Pro-level performance at an entry-level price

The Evoluzione 2 shorts may be the starting point for Castelli's line of performance shorts, but these shorts are designed with pro-level performance in mind.

The ProDry Soft 2-layer fabric used through the front and rear panels knit a polyester inner layer with a nylon outer layer, providing added moisture-wicking and durability. Rounding out the feature set is the KISS Air chamois, the choice of many pro athletes riding at the Tour de France.


Features:

  • Claimed weight: 177 grams.
  • ProDry Soft 2-layer fabric provides exceptional moisture wicking and durability.
  • KISS Air chamois.

  • 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.

    Most comfortable shorts i ever ridden with.

    I was so happy with the feel of these shorts I bought a second pair. The KISS system make the feel of the saddle very comfortable. I use these on long road bike rides and on my indoor Spin Bike.

    Good shorts at a good price point

    This is my fourth pair of Castelli shorts, which seem to have lasted for about as long as any other shorts before getting thin places. I agree with other reviewers that these run very small as a larger size is necessary. The picture on the website partly shows the inside of the shorts-there is no red band around the outside on the top. By the way, the little kiss tag on the backside is not too cool, but was easy to cut off.

    Very nice fitting shorts

    I bought these on sale, and have worn them a few times. The fit is great, although I upsized to XL instead of my typical L. I must not have the Italian body type.

    Good value in well-fitting shorts

    I've had mine for about 6 months, probably usedwashed for about 50 rides. These are the favorites, always being the first out of the drawer. They fit very well with no wrinkles and I have no issues with comfort on even the longest rides. With Castelli, I go for one size larger than I use with Pearl. We wash them with cool water, but always line dry. So far the elasticity has held up like new.

    These have quickly become my favorite shorts.

    I purchased these shorts for after work rides (20 to 25 miles). They are now my favorite shorts. Great fit, don't ride up in legs, and great chamois. I plan to order another pair in the near future.

    Great short

    This is my first Castelli short. Its very well made, it should last. The padding is midweight, but was enough for a century. Im looking forward to many rides with these shorts.

    A Disappointment for Castelli Shorts

    I have bought Castelli bike shorts for a number of years and they have always been comfortable and capable of being worn on very long rides. These shorts are, however, a huge disappointment. I have finally figured out what is wrong with them. When the chamois was sewn into the fabric, the stitching starts and stops in a particularly bad spot for me. For about an inch on the front left side of the chamois, the seam is double-stitched (overlapped) and this makes it thicker. It is where, I assume, they were concerned about the stitching staying stitched so it wouldn't unravel. This lump is right where the left side of my pubic area contacts the saddle. It has been bothering me from day one. I thought with a few washings, perhaps it would get better, but it has not improved a bit. I will have to use these shorts for short rides around town or something. They certainly will not be any good for long rides (40-50 miles or more).

    Very comfortable and durable bike shorts

    I bought 2 pair of these shorts - they have become my go-to shorts and I barely wear any of my others. They are comfortable, lightweight and warm in the cooler temps. Padding is generous. Sometimes it chafes a little bit on longer rides, but generally quite good.

    Fit Falls Well Short of Expectations

    This was my first pair of Castelli's, my standby short or bib has been Pearl for year, but always like giving other brands a try. I am 5'9 158 pounds with a 32 waist and looking at the reviews, I thought a large would be the right size. Out of the box, they were extremely tight in the thighs, my thigh is 16 at the base of the short. Everything else felt pretty tight too, but it did loosen up after a few washes. Most shorts are tighter at the base then the rest of the leg to keep the shorts from moving up, but these are equally tight over the entire leg. Not to the point of being uncomfortable though. Where these shorts disappointed me the most is during any climbing at all, the waistline rides down in the back to the point it is almost half way down my rear! There is no drawstring to hold them against the waist. Maybe an XL would fit better, but from a person who has never had a problem with shorts, I'm not going to experiment on them again. They look great, but the only time I wear them is on short rides with my wife.

    Comfortable, nice fit, but started coming apart in just one season

    First pair of Castelli shorts. Really liked them. Even at the entry level pair I found them comfortable on the ride. Longest ride 2.5 hours and no issues. Rotated with a few other pairs of shorts, hand washed for most part. Problem silicone leg grip strip delaminated from the spandex as I put them on for a ride. Returned as was within the year warranty, received a credit. I like them, would like to have a Castelli, but likely need to pay up for a higher level unless they use the same leg grip system on those. Liked the shorts in terms of looks and fit when on the bike (where it counts), but need to have confidence they will hold up.

    Love Castelli products.

    This is the second pair of these that I have purchased. They are very comfortable on long rides. I would highly recommend them. If wear a medium order a large.
