San-ream the competition.
During a triathlon, you’re either fighting against the wind, the water, or both. That’s why your speedsuit has to help reduce the negative effects of both wind and water while remaining comfortable enough to not sap your strength. Castelli’s Free Sanremo Sleeveless suit combines the benefits of the Sanremo and the Free for a skinsuit that cuts through both wind and water like they weren’t there at all.
The Free Sanremo’s main body fabric is InstaDry Speed. This stretchy, form-fitting fabric is fast during the swim and sheds water quickly. Once dry, the Velocity mesh back aids in aerodynamics while, at the same time, it helps heat and moisture move quickly from your body so you ride and run dry and cool. The full-length cam-lock zipper also lets you dump heat in a hurry and makes nature breaks easier.
The seat pad is Castelli’s KISS Tri, a lightly padded insert that dries quickly after the swim. It’s thick enough to take the edge off the long cycling portion of the race, but thin enough that you won’t feel it during the run. The Sanremo Free is built with flatlock stitching throughout. Large back pockets have also been added so you can carry your race-day nutrition.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Top notch tri suit, with an excellent fit. The rear pockets are just the right size in case you need to carry a couple of gels with you on the run. Tested on a half 70.3 tri and the chamois provides the right amount of comfort during the bike and becomes unnoticeable on the run. Overall, the suit fits like a glove with out any chafing issues.
Excellent piece of equipment
