Castelli made these shorts to their usual high standards for comfort and performance while adding a few extra features that come in handy for riding on any surface. You'll find the normal exceptional fit as well as the Progetto X2 Air Seamless Donna 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, Castelli 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

  • 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
  • Progetto X2 Air Seamless Donna seat pad for extra padding

Castelli Size Guide

Where Castelli once had a reputation for making gear that suited only very small Italian folk, the Castelli women's size scale is now very similar to 'normal' UK sizing.

That said, it is primarily designed with a snug fit in mind, so if you prefer more room or are between sizes, go up rather than down. If you are still unsure, feel free to contact us.

        Q. What do a 19th century Italian tailor, a designer for the Milan Ballet and the first ever lycra cycling shorts have in common?

        A. They are all part of a rich 140 year history that's led to today's most recognised brand in cycling: Castelli.

        Throw in a heart attack on a famous Italian climb, family feuds, Olympic gold medals and controversy in the pro peloton and it begins to sound more like a Sicilian soap opera than the backdrop to a cycling brand. But then again Castelli is no ordinary brand.

        Today, Castelli's scorpion emblem is arguably the single most recognised in cycling. Iconic is an overused word these days, but the Castelli brand surely qualifies.

        We first discovered Castelli on our year long ride through the Americas in 2010, when our founder Liz (pictured) wore Castelli shorts and loved them, so stocking them seemed an obvious choice. But we're almost as captivated by the story behind the name as the kit itself!
