2011 Model No Longer Available
Castelli Nero Classic Bib Knickers - 2011 BCS
We hold on as long as we can into the fall season, applying embro, wearing knee warmers for the early part of the ride, and waiting until late morning to get going, all to continue riding bare-legged. But, at some point, it's just too cold throughout the entire day to waste the time going through the motions anymore. When you hit that point, grab the Castelli Nero Classic Bib Knickers and simplify your routine. The Nero Classics are ideal for days when a full Roubaix knicker isn't necessary, but your summer-weight bib shorts and warmers aren't cutting it either. Or, if you run particularly warm and your winter is mild, they may be all you need to make it through the colder months.
The limited edition Nero Classic Bib Knickers utilize some of Castelli's time-tested technologies, including a KISS3 chamois and Action Micro fabric, to produce knickers that are lightweight, yet durable and comfortable, yet stylish. The Action Micro is used through the legs of the shorts to wick moisture away from your skin while you're riding.
The KISS3 chamois is one of Castelli's longest-running models, and with good reason. It has an extremely low profile while still providing the support and comfort necessary on long rides. It has multiple densities of foam padding, with the highest-density foam placed right under your sit bones. In short, it'll keep you comfortable without making you feel like you're wearing a diaper.
The Castelli Nero Classic Bib Knickers are Black and come in six sizes from Small to XXX-Large.
- KISS3 chamois conforms to your shape for a comfortable, chafe-free fit
- Silicone grippers keep the knickers at the perfect height
- Breathe Lycra wicks moisture while supporting muscles

Not so much a question as a clarification. These are made with the Kiss3 chamois, NOT the AC.

Runs a little small, so if you're borderline go ahead and size up. Chamois is the KISS3, not the AC as listed, though it is still quite comfortable and well-featured. Also, the leg grippers are not the Giro++ material, but is a standard bead of silicone on the inside of the hem.
Still, a great bib knicker for the money, especially when it shows up on Bonktown.
