Castelli Nano Flex Pro Omloop Bibshorts - SS18
The Ulimate shorts for cold and wet riding! This short is just a few centimeters longer, finishing just above the knee, but you’ll be amazed at how much warmer this little addition will make you feel. This required engineering a raw-cut edge, tapered just right for extra coverage in the front while being shorter on the back so it doesn’t bunch behind the knee. Castelli have used Nano Flex fabric for a warm brushed fleece on the inside with a nanotechnology water-repellent surface treatment that makes much of the rain run off the fabric, and when it does eventually wet out it manages to keep you warmer.
- Nano Light Pro fabric for cool and wet conditions
- Minimal seaming to minimize water entering
- Pro-length cut just above the knee with raw-cut edge
- Progetto X2 Air seat pad for long rides and rough terrain
- Mesh bib straps
- Screen-printed logos
- Weight: 214g
- Temp. Range +12 to +18 degrees C
GaborFantastic shorts for autumn ride. Effectice protection from mist & cold. If combined with Nanoflex+ kneewarmers or legwarmers, confortable even below 10 degrees. The fit below is somewhat interesting (almost covering the front side of the knee) for the first time, but quick to get accustomed to.
gplouVery quality product. The fit looks fine and snug (I did not ride them yet) 184cm 80kg and long legs Medium.
Mr MartínCulotte fantastic!!!! lo volvere a comprar, compression justa y la longitud perfecta. No lo he probado con lluvia pero con el frio perfecto.
Mr ZaoralPerfect shorts, ideal for spring and autumn, I recommend
pkultraI'm 1.7m 59kg (5'7" 130lbs) and size small is a perfect fit. These are some of the best shorts I've ever owned. Perfect for cool fall days. Add the Castelli NanoFlex+ Legwarmers for colder winter rides. Great combo.
RicardoWarm. Water resistant. Leg length is much longer than usual to provide more warmth. Pad position seems a bit more forward than other Castelli bibs, also less tight
AddisonPerfect for those colder days and pairing with leg warmers. These are noticeably warmer.
Mr BAUDEJust a fantastic bib short under autumn rain condition. Only some water on the rear due to wheel projection. This bib short keeps you warm under 9 °C and rain this is a marvellous Castelli item. Regarding the pad this is my first X2 air and after 3 hours on saddle this is ok, I have to say that I personally prefer the Kiss air wich are my perfect fit up to 6 hours in the saddle. Merlin have given as usual an aggressive price for such an item, I highly recommand. Delivery was as planned.
MichaelA little long as advertised. Looking forward to using them. Large size fits great on my 5`10", 185 lb frame
David RThese are quality bibs with a great feel and a very comfortable fit, much more relaxed than the 'normal' castelli range. I ordered a medium but they felt a little slack and the leg was a touch long for my liking. I think I would be a small fit in these bibs and still find them comfortable 5'8in, 38in chest, 32in waist, considered slim build
PhilGood quality as expected from Castelli and warm. I am 6'3" and of slim build and ordered an XL as I usually do with Castelli bibshorts. The length is good for me (stops just above the knee), but it's a bit big around the waist, crotch and thighs, resulting in the bibshort moving around and bunching. It's not too bad but I probably should have ordered the L instead.
Mr AndreVery comfortable. Good protection from rain and cold weather.
L2RA great pair of cooler weather shorts. Went for medium over my normal large size in Castelli and they're a good fit, with the extra leg length finishing just above the knee (I'm just under 5'9). Very good Progetto2 pad too. Not tried in rain yet but noted water spilt from a bidon rolled straight off. I`ve other Nanoflex products and they`ve been good in the wet. Great sale price and quick delivery from Merlin as always. Chuffed.
Mr AnderssonExcellent in rain
JamesCozy and perfect for wet Fall/Winter. At this price, hard to argue. Castelli quality is apparent in the great chamois and bib straps, very comfortable bibs.
graham fGreat pair of shorts that bridge longs and shorts. Very fleecy and warm, but needs to warm up a few degrees until they get worn! Sizing usual for Castelli - ie go up 1 size from normal uk.
Steve WillcocksI think Castelli have altered their sizing recently and had to get a size smaller than previous bib shorts. That said these Nano Flex Pro Omloop and brilliant, like 99% of Castelli products. Warm and dry in cold wet conditions. The long "pro cut" doesn't go amiss either, just need to replace my nanoflex leg-warmers now as they are a couple of years old.
David LynchGreat short though in contrast to other Castelli bibs I have should have stuck to L rather than XL. Only time will tell if leg length is useful or annoying with layers. Great pricing and pad is superb.
MJTanman2nd Pair of these, they are great and are surprisingly warm, cut off just above the knee cap they have eliminated the need for Knee Warmers on Autumn & Winter Mild Days. The Nano Flex & Standard versions are highly recommended.
