Support when you need it, comfort all the time.

Catelli’s Velocissimo Due Bib Shorts hit the sweet spot in Castelli’s line. Never a company to skimp on much of anything, even in its entry-level shorts, Castelli always seems to find a way to pack in more features than we’d expect. And so it is with the Velocissimo Due Shorts. The Velocissimo makes use of Affinity Lycra. Affinity is a soft, smooth, and semi-matte fabric designed to give when you need it to (say, when climbing out of the saddle), and then return to form to keep you supported as the miles tick by.

At the core of the Velocissimo is Castelli’s famed KISS3 chamois. This chamois, long a fixture in Castelli’s line, resists chafing and supports the sit bones. And, unlike some other chamois on the market, it does so without resorting to bulky, diaper-like pads. From the chamois out, Castelli sews the shorts from 10 individual panels of fabric to mimic the contours of the body in the cycling position. This design ensures all-day comfort, as well as the stylish edge Castelli is known for.

  • KISS3 chamois
  • Affinity Lycra fabric
  • Mesh bib straps
  • Giro3 leg grippers

Good fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I was concerned about fit issues -- I'm 6'1", 155lbs and the Large fits perfectly. The straps are not too tight, the leg length and width is just right. Not really worth it at full retail, but kudos to CC for putting these on sale.

Great fitting shorts for the price. Go up a size as they fit small.

Sizing issues

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

I have a pair of Castelli Podium Bibs, size XL, and they have worked great for a few years now, but alas, it's time for new bibs. I bought of pair of the Velocissimo bibs, size XL, and the straps are so short that they give a severe case of man camel toe. So I ordered a pair of XXL and the straps are still too short. I'm 6'5", 190 lbs. I also ordered a pair of Castelli Endurance bibs, XXL, and the Free Aero Race, size XXL. The Free Aero race bibs are the only ones that the straps feel manageable, but I'm not sure if I like that much white on them in the front.

real good bibs

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Height: 6' 2"
    Weight: 195 lbs
    Size Purchased: extra large

typicial Castelli fit, so they run a little small. I'm 6'2", 195 lbs with a 35" waist, so went with the XL and they fit just right.

used them once so far, and they appear very comfortable and move well with you while riding. The chamois is not up to the standard of my free Aero's, but still good.

the side panels include some mesh, which helps with ventilation, but I'll have to see if sunscreen is required when the sun gets higher in AZ!

Nice (slim) fit but firm in the seat

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Quality is reasonably good. Kiss3 Chamois is not generous. If you don't have a good position, you could get damned uncomfortable after 90min or more. Good in hot weather. Launder well. Slim fit means they don't shift around during your ride.

Didn't live up to the hype

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Well made and nice fitting, but bad riding. After an hour or so of riding the rough Texas roads outside of Dallas, I was numb. Needless to say but they went back. Not horrible on short rides, on smooth pavement but terrible on chip seal.

Hi Joel,
If you're experiencing numbness while riding the problem is not the padding, it's your bike fit. You may be using a saddle that is too narrow and/or not angled properly to support your ischial tuberosities (sit bones). Get yourself to a certified fitter quick!

Blech. Worst bibs I've owned

Let me first off say that I've owned bibs and shorts from nearly every maker- including other models of Castelli.

Without a doubt, these just sucked.

Why you ask? The stitching was terrible. After one long ride, the stitching started pulling and coming undone on the thighs. So, I returned them. Got another pair thinking that I'd received a bad pair. You guessed it- next pair, all of the stitching came undone one one thigh and started stretching and coming undone on the other.

I like Castelli, but they have really sacrificed quality on these.

Great bibs

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Only have 2 rides for 40 miles with these bibs, but they are great. Very comfortable chamois that isn't bulky, don't even notice it. I am 5'11" 125 lbs, was in between the medium and large, stuck with the large and they fit great. It is cut low in the front, but my jersey still keeps it covered. Liked them so much bought two more.

Chamois can be better

Overall, I like the fit and materials of this bib. More for warm weather. However, the K3 chamois density thins out in the nether regions so it gets a little uncomfortable after 50 miles. I'm 5'7", 150 lbs and got a L.

Good, but some room for improvement.

Overall I love these bibs. The fit is great and the grip bands on the legs stay where they're supposed to (on a cheap pair of shorts I have the fabric will start bunching up around the leg after a few miles).

The only problem I have with these is they could use a little more padding. As others have stated, they are cut pretty low up front and if you plan on riding 35+ miles, your going to be uncomfortable.

I would defiantly recommend these to a recreational rider but I can't say the same if your one of these guys who do 100 plus miles on the weekends.

hard on the bottom

First let me say that I love the look and the feel of these bib's, but after one 50 mile ride, I had so mant saddle sores that it took a week to heal. So I decided to use them for shorter rides, but had the same result after a 30 mile ride. I am really bumbed-out because per the other reviews I saw, I was hoping for so much more and now I hesitate to believe future reviews. Bottom line is they are hard on the bottom!

Great pair of bibs

Love these pair. bought them based on good reviews. they are very comfortable, support is adequate and hardly bunch up the leg. bought XL, 6', 182lb, 32w.

My First Bib

I gave it 4 stars because it's my first bib and I have no comparison to others. So far, I love it. I'm 5'7" about 145lbs and I wear a medium. Everything is comfortable with the padding in the seat area. What I'm not sure about is how there is minimal padding around the crotch area. It seems as the padding is more towards the rear. Not sure if this is correct, at first I was pulling the padding forward trying to get it more up front then after a couple of rides I just let it go and now don't notice it. I've used it on about 6 rides and there is some fray where the legs rub up against the seat. Not sure if it's from the beginning when I kept adjusting it forward... I have a second pair that I'm going to start using and we'll see if it gets the same wear marks.... Overall... Loving it, just hope they last me a decent while

Great bibs

Very satisfied with these bibs. Fit me very well and are incredibly comfortable on the saddle while still feeling very sleek. Much more padding that other similarly priced bibs and seem to be constructed quite well (time will tell). I'm 5'11" with a 32" waist and went with the mediums. Should note, as others did, the front is quite low and will probably show some mid-section when arms are raised or if your jersey is short. But I actually like the front because it doesn't feel like I'm wearing a diaper.

Great product

Took these on a 45 mile maiden voyage. Nice and ventilated compared to my other Castelli bibs. They are definitely an upgrade compared to the Nero Classic or the podium collections like the Duran. Love the elastic gripper on the leg as the traditional grippers can feel a bit weird. They are cut low in front as one reviewer indicated, but once on the bike they are a perfect fit. Sizing wise, pretty true to other Castelli products. I am 6'1" tall and about 180-185. An xl fits good, perhaps a little loose. To get that true race fit a L would have been plenty big.

Fits small, but great!

I should have spoken to or chatted with a customer service rep before I bought these bibshorts. I am not a big guy...5'11" 180. (I guess for a cyclist I am big.) because I ordered the XL's based on the size chart and they were CRUSHINGLY tight. I utilized the return process (which is exceptionally easy) and got the XXL's. They fit much nicer. The straps are a little loose, but they still fit. Overall this is the most comfortable piece of cycling clothing I own. The legs stay in place, they are well vented, and the KISS chamois is outstanding. I have worn them on rides of 15 miles, 12 miles, and 30 miles and they felt wonderful. I would definitely recommend these shorts to anyone looking for a comfortable setup for their rides. Just make sure to size up before you order.

5'7, 145 lbs, bought the medium. Fit is snug in legs without cutting off circulation, straps a tad short, but I leave them hanging to stretch a bit. Chamois stays in place nicely. I'm keeping them.
