Product Description

Made of Affinity Lycra. The chamois is Castelli's work horse Kiss and it uses an antibacterial four-way stretch surface material and variable density padding to provide form-fitting comfort and protection. These bibs also feature anatomical 8 panel design, soft touch leg grippers, and reflective dots on the leg.

Strengths:    They look nice.

Weaknesses:    Cheap materials, poor quality construction. Zero durability.

Bottom Line:   
I own five pairs of Castelli Dome bib shorts, which retail for $20 more per pair than the Ergo Due. I have worn and washed these Dome shorts a hundred times each and they are practically like new.
The Ergo Due bib short is Castelli's newest entry-level bib short. These are so cheesy, it's ridiculous. The lycra is much thinner, the Kiss chamois pad is thinner, and the construction quality is terrible. The stitching on the chamois pad completely unraveled on the very first wearing, and the pad completely separated from the shorts. I found black thread wrapped around my rear brake caliper! The shorts went straight into the garbage can after one 40 mile ride. Do yourself a favor-spend a little more money and get better quality.
