Castelli made the Competizione Short to incorporate as much technology as possible from their top-of-the-line pro-level race shorts at a more accessible price. And although it's certainly capable of weekend racing, it's also a great comfort performance short even if you never pin on a number. The main Vortex textured fabric and the Giro4 leg gripper come straight from Castelli's top Free Aero Race 4 Bibshort, while the KISS Air2 seat pad has most of the comfort of their top seat pad but represents maximum value. The intangible part that you'll appreciate most is Castelli's knack for building in perfect fit, thanks to their pattern engineering team. This is the short that brings the best of Castelli's know-how in building comfort performance shorts into an accessible product in your cycling wardrobe.


  • KISS Air2 seat pad for all-day comfort
  • Affinity Pro Lycra fabric on inside of leg for outstanding stretch and rebound
  • Vortex BLC textured fabric on legs for better aerodynamics
  • Giro4 leg gripper with raw edge for comfort and silicone stripes for grip
  • Flat-lock stitching
  • Reflective detailing on back
  • 59 - 95°F (15 - 35°C)

Castelli Men's Competizione Short (Black) (M)
Purchased a pair of these shorts about a year. I was very happy with them having been so disappointed with Pearl Isuma.
I just happened to see a sale recently and brought 2 more. Very comfortable especially the chamois.

These are now my favorite shorts. For many years I've worn pearl Izuma shorts, They made some changes and I looked around and switched to these. Very happy with these shorts.

Castelli Sizing: Many Castelli products are designed with a European race-fit. It is not uncommon to size up one or two sizes for the right fit.

Note: All measurements are provided by the manufacturer and may vary depending on how measurements are acquired. Castelli instructs that for best results measurements be taken over underwear. Castelli recommends sizing up if measurements fall between sizes for a better fit.
