Castelli Nanoflex gear - just in

Water-deflecting warmers, plus other cool-weather gear

BikeRadar test riders have used Castelli Nanoflex leg warmers for years now with good results, and we recently received some Nanoflex arm warmers and Nanoflex thermal bib shorts for test. Here is a quick look at the new pieces, plus some other warm gear for the cool days ahead.
