OUR SPECTACULAR GLOVE The creation of this product started with a list of the things we wanted to fix about winter gloves: we wanted to make a glove that's warm without being bulky, make it easy to get on and off, make it mostly waterproof without having it suck in dry weather due to low breathability, and make it super comfortable.
We innovated everything on this glove, starting with the base fabrics: we've used a stretch water-resistant windproof outer shell over PrimaLoft® Gold insulation to make it warm, and an insanely soft inner liner that happens to slide easily over even a sweaty hand for easy on/off.
The wrist zipper allows the glove to open almost completely for ingress/egress and also slims up the glove so it doesn't look like a ski glove, even though it's good for moderately cold temperatures.

The main story of this short is the use of our renowned top-of-the-line Progetto X2 Air Seamless seat pad in an otherwise traditional short, but in fact every little detail has been obsessed over to ensure your comfort on your next long endurance ride.
A great pad is useless without great fit. The seams are placed around the hip area to create a perfect shape on the bike. The Endurance Evolution fabric has a soft hand while providing good compression and excellent moisture management. And it's all held in place with the amazingly comfortable GIRO3 leg gripper.
This short offers exceptional value and is ready to deliver lasting comfort on your longest rides.
WHAT IT IS Endurance-level comfort for every ride with Castelli's most comfortable seat pad.
Endurance Evolution fabric provides optimum muscle support and feels drier in nearly all conditions
Anatomic cut for perfect on-bike fit
Mesh bib straps and back to keep you cooler
Progetto X2 Air Seamless seat pad for even greater comfort and improved airflow
IT JUST HAPPENS TO BE GOOD IN THE RAIN TOO Our Nano Flex 3G fabric is the result of a decade of development. It's our best all-around fabric for winter tights: warm, stretchy, luxuriously soft, highly breathable and on top of that it features our proprietary third generation of nanotechnology water-repellent finish. While other companies are using simple chemical water-repellent finishes, we create a nanotechnology mechanical repellency to enhance a chemical DWR finish. You stay drier and more comfortable.
Even though this tight features our latest water-repellency technology, don't think of it as just a niche rain tight. The fabric makes for a great dry-weather tight, and the reduced-seam anatomical cut makes it extremely comfortable. We use the pro-level KISS Air2 seat pad along with a mesh bib and zippered ankles.
This is the tight that's good at everything.
WHAT IT IS The do-everything tight: great in dry conditions, water repellent for light rain and wet roads, reduced seams for comfort, reflective band for visibility. And the tone-on-tone embossed logos give it that tech stealth look.
The bibtight that's great in every possible condition
New Nano Flex 3G fabric is exceptionally warm and soft yet with even better rain protection
NOT BASED ON PRO FEEDBACK Getting feedback from Team Sky this year has meant trips to Belgium, Nice, Manchester and all around Italy, as well as Skype calls based around racing and training schedules. The recurring feedback from the riders is that their Free Bibshort (the same one you could buy in 2018) is really, really good. The only requested changes were a loop in the bib to hold the microphone for the race radio and one rider who wanted his seat pad moved back a bit. And it's not only Team Sky that likes it. The 2018 Free Aero Race Bibshort is the best-selling Castelli short of all time.
So for 2019 we've made some dramatic changes. Not because Team Sky or you were asking for it, but because we've been riding in it a ton and thinking constantly about how we could make it better.There's a new leg gripper that still features a lie-flat raw-cut edge but now has vertical silicone stripes to keep it in place without restricting stretch.
The new fabric allows for better print quality for your custom team production, the same as Team Sky will use in 2019.We've updated the seams to improve the fit and make the short look even better on the body. We've re-engineered the bib straps with new fabrics and construction so they stay cooler, lie flatter and are more durable. The revised Free 3 Aero Race Bibshort also receives the updated Progetto X2 Air seamless seat pad featuring the softest surface fabric you've ever felt in a seat pad. You'll be glad we ignore the old saying, If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

IT JUST WORKS RIGHT Castelli has innovation in our DNA, and we've brought you most innovations in cycling shorts over the years: the first Lycra® shorts on the market, the first synthetic seat pads, the first anatomical seat pads, the first minimalist and flat bib straps, and the first flat leg grippers. All these have become industry standards, and we keep pushing and innovating in our high-end shorts.
The Entrata short is where we bring all that knowledge and experience into a short that just plain works. The fabric is just the right weight with just the right stretch and with a matte finish that looks just right. The KISS Air2 seat pad is just right, as is the GIRO3 leg gripper. And the short fits just right because we obsess over the fit of every short we make.
We wanted this short to be just right for many years to come, so we stitch on the logos and stitch in the reflective panels on the back. There are no logos to peel off, and everything is stitched down securely. This short gives you every reason to step up to Castelli.
