Castelli Sorpasso II bib tights
Cycling Weekly Verdict

The fit around the lower and upper legs, including the bum is spot on, although I found the bib straps to be a little restrictive and the waist band was very snug, to the point of being uncomfortable. Not a problem I've experienced on previous models or other rival brand's winter tights.

Reasons to avoid
