Entrata Bibknicker

Live where it’s not always 70, and sunny and knickers quickly become a shoulder season MVP. Castelli’s Limited Edition Entrata Bibnickers provide the same fit and feel of Castelli’s quality bib shorts, in length better suited to crisp mornings and fall days, keeping our knees warmer without the hassle of warmers. The Entrata Bibnickers feature a mesh bib upper and an 8-panel construction for a close fit cut for your position on the bike, with Giro3 leg bands to keep the hem in place with wide elastic for optimal fit and feel. Castelli uses their tried and true KISS Air2 insert, which has dual-density foam for all-day riding comfort.

  • Limited edition, versatile knicker for shoulder season riding
  • Pro Dry matte Lycra wicks moisture and maintains fit
  • KISS Air2 insert's foam provides all-day riding comfort
  • Giro3 leg band keeps hem in place without restricting movement
  • Mesh bib upper lays flat beneath jersey or jacket

Poor Fit and Cheaply Made

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: L

Suspender straps were narrow and cut into shoulders; I normally wear Size L bottoms, but a L is too small. The reflective Castelli logo on leg was poorly applied, already peeling off and the "C" was already off when I opened package. Compared to a pair of Castelli fleece lined tights Size L I purchased on this site a few years ago, these knickers are shoddy. I was not able to exchange for Size XL..."out of stock"! Had to request refund and ordered a different model of Castelli knickers. We shall see...

Poor Fit and Cheaply Made

Too Long for Me

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: L

I like 3/4 shorts or knickers to end just below the knee, leaving ankle and calf exposed but knees warm. I’ve never seen the point of knickers leaving 6” of your shins exposed instead of just wearing tights, but I realize that’s what most people like.

These were ultimately too long to do my usual trick of just pulling the elastic hem below my knee where I like it. I did not use these, but there was just too much fabric bunched up behind my knee based on past experience.

Gave three stars because it’s a fit issue for me, not really a quality issue. I said it runs large based on length, but the size is true to Castelli standards in other aspects. I have several other Castelli shorts/tights, and they’ve been great. The Omloop short fits the bill for warmer weather but I’m really looking for a warm/wind proof knicker that hits just below the knee in 35-45 degrees F. These aren’t it.

pleasantly warm, smallish fit

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

I'm 6' and a review I read said to go larger, so I went to XL on these. I wear L in Voler. I do find the bibs just slightly tight over the shoulders but not uncomfortable, and otherwise they fit fine.

The pad is somehow amazing, like sitting on air and I had to get used to it a little but it's just very comfortable.

These ones aren't just lycra that are longer, they do have a slight thermal fuzzy layer in them that is perfect where I am right now. Fallish/winter on the central coast of CA. I'm finding them perfect for road rides between 45-55 degrees.
