Castelli's Nanoflex bib tights use a unique water-repellent fabric, one of those fabrics that seems miraculous. On a dry day it’s as warm and breathable as our normal Thermoflex fabric, but when it rains the water just runs off, thanks to the five-phase nanotechnology treatment. Castelli have used an innovative construction that minimizes seams to keep you as dry as possible. It’s the best solution Castelli have ever tried for staying comfortable in any condition.
The KISS3 seat pad features an anatomic shape to cushion your body and ultimately increase your comfort. A continuously variable thickness eliminates the odd sensation of “thick here, thin there” that you may have seen before with a dual-density pad. The brushed microfibre cover cuts down on chafing and features a bacteriostatic treatment to reduce the likelihood of saddle sores.
GIRO3 grippers position the tight and seal around the shoe cover, while on the knicker the grippers help the fabric stay put without binding. The mesh bib straps help transport moisture to the jersey and make sure the waist stays where it’s meant to be. Reflective Castelli print and reflective tape zippers make you more visible in low-light conditions.

Yes, these tights perform as claimed. Put them to the test during near constant drizzle for two hours and came home dry even in the seat, the area I was most concerned with. They just aren't very warm but again, they are as good as Castelli claims. It's just that when it's raining, the sensation of cold is enhanced, it feels colder than it is, a time that a warmer tights are welcome. I have also used these on milder days when my Sorpasso tights would be too warm. They seem a little over prized for just a material that repels water, but used on a day like I experienced or worst, I will certainly think the money worth it. With bulky rain pants the only other option, these tights are a welcomed addition.
