The Castelli Meno wind W is fitted with Airflex Thermo front panels that offer extra warmth and aid the evaporation of sweat and moisture. The Thermoflex Core2 back panels provide extra stretch for a perfect fit and allow sweat to easily evaporate. The bibtight uses the KISS3 padding for a comfortable ride. The shoulder straps are made using mesh fabric for added ventilation, while the flat lock seams provide a more comfortable fit. The ankles have GIRO3 grippers, and for added safety the bibtights have YKK Camlock ankle zippers with reflective tape.
The Meno Bibtight is particularly suitable for temperatures down to freezing. Since the tights are breathable, they can be worn for longer than a bibtight with windstoppers as this would get too warm. For temperatures below freezing, you'd be better off with the Meno Wind with windstopper fabric.
KISS3 Padding: Comfort like you’re used to with the Progetto X2 Air padding, but at a slightly lower price. A soft, brushed fabric on the top, a seamless construction, and multiple layers of 2 different densities and thicknesses make the padding highly comfortable.
Thermoflex Core 2: This fleece fabric contains a polyester inner layer and a nylon outer layer, improving moisture regulating properties. The fabric will keep you dryer and therefore warm for longer than the regular Thermoflex fleece fabric. The polyester inner layer uses hollow fibres which trap thin layers of air for added insulation. It has also been woven into a denser pattern to better keep the wind out.
