Finally, tights for the hard-working cyclists who power through all four seasons.
For the cyclist who rides seriously right through the winter months, upgrade your daily routine with the Castelli Men's Sorpasso RoS Wind Bibtight. This workhorse performance tight elevates your performance from good to great, no matter how long you've been on the bike.
Constructed with a GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ WINDSTOPPER® fleece-backed panel to cover your most sensitive parts as well as your thigh muscles to keep them at ideal operating temperature. While many wind tights will sacrifice fit or comfort or breathability for that crucial wind protection, the two-way stretch of this fabric combined with careful patterning makes for minimal compromise and maximum comfort. Everything on this tight represents our commitment to performance and comfort — the non-windproof parts are composed of Nano Flex 3G and Nano Flex Xtra Dry to provide stretch, warmth, breathability and an incredibly effective water-repellent finish. With a seat pad constructed from top-of-the-line Progetto X2 Air for comfort during long rides, and with a bib designed for comfort as well as performance. Large reflective panels at the back of the ankle provides moving reflectivity that is more noticeable to approaching cars.
If subfreezing temperatures aren't going to hold you back, you need the Castelli Men's Sorpasso RoS Wind Bibtight. Elevate your winter rides with the best tights developed to date.

Overall love the fit of Castelli items. Nothing loose or flappy. In this particular pair of bib tights I did get a slight amount of bunching behind the knees that caused some irritation, though I'm hoping that goes away as I use them more and the fabric softens. Typical Castelli top-line Progetto X2 chamois is quite decent, though I think there are better ones out there for the real long miles. I am 6'3" and 175lbs and the large fits me great. The wind blocking ability of these tights combined with the light brushed insulation does what I want it to do, and these bib tights are warm when cruising easy below 40F, and warm when hammering down into the teens.
I bought these tights to extend my riding season to when it's 35F and raining out. I road tested them today on a 70 minute ride in the 40"s with steady rain. They performed well. I was pretty dry, and warm, the entire ride. I am 6' tall and weight 172 lbs and I bought the large size. They fit pretty well, although I would like the legs to be an inch longer. That is certainly not a deal breaker. I would not wear these tights above 50F, as they would be too warm, but for cold and/or wet conditions they seem pretty ideal.
Purchased these bibs specifically for cold damp days in the saddle. They are perfect for those cold day (35 degrees or less). Great wind barrier that keeps your legs warm, but not toasty. Excellent chamois, as expected from Castelli. Sizing is European, so you may have to size up from your normal kits. Comfortable fit.
