Don't be afraid of rain.
Ill-fitting knickers are the bane of road cyclists' existence, particularly those who train in cold-weather locales. If you can't recall a pair of knickers you've owned that you've actually liked, know that you can toss your ill-fitting old knickers and trade them for something made to fit well. Castelli's expertise in fit is no secret, and the Italian firm takes the construction of its Nano Flex 2 Bib Knickers as seriously as the rest of its impeccably tailored kit.
Whether the skies look gloomy before you head out or you're caught in a surprise shower, Nano Flex fabric was created specifically to combat wet, inclement weather on the bike. The Nano Flex 2 Knickers continue the legacy their predecessor set, repelling water while establishing a layer of warmth close to your skin.
Castelli purposely eliminates seaming wherever possible to reduce the likelihood of water soaking through the knickers, and it adds secure Giro3 grippers to the cuffs to create a consistent fit that seals out road spray. The bib itself is mesh, airy and breathable, designed to subtly sit under a jersey and be barely noticeable when you're pedaling. Castelli's Kiss Air chamois loyally stands guard between you and the saddle, providing multi-layered cushioning that remains supportive and breathable over the miles, however cold and rainy they may be.

they won't keep you dry but I've found that even in very cold and wet conditions you still have some warmth in the groin and legs. way better than wearing regular bibs with leg warmers. They do shed a lot of spay as well.
