While this short sits at the entry level of Castelli’s shorts range, it’s engineered with top-level performance. It starts with the Pro Dry Soft two-layer fabric that knits a polyester inner layer with a nylon outer layer for exceptional moisture management and durability. Then the side panel and leg ending are extra stretchy for exceptional fit. The KISS Air2 seat pad is the choice of some of our pro athletes and even sees duty at the Tour de France. Consider this short not as an entry-level short but as your entry to real comfort.
