Pro-level performance at an entry-level price

Whether you're just looking to get started or you need to replace your daily riding shorts but you don't want to spend an arm and a leg, the Evoluzione 2 half short from Castelli is a great choice.

Drawing inspiration from their top-of-the-line apparel, the "entry-level" label doesn't begin to do this short justice. Featuring ProDry Soft 2-layer fabric throughout the front and rear panels for exceptional moisture-wicking, a polyester inner layer is knitted with a nylon outer layer for a lightweight, durable fabric. The KISS Air chamois will keep you riding in comfort all day, just like it does for some of the pro riders putting in the miles at the Tour de France.

Still think it's just an entry-level short? Think again, because he Evoluzione 2 is evolution at work and an essential for any training kit and apparel rotation.


Features:

  • Claimed weight: 177 grams.
  • ProDry Soft 2-layer fabric provides exceptional moisture wicking and durability.
  • KISS Air chamois.

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.

Very comfortable and durable bike shorts

I bought 2 pair of these shorts - they have become my go-to shorts and I barely wear any of my others. They are comfortable, lightweight and warm in the cooler temps. Padding is generous. Sometimes it chafes a little bit on longer rides, but generally quite good.

Fit Falls Well Short of Expectations

This was my first pair of Castelli's, my standby short or bib has been Pearl for year, but always like giving other brands a try. I am 5'9 158 pounds with a 32 waist and looking at the reviews, I thought a large would be the right size. Out of the box, they were extremely tight in the thighs, my thigh is 16 at the base of the short. Everything else felt pretty tight too, but it did loosen up after a few washes. Most shorts are tighter at the base then the rest of the leg to keep the shorts from moving up, but these are equally tight over the entire leg. Not to the point of being uncomfortable though. Where these shorts disappointed me the most is during any climbing at all, the waistline rides down in the back to the point it is almost half way down my rear! There is no drawstring to hold them against the waist. Maybe an XL would fit better, but from a person who has never had a problem with shorts, I'm not going to experiment on them again. They look great, but the only time I wear them is on short rides with my wife.

First pair of Castelli shorts. Really liked them. Even at the entry level pair I found them comfortable on the ride. Longest ride 2.5 hours and no issues. Rotated with a few other pairs of shorts, hand washed for most part. Problem silicone leg grip strip delaminated from the spandex as I put them on for a ride. Returned as was within the year warranty, received a credit. I like them, would like to have a Castelli, but likely need to pay up for a higher level unless they use the same leg grip system on those. Liked the shorts in terms of looks and fit when on the bike (where it counts), but need to have confidence they will hold up.

Castelli designs great cycling clothes period. Of course as a long time supplier to the professional peloton their high end stuff is pricey. But even their lower price clothes is better than most other brands. The Evolutione 2 short is a great example of quality ata good price, even better on sale. You could spend more for lesser quality tha these shorts.

I am a Castelli fan for it's always great design and quality. These cycling shorts are in the same quality mold as Castelli's other cycling clothing. Castelli can be pricey so when their stuff is on sale I get it. And I always go up a size on their clothes.

I was so happy with the feel of these shorts I bought a second pair. The KISS system make the feel of the saddle very comfortable. I use these on long road bike rides and on my indoor Spin Bike.

This is my fourth pair of Castelli shorts, which seem to have lasted for about as long as any other shorts before getting thin places. I agree with other reviewers that these run very small as a larger size is necessary. The picture on the website partly shows the inside of the shorts-there is no red band around the outside on the top. By the way, the little kiss tag on the backside is not too cool, but was easy to cut off.

I bought these on sale, and have worn them a few times. The fit is great, although I upsized to XL instead of my typical L. I must not have the Italian body type.

I've had mine for about 6 months, probably usedwashed for about 50 rides. These are the favorites, always being the first out of the drawer. They fit very well with no wrinkles and I have no issues with comfort on even the longest rides. With Castelli, I go for one size larger than I use with Pearl. We wash them with cool water, but always line dry. So far the elasticity has held up like new.

I purchased these shorts for after work rides (20 to 25 miles). They are now my favorite shorts. Great fit, don't ride up in legs, and great chamois. I plan to order another pair in the near future.
