Castelli Greater Than Skinsuit | Men's | Orange


road cycling

The cycling industry has become a digital space. From training apps to wireless power meters and automatic uploads, we're always connected, always on the electronic rivet. Given this level of virtual involvement, the race of truth becomes even more refreshing since it pits one cyclist against his own limits — no drafting, no tactics, just carefully portioned suffering. The Sanremo Greater Than Skinsuit is a collaboration between Competitive Cyclist (us) and Castelli (the Italian kit authority) as a celebration of the times in cycling where the suffering is so acute that it's impossible to escape into your own head, let alone the digital space of social media. Sometimes, the unmediated pain and pleasure of overcoming is greater than the need to broadcast your efforts to the world.

Since the Greater Than's focus is on time trials, Castelli's Sanremo 2.0 skinsuit was the obvious choice to base it on. The Sanremo combines the fastest, lightest jersey and bib shorts in Castelli's line — which is an especially notable distinction since that line is renowned for excelling in those qualities. The seamless, dimpled Body Paint shorts make up the Speed Grid's lower portion, and the now-classic Aero Race jersey constitutes the top.

The subtraction of seams and addition of dimples downstairs helps to manage laminar airflow and reduce turbulence while eliminating transitional ridges between panels that could catch wind and create drag. The Aero Race upper does its part by combining a second-skin fit with turbulence-managing patterning in order to reduce a cyclist's aerodynamic footprint.

The Greater Than's front zipper allows for easy natural breaks — a rare luxury before Castelli promoted it to the mainstream — and the traditional road jersey complement of three rear pockets provides storage for the self-supported athlete across triathlons, 'cross races, circuit loops, and long time trials. The suit is finished with Castelli's Progetto X2 Air chamois, which wraps Castelli's Viscous Comfort Inserts and multi-density foam in a bacteriostatic cover that stretches to move with a cyclist during the gradual descent into the pain cave.
