Castelli Volo Cycling Bib Shorts - SS19
Only one rider gets to cross the line first. In Castelli's race short line-up, of course, that’s the Free Aero Race, but this Volo short was made to be a close runner-up. Volo, as in Italian for “I’m flying,” is meant to be the workhorse of race shorts. It’s got outstanding fit, Castelli’s excellent 200+ gram Affinity Lycra®, the updated KISS Air seat pad that’s the choice of a number of pro riders and the exceptional GiroAir leg gripper.
KISS Air seat pad for all-day comfort
Affinity Lycra® fabric on inside of leg for outstanding stretch and rebound
Affinity BLC textured fabric on legs for better aerodynamics
Giro air engineered mesh gripper
Reflective detailing on back
Mesh straps for comfort and breathability
Weight: 165g (large)
Great fitting shorts at a fantastic price. Not too long in the leg and the kiss 3 pad is perfect for the longer rides.
Super comfortable , excellent for longer rides, superb quality.
These are my third pair of Volo shorts and I have found them to have a comfy chamois and relatively good durability for a Castelli product.
I have another pair of these and the KISS pad is very comfortable. Size XXL perfect for 6’ 106kg wear a 38” jean for more leg room. This makes them tight but perfect.
Great fit, comfortable shorts. My go to set for commuting and longer rides.
Typical Castelli perfect fit and comfort, but know your size, normally 1 size bigger than normal.
As with most bike-related things, clothing is subject to personal preference. However, for me, the Castelli Volo bibs are perfect. Importantly, Castelli makes sizes for big people. Also, the fit and materials are commensurate with much more expensive shorts. Lastly, I find the Castelli chamois to be very comfortable on long rides. All-in-all, highly recommended.
Such a good bibs and with KISS pad this is just what I was looking for winter indoor rides. Always going for XXL in castelli shorts while being 180cm and some mileage in my thights.
Fantastic - these are my second pair. Great pad, good leg grippers and very comfortable all round. Shoulder straps are a little tight when new but they will settle in - I'm 6ft, 74kg and bought mediums
Very good bibs short. Very good for the long rides. It feels so comfortabele riding with this bibs.
Very good quality. Size large is fit perfect for me. Very fast delivery always from Merlin.
Look pro and feel super comfortable. Also great for summer wear. Not the cheapest, but it's an upmarket garment.
Nice fit and comfortable pad.
