For their lightest-ever road short, Castelli use the first seamless graduated-ventilation stretch woven fabric to make a short that's both impossibly light and cool yet supportive for the longest rides.

4520004-010


Castelli engineered a brand-new fabric using a woven rather than a knit that shaves 30% in weight for the same level of support and non-transparency. Also they worked with the world's leading mill to construct a gradient fabric that becomes increasingly lighter the farther down the leg it extends, with the last part weighing a mere 90 g/m2 compared to normal short fabric, which weighs around 220 g/m2.

This fabric, while being insanely light, maintains a decent durability along with excellent abrasion resistance, at least against the saddle. Of course they cannot guarantee about it against unplanned slides across the asphalt.
Note that while the short saves a mere 48 grams while dry, this means it also absorbs around 30% less moisture when you're sweating. So when you're sweating your way up the Alpe d'Huez you're actually saving closer to 150 grams.

This short doesn't compromise on comfort. Castelli use their top Progetto X2 Air Seamless seat pad, the spectacular striped mesh bibs from the Free Aero Race 4 Bibshort and a flat stretch woven leg gripper to keep everything in place.
