Velocissima Limited Edition Bib Short

Castelli's Velocissima Limited Edition Bib Short for Women is the answer to unyielding requests for a bib that offers support when we embark on our longest rides. With high-end compressive fabrics, and a supportive chamois that cushions road chatter, the Velocissima is sure to become an indispensable staple in your cycling wardrobe when you're heading for rides that make minced meat of your weeknight chamois. The new limited edition model brings the support you expect for long rides, with enhanced colorful stitching to spice up your kit just a touch, without obnoxious and over-the-top patterns.

The Velocissima's main fabric, Endurance Evolution, is the heart of the shorts' straightforward functionality. This is the same material used in Castelli's long-distance men's shorts, the Endurances, and it provides the same compressive support and effective moisture management. Staying dry is a nice benefit on a long ride, but the shorts' real strength is the compression, which reduces the fatiguing effects of road noise and muscle oscillation so your legs stay fresh beyond the 60, 80, or 100 mile mark. The Velocissima shorts are also finished off with the same Giro 3 leg grippers as the Endurances, which omit the pinching elastic more commonly used in favor of a wide, gripping band.

One advantage the Velocissima Bib Shorts enjoy over their men-specific counterparts is the waist paneling, which eliminates uncomfortable stitching and elastic to lie flat, avoid pinching, and maintain fit. The contour of the paneling coincidentally elevates the fit of the bib for more body types, flattering and contouring to your shape to enhance your comfort in the saddle. The waist feeds in to mesh straps, which are lightweight and airy for a barely-there feel that keeps everything in place. And by "everything," we of course mean the KISS Air women's chamois, which shares the women's-specific design with padding and relief strategically laid-out to accommodate women's anatomy. The shorts are finished with reflective elements to help keep you visible in low-light conditions.

Currently my favorite bib shorts!

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

First of all, they are super comfortable, they have great padding, fit real nicely. They also are a little thicker than some of my other shorts and therefore great for the California winter weather!
I have found that in Castelli I need a size small, whereas in American brands, I am always an xs.

Bulky chamois.

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I liked the material and the compression but it does not seem to be a very breathable bib. I could live with the material but the chamois is extremely large and bulky. I felt it behind my buttocks as I move around, It is too large.
