Castelli Free Womens Tri Short
The Castelli Free Range:
Free is fast thanks to the wind tunnel tested, water-repellent fabrics that are utilised in its construction, for superior on-bike speed. Free helps you perform at your maximum by providing just the right level of muscle support, while keeping your body cool.
All the details have been carefully thought out, like the Free aerodynamic yet high-capacity pockets, Speed Hooks that can secure your jersey and prevent it from riding up during the swimming and cycle legs, and the KISS TRI anatomical seat pad which gives more padding than your traditional tri liner, yet practically disappears on the run.
Even the back fabric shows the engineering in this garment: wind tunnel tested for on-bike speed, it also provides exceptional cooling while offering UPF 16 protection. That means that 94% of UV rays are blocked, providing a reasonable level of protection. This can be combined with sunscreen for superior protection, particularly for those with sensitive skin. Free achieves an excellent balance between protection, cooling and outright speed.

Kiss Tri-Pad: A multi-density kiss tri-pad foam is optimised for the Aerobar cycling position, and practically disappears during the swim and run legs of your triathlon. Constructed from two different layers for maximum comfort:
Seamless Skin Care Layer – A super soft, brushed microfiber top that maximises comfort and fit. Seamlessly engineered to eliminate chafing and abrasion. Flexible to move with you. Bacteriostatic treatment to avoid saddle sores and infections
Multi Density Foam – Specifically designed for the triathlete. Minimum bulk doesn’t get in the way during the swim and run legs. Extra fast drying foam prevents chafing on the bike
Instadry Speed Fabric: Gives you just enough compression to support muscles but never constricts movement. Dosen't absorb moisture so it stays light in the water
