Youâ€™ve almost certainly heard the term, "free speed" bandied about in regard to aerodynamically-designed products. Weâ€™re not experts, but something you have to buy certainly doesnâ€™t equate to free in our book. Semantics aside, the concept of a component providing a speed advantage via design isnâ€™t new, but its application to clothing is somewhat new, and the Castelli Free Aero Womenâ€™s Shorts are a perfect example.
At their core, theyâ€™re as good as every pair of Castelli shorts weâ€™ve tried, which is to say durable, flattering, supportive, and comfortable in equal measure. But, beyond that, the contoured cut and some fabric magic team up to deliver a savings of 10 watts at 50kph, which means that if youâ€™re in the breakaway, youâ€™re spending less energy to go the same speed as the other riders with you. It doesnâ€™t sound like much, but compounded over even an hour-long crit race, youâ€™ll be just a bit fresher when it comes time to sprint.
Fast is fast. (DWNZLBV)
