New kit comfort.
While few things quite match the excitement of new bike day, new kit day is pretty far up there. So if you need to add a new kit to your wardrobe and you want to show support for your favorite retailer, check out the Women's Competitive Cyclist Club Bib Short that we partnered with Castelli to create. These quality bibs will get you inspired for those long rides, all the while flying the CC flag, in total comfort thanks to its Affinity BLC textured fabric that boosts aerodynamics while keeping you dry and cool.
Castelli is known to craft apparel with top-notch construction while using highly technical fabrics, and these bibs are no exception. These shorts use a light mesh bib upper that breathes easily on warm summer rides, with aerodynamic, dimpled fabric on the front and outside of the legs helping to reduce drag so you can go a little faster with less effort. On the inner legs, Affinity Lycra is utilized for its impressive stretch properties, providing active compression and support. Castelli uses flatlock stitching which helps prevent irritation and chafing from unnecessary friction and the clean, raw edge hem on the Giro Air leg openings make for a smooth transition and a slip-free grip.
Castelli employs the comfortable, women's specific Kiss Air chamois on this collaboration, for all-day comfort in the saddle. The Kiss Air has a seamless brushed microfiber for a soft touch against the skin and is mobile enough to move with each pedal stroke. Its anatomical cut helps reduce pressure while still offering ample support. The multi-density foam transitions from 14 to 4-millimeters in thickness, placing more material where it's needed, and reducing bulk where it’s not. And since everyone loathes a saddle sore, Castelli infuses an anti-bacterial treatment on the chamois that helps prevent them so you never have to miss a day of riding.

- Q & A
Not true to Castelli sizing
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: XL
I always wear a size XL in Castelli and these Competitive Cyclist club version shorts run very small. Not wearable. My other Castelli shorts are made in the USA, these are made in El Salvador and are not of the same sizing or quality.
