Speed. Fit. Comfort. Pure Performance.
Castelli have engineered their Free Aero Race short to be their premier performance short and as such is used by Team SKY as their go to race short. The first Free Aero Race debuted a decade ago and with continuous improvements made in new fabrics and construction methods, it’s the best ever. Feedback from Castelli’s previous professional teams has also led to further developments that add to the pure performance of these shorts.
Castelli designed the Free Aero Race to be fast, concentrating on helping you get the most out of your body by fully optimizing aerodynamics. The other main goal in this short was comfort, because the pros will be riding 30,000 km per year, and a four-hour ride isn’t even considered long, comfort is key. While the Free Aero Race short has been engineered for top-level racing, all its features make it an ideal short for whatever your cycling challenge.
Progetto X2 Air Seatpad
Maximum technology for supreme comfort; The Progetto X2 utilises ventilating perforations to keep you cooler and dryer on endurance road rides. The design allows air and moisture to flow directly to the surface fabric for quick evaporation. The shape of the pad has received minor updates based on pro feedback.
The Progetto X2 Air seatpad is constructed in 3 layer components, each dedicated to a specific purpose to create the most comfortable seat pad on the planet.
- Skin care layer: A four-way stretch, microdenier, seamless, bacteriostatic layer made to adapt to the shape of your body and saddle without any folds in the fabric.
- Seamless integrated technology cushioning layer: Multi-density foam with infinitely variable thickness. The thickness of the pad is engineered to place the padding where you need it most for maximum comfort.
- Viscous comfort inserts: Perforated viscous padding is added under the highly sensitive ishial and perineum pressure areas.
About Lycra Cycling Shorts
Cycle shorts offer unrestricted movement on the bike with the added benefit of a chamois for comfort. They are the traditional cycling leg wear for any distance rider. Lycra shorts hold their internal pad in the ideal position throughout the ride, offering comfort and cushioning for both on and off road riding. Lycra shorts stretch with your body so there are no seams to rub you up the wrong way or restrict your pedalling motion. They are lightweight in material and since there is only one layer of thin fabric, they breathe well and keep you cool on hot days, or can be used under a pair of winter tights. Higher end models will have more panels and will generally fit better, a good pair of shorts is essential for longer rides and combined with a chamois crème make a wise investment.
