Nestling, Nimble Knickers.
The Women’s Chic Knicker from Castelli is equipped with soft, insulating, and lightweight Thermoflex, ensuring your legs are sufficiently nestled yet nimble for cool - but not too cold - weather cycling. Castelli’s plush, Thermoflex fabric is soft against the skin and stretchy for a glove-like, ergonomic fit. The waistband features soft, double-layered construction to ensure you’re never constricted and uncomfortable. While lightweight, Thermoflex yields impressive insulation and moisture management. As the body warms and perspires, Thermoflex traps a layer of warm air against your skin for long-lasting insulation while transporting moisture to the surface where it rapidly evaporates to regulate your body temperature and maintain optimal dryness.
For all-over comfort and enhanced ergonomics, the knees embody an articulated design and an extra layer of fabric. The articulated construction mirrors the natural bend of the knee for a more comfortable fit and increased freedom of movement. An additional layer of fabric around the knees ensures adequate joint protection - a necessity in cycling when the temperature drops.
The Women’s Chic Knicker comes with Castelli’s KISS Air seat pad, featuring a brushed microfiber, seamless top layer with antibacterial treatment to help prevent saddle sores. Its anatomically mapped shape and dual density foam of varying thickness - thicker in the sit bone region and thinner along the edges - provides optimal cushioning throughout the chamois.

Warm and comfy
This is my first pair of knickers, and will definitely not be my last! The chamois is comfortable (although I have yet to take it out for more than 60 miles), the waistband is high enough in front to be comfortable, and the leg openings don't bind up around my knees. I've heard that Castelli runs small, but that's not my experience. I wear a medium in all other brands, and so I ordered a medium of these as well, which fits just fine.
