Purchased this item with some trepidation, and was gobsmacked by the design, the fit and the overall "performance" of the suit. The fit was,as expected, a race fit, so, near second skin...!!! But the "performance" was better than awesome. The sleeves, back, sides and armpits are a "breathing" wicking materials that draw moisture from the body and let the air passing over your body to evaporate it, eliminating the sweat and, at the same time, providing an intense cooling effect as you ride. The BODY PAINT shorts portion truly DOES fit like it had been painted on by skilled artisans. The PROGRETTO 2 seat cushion feels more like sitting in a ultra soft lounge chair which goes beyond a form fitting, ultra thin seat pad. The integration of the jersey into the shorts is boldly clever and the full zip jersey affords AMPLE ventilation on hot rides.
Caveats - It is a skin suit and fits accordingly...!!! Heeding the "call of nature" for #1 can be accomplished by pulling down the waistband, but #2 can be a bit more time consuming, so be prepared...!!!
OVERALL:....simply BRILLIANT piece of clothing...!!!!!!!!! (Posted on 7/21/12)
What a fantastic innovation. More comfortable than my bib shorts. Light, figure hugging with spacious pockets. If I had my way these would be the only kit in my cycling wardrobe.
Undo the full length zip and you have effective ventilation without the excessive flapping of a normal top.
From a cost point of view, please note that you are obtaining a great pair of shorts with the bonus of a fantastic top.
While going for a pee is at least as convenient as many bib shorts, a "full toilet stop" is a more awkward.
I cannot see significant downside and the benefits are many.
Please remember to buy BIG! Look carefully at the sizing chart...speak to friends with Castelli gear. I am 186cm 88kg and have purchased XXXlarge. The suit is comfortable off the bike and is probably one size bigger than is truly aero. But I wanted room to move when off the bike.
Hope you too are delighted with your SanRemo speedsuit. (Posted on 3/21/12)
