The Women’s Chic Tight from Castelli provides moderate, full-length insulation and wind resistance for cool weather cycling in a lightweight, ergonomic package. Made of Castelli’s plush, Thermoflex fabric, the Chic Tight is soft against the skin and stretchy for a snug fit. The waistband features double-layered construction for non-restricting conformity. While lightweight, Thermoflex yields impressive insulation and moisture management. As the body warms and perspires, Thermoflex performs two functions: it traps a layer of warm air against the skin for ride-long insulation and transports moisture from the skin to the surface where it rapidly evaporates to regulate body temperature and maintain dryness.
For comprehensive comfort and ergonomics, the knees feature articulated construction and an additional layer of fabric. The articulated construction mirrors the bend of the knee for a more comfortable fit and greater freedom of movement. An additional layer of fabric around the knees ensures adequate joint protection - a necessity in cool and cold weather cycling.
The Women’s Chic Tight comes with Castelli’s KISS Air seat pad, featuring a seamless, brushed microfiber top layer with bacteriostatic treatment for reliable comfort during and after rides. Its anatomic shape and dual density foam with varying thickness - thicker in the ischial zone and thinner along the perimeter - provides optimal cushioning throughout the pad.

Comfortable and a good fit.
I sometimes buy men's tights because of the style options, better colors and range of options, but these women's tights feel better. They have a high rise waistline which is more comfortable for me than the men's which tend to be low rise. The fabric is comfortable and does not bunch up at the knees. Easy onoff with the ankle zips. Castelli works for me.
