Go the distance in swift fashion.

Named after the Italian word for very speedy, it's only fitting that the Castelli Men's Velocissimo IV Bibshort keeps you pedaling swiftly across long distances without scratchy irritation, overheating issues, or chafing slowing you down. Full mesh bibs provide breathable support and stability and raw-cut leg endings remain faithfully in place with vertical silicone grippers that won't pinch your legs like some elastic leg bands.

Castelli uses a new anatomical shape for the patterning of the bib short. The new shape moves the stitching away from sensitive areas that usually succumb to irritation after long hours in the saddle. This way, you can ride all day long without annoying irritation or scratchiness holding you back, especially considering the fantastic KISS Air chamois plushly supporting your undercarriage.

Castelli's KISS Air chamois is comprised of dual-density foam that's lined with a seamless, dimpled microfiber that moves sweat off your skin to reduce discomfort. The chamois tapers from 14 to 4 millimeters in thickness, being thicker in the rear, then tapering off towards the front and sides. What this does is take the pressure off sensitive tissue areas, but without feeling like you're wearing a bulky pad that's prone to restricting your range of motion.

Good for daily use but sizes small

I really like the build of this bib short, it's solid. Not as light of material, it's on the thin but heavier side. However, it's way to small for me. I'm a medium typically in Castelli made in El Salvador. However, this one made in Morocco is tiny. I can barely get the shoulder straps over my shoulders so it feels uncomfortable. A large would probably work for me for this bibshort. I'm 5'6" and 150lbs. Lean buld, long torso. Too long for this bib short.

I've bought these each of the prior two years and have been very happy with them and I was looking forward to the new model. Castelli usually runs small and I typically go up one size. This year's model I'd have to go up two or three sizes for equivalent fit. Size aside, the quality of the fabric and construction seems much inferior to prior years.

Great Bibs!

I love these. I had purchased a previous years version and loved them, so I went for more. Couldn't be happier. They are super comfortable and have a great chamois that works wonderfully for my 125 - 200+ mile rides.

I did size up on these this season as I tried my normal medium and they were much more snug. The large fit perfectly!
