The Castelli Women's Perla Shorts work like a pair of high-tech performance shorts, but they feel like your most comfortable lounge shorts. SoftFlex RS fabric teams up with seamless leg and waist bands and a Kiss3 Donna women-specific seat pad for a focus on comfort. They are great for long training days and prepping for race day.
Nice shorts - the purple is a fun color and is a nice change from black. The fabric is stretchy and comfortable. I have the vizio dues as well and these are comfy and looser though they offer no support. I'd use these for casual rides, the Due's for races.
I useually don't buy clothes for my wife but I took a chance on these and boy did I score. Apparently they are very cute and the waist band is the most comfortable out of any shorts she's had.
Loved the violet color.
Thin material, thin chamois. Might be good for spin class or hot summer days. Not what I want to wear for 3+ hours in the saddle so I returned them.
