Keep Cool Like Never Before

The Castelli Illusione Short makes you rethink what you thought you knew about women's cycling gear. A fluid black-and-white stripe pattern brings a masterful design to one of the best shorts to date. With its incredibly soft fabric, articulated waistband, and lie-flat leg grippers — this short is comfortable for even your longest rides.

The key to the short's comfort is the Invita Strong fabric. This luxuriously comfortable cotton-like material is more durable than you'd expect, and even provides excellent stretch and return for fantastic muscle support in the saddle. The waist has been built with an articulated design to lie flat without binding. The high-quality scorpion silicone dot grippers keep the leg in place without compressing too much.

You'll be riding on the KISS Air2 Donna pad, so you know you'll be comfortable. The Women's Illusione Short features one of the best pads that Castelli has ever created, allowing for support that goes the extra mile without any excess bulk. When it comes to a great ride, treat yourself to the shorts that get the job done in style.
