Responses like this from our Team Cannondale-Garmin riders mean the Free Aero Bibshort is doing exactly what it is made for. It's Castelli's best effort at what a race short should be:

FAST. Castelli developed the Vortex dimpled fabric for the side panels and the new structured GiroAir leg band that helps induce turbulence to improve through the air. In fact, Castelli's wind tunnel testing of the 2015 Cannondale-Garmin team-issue Free short showed a 10-watt improvement from the 2014 Body Paint bibshort at 50km/h. That's the same fast short that you can get in three different graphic treatments or in a customer design through Castelli's Servizio Corse program.

COMFORT. Six-hour races or training rides mean everything has to be right. Castelli's Progetto X2 Air seat pad went through five modifications to improve it for this short. The race fit follows your every move. An we engineered a new bib strap yoke to better follow your body when in the cycling position. Seams are flat to prevent irritation.

PERFORMANCE. Castelli have made this short to help your body perform. The Forza fabric has 38 percent Lcyra content to help support your muscles. The Free bib strap is a minimalist design so you don't have layer holding in heat while also not impeding stomach breathing at maximum effort. The Giro Air leg elastic spreads the load over a wider area so as not to constrict blood flow.

A true race short has to tick a lot of boxes, and this list represents just some of the objectives in Castelli's 18-month development process- all focused on the goal of hearing the approval of Castelli's pro riders, the toughest critics, as Castelli work to make the perfect short for you.

You're reviewing: Castelli Free Aero Race Team Version Bibshorts

After a brief but promising cycling career, Maurizio created his eponymous brand in 1974 and a series of firsts would follow: the first Lycra shorts used in racing and sold to the public, the first colored shorts, the first sublimation printed jerseys, the first synthetic winter clothing, the first use of windproof membranes, the first hydrophilic fabric treatments, the first anatomic seatpad, the lightest jersey ever produced, and the most aerodynamic jersey ever produced. Maurizio’s vision was to be at the forefront of technology, performance and design. Maurizio Castelli died in 1995 while cycling up the Cipressa climb, the next-to-last hill in the Milano-San Remo course.

Today, Castelli is dedicated to continuing Maurizio’s dream: to create the most innovative clothing for the cyclist seeking maximum performance.
