Castelli put all of their best technologies into this exceptional bib tight. Progetto X2 seat pad, Giro++ straps, and a mix of fabrics including Thermoflex Core Due. Using hollow-core fibers, they've made these tights not only lighter and warmer than normal tights, but they keep you drier. Now you're ready to put in those long base rides all winter long.

Great tights, Size Up!

Finally got around to trying these on. Great tights, but size up! I am 5'8 145 lbs, typically a small or medium in bib shorts, always a medium in Castelli shorts. In these tights, I'm a Large. Tried a Med., they just don't fit.

Great shorts, warm, comfortable, the fit is spot on, as long as you're in the right size, which is probably one larger than usual.

Great fit, great chamois, comfortable, but not quite as warm as I hoped

With Castelli cool/cold weather gear I usually find the temperature range they specify to be on the high side. So with my Ergo (Thermoflex material) tights, for example, they say it's good for 43 to 59 degrees, but I can wear them down to the high 30s comfortably and by the low 50s they're too hot. The same is true for their LS jerseys. The Sorpasso tights don't fit that mold. Castelli says they're good down to 32, and I've ridden them at that temperature but my legs were a bit too cold for my liking. Yes, they make riding at that temperature possible, but the cold was a bit distracting, particularly at speed. For me they are comfortable in the same range as the Ergos, high 30s to low 50s.

However, they are superior to the Ergos in the pad. The Progetto X2 pad is very comfortable, the best I've ever used. So for long rides I much prefer these. And they are a bit more compressive and the overall fit is, for want of a better term, more professional.

As with other Castelli clothes the size chart is right on. Don't fuss about whether to size up or not, just take your waist measurement and follow the chart. These will be tight when you first put them on, they're supposed to be that way. Take your time and be patient the first time, and just wear them around the house for an hour or two to let them conform to your body. If they go on easily you've bought the wrong size, and this is true of any performance oriented bike clothing. After a few rides and a wash they'll be easier to get on, but you'll still won't be able to throw them on without thinking.

Tight Tight! Warmth and comfy

I also reviewed the Castelli Men's Espresso Due Jacket, Great jacket and this is a great tight to go with it. Keeps you warm, and its comfortable.

I got a Medium size and it fits fine. My thighs are a big bigger than your avg cyclist.

Im a shorter 5,7 but a bit more muscular and some fat but hey its why I ride.

This tight will keep you warm esp at the low 40s-50F range when I first used these together. If you can shell out the $ for these do it as they will keep you warm.

If money is not an issue, This is it.

I have had commuted in the past for Sixteen months straight in the Bay Area, The demand for aquiring clothing was the least challenging, This Sorpasso is surprisingly pleasant. I am riding now in 3500' elevation, The first time I used it it was in showery condition, It kept me warm. The second was in cold but sunny and wet melting snow, No mud gaurd on my wheels, It kept me warm while wet. The third was today with dry conditions but cold Eastern Winds, I was on the saddle from around 10 in the morning until 4:30, Where the days here in December I am 5'8 with 145 Lbs, The small fit me good.

Great fit for athletic build. Overall quality is good but one layer of stitching on each side undone

6' and170 lbs - size L is perfect.

I like the fit, fabric, design, material. Great product but one row of stitching on each side at the white stripe has come undone. Not enough for me to rate it down because the rest of the product is so good. I am hoping the stitching issue is my bib only.

Seems good to temps of around 5 degrees C, below that and I put another layer on.

Straps hurt

Everything about these is great except the straps don't lay flat, they twist and become spaghetti straps which are really annoying. Better if they were wider.

Well constructed- sizing definitely runs small

Well constructed- sizing definitely runs small- Temp ranges used so far 28-50-comfortable at that range. I have had mixed results with Castelli in the past from a durability standpoint. Some items seem to be bullet proof while others deteriorate quickly. So far the only issue with these is the logo starting to peel off on one of the legs after the 2nd wearing

Excellent fabric and chamois. Very warm despite this fabric. Fit is small even after upsizing one size.

This is a quality bib tight with very comfortable fabric and chamois and is one of my warmest long tights despite having relatively thin fabric. The fit, however, is very small despite going from a large to x-large size. The main things I notice about these tights are the short leg length ( 2 shorter than my Pearl Izumi large) and a slight tightness of the shoulder straps. The shoulder straps loosen slightly when in a crouched position and I don't notice it much when I ride. I compensate for the shorter leg length by using taller socks. I almost returned these because of these shortcomings (pun intended) but felt the plush fabric, comfortable chamois, and warmth outweighed the negative aspects. I would try them on before you buy and recommend them if you can fit into them comfortably.

True to size, looks better on then pictured, effective seat pad. Solid cold weather tight.

Cold weather-winter-road bike riding. Generally 20 to 40 miles rides.

Perform very well, but go one size larger.

Definitely size up. I am 6'-0 at 158 Ibs and normally wear a medium however the Castelli's are really snug in a med. They work, but next time I am going with a large.
