The baggy-short look without the feel, thanks to the slimmer fit and stretch woven fabric. It's ready for long-distance endurance rides, but it's also a great-looking casual short off the bike.
There are those days when a baggy short just seems like the right look. But you always debate whether you're willing to compromise comfort for that look, and you end up wearing Lycra®. Therefore Castelli reached for a stretch woven fabric that gives great stretch but in an unbelievably lightweight yet durable fabric. They gave it a DWR finish so mud and water roll off. The short has two top-opening pockets like jeans so that whatever you put in there won't fall out. The cut is fairly close to the body so you look good off the bike but the short doesn't balloon out when you're on the bike. It all just kinda disappears. The short doesn't have its own seat pad, so wear this over your favorite Castelli short. The Superleggera is a good choice for warmer weather, or the Unlimited if you want the extra pockets.
