    Fast is fast.

    You’ve almost certainly heard the term, "free speed" bandied about in regard to aerodynamically-designed products. We’re not experts, but something you have to buy certainly doesn’t equate to free in our book. Semantics aside, the concept of a component providing a speed advantage via design isn’t new, but its application to clothing is somewhat new, and the Castelli Free Aero Women’s Shorts are a perfect example.

    At their core, they’re as good as every pair of Castelli shorts we’ve tried, which is to say durable, flattering, supportive, and comfortable in equal measure. But, beyond that, the contoured cut and some fabric magic team up to deliver a savings of 10 watts at 50kph, which means that if you’re in the breakaway, you’re spending less energy to go the same speed as the other riders with you. It doesn’t sound like much, but compounded over even an hour-long crit race, you’ll be just a bit fresher when it comes time to sprint.

    Best shorts, EVER

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large

    The bad is so comfortable, hugs my bum perfectly on and off the saddle. The material the shorts are made out of is flexible, breathable and light. They are my favorite shorts, ever! Definitely, order a size up for best fit.

    Love the shorts; might want to size up

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    The shorts are made from a light-weight, compressive fabric. The chamois is a comfortable as any I've ever used. The fit is super, the grip bands are comfortable, and they look great on! I can't say enough good about these shorts. I have 35" hips and am typically an XS or S. I ordered up to a Medium and the fit is perfect.

    great shorts

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs small

    Gave as a gift- " I love these shorts! I have used these a few times and the chamois is just right! I used them the first time on a 40 mile ride with no problem. They are comfortable and the perfect length for me. Looking to buy another pair! I did buy a size up.

    beware

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I loved these shorts when I got them, they fit great and looked great so I was really psyched to have a new pair of shorts. Didn't take long, though, to develop the first saddle sore I've ever had in 14 years of riding. Looking closely at the chamois this time I noticed the edges are not sewn down flat but have a 1/4 inch of fabric loose all the way around. Shoddy construction on Castellis part. Now I've been forced to sit out on nice days that won't last much longer! Never ever again. My pair of $136 shorts are in the trash...

    THESE are the shorts!!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I feel like I've tried them all, trying to find a perfect short/chamois that worked for the long rides. THIS IS IT!! I rode today, 55 miles and never once had to readjust because of an ill fit or a sore behind. Thankfully I bought all three colors 'cause this is my short from now on! Kudos - perfection!
