Castelli have engineered everything in this short to make your longest rides just a little bit more comfortable. Everything Castelli does is geared towards speed, and they know that means doing some long rides. Castelli stay with the proven comfort of the Progetto X2 Air seatpad, use new Endurance Evolution fabric for muscle support, and give the short a perfect eight-panel anatomic fit and their Giro3 leg gripper. Of particular note is the bib construction, which Castelli engineered to accommodate those cyclists whose long rides are primarily to burn calories.
Progetto X2Â Air Seatpad
Maximum technology for supreme comfort; The Progetto X2Â utilises ventilating perforations to keep you cooler and dryer on endurance road rides. The design allows air and moisture to flow directly to the surface fabric for quick evaporation. The shape of the pad has received minor updates based on pro feedback. The Progetto X2Â Air Seatpad is constructed in 3 layer components, each dedicated to a specific purpose to create the most comfortable seat pad on the planet.
1. Skin care layer:Â A four-way stretch, microdenier, seamless, bacteriostatic layer made to adapt to the shape of your body and saddle without any folds in the fabric.
2. Seamless integrated technology cushioning layer:Â Multi-density foam with infinitely variable thickness. The thickness of the pad is engineered to place the padding where you need it most for maximum comfort.
3. Viscous comfort inserts:Â Perforated viscous padding is added under the highly sensitive ischial and perineum pressure areas.
