Castelli Men's Free Speed 2 Race Tri Top - 2024Castelli
FREE SPEED 2 RACE TOP
THE RIGHT RACE JERSEY FOR SPEED AND COMFORT
Some triathletes choose long sleeves for the extra speed. Some for the comfort. Some for sun protection. This jersey gives you all three.
The aerodynamic speed is unmatched. It's what Castelli does best. We have a year-round testing and development program with the Norwegian Technical University in Trondheim to make our race gear the slickest around.
The comfort is what comes from our expert pattern engineers and soft performance Italian fabrics. We reduce the number of seams so that there is less chafing and less to bother you when you should be concentrating on pounding out the run.
Sun protection ... well, you've trained untold hours for this day. We focus on speed, but we still manage to block 94% of UV rays with our back Velocity mesh fabric that doesn't compromise speed, comfort or breathability. You may want to add some sunscreen, but this fabric provides UPF 16 protection, which is a significant help. Your cotton T-shirt is probably UPF 8.
Take note of the well-thought-out details: Castelli's generous two pockets lie flat but hold a lot of gear and nutrition. The SnapLock fasteners clip to Castelli shorts to prevent the top from riding up during the swim or bike.

Too tight on my arms and made the wet suit way too tight. Ended up not wearing it for GC 70.3
