Pro innovation


First seen back in 2009 when Castelli Cervelo TestTeam rider Jeremy Hunt rode the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad in knee warmers that he had cut to knee length. It took six years for it to catch on, but half a dozen or so riders started the 2015 Omloop with that same look. So Castelli engineered a fabric that lets them leave a soft raw edge at the back of the knee that won't cut into you. The women's version is technically identical to the men's version but incorporates their women's bib shape, women's Progetto X2 Air seat pad, and women's specific fit. Get ready for your most comfortable fall riding ever.


  • Thermal short cut just to the knee. 

  • Thermoflex fabric for exceptional warmth, stretch and breathability. 

  • Raw-cut edge at anatomically shaped knee. 

  • Progetto X2 Air women's seat pad for long-distance comfort. 

  • Mesh bib straps so that you can regulate insulation with your base layers and not the bib. 

  • Reflective viz stripes for visibility. 

  • 189g (Small). 

  • 12-18 degrees. 

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!
