With fall, the season of arm warmers and wool gloves is upon us. That means that winter is also just around the corner, and the light accessorizing that we do in fall won't hold up to the temperatures that winter will bring. As the post-Thanksgiving turkey coma wears off, we usually find ourselves reaching into our cycling gear cornucopia for the Castelli Velocissimo 2 Bib Tights. The Velocissimo 2 Bib Tights are built for soft, warm, stretchy comfort thanks to Thermoflex fabric, a staple across Castelli's cold-weather line. Thermoflex's brushed lining keeps the cold out and wicks moisture without irritating your skin. The mesh straps of the bibs keep the fit unbulky and give you ultimate control over your upper body layering because they don't add any extra insulation. They also keep each part of the tights in the right place, including the suggestively-titled KISS 3 chamois insert. The ankles zip and grip to fit tight over shoe covers, and the zippers themselves feature reflective piping to make you more visible to motorists in low-light situations. Castelli recommends these tights for use between 43 and 59 degrees Fahrenheit, but you may find the going a bit hot in the high 50s. For high-intensity workouts or cyclocross races, we find that these tights ride comfortably into the high 30s. But whether you're racing, maintaining a base, or just hamming it up on the new wheelset you gave yourself as an early present, Castelli's understated graphical treatment looks so good that you'll actually be hoping for weather cold enough to justify tights. The Castelli Velocissimo 2 Bib Tights are available in six sizes ranging from Small to XXX-Large in Black/drive blue, Black/lime, Black/red, Black/white, and just plain old Black.
