Only one rider gets to cross the line first. In Castelli’s race short lineup, of course, that’s the Free Aero Race. But this Castelli Italia 16 Volo Bibshort was made to be a close runner-up. Volo, as in Italian for “I’m flying,” is meant to be the workhorse of race shorts. It’s got outstanding fit, our excellent 200+ gram Affinity Lycra, the updated KISS Air seat pad that’s the choice of a number of our pro riders, and the exceptional GiroAir leg gripper. For the race short podium, it’s a photo finish.
