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. 
 
Features:
  • 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
Great 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.
I 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.
Great 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.
Magnifico
2nd 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.
