The Free Aero Race are a tight fitting pair of lightweight pro-level bibshorts ideal for racing yet work well for training days thanks to their overall comfort.

As race shorts they’re designed to save time thanks to their close fit and the fabrics used throughout. The outer dimpled Vortex panels are designed for aerodynamic efficiency, while the inner Forza panels deliver a comfortable and supportive fit.

Similarly, the longer legs, with wide yet thin stretchy mesh leg grippers that hold them in place perfectly, help with aerodynamics and temperature regulation on hot days.

Inside, the Progetto X2 Air inner pad sits without issue delivering a quality ride however long you’re out.

These are a classy pair of race shorts designed to be supportive but come up small so most of us mortals will probably need to size up. Considering the overall quality, fit and ride performance the price is more than reasonable.
