Probably going to be investing in a 2nd pair of bibs soon (so I don't have to keep washing one pair over and over when I want to go out!) Currently have a pair with the Kiss pad, probably an previous generation of these Just wondering how much of an improvement the Progetto x2 pad is in the top of the range models i.e. At that price point I should really be considering the base level Assos shorts too, but I'm a stickler for Castelli styling :wink:

    Kiss3 isn't a patch on the Progetto. I'd say this is the best pad on the market today.

    I always choose my Aero shorts over the others especially on longer rides.

    Mine is now 3 years old to and still going very strong where as Kiss pads have given out.

    px2 every time, i prefer it to the assos pads

    rather than the aero race, i'd get the body paint bibs, they are the most comfortable i've ever used
    my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny

    Whilst my Aero races are better than my Kiss pad variants, I am now an advocate of Sportful Total Comfort. Same brand and sizing as Castelli but as the name says "total comfort"
