First Bib Short
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs small
On my second ride with these bibs, I wrecked on a slippery wooden walkway, and skidded across the planks on my right thigh. Although my leg has a good burn, the shorts themselves stayed intact, and looked only slightly stressed.
The shoulder straps are a bit snug but are tolerable, and one must wear a base layer to prevent nipple chafing.
The chamois has ample cushioning, doesn’t bunch up, and does not hinder blood flow.
I don’t presently have any issue with stitches but time will tell. These bibs are my first set of bibs, first Castelli purchase too. Based only on initial impressions, I’d buy Castelli again but may stick to shorts only.
