Capo Museo Bib Short - Men's

Cruis-eo in the Museo.

Inspired by the stunning architecture from the SFMOMA, the Capo Men's Museo Bib brings you dazzling style and race-ready performance. An advanced 11-panel pattern and a blend of high-grade Italian textiles including medium-gauge Lycra bring you ideal compression, improved circulation, and reduced fatigue. Then, the seven-centimeter leg bands with a silicone surface and 360-degree stretch mesh bib uppers keep the shorts in place while allowing for plenty of freedom of movement. Finally, featuring a no-step flush surface and ultra-soft micro fiber top, the multi-density, highly breathable Corsa SE EIT chamois delivers comfort and support through its pressure relief, perfect fit, and long-distance protection.

Sizing is everything

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

I'm 5'11 - weigh in around 175 lbs with a 32 waist
I have been a long time Castelli customer and I am tired of the inconsistent sizing and quality. Our current team kit is made by Primal and I wear a medium bib. All the Italian manufactures size things smaller. In Castelli I wear anything from a L to a XXL. It is always the bib straps that create the problem. This is my third pair of Capo bibs (all in the last 3 months) and all 3 are a large with only minor differences in fit. Sizing and Quality seem very nice. I rate them 4 stars for now, we'll see how they hold up over time. For Bib sizing they should list a crotch to shoulder length. I have taken most of my Castelli bibs to a local seamstress and have had her add length to the straps.

First, but not last, Capo shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

These are my new favorite bib shorts. I got a Large and the fit is excellent. I've been a Pearl Izumi guy for a long time, but don't know that I'll ever go back. Nothing against PI, but these shorts fit as well as PI shorts, but feel a bit more finished. I did an 80-mile ride shortly after purchasing these and was extremely impressed with how well they wore.

They come up a bit higher around your stomach, which feels odd at first, but is actually quite nice. The length of the legs is one of the best features of these shorts. They're significantly longer than any other shorts I've worn. They have a "raw" hem that sits very flat and doesn't move at all during rides. The Corsa chamois is also fantastic and provides support in all the right places. If this is Capo's entry-level chamois, I'm excited to try their more premium offerings. The straps are supremely soft and I barely notice them during or after rides. I'll definitely be buying more Capo shorts in the future.

If I changed anything about these shorts, I'd give them more compression through the quads.

For a Euro brand, the sizing is very "American." If you're accustomed to American sizing, I'd stick with that size for these shorts.
