Sorpasso 2 Bib Tight

Castelli knows what we want from our kits, with the desire for a summer-weight feel, compression where needed, stretch where we want it, and overall comfort that doesn’t feel bulky and restrict movement. Their engineers answer our requests with the Castelli Sorpasso 2 Bib Tights, which are there to get us through the cold months and those all-important winter base miles.

Starting at the base of construction, the Sorpasso 2 are carefully stitched together with panels of Castelli's compressive Thermoflex Core2 fabric and Thermoflex fabric for its stretchy and fleecy soft properties. Unchanged from previous years, Thermoflex 2 has a nylon outer layer with a hollow-core polyester inner layer that traps heat within to maintain warmth and insulation, all the while nylon and polyester work together for maximum moisture management, pulling perspiration away from your skin to dry quickly so you can stay comfortable and warmer. With exceptional moisture wicking paired with hollow core construction, the Sorpasso 2 is officially recommended for cool-to-cold rides from 41 to 53 degrees Fahrenheit; however, many of us who run hot in the saddle will wear them into the mid-30s.

The fabric sees few changes to the strategic panels that made up previous years' Sorpasso bibs, since it uses the same fabrics as before, but that isn't to say that nothing is different. The most notable change to the bibs occurred on the back. Increasing support, a lumbar band improves the fit and comfort in the saddle for increased support when you're grinding out long winter miles.

Smooth, seamless straps wrap over your shoulders comfortably, and their wide construction distributes pressure for a nearly unnoticeable fit under your jersey. Because the straps omit seams you'll be pleased to find zero chafing, even on long rides.

Your sit bones would thank you if they could for the luxurious Progetto X2 Air chamois with. With seamless fabric against your sensitive skin and exceptional moisture transfer that allows for airflow, you'll feel fresh and comfortable. Underneath the 4-way stretch fabric, you'll find multi-density padding with variable thickness and perforated comfort inserts to seal the deal with support where it's needed and breathability to boot.

  • A light weight winter bib that offers warmth and insulation
  • Thermoflex Core2 fabric compresses for better circulation
  • Enjoy a fleecy stretch from Thermoflex panels
  • Nylon and polyester allow moisture transfer to keep you dry
  • Lumbar support strap takes a load off of your lower back

  • Multi-density chamois supports your sit bones

Warm, great chamois, so-so fit

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

The chamois is probably one of the most comfortable of any bibs that I own, tights or shorts. It's the type that you just forget is there, even for 3-4 hr rides.
The warmth is good for me down to around 40F. I don't ride much at temps below that. I do wish there was a little more of the chamois up front to provide more warmth and wind blocking.
As for the fit, they are pretty uncomfortable when standing before getting on the bike. At 6' 2", the straps on the XL are just barely long enough to get over my shoulders. Ends up squeezing me in the wrong places. Once on the bike, this is not really an issue.

Great Winter Bib Tights

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

I got these this fall in order to extend my riding season and stay off the indoor trainer. So far I've worn them in temps 35°-45°F and they are great! I don't think I'll have any problems riding with them into the high 20's. As far as fit goes you do need to size up at least one full size unless you already know your "Castelli size". I wear medium in most other brands and require a large in Castelli. The larges fit great on my 6'1" 165lbs body. Like others have mentioned, if you don't have low body fat in your belly area then these could be uncomfortable for you. The Progetto X2 Air chamois is great for as long of a ride as you would want to do in the cold.

Medium way too small!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Medium

I am 5 feet 4 inches tall, waist 32 bought a medium and the shoulder straps and waist are way too small! Usually take a medium, am trying a large- concerned about the length of the inseam.

Great bibs, size up!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

If you are looking for something to keep you toasty during the winter months look no further. These bibs provide great insulation for the coldest temperatures that I dare ride in. I've worn these in the 20s and been just fine.
You still get the great compression and fit in high quality bib shorts, combined with the insulation to keep you warm. That combined with the fantastic X2 chamois, and I was super comfy on my winter commutes.
Like other reviews have stated you are going to need to size up a full size from what you normally wear. I went up to an XL, and I never need more than a Large normally. Once I got the sizing down, I have been happy with the fit and quality.

GREAT quality... Horrid fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: M

Bought size M knowing that I might need to have the straps altered. No problem. It was rather funny. At 5'8" with a 30" inseam, the leg part fit perfectly. However, I could not even attempt to stand straight. From an old, "donor" set of bibs, I had 9" added to the Castelli straps. Yes, that is NINE inches of additional strap length. With the strap issue resolved, I could finally try on the bibs just to discover that the pad is set 2" too far back. Great butt coverage but my man parts are left rubbing against the flatlock stitching. To add insult to injury, the Castelli pad is 2" SHORTER than the LG Level 4 pad. That means I have 3" - 4" of man parts off the pad.... I guess these bibs are not for me afterall

Maybe too sculpting?

