being glued on, and the GIRO3 elastic has the grip woven right into the fabric. This attention to detail — go ahead and call it an obsession — is why Castelli's entry-level short is just a better short. - KISS Air2 seat pad for all-day comfort - Pro Dry Soft matte Lycra is sleek looking and ultra-breathable - Anatomic construction for perfect fit - Rear reflective panels - GIRO3 engineered flat leg band - 15°-35°C / 59°-95°F - Weight: 160g

Don't Limit Yourself We made this short to meet Castelli's high standards for comfort and performance in a cycling short while adding a few extra features that come in handy for riding on any surface. You'll find our normal exceptional fit as well as the KISS Air2 seat pad, which provides generous anatomically placed padding with an exceptionally soft top layer. What makes this short special is the extremely durable Unlimited Lycra fabric. It has higher abrasion resistance and tear resistance while not compromising on stretch, moisture management or comfort. In addition, we use double-layer side panels for the old track rider's trick of fabric-sliding-on-fabric should you fall. This short isn't really meant to be indestructible, but it significantly increases the chances that sliding out on gravel will mean you need to just brush yourself off rather than having to buy a new pair of shorts. That second layer on the side panel also makes for convenient side pockets, with a flap over the top to prevent the contents from falling out. For added convenience while riding on and off road, you have two mesh pockets on the lower back that compress gear next to your body to keep it from bouncing around. This short adds durability and storage without compromising comfort — for unlimited amounts of fun. - Made for fast riding on unlimited terrain - 200 g/m2 nylon/Lycra fabric with best-in-class abrasion and tear resistance - 2 mesh rear pockets built into mesh bib straps - Double-layer side panels reduce abrasion if you fall, while also creating 2 useful side pockets - Raw-cut leg ending with vertical silicone grip strips to hold leg in place - KISS Air2 seat pad for long-distance comfort - 15°-32°C / 59°-90°F - Weight: 200g
