What It Is

Made for long hours in the widest range of conditions, this tight features our ultra-stretchy, warm and water-repellent Nano Flex 3G fabric with the extra warmth of Nano Flex Xtra Dry on the hips and thighs, along with an anatomical cut and the Progetto X2 Air seamless seat pad for long-distance comfort.
RoS - Rain or Shine

We’ve engineered RoS as the no-compromise best clothing we know how to make for dry conditions, and then tried to make it as close to waterproof as possible without sacrificing breathability and ventilation.

Progetto X² Air Seamless

MAXIMUM TECHNOLOGY FOR SUPREME COMFORT.Constructed in two components, each dedicated to a specific purpose, that together create the most comfortable seat pad on the planet.Skin Care LayerSeamless, bacteriostatic layer made to adapt to the shape of your body and saddle without any folds in the fabric. Cushioning LayerSeamless Integrated Technology (S.I.T.) Perforated Viscous Comfort Zone.

Rosso Corsa

Our Rosso Corsa label is only applied to the highest-level products we make. Every thread and fiber, every curve and contour is obsessed about. Rosso Corsa represents a categorical breakthrough in cycling innovation and the meticulous craftsmanship you expect from Castelli’s performance-enhancing apparel.

Nano Flex

Exclusively engineered by Castelli. We take our thermal fleecy stretch Thermoflex fabric and coat it with millions of tiny nanofilaments to create the most water-repellent fabric finish ever. Drops of water stay as spherical balls on top of the fabric or bounce off the fabric without leaving a trace.

PRO RIDERS

Garment supplied to the Soudal Quick-Step Team riders.

The name of this tight, Sorpasso, means "overtaking" in Italian. That's what we've tried to do with this tight, to make it a bit faster, better, more comfortable. It's made to be technical equipment for riding in the widest range of winter conditions. The main part of the tight uses our Nano Flex 3G fabric, the third generation of our nanotechnology fabric treatment that adds a high level of water repellency without affecting the breathability, stretch or warmth of the fabric. You get a highly stretchy, compressive fit that moves with you, focusing on warmth and comfort. But then we add a few panels of the Nano Flex Xtra Dry fabric to provide a bit more wind protection and warmth in the front panel and over the thighs, and in the back for extra protection from road spray. It's not only about the fabrics: anatomical patterning gives a bend at the knee and the hip, while the seamless bib straps lie flat and securely keep everything in place. Our generously padded Progetto X2 Air seamless seat pad make long rides more comfortable, and you have multiple reflective panels to keep you visible. We've designed this as the go-to tight for a full winter's riding.

Bought the Sorpasso bibtight in a sale and not disappointed. My first bibtights with a chamois in them and was dubious at first, but first ride was excellent. Super comfortable, but I went XXL when my shorts are normally XL. Length great too, even if I have short legs, but big thighs and calves, it fits well. Temperature range good from 0 to 12 degrees for me. I have used it in -1 to -2 degrees at a push, but at that temp I sue the Sorpasso Wind bib tights, but if you only have one pair, these will work down to zero, it depends on how much you feel the cold. I do when riding, so prefer something a bit warm when it gets around zero degrees. Ankle zippers also a first for me after having foot loops previously and I have to say, they are excellent and I don't notice them. Also gives the option of putting overshoes under the tights so the rain doesn't run down and into overshoes. I love the tights and an excellent investment for autumn spring and winters to come here in Belgium.

Ottimo bibtight

Una calzamaglia calda e performante per le uscite invernali. Ottima le caratteristiche tecniche offerte e la fabbricazione che la rende confortevole anche per le lunghe pedalate grazie anche ad un fondello ben progettato.

I couldn't be happier with the Sorpasso RoS tights. I live in eastern Canada, where winter riding gets VERY cold. My threshold for heading out is -15C, which I use the Polare 3 tights for. Above -10C, and especially when riding roads (instead of fatbike), I love the Sorpasso RoS, as it provides smooth range of movement and blood-flow, while protecting against wind and insulating well. I normally feel a little cold in the glute and back of thigh area for the first 10-15 minutes, then that resolves and I'm comfortable for the rest of the ride, which is generally 3+ hours. I appreciate the premium pad, as it is the same as the shorts I use in summer, ideal for long hours. It also manages moisture well. I tend to use fenders on the road in winter, which really helps the tights function at their peak. If you won't use fenders for wet riding, you might wish to try the Nano Flex Pro 2 tights, which are a little less insulating, but amplify spray protection. I will tend to wear the Sorpasso RoSs comfortably up to about 10C when it's humid out, then shift to Sorpasso RoS knickers or bib-short / leg warmer combinations. For reference, I'm 185cm tall, about 175lbs, and I'm at the upper edge of the fit range for the LARGE.

Ottima consiglierei di alzare la parte riflettente sul retro caviglia x evitare di coprirlo con i sovrascarpe.
