Castelli Nanoflex bib knickers – in brief review
The Nanoflex bib knickers have relatively lovely legs. Extending well beyond the knee, they have broad, textured hems to hold the bottoms securely in place.
Further comfort is provided by the Kiss3 pad, which provides firm and flexible support. Nanoflex refers to the fabric’s silicone coating that forces rain and moisture from the outside to bead off rather than soak in.
Sweat from the inside is dealt with effectively, if not exceptionally. The shorts’ weight of 225g had increased by 99g after the ride, while 22g was dropped in the following hour.
