Made from Castelli’s Thermoflex fabric, the Women’s Velocissima Bib tights have a luxuriously thick and warm brushed fleece inside, keeping you cosy while at the same time ensuring perspiration escapes to leave you dry and perfectly comfortable. Not only that but the combination of Thermoflex and fine Castelli tailoring allows you the total freedom of movement needed for smooth and powerful pedalling. Mesh bib straps, cut wider across the bust for comfort, ensure moisture has an easy escape route as you work up a sweat and ankle zips make getting the tights on and off easier. All the details are there for comfort and performance. Inside the Women’s Velocissima is the outstanding KISS Air2 Donna seat pad, a female-specific pad taking as many features and comfort as the top-of-the-line Progetto X2 seat pad but at a more affordable price. A seamless and super soft, brushed microfibre top maximizes comfort and fit. It’s flexible to move with you and a bacteriostatic treatment helps stop saddle sores and infection. Dual-density and infinitely variable thickness foam give you the perfect cushioning for every part of the pad -maximum thickness and density in the ischial zone, tapering to moderate thickness in the perineum, and minimum thickness at the perimeter. Great winter cycling kit doesn’t have to be wildly expensive, Castelli have got all the details right while still offering incredible value, making the Women’s Velocissima Bib tights a winter winner in our books.
