Free Protect Race Bib Short

We’ve all gone sideways at one point in our riding careers: whether from going too fast into a turn or sliding out on gravel, we bear the scars from road rash and still long for that torn-up pair of bibs. Castelli worked with pro riders like Froome to develop the Free Protect Race Bibshort, engineered to mitigate the signs of road rash on your kit and skin alike, while still performing and fitting as a top-tier bib. Castelli constructs the Free Protect Race bib with two layers of fabric along the outside of the hip and thigh. The two layers of fabric act as a slip plane, moving past one another much more smoothly than does fabric on skin or, more dreadfully, skin on tarmac. Castelli makes sure the bib is as comfortable and high-performing as it is protective with their Progetto X2 Air insert and minimalist mesh bib upper.

  • A road and gravel short with incognito protection
