EMPHASIS ON COMFORT
Our entry-level short is figure flattering thanks to the lightly compressive matte-finish ProDry Soft fabric. Its two-layer construction keeps you dry and comfortable. The leg band features our InMold silicone leg gripper, which gives a clean edge finish and keeps the leg in place, but the soft stretch eliminates the dreaded sausage effect. We finish it off with flat-lock stitching and the newly improved KISS Air Donna seat pad.
New ProDry Soft 2-layer fabric provides exceptional moisture management
Affinity LycraÂ® front for extra stretch
KISS Air Donna seat pad for proven comfort
Innovative InMold silicone leg gripper with clean edge finish

Castelli Size Guide - tops and bottoms
Note: where Castelli once had a reputation for making gear that suited only very small Italian people, the Castelli women's size scale is now very similar to 'normal' UK sizing.

|X-Small||79cm / 31"||63cm / 25"||87cm / 34"||75cm / 29.5"|

Note: the inside leg measurement is naturally less relevant for shorts than for tights!
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.
