Big fan of Castelli sizing and finish quality but couldn't use their chamois for any longer than 2/3 hours.
Any news of that in the catalogue?
Progetto X2 Air chamois for 2020.

I found this on eBay, Rapha chamois in Ian Stannard's 2018 Team Froomey Speedsuit.
Ian Stannard is 83 kg (183 lbs) & 1.89 m (6 ft-2in) and wears size LARGE.

Second image is another Rapha chamois in Luke Rowe's 2018 Team SanRemo3.2 Speedsuit.
Luke Rowe is 72 kg (158 lbs) & 1.85 m (6 ft-1 in) and wears size MED.

The first purple one looks like an Elastic Interface chamois made for Assos.

The first one is an ASSOS chamois. Quite common that pros do this.

It is a proprietry ASSOS chamois made by EI, difficult to tell, but a Mille chamois I think. Those are the ones which we have used, when replacing others brands' chamois for professional riders. I wasn't involved in Ian's though.

Not a fan of color fade... but it is being pushed again... mostly on frames.

Still too many logos. Always a castelli weakness. Like bmw has done in the last 10 years... overusing it on everything.

Very Italian - look at Sidi shoes for example. There is no confusion about who makes them.

Is the tight sizing the same as shorts? I wear a L in Free Aero Race bib shorts, looking at some bib tights for this winter.

I wear size small castelli bib shorts (and they are pretty tight) but use the medium nanoflex bib tights. My only complaint about them - and these are a few seasons old, so I am not sure if it holds for the current ones- is that the legs bind a bit behind the knees. The legs are cut straight, so even though the fabric is nice and stretchy it bunches up at your popliteal fossa when your leg is maximally bent while pedalling. It would be better if there was a gusset or if they were cut with a seam behind the knee to shape the leg of the garment in a position of function.

Does anyone own Transparente V Jersey? I have Transparente Due jersey and it is probably the best gear I've ever owned. I am thinking about getting it but haven't seen any reviews online. Also price is a liiiiitle bit steep.

Got the same problem with my Classic Thermosuit, which has the same extended knee cut of Nanoflex Pro Omloop. Hurt so much during my bike trip and rolled it up. The cutting is a fail.

Seems par for most different brands of bibtights to be a bit tighter fitting. The dimensions are basically the same, but the thicker fabrics aren't as elastic.

Has anyone used the PROSECCO WIND SS base layer?
If it does what they say it would allow me to use light jerseys which i prefer at this time of the year.
