THE SHORT THAT REVOLUTIONIZED CYCLING SHORTS
In 2007 Castelli introduced the Free Bibshort. It revolutionized cycling shorts with the incredible feeling of freedom it provided. The flat raw-edge Giro leg band and the minimalist Free bib construction have since shown up on virtually every high-end short in the market, and the Free became the best-selling short in Castelli history.
Fast forward to now and Castelli have re-engineered every detail of the Free while keeping everything you love. Their best race short is now both more comfortable and more aerodynamic. They wanted to make it perfect, so they tore down every component of the Free: every fabric, every construction method, every stitch.
Vortex dimpled fabric on legs for aero performance
Forza fabric on inner legs with 38% Lycra® content for perfect fit
Carré engineered lie-flat bib strap construction for minimal coverage, maximum comfort
GiroAir mesh-like leg gripper elastic for better grip distributed over larger area
Reflective detailing on back
New improved women’s-specific Progetto X2 Air seat pad for even greater comfort.
