2020 Castelli Omloop Nano Women's Bibshorts
Taking inspiration from pro riders cutting down knee warmers at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad the Omloop was cut longer than normal bibshorts with an extra 10cm of fabric adding a lot of warmth, while also doing away with the need for restrictive gripper elastic.
This new bib short take the same idea but with an updated design and fabric for even greater versatility. The Omloop Nano Women's Bibshort is made from Castelli's Nano Flex 3G fabric. This offers the same warmth, softness, and breathability as the fabric used in the original Omloop but it is also water repellent.
So now this short ideal for cool and dry days, but it is also superb for wet weather. Reduced seaming eliminates points where water can enter the short and minimises abrasion. The mesh bibs don't add warmth so you can dress your upper body for the conditions without worrying about moisture build up.
The women's specific KISS Air2 Donna seat pad provides maximum comfort with minimal bulk. The fabric closest to the skin is incredibly soft for long-lasting comfort and is stretchy to move with you while dual-density foam gives you the right amount of cushioning in every part of the pad Nano Flex 3G fabric is water repellent, elastic, and warm thanks to the luxurious brushed inside. Reduced seams eliminate abrasion for maximum comfort and prevent water from entering the short when riding in the wet.
Long cut knee for extra warmth. Does not require gripper improving comfort. Mesh bibstraps are highly breathable allowing for better thermoregulation.
Kiss Air2 Donna seat pad for all-day comfort. 14 degrees - 20 degrees C / 57 degrees - 68 degrees F.
Weight: 216g (Small).

Castelli Bib Shorts
Castelli has a rich history as one of the iconic cycling brands, primarily specialising in high end road clothing. Founded by Vittore Gianni in 1876, initially as a tailor shop in Milan, it diversified to include cycling clothing in 1910, for riders such as Alfredo Binda. In 1935 Armando Castelli joined the company, purchasing it 4 years later. Shortly afterwards it began supplying riders such as Gino Bartali and Fausto Coppi. By 1975, it was rebranded to Castelli, featuring the iconic scorpion logo, and shortly afterwards produced many revolutionary clothing products, such as the first lycra cycling shorts, windproof jerseys and thermal cycling clothing. To this day, the brand is synonymous with performance cycle wear, and together with Santini, they supply some of the greatest ex and current cyclists on the planet.