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

I'm 5'8" 160lb and a solid Medium in all clothing. 31" inseam, 32" waist. These run small, I sent for a Large and they are better, but still very snug above the hip. The material is meant to give compression, but I think they should have used plain Lycra for the part that needs to enclose the belly. If you are not super trim, order at least one size up. Even the straps were too short on the Med. and I'm not tall.

Wanted to like these...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

What others are saying about sizing is dead on. I bought a large, have an average length torso, and the straps are very tight. Additionally, after a fairly short period of time the stitching came undone on the chamois. These are pretty close in price to the cheapest Assos, but the quality is a long way off.

Bib straps too small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

Runs very small in the bib straps. Sizing was fine in leg but way too tight in the torso.

That strap is HORRIBLE!

    The size is what you expect from Castelli, race fit and really tight (which i like)
    But the strap is really what made me hate this bib, who in the right mind design a bib strap that will cut into your skin!

    I have other bib from them without the crappy strap... PLS TRY IT ON BEFORE IT GOES TO MARKET CASTELLI.

    Gonna go buy me a rapha bib. BYE!

    Then simply wear the straps over your base layer like most cyclists.

    Runs small

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large

    I wear a large in the free aero race bib shorts, and a large in the San Remo winter suit. Tried the large in the Sorpasso 2, but it was too small. The XL is better - almost like the former large.

    Part 2: I have now worn these bibs several times. Great product. Very warm and comfortable - I don’t really know they are there in any way - chamois, straps, etc. Breathe well, yet are very warm into the low 30’s. Just err on the side of getting a big size.

    Unanswered Question

    Does the Sorpasso tight offer any water resistance? If not, what bib tights do you recommend for damp/wet conditions?

    Great Bib Tights!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    Great for rides from 35-55. I got the smalls and found that if you like compression, this was the right size for me. I am 5'10" with a 31" waist and 31.5" pant inseam, skinny legs and these fit great. Most men would probably want to size up one like we traditionally recommend with Castelli as I am super narrow through the hips. The ride was chilly for the first 10-15 minutes at 35 degrees, but that is expected. If I wore more, I'd overheat later in the ride so I just suck it up and deal with it. The water repellancy makes them really great for the days where its warm, but the roads are wet from snow melt. I highly recommend these for anyone looking to ride in the winter or early spring.

    Good Product

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XL

    They are rated for 41-54°F, but have worn as cold as 16°F. Once you get moving the tights seem to warm up, and keep the wind out. Overall a good product as I've gotten another pair to ride through the winter season.

    Size up! Then size up again.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I wore size LG with the prior Sorpasso. XL on the Sorpasso 2 seems smaller than the Sorpasso 1 LG. Shoulder straps are pretty tight.

    Very nice - need to size up i

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XL

    Took them on a 65 mile ride in low to mid 30s and the kept me nice and warm without overheating. Padding is very comfortable, such that I never thought about it once during the ride. If you're used to Pearl Izumi or similar brands, consider sizing up one size.

    Great product, but watch sizing

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XLarge

    When I finally get Castelli products sized correctly, they're great. That's the rub: sizing runs small and is inconsistent.

    Bought Large size in last year's Sorpasso bib tights, as I always buy Large in Castelli bib shorts.

    Bought Large in this year's Sorpasso 2, but had to return it for an XLarge, which is still smaller than last year's Large.

    • Size Bought: 3x

    High-quality the legs are fine the torso is too small in the shoulder she’s very tight with the straps feel like they’re cutting you. The chamois stiching on my private feels like it’s cutting the tip off ouch not fun i keep adjusting during my ride.

    Good bib tights

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    These bibs fit very snug as expected from Castelli gear. Length of the legs is ok. Same chamois as in the Free Aero bibs - i can ride in it for many hrs and be very comfortable. Warm enough into the high 30’s (no rain).
    Outside has a slight redish hue, especially at knees, when you have them on. That’s the inside fleece shining through.
    I dinged these tights one star because the shoulder straps are a bit short in my opinion. No problem once they are on, and no issues at all when on the bike. However, even though the front is low, it’s nearly impossible to do #1 because the front fabric is not very elastic and the shoulder straps have hardly any stretch left. Dont have that problem on the Free Aero bibs. Hope the fabric/straps will stretch a bit over time.
