Our Nano Flex water-repellent fabric is one of those fabrics that seems miraculous. On a dry day its as warm and breathable as our normal Thermoflex fabric, but when it rains the water just runs off, thanks to the five phase nanotechology treatment. While its not 100% waterproof, its the best soloution we have ever tried for staying comfortable in any conditions. On a wet day pair the NanoFlex bibshort with our NanoFlex knee or leg warmers for the same level of warmth and protection as you would get with tights.
So you race cross? Do you train in the rain? Do you go home if its a cold damp start to your race? Have you ever done a sportive in changable conditions? Just imagine a high quality bibshort with the renowned Kiss 3 seatpad that actively sheds water thats still as stretchy as a standard lycra short oh and also has a little bit extra warmth..... Its here so where sorry we have taken away all your excusses....
Nano-Flex fabric provides outstanding warmth and stretch, with water resistance.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ragamuffin101 Excellent - comfortable, warm, sheds the water
Got these for spring / autumn rides, and they do the job brilliantly. KISS 3 pad is very comfortable indeed, does not need any cream of any sort. They do a good job at shedding light rain or road spray. Thermoflex fabric keeps you warm - ok if it gets up above 10 - 12 degrees C for longer periods you will find yourself overheating - but they never get nasty sweaty. They won't keep heavy rain out, but they do stay warm when wet. I did the Fred Whitton in these and Nanoflex knee warmers - perfect for a long day out in all weathers - torrential rain, sun, wind, etc.... They are also pretty well priced compared to other bib shorts, especially the other Castelli ones. Overall would have no hesitation in recommending this product.
Of course the usual warning applies for the size - I went up 2 sizes to XL. At 5ft 9 and 72Kg this is kind of ridiculous. (Just order 2 sizes and return one.)

love these - plus got them in the sale price.. amazing value. Fantastic pad, and after 60 miles in hail and rain, stayed relatively dry and warm.
