The Castelli Velocissima Women's Knickers marry warmth and luxurious comfort in a subtle aesthetic, making them ideally suited to your winter training needs. At once highly breathable, elegantly constructed and primed for longer days in the saddle, these are a winter wardrobe staple.
Investing in a top-tier pair of knickers for the winter months pays dividends not only in terms of performance gains but ride enjoyment. Uppers are often swapped and changed as conditions change but you’re unlikely to change your lower garment throughout the duration of a training ride, so it’s crucial to get a pair that keep your temperature regulated and ensure maximal comfort.
The Velocissima Knickers are a stalwart pair of tights, owing to the meticulous care and attention invested in their development and refinement by Castelli’s prestigious R & D team. Bred from a pedigree of tried, tested and widely lauded racing garments, the Velocissima Knickers take technical innovations and employ them to give you the best winter training experience.
The Thermoflex fabric utilised across the knickers is not only insulating but incredibly soft, owing to the optimal loft and refined composition that Castelli has employed. The brushed fleece inner is phenomenally warm but also allows freedom of movement on the bike. The Thermoflex fabric makes for optimal breathability so that as you transition from cooler starts to milder conditions your temperature remains just right.
The Kiss Air2 Donna seat pad employed in the Velocissima Knickers is custom made by Castelli and chosen by many professional racers for their training needs, due to its moisture management properties and slightly more low-profile padding than the Progretto X2 seat pad. Needless to say, the Kiss Air2 keeps you comfortable even on long days on the bike.
As you would expect from Castelli, every single detail of the Velocissima Knickers has been selected because it improves your ride experience. The YKK Camlock zippers on the ankle cuffs can be flipped upwards to lock the zipper in place, preventing it from unfastening mid-ride and exposing your ankles.
