On their quest to give us their most luxurious and comfortable high performance bibshorts yet, Castelli has developed the Mondiale bibshort. Designed to keep you happy mile after mile, hour after hour, the Mondiale is a garment so comfortable that you'll barely know you're wearing it.
Building on the success of their Body Paint range, Castelli has taken this single seam construction and improved it. For the Mondiale bibshort, all seams but one have been eliminated. The single seam, on the main body, has been taped to ensure there is no irritation. The luxurious new Cinquanta fabric contains 50% Lycra and follows your body's every movement, whilst providing excellent muscle support. For the ultimate in comfort and ventilation, the bib features no-sew, bonded straps with a 3D shaped upper back yoke and laser cut ventilation holes. 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 Free Mondiale bibshort features Castelli's Progetto X2 Air 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 bibshorts are up to the job.
With roots dating back to 1876, Castelli has been at the forefront of fabric technology for almost 40 years. Alfredo Binda, Gino Bartali, Fausto Coppi, Jacques Anquetil and Louison Bobet were but a few of the legendary athletes clothed by Castelli. More recently, Bernard Hinault wore the first windproof jersey when he won Fleche Wallone. Castelli made that too!
