Castelli Ladies Mondiale Shorts
Castelli Mondiale Shorts
Bonded legs with silicone grippers ensure that your shorts stay in place throughout your ride. To ensure complete comfort on even the longest of rides, the Mondiale short features Castelli's Ladies specific Progetto X2 Air Donna seatpad. The Progetto X2 is produced using 3 layers, each of which has a very specific purpose. To provide comfort where it's needed most, there is perforated viscous padding at any high pressure areas. Multi-density foam is used to provide variable thickness - padding where it's needed and less where it isn't, to maximise your freedom of movement on and off the bike. Finally, a four way stretch, antibacterial layer allows air to flow into the surface fabric to aid evaporation. Castelli calls this "the most comfortable seat pad on the planet" and we don't disagree! The Mondiale is an outstanding garment, rich in technology and teeming with quality. Regardless of your event or goals, Mondiale shorts are up to the job.

About Castelli Cycling Clothing
Castelli has a rich history as one of the iconic cycling brands, primarily specialising in high end road clothing. Founded by Vittore Gianni in 1876, initially as a tailor shop in Milan, it diversified to include cycling clothing in 1910, for riders such as Alfredo Binda. In 1935 Armando Castelli joined the company, purchasing it 4 years later. Shortly afterwards it began supplying riders such as Gino Bartali and Fausto Coppi. By 1975, it was rebranded to Castelli, featuring the iconic scorpion logo, and shortly afterwards produced many revolutionary clothing products, such as the first lycra cycling shorts, windproof jerseys and thermal cycling clothing. To this day, the brand is synonymous with performance cycle wear, and together with Santini, they supply some of the greatest ex and current cyclists on the planet.
