2020 Castelli Free Protect Race Bib Shorts

Every cyclist knows that the hip is the most exposed part of the body.

Castelli have made this short to be more durable and significantly reduce abrasions if you slide out, whether it's on loose gravel or racing to the last corner.

The protection adds minimum weight, you don't really feel it except in very hot weather, and it's limited to the hip panel.

Strong Outer Fabric: This sturdy fabric increases the chances that you can just brush yourself off and not have to throw away an expensive pair of shorts.

Fabric-On-Fabric Shear: A major cause of the burns on your hip is the shear force when the head of the femur hits the ground and that force is absorbed by your body.

We use two layers of fabric (a variation on the old track rider trick of wearing two pairs of shorts), which lets the shear force slide between the fabric layers.

Dyneema (R) Reinforcemen: The inner layer of fabric features a Dyneema (R) ripstop construction to help prevent the fabric from tearing in more serious falls. It's the same fiber used in climbing ropes and bulletproof vests.

Features: Double-layer side panels for extra protection in the event of a fall. A special smooth layer of our Vortex fabric backed by a stretch woven fabric featuring a Dyneema (R) ripstop grid. Forza fabric on inner legs with 38% Lycra (R) content for perfect fit.

Stripe mesh engineered minimalist bib construction to keep you cool. GIRO4 leg gripper elastic for better grip distributed over larger area. Doppio V construction in front for increased support and comfort.

Flat-lock stitching. Progetto X2 Air Seamless seat pad.

Weight: 203g.
