    A warm introduction.

    In Castelli's world, entry level kit means something a bit different than what you might've been conditioned to think. Instead of ill-fitting garments made with low-end materials and few comfort-enhancing extras, kit like the Castelli Evoluzione 2 Short gives new riders a warm introduction to the world of cycling shorts. If you're self-sponsored and newly indoctrinated to the sport of skinny tires, the Evoluzione 2 will leave little to be desired as you build mileage and get to know your bike.

    The Evoluzione's Kiss Air chamois may not offer the same featherweight silhouette as its higher-end siblings, but its rolling topography and plush cushioning provide the support you need to tackle longer rides and new routes without compressing after only a few miles. Day in and day out, the short's stabilizing, breathable nylon and polyester fabric blend move with you without stretching or bunching in the saddle, as it employs the same impeccable fit used throughout Castelli's illustrious line.

    • An entry-level bib short that doesn't sacrifice in comfort
    • Form-fitting cut follows your movements in the saddle
    • 2-layer ProDry Soft fabric rapidly transfers moisture
    • Extra-stretch side panel rolls out to a 360-degree leg band
    • Airy mesh bib sits subtly under a jersey
    • KISS chamois cushions and supports your sit bones
    • Reflective accents help you stay visible to motorists
    • Item #CST00FY

    Great fit but beware quality issues

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    When I first got these and tried them on, I though they were the perfect pair of bike shorts. The fit was great and the padding stayed put where it needed to and didn't move around. However, in 10 days the elastic "leg gripper" ring on the cuff of the right leg started to come off. It looked like a stirrup hanging off the leg opening. I had only washed a couple times according to the directions so it was clear to me that it was some type of manufacturing defect. I returned these as defective and purchased the "Race Aero" version of the shorts which does not have the leg gripper band. The Race version is considerably more expensive but also a great pair of shorts. To me, the fit and feel of the Evoluzione was just as good, and I would have preferred it at the price point, but I probably won't buy another pair for fear of the elastic separation happening again.

    Good product

    Very nice. Well made. For me, the shorts are a little tight, especially around the leg grippers. Maybe a few more rides and washings will loosen them. I got a size L, and I'm about 5'11" and 165 lbs.
