Sorry, this product is no longer available.

It’s all in the fit. The way the Vizio Due short from Castelli holds your legs and backside is amazingly flattering. The 4-needle stitches are positioned to accentuate your shape, and the waistline will never bind. Add in one of the most comfortable pads on the market, and you’re looking at a premier cycling short. Wow!

Almost Great

(Avid Cyclist) July 10, 2013

The seat padding is actually in the right place for me in these shorts - feels funny off the bike, but great while riding when it counts. I did, however, find the front padding to be a little too bulky for comfort. The fabric is nice, as is the waistband, but the leg openings are a little loose causing the shorts to ride up. From the description of the newer model, I'm guessing that this may have been addressed.

Pros
  • Good Fit
  • Dries Quickly
  • Breathable
Cons
Uses
  • Long Rides
  • Road Biking
  • Warm Weather
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels too short

Waist too short

(Avid Cyclist) April 25, 2013

When I tried them on, they fit really well- the legs seemed a little short, but that was fine, and the waist didn't cut into my belly. But when I actually got on the bike, i realized the waist was way too short for my belly. They wouldnt stay up and kept rolling down- very unattractive. In addition, because I had to keep pulling up the waist, it kept pulling up the legs so they were way too short and gave me sausage legs :/

If you have any sort of a belly or a large waist, I would look elsewhere. Other than the waist being too short, they were great shorts!

Pros
  • Good Padding
  • Comfortable
  • Breathable
Cons
  • Short Waist
Uses
  • Long Rides
  • Warm Weather
  • Road Biking
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels too short

Worth it!

(Avid Cyclist) October 31, 2012

Honestly, I'm sort of new to cycling - but the longer my distances become, the more I come back to these shorts. As the other reviewers said, they're very flattering without being too short. Outside of the aesthetic aspect, the chamois in these is AWESOME. I went for a 50 mile ride today, & even without having built up the tolerance in my sit bones, I was comfortable!
Castelli typically runs small, so I was going between an XS and a Small. I wear a 26" waist & am about 5'7 so ended up going with the small - & let me tell you, when I got them it was quite an effort to put them on.
However, they have stretched out the perfect amount and fit me like a glove.
Honestly these are some of the best shorts out there in terms of fit and function, don't hesitate to spend your hard earned money on them - they're well worth it!
Can't wait to buy them in more colors :]

Cons

Soft and comfortable

(Competitive Cyclist) October 10, 2011

I use these for training and love them. There is no binding around the waist or legs. They also wash up well. The fit is true and they are very stylish looking.

Pros
  • Comfortable
  • Good Fit
Cons
Uses
  • Road Biking

These came so close to perfection.

(Avid Cyclist) September 9, 2011

Beautiful knicks that were let down by one critical flaw.
These are the best fitting, best colour (I bought them in red), most comfortable knicks I've ever tried on. But then I looked at myself in the mirror. As I was trying these knicks on for the first time, I had undies on beneath them and I realised I could read the logo on my undies through the knicks. I swung to the side and all the tiny details of my tattoo were perfectly visible. I quickly changed to wearing a g-string (thong) under the knicks and sure enough, perfectly visible bum-crack through the fabric. These (red) knicks are so unbelievably see-through and simply cannot be worn in public.

I'm devastated because I've been looking for red knicks for a while, these look GORGEOUS and it's hard to find knicks that fit me comfortably yet these seemed so do just that. Castelli make such beautiful, high quality products normally so I'm thoroughly disappointed. I'd consider exchanging them for black but there are none left in my size.
(In defence of Castelli though - I bought 8 items of Castelli gear with this order and the rest of the items are spectacular - it's just the red knicks that have let the brand down)

Pros
  • Good Padding
  • Comfortable
  • Good Fit
Cons
  • Transparent
Uses
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length

I really wanted these to fit ...

(Avid Cyclist) July 7, 2011

These are very nice shorts! I ordered them in large following the sizing chart. I had to return them. I might have exchanged for a medium, however, the waist was lower in the front than I like.

Pros
  • Fabulous fabric
  • Good Padding
Cons
  • Poor Fit
Uses
  • Road Biking
  • Waist: Feels too big
  • Length: Feels too short

Love my RED bike shorts.

(Avid Cyclist) May 28, 2010

I have been looking for red bike shorts. These were more than i wanted to spend, however they are well worth the money! The most comfortable short i own. The "no leg grippers" are so comfy and the waist is flattering and comfy too. I was worried that a med. might not fit after reading that they might run small. But they are comfy, stretchy and flattering since there are NO grippers cutting into my legs!
When i get more money together i am ordering a black pair too. Not sure i can go back to all the old shorts i use. They are longer than i usually like to wear...but my b.f. says they look better than the short ones...so whoz gonna argue with the guy riding behind me!!?
