Never be disappointed.
It's time to face facts: you've spent a huge chunk of your rides standing out of the saddle to avoid riding on your flattened chamois. As helpful as that's been for your form, spending an entire ride in the big ring isn't sustainable. Accept that your loyal bib short has earned its right to retire and replace it with the Castelli Free Aero Race Kit Version Bib Short so you can get back to riding normally, and comfortably, again.
Whether you're building base miles for a fall century or have a full calendar of summer races lined up, the Free Aero blends race fit with long-ride comfort, distinguishing itself as a supremely versatile piece of kit. While you keep track of your computer's ever-changing report on cadence, speed, and power, Castelli's alternating panels of Forza and Vortex fabrics follow your body movements with a contoured fit, stabilizing your muscles during long rides or races. The construction aims to reduce wind resistance while continuously pulling moisture away from your skin on the days you can't avoid riding during peak midday heat.
For the all-important chamois, Castelli continues its successful blend of comfort and functionality in the Free Aero, choosing the Progetto X2 Air to stand loyally between you and the saddle for the entirety of your ride. Stretchy fabric, luxurious cushioning, and a flexible design mean you won't be dealing with chafing or a chamois that can't go the distance. Pair that with supple, light leg grippers and barely-there bib straps in an unrestricting cut and you have all of the makings of a new favorite.

Comfortable bib shorts
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size

I compare these to the endurance shorts of the same brand. These are more comfortable with better leg grips. Chamois is excellent. I like the color combination better than all black. The stitching and construction is better than the endurance model bib shorts and looks less prone to come apart
