Castelli Nanoflex gear – just in

Water-deflecting warmers, plus other cool-weather gear

Castelli’s Nanoflex technology keeps out light rain and road spray without affecting the flexibility or breathability of thermal garments. 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.
