At Westbrook Cycles, we stock and supply the full range of Castelli Cycling Shorts. These cycling shorts are some of the best designed shorts that we have seen, and they provide comfort, performance and style in equal measure.
Castelli is one of the most innovative companies which design and manufacture cycling shorts, and they were the first company in the world to create the first coloured and aerodynamic cycling shorts. Castelli was also the first company to create the modern bib short, which featured the innovative Y cut seat pad.
Cycling Shorts are almost vital for every journey above a couple of miles, with the comfort on your rear end being taken care off by padded shorts, rather than a comfortable bike saddle. As well as ensuring you remain comfortable, cycling shorts are also designed with breathable fabrics, which wick sweat away from the surface of your skin - to the exterior of the short where they are easier to evaporate.
Castelli Cycling shorts are some of the most thoughtfully designed on the market - and they typically have a design which has been optimised for riding positions, meaning they have been designed to move with your body in the saddle, and they have high waistbands and panel construction for complete comfort. Flat seams are also used wherever a seam is required, to lessen the risk of chafing and discomfort. Padding is used to protect your sensitive areas from the rigours of riding, and the pads in the cushioning vary - and can be made from foam or gel.
There’s many different versions and models of cycling shorts available, with regular shorts and Bib Shorts both being popular choices. These shorts are the choice of professional racing teams, such as Sky.
One of the most popular Bib Shorts within the range is the Endurance 2 which uses the incredibly popular Progetto X2 Seamless seat pad - in conjunction with the Giro3 leg grippers. The shorts also provide good levels of compression, and good levels of moisture management to keep you both dry and comfortable.
You can view the full range of Castelli shorts above, and as always - if you have any questions about the collection, please get in touch and we will be more than happy to help. All of the above shorts have been discounted wherever possible, and payment instalments are also available.
