The weatherman might be warning you to stay inside with a cup of tea and a good book, but you're not one for following directions. Instead, you'd prefer to stop at nothing to get your base miles in, even if it takes a few wind-burned cheeks, and frozen locks of hair whipping in the gusts. To stay toasty when the days cool down, toss on Castelli's Velocissima Tight and trap in the heat. Termoflex fleece-lined fabric traps in your body heat, and full-length coverage that makes icy gusts feel like little more than a cool, relaxing breeze. The Velocissima makes quick work of cool conditions, but still keeps breathability a priority, keeping heat on the inside, while sweat is wicked away to keep you dry and comfortable through the miles.
For extra comfort on the long haul, Castelli employs its KISS Air2 Donna chamois that absorbs harsh vibrations with multi-density foam. Dense foam is placed at the thickest point of the pad under the Ischial bones to cushion them from the road, a tapered slightly to relieve pressure at the perineum. The KISS Air2 Donna uses Castelli's softest ever face fabric, giving your skin a gentle touch while you ride, reducing potential for irritation or chaffing. The Velocissima Tights are finished off with all of the details you'd expect from Castelli, like a zippered cuff to seal out the wind at the bottom, reflective accents at the ankles, and the iconic scorpion logo on the back of each calf.
