As the seasons change, winter ushers in cold temperatures and shorter days. Get the most out of winter by staying protected in the Castelli Sorpasso Women's Tights. As Castelli's top tier women's tight, the Sorpasso features the ideal balance between warmth and anatomic fit.
Made with Castelli's best technologies, the Sorpasso Tights are the ideal all day, cold weather tights. Cut into a woman specific design, the Sorpasso uses a graduated, soft, and non-restricting Thermoflex waist band for extra warmth and comfort around your mid-section. In the tights, panels of Thermoflex stretch to move with you like your summer riding shorts, but with the benefit of giving you cold weather protection. The fleecy inner-lining traps warm air next to your skin to insure you don't chill. Thermoflex Core Due runs along the front of the tights where you're the most susceptible to cold. Utilizing the same stretchy protection as Thermoflex, Core Due has the added benefit of keeping you dry in wet conditions. And regardless of weather conditions, it consistently wicks moisture away from the skin, pushing it to the quick-drying surface of the tights.
Though the warmth of the tights is their stand out feature, Castelli's top of the line Progetto X2 Air chamois is what will keep you wanting to wear the Sorpasso for every ride. The top-layer is comprised of a four-way stretch material that's made to move with you as you ride. And to inhibit bacterial growth, it also has bacteriostatic and microdenier characteristics. A multi-density foam mid-layer, with variable thickness, places padding where you need it most. The bottom viscous layer sits under the ishial and perineal area for added ventilation in these high pressure regions. Combined, these layers work together to keep you riding comfortably on long days in the saddle.
Camlock ankle zippers hold the tights close to your legs so they don't sneak up. The Camlock zippers also let you quickly ventilate by flicking the zipper up and pulling on the fabric. Giro Ankle grippers have also been added to seal around shoecovers, preventing any gap in coverage.
The Castelli Sorpasso Women's Tights are available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large and in the colors Black/white, Black, and Anthracite/white.
I read the review about the big chamois, but decided to try them anyone. The chamoi was big everywhere--front, back, and in the middle. No way was it going to hit any pressure spots. I ordered a small. I'm 5'4", 120 lbs.
Holy moley, the chamois in these tights was HUGE. Don't know if I had an off-pair, but ended up sending these back. Went with the Tenerissimo instead (which aren't water resistant).
