The Castelli Velocissimo 4 Bib Knickers marry warmth and luxurious comfort in a subtle aesthetic, making them ideally suited to your autumn and spring training needs. At once highly breathable, elegantly constructed and primed for longer days in the saddle, these are a real winner.
Bib knickers are a great alternative to bib tights if you’re training in cooler conditions prior to the racing season but don’t need full winter protection.
The Velocissimo 4 Bib Knickers are a stalwart garment, 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 Velocissimo 4 Bib Knickerstake technical innovations and employ them to give you the best low season 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. Combined with mesh bib straps 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 seat pad employed in the Velocissimo 4 Bib 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 Velocissimo 4 Bib Knickers has been selected because it improves your ride experience. Reflective highlights on the lower legs ensure low-light safety whilst the overall aesthetic of the knickers is muted but elegant – easily combined with a wide variety of jackets, jerseys and shoes.
