Description

Details

Castelli's Sorpasso 2 tight will have you raring to get back into the saddle after every ride. Perfect for the colder seasons, this tight offers great insulation against the cold without compromising breathability or comfort. We reckon it’s perfect for rides in around 5-12c, or a little cooler

Designed with Castelli's top of the line Progetto X2 Air Women's specific chamois, the Sorpasso liberates you to take on longer, more comfortable rides.

Claimed by Castelli to be the world's most comfortable chamois pad, the Progetto X2 Air is composed of a seamless skin layer, using a bacteriostatic four-way stretch fabric which effortlessly moulds to the body form and saddle shape as you pedal. With variable thickness and perforated viscous inserts positioned around highly sensitive areas, the Progetto X2 Air combines ultimate comfort, breathability and performance, perfect for long rides.

Known for their premium quality, Castelli have implemented some of the best fabric technology into the Sorpasso 2. Constructed from Thermoflex and Thermoflex Core2 material, it creates excellent insulation with a smooth nylon shell and a fleece lining that helps to wick sweat away from the skin for dry performance.

Featuring compressive lumbar support around your middle, the Sorpasso 2 Women’s Tight is the perfect choice for when the colder seasons start to roll in

Note: where Castelli once had a reputation for making gear that suited only very small Italian people, the Castelli women's size scale is now very similar to 'normal' UK sizing.

Who's Behind It?

Q. What do a 19th century Italian tailor, a designer for the Milan Ballet and the first ever lycra cycling shorts have in common?

A. They are all part of a rich 140 year history that's led to today's most recognised brand in cycling: Castelli.

Throw in a heart attack on a famous Italian climb, family feuds, Olympic gold medals and controversy in the pro peloton and it begins to sound more like a Sicilian soap opera than the backdrop to a cycling brand. But then again Castelli is no ordinary brand.

Today, Castelli's scorpion emblem is arguably the single most recognised in cycling. Iconic is an overused word these days, but the Castelli brand surely qualifies.

We first discovered Castelli on our year long ride through the Americas in 2010, when our founder Liz (pictured) wore Castelli shorts and loved them, so stocking them seemed an obvious choice. But we're almost as captivated by the story behind the name as the kit itself!
