The Mondiale from Castelli is the creme de la creme of bib shorts for female riders, with an ‘insanely soft’ 50% lycra fabric construction, minimal seams, a pro-quality chamois and splittable straps for super convenient nature breaks… we challenge you to find a more luxe women-specific bib short!
The Mondiale is specifically designed to offer unwavering comfort on long day rides where you will be in the saddle for 5 hours plus. Several aspects of its highly engineered design contribute to this: there are just two seams in the whole construction of the short, limiting potential chafing, and the bib straps are 3D shaped where they sit across the upper back for a superior fit, with laser cut holes providing better ventilation. Castelli have fitted the Mondiale with the proven and reliable Progetto X2 Air Donna seat pad, which provides pro-level support and comfort, whilst reinforced side panels provide additional support as well as creating a flattering silhouette. The shorts have lie-flat leg endings finished with silicone gripper to keep them in place across your thighs.
If you’re looking for the ultimate in comfort, whether for regular club riding, training or racing, you really can’t go wrong with a pair Castelli Mondiales - and whilst your bank balance won’t thank you for investing in them, you won’t regret getting hold of a pair once they really begin to justify themselves after a few hours of working hard in the saddle.
