Our Sorpasso tight is our workhorse performance tight for the cyclist who rides seriously right through the winter months. With the Sorpasso Wind we add a GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ WINDSTOPPER® fleece-backed panel covering your most sensitive parts as well as your thigh muscles to keep them at ideal operating temperature. While many wind tights will sacrifice fit or comfort or breathability for that wind protection, the two-way stretch of this fabric combined with careful patterning makes for minimal compromise and maximum comfort. Everything else on this tight represents our commitment to performance and comfort: the nonwindproof parts are in Nano Flex 3G and Nano Flex Xtra Dry to provide stretch, warmth, breathability and our proprietary water-repellent finish. They’re the best tights fabrics we’ve developed to date. The seat pad is our top-of-the-line Progetto X2 Air for comfort on long rides, and the bib construction is designed for comfort as well. Large reflective panels at the back of the ankle provide moving reflectivity that is more noticeable to approaching cars. This is the tight for you if subfreezing temperatures aren’t going to hold you back.
WHAT IT IS Made for serious riding in cold conditions, this tight brings GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ WINDSTOPPER® wind protection to the upper front portions, combined with Nano Flex 3G fabric for soft, stretchy, warm and water-repellent protection on the rest of the tight. A Progetto X2 Air seamless seat pad confirms this tight’s aim of satisfying the most determined and demanding cold- weather riders.
