The top fabric and fit technology from Castelli's best pieces have been rolled into this breathable insulated winter package. Using a windproof and splash-resistant material on the jacket's upper and a lightweight, highly breathable wicking fabric on the back and for the tights, this streamlined thermosuit keeps you comfortable and warm in any weather condition. Doing away with straps, it wears like a regular jersey and opens with a full front zipper: the 2 pieces are sewn together at the back, leaving the front unattached to diminish unnecessary bulk that can happen with a layering system or jacket. Performance inspired by the Gabba long-sleeve jersey, Sorpasso tight, and the Progetto X2 air seat pad.
- Castelli Windstopper X-Lite Plus stretch fabric is made from a breathable, windproof and water resistant blend of polyester and spandex.
- Thermoflex and Thermoflex Core2 is made from nylon and spandex to keep you dry and comfortable, even in wet conditions.
- Hollow-core fibres used in the Thermoflex Core2 result in a 20% weight savings.
- Progetto x2 Air chamois is made of three layers: top has a seamless 4-way stretch layer that melds to your shape and inhibits the growth of bacteria; middle layer is a multi-density foam with variable thickness; bottom layer is a perforated viscous padding to protect sensitive areas.
- 3 sizable pockets allow for plenty of chews, gels, and bars.
- Locking ankle zippers stay put when pedalling.
- 5cm of silicone-woven Giro3 gripper tape keeps tights in place, and creates a great seal around shoe covers.
- Generous reflective details on the ankles, and reflective tabs on the drop-in pockets heighten visibility when you're out on the road in dreary conditions.
- Elasticized cuffs seal out cold gusts.
- High articulate collar cuts drafts and fits well.
- YKK® zipper with overlapping front opening.
- Castelli recommends ideal wearing from 5-15°C.
- On-bike fit should be close to the skin; the top might feel tight across the chest and a little short in front off-bike. Tights should fit tightly enough to support muscles through compression without inhibiting movement or blood flow.

Gripper elastics prevent the cycling shorts from riding up and leg and arm warmers from sliding down.
A treatment that inhibits bacteria growth and reduces odour.
