Castelli Free Aero Race bib shorts review
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.
