Proudly bearing the prestigious Rosso Corsa logo, the Sorpasso tight oozes Italian quality. Every technology available to Castelli has been put into this garment and the result is a lighter and warmer tight. So, when the temperature drops, you can continue to ride your bike and stay fit over winter.
The Sorpasso tight features Thermoflex Core Due fabric. This fleecy fabric is extremely soft to the touch and traps a layer of warm air next to your skin. With a tighter knit than standard Thermoflex, cold air is kept out. Should you begin to overheat, a push-pull moisture management system will keep you dry. The soft Thermoflex waistband offers good coverage, warmth and comfort, with no annoying elasticated bands to irritate you.
To ensure complete comfort on long rides, the Sorpasso tight features Castelli's Progetto X2 Air seatpad. The Progetto X2 is produced using 3 layers, each of which has a very specific purpose. To provide comfort where it's needed most, there is perforated viscous padding at any high pressure areas. Multi-density foam is used to provide variable thickness - padding where it's needed and less where it isn't, to maximise your freedom of movement on and off the bike. Finally, a four way stretch, antibacterial layer allows air to flow into the surface fabric to aid evaporation. Castelli calls this "the most comfortable seat pad on the planet" and we don't disagree!
The Sorpasso tight features an ankle zip, which allows a snug, yet comfortable fit. This snug fit keeps cold air out and allows the hollow-core fibres to trap warm air next to your skin.
When getting those extra training miles in means venturing out in the dark, reflective tape around the zip will help keep you safe by making you more visible to other road users.
All in all, the Sorpasso tight is one of the most advanced garments out there. Putting in those long winter miles will be a pleasure!
With roots dating back to 1876, Castelli has been at the forefront of fabric technology for almost 40 years. Since creating their first women's specific range in 1996, they have continued to lead the way for female cyclists who appreciate Italian quality and design.
