Castelli Omloop Thermal Bibshorts - AW18
At the Belgian classics we've seen the pros cutting off their knee warmers to have a thermal layer just to the knee. So we made up some shorts to ride in and quickly realized that the pros are onto something. It feels significantly warmer than a thermal short but without the restriction of 3/4 knickers. Castelli developed a soft raw-cut edge so it's not going to cut into the back of your knee.
 
Features
  • Thermal short cut just to the knee
  • Thermoflex fabric for exceptional warmth, stretch and breathability
  • Raw-cut edge at anatomically shaped knee
  • Progetto X2 Air seat pad for long-distance comfort
  • Mesh bib straps so that you can regulate insulation with your base layers, not the bib
  • Reflective viz strips for visibility
  • Weight:214g
Very nice fit and materials. These are pretty snug and comfortable, and you can't feel any seams or transitions between the different parts of the bibs. They are pretty warm and the few extra inches at the knees do make a difference. Very happy with castelli as usual. The L castelli bibshorts fit me perfectly and these are no different, for reference I'm 1.79m tall (around 5'10 1/2") and weigh around 81-80 kg.
Lovely soft fabric with a fleece lined inner combined with the Castelli pad that is super comfortable for long rides. Great for the colder weather.
Extremely comfortable and perfect for chilly rides.
Comfortable bibshorts for riding in slightly chilled weather
Fantastic shorts, fit a bit on the small side but incredibly comfortable and warm. Great fleece backing and length is just right. Can wear with leg warmers to see you through almost any conditions!
My bery first thermal bib short and it's perfectly comfortable, can't go wrong with castelli. I usually go for size L but good thing I learned from other buyers and go for one size up. Most importantly get here @merlincycles for additional great deals!!
Castelli products are always well made and these extra-long shorts are excellent. Sizing is a little small and I needed the next size up for my normal fit.
XLarge is a little too big for me, but it only shows in the length and it works great with the edge piece. As usual Merlin had the best deal of all British retailers and delivered a week sooner to the US than a major competitor. Bravo!
