For navigating dark and dank days.
Fall and winter riding tend to lend themselves to an awful lot of wheel spray, and your lower legs have a knack for being the main receiver of the unpleasant, frigid road-water. Castelli has an eye out for you though, thanks to the Tempesta 2 Leg Warmers, made with Nano Flex fabric on the thighs, and ReFlex claves, you'll be able to stay dry and warm through trying winter miles. Made to be worn with the Tempesta 3/4 pants, the legwarmers integrate to provide your legs protection from spray that could make its way in your pant leg, providing you with waterproof protection for the ride.
Since fall and winter riding often pair with low and flat light, Castelli constructs the Tempesta 2 leg warmers with Reflex fabric, which illuminates brightly under headlights while remaining waterproof. Placing reflective fabric along the calf muscles is ideal due to their constant movement on the bike, making it easier for motorists to distinguish that you, too, are a moving object on the road. When paired over the top of the Tempesta shoe covers you'll find a total waterproof seal on your legs, and maximum reflectivity.
Up top the warmers use Nano Flex fabric on the thigh and knee, made with stretchy and soft Thermoflex fleece that's been coated with nanofilaments that keep water rolling off of the fabric. Nano Flex on its own is not completely waterproof, but it does add protection and warmth, shielding from drops and a bit of spray that creeps up past the knee.
