Dedicated cyclists know no offseason, and if you plan to maintain or improve fitness, maintenance and gains are made during those cold months when freezing temps are the norm. Castelli recognizes the importance of proper winter clothing better than most and creates garments that thrive in those conditions, and one of its warmest tight, the Sorpasso 2 Wind Bib Tight, is another finely crafted chapter in the storied Italian brand's book. It embodies its classic Castelli fit and quality that will keep you motivated to ride through the harsh winter along with technical fabrics to keep you comfortable when most cyclists have committed to the rollers. The Sorpasso 2 Wind Bib Tight takes everything that makes its Sorpasso winter tight excellent and gives it even more firepower against the winter elements. Like the standard Sorpasso, it consists of Thermoflex Core2 at the back of the legs that allow for excellent wicking and breathability. By drawing the sweat away from your skin and transferring it to the back of the garment, out of the way of oncoming frigid wind, it greatly reduces the chilling effect. For the back panel and lower legs, it employs a water-repellent Nano Flex Xtra Dry which provides protection from wheel spray on wet roads. What separates the tight from the standard Sorpasso and is something you're sure to appreciate in blustery conditions is its inclusion of Gore Windstopper X-Fast panels that extend from the waist to just past the knees. This windproof, four-way stretch fabric has a fleece layer that sits softly against the skin. As such, it extends the temperature range of the Sorpasso 2 Wind Bib Tight down to well below freezing, with Castelli recommending it ideal at temps between 23 and 46-degrees Fahrenheit where the standard Sorpasso occupies a milder 41 to 54-degree range. The tight also features a lumbar support pad that helps keep the tight form-fitting around the waist preventing the cold and wind from creeping in beneath your winter jack...
