The Castelli Men's Short-Sleeve Free Sanremo Suit slips stealthily under your wetsuit or stands alone with water-shedding and wind-cheating properties to speed into T1 and beyond. On the bike, its nearly elbow-length sleeves add an extra dose of aerodynamics to slice through the air; on the run, its flatlock seams and tri-specific chamois minimize chafing and restriction for a comfortable stride.
Castelli constructs the Sanremo from SpeedFreak ventilated fabric up top and Instadry Speed fabric across the shorts. These form-fitting materials are fast through the water and, once you are on the bike, shed water quickly. Once dry, the Velocity mesh back not only has been proven as a watt-saver in the wind tunnel, it also helps to move moisture away from the skin to keep you dry and cool. Aiding in cooling and ventilation is the full-length zipper, which opens the top of the suit like a standard bike jersey. You can adjust just how much airflow you desire, and it makes pit stops during ultra-endurance races much less time-consuming affairs.
To minimize chafing, Castelli includes its tri-specific KISS Tri Seat Pad, a lightly padded insert that dries quickly after the swim. It's thick enough to support you during that 100-plus mile bike leg, but thin enough that you won't even feel it during the marathon. The Free Sanremo suit is finished with back pockets to hold all of your race day nutrition.

- Q & A
Great Sleeved Suit
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: Large
Great product, I have work it for both a sprint and Olympic distants Tri and it was perfect.. The pad is plenty of cousin and the suit clings to the body well. I am not sure the full sleeve made me faster but, it was nice to have the protection from the sun. Have read comments that the zipper may come loose, I haven't had an issue with this..
How big are the pockets compared to the San Remo 3.2 Speed Suit?
Any idea when more of the white/red in medium will be available?
Question : Castelli Free Sanremo Tri Suit: My sizes: Chest 38"; waste 30" and hip 36.5"... What size should I order, small or medium.. email@example.com Thanks Joe Carr
Hey Joseph - Based on your measurements, I would recommend a Medium in this Castelli Free Sanremo Tri Suit since your chest is not going to fit in a Small. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.
