The Premio bibshort delivers all-day comfort in a minimalist package. True to their heritage, the Premio delivers the highest quality short with trendsetting features. Starting at the straps, Castelli uses a bonded ergonomic strap free of seams for extra comfort, with a large mesh panel to wick moisture away along the length of your back. A 3D mesh compressive support band sits over the lumbar vertebrae.
All-day rides wear down the muscles of your body through micro-oscillations as well as road chatter. The proven Forza fabric is used throughout the thighs and seat of the Premio bibshorts, offering perfect muscle support as well as compression to relieve the stresses on your legs. This short also debuts the future of Castelli’s leg grippers. The raw-edge leg ending uses no elastic of any sort, yet manages to stay planted in place via vertical silicone grippers.
Using the Progetto X2 Air seat pad, Castelli’s top-of-the-line chamois boasts a seamless four-way stretch bacteriostatic layer over a multi-density foam engineered to place the padding where it’s needed most. This chamois keeps fresh cool air flowing directly into the surface fabric, aiding evaporation.
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.
