Castelli - Premio Bibs
EXCEPTIONALLY COMFORTABLE AND QUICK WICKING FOR YOUR LONGEST RIDE
When it comes to performance cycling, whether it’s long weekend rides, road races or granfondos, bibshorts are where it’s at for outright comfort. A perfect pair of bibshorts will provide just the right balance of comfort and support for your legs when you’re pounding out those kilometers.
With the Premio Bibshort we simply set out to design the most comfortable short we could make for your longest ride. The short feels like a second skin, comfortably snug around the legs, hips and buttocks. The few seams are carefully placed to avoid pulling or chafing. A short for the ride where you’re demanding something extra from your legs, from your mind, and from your equipment. We’ve all done those rides when you use every last bit of energy, draw on all those training rides, and appreciate that extra bit of support and protection.
Most Castelli products are made for racing and tend towards minimalism. This short goes the other way giving a bit more compression in the legs, an extra compression band around the lower back, and comes up a bit higher in front to hold everything in. We still couldn’t resist some nods towards minimalism, like the innovative leg ending that avoids any sort of elastic whatsoever and instead uses vertical bands that grip the leg with out limiting stretch.
The bib straps are completely seamless and just disappear when you put them on. And finally there’s the Progetto X2 Air seat pad that straddles the line between giving plenty of support and padding while being soft enough that you almost don’t feel it.
“A major theme owhen constructing the Premio Bibshort was to create shorts that wearers would be able to forget they had on for logging long hours on the road free of clothing-related distractions, “ said Steve Smith, Castelli Brand Manager.
