If you step outside this winter, and your eyes don't immediately water from the cold, then it's knicker weather. There's no need to suffocate your legs with full-length tights if Old Man Winter is only a little grumpy. So, when you get a welcome break in the bone-chilling monotony of winter, slip on the Castelli Tenerissimo 2 Knicker for your ride. Featuring an anatomic cut made from proprietary fabrics, the Tenerissimo 2 will provide your legs with the ideal temperature for those base miles.
Had to go through a couple pair of other Castelli Woman tights to get to this one, but its the pick for the girl who likes support, quality, no pinch, but rides you like a nylon stocking. No butt creep at all on this fine quality item. These have safety reflectors and a wonderful Kiss line Chamois. Hey, I'm her husband, and I know how to treat my lady to the best. I'll probably die trying anyway.
And special thanks to the Fantastic Support from Real Cyclist, I found all of their folks to be Top Notch.
Something about an Italian cycling pant made in China, though? Such is the way of the world.
Why do some cycling clothing manufacturers (especially women's) think a cycling pad has to cover your entire ass???? Actually, the pad on these knickers extends practically to my outer hips!! No, thank you! I'll leave the waddling to the ducks!
I will say that the material is very supportive and the inner lining is low-pile fleece which felt really warm. The waistband was also super comfortable. Castelli would have a great product with this knicker if only they did something about that pad!!!
