Wheel spray? No problem!
If you're riding without mudguards you know that the lower legs get wheel spray from both front and back and are one of the hordest spots to keep dry. So Castelli made the lower part of this leg warmer with waterproof reflective fabric so that the spray will just run off.
You wear this warmer with your favourite shorts, underneath the Tempesta 3/4 Pant, and OVER your waterproof booties. You get ventilation under the pant and because the warmer is placed over the bootie, the rain just runs right off.
The large reflective area on your moving legs is highly visbile for extra safety, and in Castelli's testing, this piece has become a favourite for night rides.

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! For the full Castelli story (it's quite a story!), click here.
