When designing apparel for triathletes, all three disciplines must be given equal consideration. The shorts you wear need to function for each distinct leg of the event, with characteristics that allow you to smoothly transition from one sport to the next. Castelli knows how important this is, which is why it's developed the Free Tri Shorts.
The Free Tri Shorts are constructed with Castelli's hydrophobic Instadry Speed fabric. This material's tight knit composition holds your muscles comfortably in place, providing needed protection from run impact and road vibration. A notable perk to the derivative next-to-skin fit is that the shorts won't cause any excess drag, both on the land and in the water. And in terms of the latter, Instadry's hydrophobic treatment provides a smooth surface that cuts through the water. Additionally, this material prevents water absorption from weighing you down during your swim and causing discomfort after T1.
Panels have been joined with flatlock stitching throughout, preventing chafing and irritation during your run or ride. Castelli's GIRO3 leg gripper system and draw cord waist comfortably hold the Free Tri shorts perfectly in place throughout the versatile movements of your race.
The Chamois built into the shorts is Castelli's triathlon-exclusive KISS Tri. Castelli designed this insert to work most effectively while you're in the aerodynamic position on the bike, with unnecessary foam trimmed away to optimize comfort during the run and swim portions of your race. Furthering this concept, the surface of the insert is entirely free from seams. And when mated with the chamois' high engineered elasticity and low, 3mm density, Castelli guarantees that it'll follow your locomotion during the run.
The Castelli Free Tri Shorts are available in six sizes from Small to XXX-Large and in the color White/black/red.
