Light, Cool, and Straight Out of the Future

Castelli been pushing the envelope on lightweight shorts since 2011 but have butted up against the limits of compromising durability for ever lighter weight. They needed to step back and find a better way and the result was the Castelli Men's Superleggera Bibshort

Castelli examined what the short really needs to do: it needs to hold the seat pad securely in place while otherwise adding as little weight or fabric as absolutely necessary (without being transparent, obviously), and it needs to last a season of hard use. Castelli engineered a brand-new fabric using a woven rather than a knit that shaves 30% in weight for the same level of support and non-transparency. A gradient fabric that becomes increasingly lighter farther down the leg is one of the many unique features that set this bibshort apart.

This fabric, while being insanely light, maintains a decent durability along with excellent abrasion resistance, at least against the saddle. While, not guaranteed to protect against unplanned slides on asphalt, the fabric offers more than your normal short.

Note that while the short saves a mere 48 grams while dry, this means it also absorbs around 30% less moisture when you're sweating. So when you're sweating your way up the Alpe d'Huez you're actually saving closer to 150 grams.

This short doesn't compromise on comfort. The Superleggera Bibshort utilizes the top Progetto X2 Air Seamless seat pad, the spectacular striped mesh bibs from the Free Aero Race 4 Bibshort and a flat stretch woven leg gripper to keep everything in place.

Features:

  • The premium lightweight hot weather short
  • Gradient stretch woven fabric for minimal weight with optimum support
  • Ultralight fabric to reduce weight by up to 50% while improving durability
  • Minimalist stripe mesh bib to minimize weight and keep you cool
  • Integrated gripper elastic with exposed Lycra® to hold leg in place
  • Embossed logos and stretch silicone scorpion heat transfers
  • Progetto X2 Air Seamless seat pad
  • 20° - 40°C / 68°-104°F
  • Weight:141 g
