Editorial Review from Bicycling Magazine, October 2011 issue
"The Endurance bibs offer much of the same stylish functionality as the brand’s top-of-the-line Body Paint bibs, including the Giro ++ elastic grippers on the leg openings, and Castelli’s patented X2 chamois, which stays comfortable all day. An Italian flag stitched into the bibs’ upper, along with the unmistakable scorpion logo, completes this unquestionably Italian package. The lower portion is carefully constructed to avoid placing seems in places that will bind or pinch, making the Endurance bibs exceedingly comfortable. Pairing these bibs with a complementary jersey will quickly and easily make you the best-dressed on your group ride." by David L’Heureux

Why I choose the Castelli Endurance Bib
I picked the Endurance bibs because it's price, $70 less than Body Paint Bibs and $50 less than Free Aero Race bibs, is the lowest price on a bib with the Progetto X2 pad. The Lycra is incredible, the mesh braces are cool and the Progetto X2 pad seems to disappear from underneath you when you ride.
Bibshorts are found by the majority, if not all, to be the most comfortable option for a riding short - but this relies heavily on getting the right size.

Fabric and construction help set the Castelli Endurance bib apart.
Castelli Endurance bibs and shorts feature Castelli's proprietary Energia and Action fabrics.
Energia is a Power Lycra with horizontal stretch that supports the muscles and aids in recovery. LycraPower® has been scientifically proven to: Reduce muscle vibration, greatly reducing muscular fatigue - enabling a higher level of performance for longer periods, relative to unstabilized musclesImproves cardiovascular efficiency - by increasing blood flow to the heart and reducing the production of lactic acid in muscle tissue.
Aids in the recovery of damaged muscles by reducing swelling, and increasing oxygen flow to area of injury.
Energia fabric also has a ribbed knit surface that aids with aerodynamics. Like a golf ball, irregular surface technology improves aerodynamics and is used in cycling clothing to help riders slice through the wind.
Action fabric is a 210 gram micro-denier, form-fitting Power Lycra with an 80% Nylon and 20% Lycra blend. The strength of Action fabric lies in it's soft feel against the skin, providing complete comfort, combined with it's high abrasion resistance and the durability this provides. This is particularly useful in the saddle contact area of the short.
This Action Micro fabric on the Endurance Bib short has been Prosecco treated to promote speedier evaporation of moisture and keep you dry and comfortable. Prosecco hydrophylic treatment does this by spreading moisture over a larger surface area within the fabric, drawing perspiration away from the body and allowing it to evaporate more quickly.
To further assist with keeping you cool and fresh throughout those long rides this Summer, the upper bib and straps are constructed in lightweight breathable mesh.
All this is held together with 4-needle flat lock stitching, further increasing the comfort and durability of the short.
Let the Endurance bib short help you hold it together - it will undoubtedly increase your own comfort and durability for many a ride to come!_______________________________________________________________________________________________
The Progetto X2 Air Chamois from Castelli
Redesigned for 2012, to make you even more comfortable, the Progetto X2 Air chamois, from Castelli is now cooler and drier. This has been achieved by adding perforations to the comfort layer of the pad, allowing improved ventilation and moisture evaporation. Also, thanks to feedback from professional riders, the shape of the pad has been altered slightly to better fit to the rider shape in the saddle area.
Small steps for the Castelli Technical Team, but a major leap for the comfort of cycling mankind!
Giro3 Single-Layer Engineered Leg Grippers
on the Castelli Endurance Bibshort
Instead of stitching a silicone leg elastic band to the leg of the short, Castelli knit the grip material directly into a 2 inch deep single layer of fabric at the base of the leg. This is then 4-needle flat-lock stitched to the hem for added comfort, with durability.
This 2 inch gripper band has a more gentle compression than traditional leg grippers, whilst securely holding the short in place. This means that it will not bind, or leave that crease you can get on your legs after hours of wear.
The bottom of the leg has a clean-cut edge that will lie flat against the skin, for aerodynamic benefit. This style of leg gripper will still works well with your leg warmers on those cooler days.
Contrasting Castelli word marks are sublimated onto the gripper, and reflective tabs are included at the rear of each leg.
