The Castelli Free cycling bib shorts are ideal for serious riders looking for that extra edge in performance and comfort. This is one of Castelli’s best selling shorts, and they’ve improved it for 2015. The classic feature of the Free bibs is the flat raw edge Giro leg band which has been emulated on high-end shorts from all the big brands.
This year Castelli have focused on blood-flow, by providing the right amount of muscle support without being restrictive. Aerodynamics have also been improved with dimpled fabric on the legs which are claimed to save 10 watts at 50km/h (data gathered through wind tunnel testing).
Comfort is important when choosing bib shorts. The Free bibs are very comfortable thanks to flatlocked stitching and the Progetto X2 Air seat pad. This pad is simply one of the most comfortable on the market - even on the longest rides.
Fit is spot-on, there is no movement of the skin underneath the fabric - they’re fixed to your body. As cycling bib shorts go, these are a superior choice, with all the style and design that we’ve come to expect from Castelli.
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
Doppio V construction in front for increased support and comfort
Reflective detailing on back
New improved Progetto X2 Air seat pad for even greater comfort
These bibs are the best model I have tried. They are well built, they are fast and they look very good.. Only negative, is the size, they fit well and they are tight as you want them. But the straps upon your shoulder is a bit short, so it can be rather tight around the shoulder and your softer parts.. I'm 190cm and 105kg, the xxxl is my size, but castelli should make the straps a little longer.. For a little more comfort.. Anyway I have to pairs and would by them again, cause of the look, the feeling..

You buy these shorts for the quality pad and very good build quality. They are light weight and great on longer distance rides. Remember to go up a size as they're sized on the smaller size.
