    Details

    The emperor's new shorts.

    Rack up the miles like it's your divine right with the masterful details and luxurious fabric of the Castelli Men's Mondiale Bib Short. Incredibly sleek, this bib short improves upon Castelli's impressive Body Paint Bib Short with its Cinquanta fabric and minimalist construction that eliminates irritation. 220 g/m² Cinquanta fabric consists of 50% Lycra for strategic muscle support, form-fitting stretch, and resilient recovery. This impressively soft fabric promotes continuous comfort when you're attacking climbs and completing century rides.

    Constructed with reduced panels and no-sew bonded bibs for the sensation of wearing nothing at all, the Mondiale Bib Short is impeccably sleek and lightweight. Laser-cut holes along the backside of the bib straps promote airy-cool comfort when you're sweating on steep climbs and cranking away through stifling heat. And to prevent the bottoms from riding up, no-sew bonded leg endings use a silicone gripper for a secure fit during fast pedaling movements.

    Sitting atop Castelli's training line, the Mondiale is fittingly equipped with the pro-level Progetto X2 Air chamois. The Progetto X2 Air chamois uses multi-density foam arranged in an anatomical pattern, blissfully conforming to your body for hours of riding comfort. This multi-density foam absorbs unruly vibration that's transmitted through your bike, allowing you to pedal for longer distances without succumbing to fatigue or irritation. It's finished with a four-way stretch micro-denier that's bacteriostatic and highly breathable. Ultimately, this chamois lessens the duress exerted on your body when you're pushing personal limits deep into the pain cave.

    Almost perfect

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    This is the most comfortable bib short I have ever owned....from the waist down. The fabric, the chamois, the fit is perfect. The only negative for this bib is the straps. I have no idea what they are made out of, but the fabric is very coarse. I honestly don't notice on rides, but every time I put it on I think "what the heck is this? sandpaper?". Make the straps out of a more comfy material and it's an easy 5 stars

    Epic Bibs

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large

    Epic bibs: I rode 120mi w/ 10k ft of elevation last weekend in comfort. Castelli straps are made to feel tight because they fit best in the riding position not the standing position. Run slightly small like all Castelli products, but not as small as other Castelli bibs I've owned. My 3rd different Castelli bib model and I like these the best.

    Best bibs ever!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    Expensive but these are my favorite bib shorts of all time. Super comfortable even after a longer ride. Can't say I wold pay full price of almost $300, but getting them at half off for $150 was certainly well worth the money. I usually wear a small but know Castelli products run at least one size smaller so the medium fits perfectly I am 5' 9", 165 pounds with a 32" waist.

    Great fit but. . . Durability?

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XL

    I've been riding on the road for 12 years, gradually increasing mileage each year. Lately riding 100-150 miles per week. Louis Garneau Mondo Evo bibs used to be my go to bibs, then got a pair of the Castelli body paint 2.0's, best bibs I've owned lasted more than 2 seasons and finally ripped at a seam. Wanted to get something similar so tried a pair of Castelli Free Aero Race bibs, great fit but after about 2.5 mos began ripping at a seem, competive cyclist warranteed them, new bibs same style, no problem. In 1.5 mos, had worn through the material at the seat. Warranteed again, upgraded to the Mondiales. Great fit very comfortable, while I was looking at the credit on my credit card statement had already worn thru the material in the seat, 1 month. Warranteed again. 3 weeks into 4th pair, 2nd pair of Mondiales.

    They fit great, no seam design is awesome. The Castelli chamois is great, better than the Garnous chamois which was my go to for four plus years. I hope these one's last a little bit because I love they way they feel.

    Scratchy

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    My only complaint are the straps. The front part of the straps are very rough and scratchy on my shoulders and chest area. The more it is stretched the scratchier it gets. I wore a base layer so it was fine but I don't always want to wear a base but with these I have too. I was expecting more in terms of material and workmanship for the price. I wear a 32 inch waist in slacks and the large fits tight but tolerable. I feel the like the straps are being overstretched and causing my shoulders to hunch over. I think the XL would be better for me.

    Great bib: sub par chamois

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XXL

    The bib size and material is very good. I prefer longer length and these are perfect. But I can't believe this chamois is in a $300. retail bib. It's basically a soft sponge good for short rides only. I've got 3 bibs from that Swiss company; same fit but chamois is far superior. Spend the extra money and enjoy your first 400K brevet.!

    Just fantastic

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XL

    I had purchased a pair of LG carbon bib and they seemed okay until they rubbed a specific (private) part the wrong way and was terrified of it happening again. So I purchased the Mondiale's. At first I thought they were a bit tight but it was just me. The chamois and padding below my seat was great. Extremely comfortable while maintaining strong durability during long rides. These are my go to bib shorts, especially for long rides. Castelli is the best.

    My current go to's

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XXL

    These are my absolute new go to short/bib's. I'm a XXL fit in nearly everything Castelli and these fit true to their sizing philosphy. That being said measure twice and order once. The straps although thin and flimsy have held up just fine and seem to be soft enough that if I'm not wearing a mesh under shirt they won't try and sand my nipples off.

    Castelli amazes.... again.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I was thrilled to put these bibs on and have the familiar feel of the best chamois ive ever used. Please never change it! The look is new to me and I love it. No lines. The fit is everything I expected and am accustomed to. Castelli has done it again.

    Definitely One of the best

    • Size Bought: Small

    I grabbed these bibs to see how they compared to Ra... They are awesome. Great fit, great support. Did a back to back ride with them riding to/from a 4th of July 2-day location and they were amazing. Castelli really has done a great job with their chamois too. Can't recommend these enough. Going to grab some Free Aero Race shorts next.

    Longevity questions

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    First thing you notice when you handle these bib shorts is how thin the straps/suspenders are. They're not stitched at all, but rather a single cut of fabric. I am 5'10" 145lbs and the medium fits lengthwise, but for me there is a little extra room in the leg/groin. I guess I'll have to bulk up. One thing I've noticed is a weird extra flap glued into the inside of the right thigh. I have no idea what it's for...
