As low as $299.99
Castelli has clothed seven out of the eight most recent Tour de France champions. Many of the pieces of cycling gear offered by Castelli are the same gear worn by Bradley Wiggins, Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas. Egan Bernal, who won the 2019 Tour de France, raced in the Castelli Body Paint 4.x Long Sleeve Speed Suit, Castelli’s fastest ever speed suit. After the winner of the most prestigious race in cycling history won wearing the Body Paint 4.x, Castelli now offers their fastest speed suit to the general public. The Body Paint 4.x is designed to create aerodynamic advantages at time trials, pursuits, and criteriums. Tight fabrics, long arms and longer legs provide everything that’s required for speed. The slippery fabric used for this race suit is nearly seamless and amazingly soft against skin. Castelli engineers spent hundreds of hours researching where to seam together the right materials. The suit was made for WorldTour riders who required gear that provided the most aerodynamic advantage for speeds above 45 km/h (30 mph). The tight construction fits perfectly in extreme positions. The rider will not have creases in his speed suit as he is tucked deep into the handlebars or stretched out over time trial bars. Long legs with flat endings and flat grip tape keep the shorts in place and create a very smooth transition from shorts to legs. This detail adds another feature that maximizes aerodynamics. The long sleeves have a thumb loop that keeps the arm from riding up. Long arms and long legs are added because they have proven to be the best design for speed. The leg grippers, knitted directly into the leg fabric, don’t irritate skin. In the window pocket in the back, you can place the race number out of the wind. The window stretches and breathes just like the rest of the Speed Suit that is designed to keep a rider dry and cool as race pace hits a high. The Kiss2 Air Seat Pad is thick enough to protect you on long rides in the time trial position while not interrupting with a smooth pedal stroke. The higher-density foam and softer top fabric are more comfortable than ever. The fabric closest to skin is seamless, soft and stretchy. This combination of features provides a surface that conforms to the specific shape of a man’s seat and reduces chafing and abrasion. The padding varies in thickness in the areas that receive the most pressure so the right amount of padding is provided in the right places.
