The Castelli Nano Flex Pro Omloop Bibshort address the issue of what to ride in on those cold wet classic races.
The original Omloop was designed with pro tour riders in mind, with the goal of providing the perfect short for racing in the cold early season northern classics. Thermoflex fabric is ideal for this, in the dry offering great warmth, flexibility and breathability. Then the pros (never happy this lot) wanted a wet weather version too. So Castelli have created this the Castelli Nano Flex Pro Omloop - crafted entirely (except for the mesh bib) in Nano Flex fabric these are the perfect short for non short conditions.
Nano Flex offers great warmth and stretch while still being able to repel light rain and in heavy rain it still retains its warmth and dries quickly making it ideal for a classics short. Combined with our top level pad the Progetto X2 Air your bum will still be comfortable after 6 hours on wet cobbles - (maybe we need a Progetto padded Nano Flex glove?)
The leg of the Castelli Nano Flex Pro Omloop extends much further than a standard short sitting almost on the top of the knee cap while its scalloped out behind the knee to avoid bunching. The leg end is raw cut and has no silicone or elastic making this a very comfortable short to wear.
