The baggy-short look without the feel, thanks to the slimmer fit and stretch woven fabric. It's ready for long-distance endurance rides, but it's also a great-looking casual short off the bike. - Stretch woven fabric with DWR finish - Extremely light so you won't even feel it on - 2 front pockets and 1 zippered rear pocket - Stretch waistband with zippered front opening - Scorpion button logo There are those days when a baggy short just seems like the right look. But you always debate whether you're willing to compromise comfort for that look, and you end up wearing Lycra®. So we set out to make a better baggy. We reached for a stretch woven fabric that gives great stretch but in an unbelievably lightweight yet durable fabric. We gave it a DWR finish so mud and water roll-off. We gave the short two top-opening pockets like jeans so that whatever you put in there won't fall out. We made the cut fairly close to the body so you look good off the bike but the short doesn't balloon out when you're on the bike. It all just kinda disappears. The short doesn't have its own seat pad, so wear this over your favorite Castelli short. The Superleggera is a good choice for warmer weather, or the Unlimited if you want the extra pockets.

The main story of this short is the use of our renowned top-of-the-line progetto x2 air donna seamless seat pad in a mostly 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. On your long endurance rides you'll especially appreciate Castelli's drop-tail bib construction. The wider bib straps are free-floating so you can cross them in front or back. They pull tight enough to keep your shorts in place, but when the need arises they stretch long enough that you can take a bathroom break without having to remove your jersey and bibs. 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 - Bib straps can cross in front or back and are extra elastic, allowing short to be pulled down for pee stops without removing bibs - Women's-specific progetto x2 air donna seamless seat pad for even greater comfort and improved airflow - Giro3 leg grippers lie flat

This baggy short is made for hard trail duty when you want the look of a baggy but the freedom of lycra. The fabric is extremely light, just 165 grams per square meter, but hard wearing thanks to 64% Cordura yarns. The 10% elastane gives it four-way stretch. Not only does it dry quickly, but the water-repellent fabric treatment means it sheds light rain and stays cleaner. The cut is slightly looser so it moves with you, never restricting. Yet the adjustable webbing belt at the waist lets you lock it in place so it won't slide down. With the ultimate trail short you should never feel too hot, so you can open up the zippered ventilation openings that run the full length of the legs, made to work with the mesh legs of the Castelli unlimited ultimate liner. You've never been this cool in a baggy short. - 165g 4-way-stretch woven Cordura fabric with DWR finish - Double-slider zippered ventilation along full length of legs - Extremely light so you won't even feel it on - 2 front pockets - Adjustable webbing belt for secure fit at waist, with zippered front opening

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. The various versions of the free have dressed all our pro women's teams over this time, and it also became the best-selling women's short 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 215 g Forza 2 fabric with 32% lycra content provides exceptional muscle support and compression - Women's-specific Progetto x2 air donna 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 - Stitched scorpion logo patch and embossed Castelli wordmark for durability - Reflective piping on back of legs - Raw-cut edge at waist for extra stretch and comfort - Raw-cut leg ending engineered to stay put without silicone grippers
