Our review

Well-thought-out, super snug shorts that are a pleasure to ride in

Castelli’s diagonal/curved seams could be thought of as a gimmick, but it can’t be coincidence that the Endurance shorts fit really, really well with no bunching or saggy bits.

  • Highs: Great fit and super comfy pad
  • Lows: Left-handed reflective tab

The construction also includes panels in a more open weave running from the fronts of the legs right around to the small of the back, which contribute useful cooling in hot weather. The pad’s great too: it has multiple thicknesses and densities but gradual transitions between them, so no steps or corners. Again, there’s a reflective tab just on the left leg – most useful in countries that drive on the right.
