Castelli - Velocissimo IV
The Castelli Velocissimo IV Bibshort has been developed with all-day comfort in mind, offering a slick design packed with features in a great value package.
- Anatomically constructed for exceptional fit and comfort in Pro Dry Soft fabric
- Doppio waistband for extra stretch around the stomach area
- KISS Air2 seat pad for all-day comfort
- Raw-cut leg ending with silicone vertical gripper keeps short leg in place without pressure
- Flat-lock stitching ensures superior comfort
The bibshort is constructed of a ProDry Soft two-layer fabric that knits a polyester inner layer with a nylon outer layer for exceptional moisture management and durability. It features an anatomical shape that moves the stitching away from areas likely to cause irritation. Castelli have also been able to eliminate the elastic band around the end of the leg by borrowing technology for the range-topping Premio bibshort and instead relying on vertical bands to hold the legs in place. These provide maximum freedom of movement and comfort and are barely noticeable. The Velocissimo also features Castelli's new Doppio waistband, which provides additional support, comfort and extra stretch around the stomach. Reflective heat-transfer strips on the back of the legs aid low-light visibility and help to keep you safe out on the road.
The Velocissimo IV also features a KISS Air2 seat pad, the choice of some of Castelli’s pro athletes and even seen at the Tour de France. The pad aims to incorporate as many of the features and comfort as Castelli’s top-of-the-line Progetto X2 Air seat pad but at a more affordable price. The pad has a super soft, brushed microfiber top that maximizes comfort and fit while its seamless engineering eliminates chafing and abrasion. Dual density and infinitely variable thickness give you the perfect cushioning for every part of the pad. The maximum thickness and density in the ischial zone tapers to moderate thickness in the perineum, and minimum thickness at the perimeter. The pad has also undergone a bacteriostatic treatment to help avoid saddle sores and infection.
