Want to cut seconds from your 10-mile TT time? Castelli's Free Aero Race mitts are designed to be as aerodynamic as possible, with a long wrist section that sits flush to the skin. The fingers also benefit from the aero influence and are longer than most, keeping the air flowing smoothly over the back of the hand.
There’s no ventilation on the back so the mitts are quite warm, but the palms do have some holes to minimise sweaty skin. There’s no cloth for wiping away sweat, but there is a reasonable amount of padding and enough grip provided by the silicone detailing.
