A superb pair of cycling shorts that provide ultimate comfort from top to bottom. Featuring new improved details, Castelli's high-tech fabrics and tempting price tag will leave you wanting more and more of its kind.


Made from Castelli's Endurance Evolution fabric, a super flat Lycra, the Velocissima Shorts will feel extremely dry against the skin whilst giving just the right amount of muscle support. The front and back section around the waist, lies completely flat with zero stitching and elastic, eliminating that digging-in sensation - you'll be in belly heaven.


At the leg end Castelli use a raw-cut edge with vertical silicone strips just like on their top of the range Premio shorts to keep the leg in place without the pressure that creates the dreaded sausage effect.


Then there's the KISS Air Donna women's specific seat pad which provides the perfect amount of cushioning, for the comfiest ride without being bulky.

  • 71% Polyamide (Nylon) | 29% Elastane (Spandex) 
  • Endurance Evolution fabric 
  • Lightweight & Breathable provides optimum muscle support 
  • Raw-edge leg ending eliminates sausage effect
  • Feels dryer in nearly all conditions 
  • High visibility reflective patches at back of leg
  • Flat-form waist construction, eliminates stitching & elastic ~ front & back 
  • KISS Air Donna women's specific pad ~ proven comfort 

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! For the full Castelli story (it's quite a story!), click here.

        Standard UK delivery is usually 2-3 working days. We use Royal Mail's Tracked 48 service - you will receive a tracking code with your order.

        Next Day Delivery (guaranteed by 12pm with Royal Mail) is available on some products when ordered before 1pm. This option will be shown next to the specific product when available.
