The ‘Cross SanRemo SpeedSuit — $350, $250 custom with ¾ sleeve, $270 custom with full sleeve
Pros: Attention to detail specific to cyclocross needs
Cons: Serves a limited temperature range
The ‘Cross SanRemo SpeedSuit is a fleece-lined suit with three-quarter length sleeves and shorts designed specifically for cyclocross racing.
Castelli had ‘cross racers in mind when it designed this jersey, addressing not only warmth, but also convenience, using a large pull tab on the zipper for clumsy gloved hands. Designers also moved the chamois back to avoid catching on the saddle when remounting, while moving shoulder seams so they don’t sit under the top tube when shouldering the bike.
Longer sleeves and a high neck help keep the rider warm, and the one-piece suit won’t expose the belly to the elements.
The SanRemo is available custom.
Again, you pay for Castelli’s unique SanRemo design, as normal thermal skinsuits can be had elsewhere for less. The Voler Isolare Long Sleeve Thermal Cyclocross Skinsuit has insulated brushed-back Poly on the long-sleeved top and wicking shorts, and retails for $124.
