Castelli Free Aero Race bib shorts

Our review

Expensive, but fit and seemlessly integrated gel padding makes these ProTour proven bibs worth it
Skip to view product specifications

Featuring Castelli’s Progetto X2 pad and a minimal bib, these are low-fronted with light mesh braces and a single back brace, with firmer Lycra on the outsides and a softer inner material. 


The pad has a four-way stretch, seamless outer layer. It’s soft and conforms to your shape brilliantly. Underneath is a multi-density cushioning layer with breathable centre. We rode these on a Belgian sportive with lots of cobbles and they were faultless. 


The minimal bib design and low front makes them ideal for warm weather but they’re still great all-rounders.
