This lightweight winter cool-weather tight keeps the upper leg warm but reduces coverage on the lower leg for a greater feeling of freedom and "just right" warmth.
LW stands for Light Winter, the conditions that are becoming more and more common. Castelli has been making their tights better and better for colder weather, and at the same time, they have seen a drop-off in demand for 3/4 knickers. Castelli LW 2 Bibtight fills that gap.
The upper portion is built to Team Ineos' specs with the Thermoflex fabric that keeps your thighs and intimate parts warm, and then lower legs have a thinner non-brushed water-repelling Lycra®. To keep the lightweight feel Castelli avoided zippers at the ankles, but they put in Progetto X2 Air Seamless seat pad because they know this will be your go-to piece for long fall and spring rides.
