The Castelli Men's Endurance X2 Bib Short is designed to support your legs on your longest rides, thanks to Castelli's Endurance Evolution fabric, which not only provides optimal muscle support, but also feels dryer in pretty much any conditions when compared to your other bib shorts. A newly-engineered bib shape is more comfortable on a wide variety of body shapes, so even if you've got some padding to ride off, you'll like these bibs.

Lie-flat leg grippers keep your shorts where you want them, and the Progetto X2 Air chamois offers famous comfort and superb airflow. Rear reflective tabs for extra visibility. Heat transfer Castelli logos on the thighs.

Note: Castelli tops and bottoms are designed with a performance cut that often runs smaller than that of other manufacturers. Consider sizing-up one size to ensure a comfortable fit — e.g., if you normally wear a Medium, select a Large in Castelli. Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

comfy, but size up at least one size, maybe two

I had a pair of Castelli bib tights with the same chamois as these (Endurance X2 shorts). The tights' chamois was very comfortable and the tights were mostly well-made. So I decided to try the bib shorts.

The chamois in the shorts is also very comfortable. The shorts are very tight, however. I sized up as recommended to an XL (Pearl Izumi larges fit me very comfortably). I am 6'0 170 lbs, with maybe larger thighs than the numbers would indicate. The Castelli XL's are the snuggest shorts I own, and the straps could be longer too. I tend toward preferring snug shorts, and decided (barely) to keep the XL Castelli's, so my choice, but I will try an XXL next time. After a few miles, I get used to the XL's, but they are really snug when they first go on.

Castelli continues to excel

As usual, the Castelli brand delivers quality technical garments that in my opinion are as good, or, better than any premium brand out there, and at a more reasonable price point. I've been a fan of Castelli for many years, having tried just about all of its competitors. My only complaint is that sizing, Castelli has always been very consistent in this capacity, but this time, my usual sizes ran smaller than usual (and no, I didn't get bigger).

SIZE UP

These are really nice bibs but take everyone's recommendation and size up. I usually wear a large bib size up to an XL would definitely go up another size again to a 2XL. They are VERY snug in the groin area when not on the bike. On the bike they are fine tho.

Very comfortable bibs

The Castelli Endurance X2 bib short are a great bib. I ordered the medium, I'm 150 lbs at 6'1. The fit and chamois is perfect. No movement at all. I have nothing to say bad about them. I wore them in the winter with some leg warmer, I believe the temp. was around 49-55 and I had no issues.

Excellent bib short for rides less than 63 miles.

Excellent bib-short for rides 63 miles or less. Comfortable with compression but not too much compression when they fit. However last year I was 15 pound overweight going into the season and these were too tight till I lost the first 5 pounds. Then they fit great.

Great ride comfort & perfect sizing

Purchased when on sale and am glad I did. Ride comfort on par with bib shorts that cost well over $200. And I'm not sure where all the must order one size up sentiment is coming from. I'm 5'11 165 lbs size 31 waist and typically wear Medium for all my clothes, and Medium fits perfectly. I would say these run true to size.

Best chamois ever

Great chamois. Very small fit, order at least one size larger than normal. I'm 5'8 and weigh 150lbs, I normally wear a medium. I purchased a large and they fit VERY snug. I love these bibs, they are great for long days in the saddle.

Great bib for the money

Got these on sale, but even when they are not on sale they are a great bib for the price. I have tried several different brands of bibs and I have found that for me I get the best fit and value from Castelli bibs. The fit is consistent and the quality of their products is always great. I've had a sticker or two come off but for the quality that matters like seems not coming apart or chamois coming separated, Castelli bibs have performed. For me the chamois is the right size and shape and very comfortable.

Castelli knows how to make shorts...

.Great shorts for the long haul over 3 hour rides. Only drawback for me is I have to size up from L to XXL for a good fit.

Good shorts!

These bib shorts are very comfortable with excellent padding. I had to go up a size from what I would consider my normal size but still like the shorts. The shoulder straps are a little narrow but still don't really notice them once I'm riding. If you like Castelli, you'll like these shorts.

Quality Issues ?

Had to return my first pair of these bibs when I noticed the stitching on the front panels was coming apart on my first ride, I have just noticed that the replacement pair has similar issues, with micro holes developing where the side panel meets the front, this time after about 4 uses so am very disappointed. I

I took out my old pair of endurance Bibs (same size) and notice that Castelli changed the design and stitching on the new shorts, the old design had far more robust stitching and mine are sill going strong - bit disappointed in Castelli with regards to these bibs unfortunately they will have to go back again.

Good bibs but run very small

I'm 6'2 178lbs, slim build and skinny climbers legs. I normally wear a large in most bibs. Based on reviews I bought these bibs one size up, XL. I found them to be short in the leg and a bit tight in the straps. They were also almost too compressive. On the plus side, I've ridden with great comfort in them for up to five hours and find the chamois is about the best I've ever ridden (and I own some top line bibs), which is great given the price point. And I like the leg gripper design - rock solid. In spite of the short-comings I really like these bibs and so I ordered another pair in XXL and those fit perfect on all counts. Not sure why Castelli sizing is so far off but once you get the fit right I think these are darn nice bibs and would not hesitate recommending them.

Form fit and race cut, these are the most comfortable bibs in my drawer right now.

The multipanel construction, upgraded fabric and race grade chamois make these my long ride go-to bibs this season. Cut just a tiny bit shorter than most Castelli bibs, these race fit bibs are good on 4 hour rides, just as advertised.

Snug Fit

5ft 10in, 139lbs, 31inch waist, very slender build. Went with a small and the fit can best be described as SNUG. The boys are cramped for space and the leg grippers are a bit tight. If I were to gain 2 - 3lbs this would be uncomfortable to unwearable.

Sizing is the only fault here.
