There's a die-hard pro-bib faction out there, but there's a growing group that contends that bibs aren't really cut out for ladies in the first place. If you're not into the slightly tweaked men's bibs that are marketed as female-specific gear, the Castelli Velocissima Women's Shorts might be right up your alley. They're a straightforward short, without bells and whistles but with a thoughtful design and convenient features to keep you rolling in comfort on short, medium, and long-distance rides. The heart of the Velocissima is the Endurance Evolution fabric, which provides compressive support to reduce muscle fatigue and manage moisture. Not only will you feel cooler and drier, but your muscles won't fatigue as quickly, so your 100-miler will feel like a 75-mile cruise. Just as key is the KISS4 Air Donna chamois, a women's-specific pad designed to eliminate pressure points and provide extra padding in key areas. Castelli finished the Velocissima off with flat-form waist paneling for a comfortable fit around the waistline and a Giro3 elastic-free leg gripper that helps eliminate pinching and rubbing.
