Competizione Limited Edition Short

With the Competizione Shorts, pro-level Castelli quality need not come at a pro-level price tag. The Competizione features much of the same technology as their higher-end offerings, like a KISS Air2 insert and Giro4 leg grippers, making it comfortable for long and short rides alike. The main panels use Castelli’s Vortex fabric for optimal breathability and comfort, while inside of the legs are a tighter Lycra for better compression, stretch, and rebound, where there’s more movement when pedaling. The KISS Air2 insert’s perforated padding and seamless upper keeps cool air moving through the short to ensure your comfort on the bike.

  • A short with pro-level comfort at self-sponsored pricepoint
  • KISS Air2 chamois provides comfort for long and short rides
  • Affinity Pro Lycra offers stretch and rebound needed for optimal comfort
  • Bibless design simplifies summer layering and nature-breaks
  • Item #CSTZ7CH

Just received my new Castelli Competizione Limited Shorts. Absolutely love these things! This is my first Castelli shorts purchase but certainly will not be the last. I've purchased several other Castelli products from our friends here at Competitive Cyclist and all have been Top Shelf! The quality is superb. Several other reviewers have mentioned a snug fit with Castelli. I would agree but not way out of line. I'm 5'9" and currently weigh 165.8lbs. These shorts fit stug but are very comfortable. I would describe it as an "Aero" fit. Not loose or baggy. The color and overall quality is certainly Pro Level! Highly Recommend!

I love these shorts. I’ve been a Pearl Izumi short guy for a long time. ( I still like them) but I thought I’d venture out and try a different pair. I’m 6’ 3 , 185 lbs. skinny legs and as my wife says - ‘assless’. Lol. That being said … I usually go size: medium - When the shorts came I was like “ uh oh” I may have ordered a bit too small. BUT … When I put them on? Magic! The shorts fit like the suit on Spider-Man ! Like a glove! Love them. I’ve put about 500 miles on the shorts so far and … I give them a letter grade of ‘A’. It’s true you get what you pay for. They’re worth it and… they look good. Functionally, I’ve had thicker and thinner pads … these work pretty good. Meaning - yesterday I put in 50 miles in 95 degree heat with 4000’ elevation gain here in Colorado and … and my little tush feels just fine! Ta da! Highly Recommend… Dave, Colorado

Nice shorts but the sizing is way off

I'm usually a large in most shorts. I sized up to XL as these "ran small" and an XL was supposed to fit a 36.6in waist and I'm about 35". I didn't even have to get them out of the bag to know they weren't going to fit. The waist is several inches smaller than my other size L shorts. So "runs small" actually means off by over a full size. Interestingly I also bought a set of their bibs in XL which are snug but fit. Maybe it's just that the shorts are tighter around the waist.

my experience exactly! same height and weight as you - saw the waist in person when I opened the package and thought it must be one of the leg holes! wouldn't have been able to get them on if I tried.

Most expensive shorts i've owned, but worth the price. I'm 73" 170 lb. bought large. Seem perfect for me. they're snug and supportive. They are easy to forget about when riding; no chafing or other unpleasantness. Just what they should be. also very lightweight. I've used them for a couple of months.

These shorts fit a bit tight, but they are very comfortable all around. I also purchased the Castelli Rosa Giro Race Jersey and it has become my favorite shirt. As a matter of fact, this is my favorite biking outfit overall.

No way this is a Medium size

Fit:
Runs small
Size Bought
M

I have a 32" waist so ordered a pair of these in M size. I could barely get these up my legs, let alone around my waist. I doubt they even equated to an S size. The shorts themself look nice and are well made. I'm afraid to order a large size because they may not even be big enough given how undersized the Medium size was.
