The premium all-conditions short: Castelli Premio Black Bibshort
The first thing you might notice is what's missing: the seams and multiple panels. Castelli has engineered a new fabric that changes depending on the needs over various parts of the body. The lower leg has a raw-cut leg ending and rubberized yarns to guarantee a flat grip to keep the leg in place. The fabric becomes lighter in the thigh, while the four-way stretch provides just the right amount of muscle support.
In the pelvis area, the compression and support increase to keep the seat pad and everything else in place, and the fabric gets thicker to avoid any embarrassing transparency issues. With this magical fabric Castelli doesn't need to stitch separate panels together, which ensures more comfort and a better fit, as well as a sleek, sophisticated look.
Castelli has developed a new bib strap as well. It's cut from a single piece of fabric that has enough modulus (return) to hold your shorts up without needing extra edge trim that cuts into your shoulders. In addition Castelli has perforate the fabric to keep it cooler.
The seat pad is the top-of-the-line Progetto X2 Air Seamless pad. It's actually two separate components: a soft, stretchy Skin Care Layer next to your skin, which has the sole purpose of preventing any rubbing on your skin, and, under that, the Cushioning Layer, which features two separate densities of foam along with breathable perforated gel inserts under the ischia bones and perineum.
Castelli has carried the less-is-more theme into the design, with minimalist laser-etched logos and subtle finishing. It looks as premium as it feels. You can tell that every component, every stitch, every detail has been obsessed over. This makes the Premio Black the absolute premium bib shorts.
