Surpassing the unsurpassable.
Marrying warmth and versatility into one magical bib tight, Castelli puts their best foot forward this year with the new Sorpasso 2 Bib tight for women, so you can commit to keeping your wheels on the pavement when things get icy. A redesigned masterpiece with design rooted in Castelli's previously known and loved Sorpasso, the Sorpasso 2 features much of the technology we know we can count on, but with tweaks here and there to offer improved comfort in the saddle and prolonged warmth.
The Sorpasso 2 bib tights begins its construction, much like the previous Sorpasso, by being carefully stitched together with panels of Castelli's compressive Thermoflex Core2 fabric and Thermoflex fabric that lends its self to a higher level of stretch, landing at the perfect balance between stretch and compression. Thermoflex 2 has a nylon outer layer with a hollow-core polyester inner layer that traps heat within to maintain warmth and insulation, all the while nylon and polyester work together for maximum moisture management, pulling perspiration away from your skin to dry quickly so you can stay comfortable and warmer. With exceptional moisture wicking paired with hollow core construction, Castelli recommends the Sorpasso 2 for cool-to-cold rides from 41 to 53-degrees F.
The fabric sees few changes to the strategic panels that made up previous years' Sorpasso, the most notable change on the bibs occurred on the back. Increasing support, a lumbar located band improves the fit and comfort in the saddle for increased support when you're hammering out long and brutal winter miles.
Smooth, seamless straps wrap over your shoulders comfortably, and their wide construction distributes pressure for a nearly unnoticeable fit under your jersey. Because the straps omit seams you'll be pleased to find zero chafing, even on long rides. Your sit bones would thank you if they could for the luxurious Progetto X2 Air chamois with women's specific construction. With seamless fabric against your sensitive skin, and exceptional moisture transfer that allows for airflow, you'll feel fresh and comfortable. Underneath the 4-way stretch fabric, you'll find multi-density padding with variable thickness and perforated comfort inserts to seal the deal with support where it's needed and breathability to boot.
