Castelli Evoluzione 2 Bibshorts - 2017
While this short sits at the entry level of Castelli’s shorts range, it’s engineered with top-level performance. It starts with the ProDry Soft two-layer fabric that knits a polyester inner layer with a nylon outer layer for exceptional moisture management and durability. Then the side panel and leg ending are extra stretchy for exceptional fit. The KISS Air seat pad is the choice of some of our pro athletes and even sees duty at the Tour de France. Consider this short not as an entry-level short but as your entry to real comfort.
  • New ProDry Soft 2-layer fabric provides exceptional moisture management
  • Anatomic shape with extra-stretch side panel that extends to 360° leg band
  • Bretelle in rete
  • KISS Air seat pad for all-day comfort
  • Reflective tabs
  • Innovative InMold silicone leg gripper with clean edge finish
  • Weight: 177g
Excellent, good fit and comfortable, delivered promptly. As some others have stated go for a size larger than you would normally for a perfect fit.
Excellent bibs! That's when you realize that paying a little extra makes a difference.
Nice bib shorts, bargain at sale price. Fit wise on the small size so maybe up a size if you are unsure
Fantastic product. Great fit as you can really feel how the material is supporting your legs. Pad is excellent and provides great comfort. Pad is also well positioned so you barely know it is there when you are walking around. I would highly recommend, especially as the reduced sale price.
Very good product love the fitting very well made
Firm fabric. Good sewing. The cushion is moderate. I am very happy.
Nice bibs - especially for the sale price. However, the sizing didn't work for me. I'm 6'1" and 185 lbs, so I went with the XL. Still too small. I'm guessing the Castelli sizing guide is a bit skewed to the fast guys.
Excellent. Good fit (Medium size, I have a 32 waist), brilliant padding and very comfortable. Very little movement when riding. Possibly a bit expensive at full price.
Nice product, except the sizes run smaller! I wear an M for DHB and Endura. Bought an M for castelli and it was so... tight...
I bought two pairs of these to replace other aging bibs as my day to day commuting kit. Felt quite snug on first wear after saggy 6 year old kit but well fitted and lovely lightweight material without feeling flimsy. The kiss chamois provides great comfort for my 18 mile trip, expecting it'll be good when I try them on much longer rides too. Love the fluo yellow, very visible. I'm 5'10" and currently 86kg and XL is right for me, spot on when bent over the bike.
For sizing, I'm 170 cm and ~170 lbs. Measurements roughly 38" chest, 32" waist, 38" hip. Tried on the Medium and Large locally, and ordered the Large. I have thick thighs, and the Large provides good compression without being too tight. The strap length is correct for me, and is comfortable both standing and on the bike. I lean toward "race fit" in general, but the Medium was just too tight in the thighs/hips (for me). Chamois is comfortable, we'll see how these bibs hold up after a few miles.
Have a nice feel to them but definitely fit small to the size chart. I am 81 cm waist and inseam, weigh 61 kg and the medium is too tight. Should have gotten a large. Not in the UK so not practical to return.
Considering this is what Castelli call their entry level they are superb. Good quality chamois and great fit but as always with castelli always get a size larger than normal. Also great service from merlin cycles
My 3rd pair of Castelli bib shorts. Same high quality and comfort as the others ( more expensive) only difference which I quite like is that they are not quite as long. As usual I go for large am 1.8m 74kg. Great price
Most comfortable pair of bib shorts I've ever bought, and a perfect fit, can't really say any more than that.
