Why We Like The Endurance 3 Bib Short

The Endurance 2 Bib Short from Castelli combines its much-lauded Progetto X2 Air Seamless chamois for all-day riding comfort with the amazingly luxuriously Giro3 lie flat leg gripper at the openings keeping the hem locked in place. It's constructed of its Endurance Evolution fabric that sits softly against the skin while supporting the muscles with optimal compression that's further complemented with textured compression side panels. It also helps keep you cooler and drier thanks to its excellent wicking properties and superior moisture management. This bib is always up to the task of providing riding comfort on you hardest and longest training rides.

Castelli updates the bib strap construction with mesh back and straps that's designed to keep you cool on those extended summer climbs. Its embossed Castelli wordmark adds a touch on elegance and is well recognized among discerning cyclists. The Endurance 2 Bib Short is available in the colors Dark Steel Blue and Black and in 6 sizes from Small-3XLarge.

Castelli never disappoints. However, sizing can run a bit on the snug side. I'm 5'10" and weigh 157 pounds but have big thighs. A large is just right but takes a bit of finesse to put on. Rolling the leg grippers inside out when putting the shorts on and then rolling them down eases stress on the fabric. Once they're on they fit perfectly. The chamois is super comfortable and the overall quality of construction is great. Highly recommended!

I know that bibs are supposed to fit tight but these were so tight/stretched when I put them on that they were nearly see through in some areas. They run small, even for Castelli.

The Castelli Progetto X-2 air chamois with a race fit has become my go-to, so I expected to be happy with these. I was not disappointed - they fit like a glove, the materials are quality, and the dark (Saville) blue was a nice little change-up from my usual black. I haven't ridden these yet, but I don't need to - the first try-on told me all I need to know. For me, the fit was spot-on. XL is my default for Castelli gear, and this hit right on the head. If you're looking for relaxed fits, Castelli is not your brand. These are meant to be snug, and fit best when actually in riding position. Although I wear a "L" in casual clothes, I gave this a "true to size" as it's right on for Castelli - fully consistent with all the other pieces I have.

I typically wear Med/Large in street clothes, but XL in cycling clothing (5-11", 180lbs), but even the 2XL in these bibs felt very tight around my thighs, which I think are fairly normal size. These bibs must be made for people that like things super snug.
