Lightweight, compact, awesome

This is a beautiful, well-made bibshort. Regarding fit, I am 175cm tall and 64kg -- the small fit beautifully. There's a bit of pull on the shoulder straps but that'll likely ease over a few months of use as there is a ton of stretch available. I like that it's snug, and it's really just right. I was blown away by how small this thing was wrapped up, as a cheaper company I was using before is still comparatively so bulky and heavy.

Yes they’re tight….as the should be!

5

I just purchased my third pair of these. I am 177cm and 78kg and the mediums fit perfectly. For what it’s worth when getting measured for a saddle my inseam was 84cm. These bibs are tight, but they are intended to be quite tight. I can’t imagine how some people are saying they are usually a small, but when ordering these they need a large. Yes, be careful when pulling them up. I tend to fold over the silicone band that holds the bib in place on the thighs as I am putting them on. Once on a ride they stay comfortable the entire time, although admittedly I have not gone out further than 120km in any of these bibs. Cheers!

Kiss pad is so good

5

Have ridden several other brands but decided to go up notch and try the Castellis, the KISS pad is so good. The shorts are pretty small fit but are very nice when is use.

Not satisfied

I have written my review very recently on this Castelli Competizione Bib Shorts. I needed to change the rating to one star as the chafing is now unbearable even with the chamois cream. I noticed now that beyond the poor stitches of the pad, there is excess material that really irritates the skin. I expect a lot more from Castelli. My two pairs of non-bib shorts have never created chafing for me. This bib shorts will likely remain stored in my closet for years to come. Disappointed.

Satisfied with a minor issue

4

This is my first bib short. I intended to write this review after 10 times of bike outing as most issues will appear after a few washes as well. I followed the size chart and XL just fits me well. Whenever it's my first time ordering from any brand, it usually follow their size chart. Different brand has different cut. The mesh straps are comfortable which was one of my concerns from switching to bib shorts. The leg gripper works very well. Material is smooth and appears not to be too thin. It stretches enough that it moulds to the skin. The seat pad is enough to providing comfort over 100 km ride, but not to big to be bulky. The reason for 4 stars rating is that from the last two rides the left size of the pad irritated my skin a bit. Not sure it is from the stitching.

A slight squeeze

4

First pair of Castelli bib shorts that I have purchased and I’m almost extremely happy with them. The chamois is great, I love the fact that there is no seam/joins in the construction like other brands, so it is really comfortable, I’ve only done a 80m trip with these and have to say no sore gooch!! However.... Castelli sizing..... I should’ve gone for xxl, I purchased xl and I am normally a large in other brands. I’m 5”10 (ish) and an average build. These are a little right around the lower back/hip region.... can’t return for obvious reasons. So a great bib but go up 2X sizes - trust me.

Castelli competizione bib shorts

Great bib shorts and very comfortable. Make sure you size up. I’m 5’11” 28/30” waist, 73kg and I went for the XL size. They fit me great and are very comfortable. To put sizing into perspective I would normally be a Size small in the likes of 2xu tri shorts or under armour and Nike running shorts.

Castelli bibs

5

Usual excellent Castelli quality on these superb bib shorts. Excellent fit once you allow for the skinny Italian sizes so make sure you order larger than normal ;-) Love the colour & design of these bibs with great padding/chamois perfectly suitable for long rides. No ride up on the legs or drop downs anywhere as the braces do their job superbly. Great piece of kit & highly recommended. A+
