Ride longer, ride faster.

Castelli's Men's Endurance X2 Short is designed for the long ride and the longer ride. Made from Endurance Evolution fabric, it provides optimal muscle support and wicks moisture, keeping you dry in nearly all riding conditions.

Castelli's Progetto X2 Air chamois offers exceptional long-distance comfort and excellent airflow. Lie-flat leg grippers keep the shorts where you want 'em, and rear reflective tabs provide extra visibility. Heat transfer Castelli logos on the thighs.

Note: Castelli tops and bottoms are designed with a performance cut that often runs smaller than that of other manufacturers. Consider sizing-up one size to ensure a comfortable fit — e.g., if you normally wear a Medium, select a Large in Castelli. Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

Product quality is nice but dissapointed in fit proportions

Road cyclist. Went up a size to get XL (I am 33 in. waist). Fit well around waist and butt however the bottom of the short leg was quite loose around the thighs. Not acceptable fit for a pretty high end short so I returned them. Return handled well. Must be designed for slim Euro dudes with big legs.

Shorts run small, so I sized up one size. Shorts and chamois mold to the body to provide a comfortable ride with full cushioning. Also, the shorts wick sweat away from the body amazingly well...

I recently used these for a century ride and they were very comfortable. But they run small. I had to return a Large and re-order an XL when the sizing chart indicated a Large.

I really like these but the size chart isn't really accurate. I'm 180 with a 33 waist and after trying a large I had to send them back and get X large for a proper fit.

Still a great short!

Castelli has changed the design and the new design is too tight.

It was a sad day when Castelli changed the design of these shorts. I have always fit great in the large size. Now I can not get into even the 2 XL. The new fabric has no give to it.

Does Not Fit like the Velocissmo
rating
by Michael
Cycling Enthusiast
Mount Shasta, CA

I have been buying the Castelli Velocissmo short for years and really think it hits the value/comfort mark. I usually get a couple seasons out of a pair in heavy rotation with a couple other pairs and thought to upgrade to the Endurance X2 on the last order. While this is still a very nice pair of shorts, I don't find them any more comfortable than the Velocissmo. But of particular consideration for some people is that the Endurance Short runs about a 12 size smaller than the Velocissmo. So if you ever found yourself in the middle of some sizes this may be a plus for you. But if you are a solid medium, for example, in the Velocissmo, you might want to size up if you want to try this one.

Best shorts. Size up.

The material used in these shorts is the best of all the shorts I own. The pad is good too, but its the quality and feeling of the material that really stand out.

I have a 32-33 waist and am a solid medium everywhere else. In these, the L waist was a little snug at first, but fine. The cuffs are also a tiny bit loose, but its no big deal.

Spectacular Shorts!!
rating

Wow! For me these are the most comfortable shorts I wear. I have migrated over to bibs (for me even more comfortable), but these shorts make my rides comfortable and more pleasant. Castelli stuff does run seem to run SMALL. I order one to two sizes larger than typical US sizing standards. For example, a medium Pearl Izumi short fits me like an extra large from Castelli. Castelli is now my brand of preference. I highly recommend Castelli and I will be buying more of their cycling kits.

Sizing runs way small
rating
by Scott

I started with a medium, which I wear in some brands, but exchanged them for an XL. Those were still too small, and I didn't even think that the largest size available (XXL) would fit so I returned them. Other than that they were very well made, stylish, and were delivered on time. i wish they would have fit...

The are by far the best bike shorts that I have owned. They are comfortable appear durable. The fabric is a little different than my normal shorts but I like it better. Definitely go one size larger. I am a solid medium in everything else but a large in these.

I am 6 ft. tall, 190 lbs, and have normal body proportions. These shorts run a size too small. They are tight in the legs, but not too tight for cycling. The chamois has a nice feel for extended rides, but I don't think it comes up quite high enough in the front. My main dislike is that it is shorter at the waist than it should be. I have to make sure I wear one of my longer jerseys unless I want my stomach to show.

I have found the Castelli shorts to be far more comfortable than others I have worn. They do run about a size smaller than others. These provide more compression on my legs which helps on longer rides.

The original examintion made me think the chamois was too thin. However after several rides the chamois out performs all previous shorts I have purchased.
