We use eight different fabrics to make a two-piece suit, with every fabric, stitch and component carefully chosen and tested to make this suit fast yet functional for your next race.Free is fast thanks to the water-repellent fabrics that are also wind tunnel tested for on-bike speed. And Free helps you perform at your maximum by providing just-right muscle support and keeping your body cool.Details are carefully thought out, like the Free aerodynamic yet high-capacity pockets, Speed Hooks that can secure your jersey and prevent it from riding up during the swim and bike, and the KISS Air anatomical seat pad that gives more padding than your traditional tri liner yet practically disappears on the run.Even the back fabric shows the engineering in this garment: wind tunnel tested for on-bike speed, it also provides exceptional cooling while offering UPF 16 protection. That means that 94% of UV rays are blocked, providing a reasonable level of protection, but it can be combined with sunscreen for those with sensitive skin. We think it achieves a good balance between protection, cooling and outright speed.

About Castelli Cycling Clothing
Castelli has a rich history as one of the iconic cycling brands, primarily specialising in high end road clothing. Founded by Vittore Gianni in 1876, initially as a tailor shop in Milan, it diversified to include cycling clothing in 1910, for riders such as Alfredo Binda. In 1935 Armando Castelli joined the company, purchasing it 4 years later. Shortly afterwards it began supplying riders such as Gino Bartali and Fausto Coppi. By 1975, it was rebranded to Castelli, featuring the iconic scorpion logo, and shortly afterwards produced many revolutionary clothing products, such as the first lycra cycling shorts, windproof jerseys and thermal cycling clothing. To this day, the brand is synonymous with performance cycle wear, and together with Santini, they supply some of the greatest ex and current cyclists on the planet. If you wish to view more by this classic Italian manufacturer, please view my current Castelli clothing deals.

I originally found this deal at Wiggle, who are widely established as one of the biggest cycle retailers in the UK. The first incarnation of this giant was as a small bike shop based in Portsmouth, named Butler Cycles. A few years later this evolved into Bikes @ Butlers to highlight their intentions to move the business online with the .com boom and subsequent rise in online sales. At the end of May in 1999 Wiggle.co.uk was launched by Mitch Dall and Harvey Jones. A rapid growth resulted in a need to move premises, and so in 2002 it relocated to Jackson Close, Portsmouth. This strong growth continued, and Wiggle has relocated twice since, the first being to Lakeside 1000, and then leaving Pompey altogether for a huge warehouse located centrally in Wolverhampton. Similarly to CRC, Wiggle stock many own brands, such as dhb, Eastway, Lifeline and Verenti, as well as bike, components and clothing from all of the leading manufacturers. Despite it's origins as a bike shop, Wiggle continue to stock equipment and apparel for not just road cycling and mountain biking, with extensive product lines for other disciplines such as triathlon kit, children's and commuters products and also running clothing and accessories. Prompt in delivery, and offering efficient returns and competitive pricing, Wiggle remain a firm favourite amongst serious and recreational cyclists alike, not least because of the customary bags of Haribo they include free with orders to keep their customers sweet!
