been using to pairs of castelli endurance for around 2 years and i think its time to get two new pairs, i was wondering if any one went from the endurance to the velocisimo model and could give me their take \, the question is, should i stick with the castelli endurance or move down, thanks

How about adding the Assos S5 Uno in there as an option.

Hey Norbs,

I use both the Castelli Velocissimo and Endurance as well as the Aero Race bibshorts. The Endurance model has heavier, more compressive fabric panels than the Velocissimo and it uses the thicker, better Progetto pad. I use the Velocissimos for shorter and warmer rides, but for longer days or events, I'm wearing the Endurance or the Aero Race bibs. And for only about $20 more, I think the Endurance model is a much better purchase.

Chris

I´ve recently gotten a pair of castelli bibs with the progretto x2 pad. After more than 10 years of solely using Assos bibs I am a reformed man. I switched from Fizik Arione to the Kurve Bull and from Assos S5 pad to Castelli Progretto X2 and I have NEVER EVER been more comfortable... I´m simply amazed of how good I am seated nowadays compared to before... Even if I use Assos S5 with the Kurve its not even close to the castelli in comfort....

Somewhat relatedly, I have had the Endurance and recently got the basic "Ergo Tre" -- and was surprised how nice the latter is. Really good value.
