Castelli Body Paint 2 Tri Short - Men's $149.95
Better than racing in the nude.
The Castelli Body Paint 2 Tri Shorts are the ultimate in hydrodynamic and aerodynamic race wear. They have been designed to work efficiently in both the water and on land to give you every second advantage you're able to muster.
These shorts were designed with a single-piece, seamless construction so that they are a barely-there layer. By eliminating excess seams and bunching fabric, air is able to flow over the surface more freely. The fabric chosen to accomplish this was a soft, lightweight Lycra. Additionally, the Lycra is tightly woven so that the shorts are 'slippery.' Both water and air remain close to the body, without getting 'stuck on folds or rough textures. This extends the slipstream — turbulent air is controlled and drag numbers decrease.
To keep the shorts in place without irritation, the integrated leg band received silicone gripper dots. The waistband is the GIRO++, which is a wide elastic band that won't pinch your waist during the ride. The shorts also feature speed hooks so that they may be easily integrated with the Body Paint tri top. A single rear pocket holds nutrition.
Finally, to ensure that you're comfortable while slipping through the air, Castelli used its Kiss3 triathlon chamois in the Body Paint shorts. This variable thickness insert provides enough padding for an ultra-distance bike leg and then virtually disappears during the run.
The Castelli Body Paint 2 Tri Shorts - Men's are available in six sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the color Black.
- Kiss3 chamois
- GIRO++ waistband
- Silicone gripper dots on leg bands
- Speed hooks to integrate with Body Paint tri top

Do these have a pocket on the back? It looks like it in the picture, but I can't tell for sure.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: Large
I have biked for years, but ran my first ever TRI and decided it would be an Ironman. So, I ordered MED (typical bike sized clothes) and they were too small; reordered LRG which Backcountry got to me just in time to travel to event. The shorts were very comfortable at the waist and around the legs. The padding was comfortable during the bike but not noticeable during the swim and run. I washed these once prior to wearing and wore them the first time during the event. (I know a cardinal don't do it, but I didn't have much of choice) No chaffing or other issues; finished my first TRI from the couch wearing the shorts that day for the first time. Would recommend to all, just watch the sizing.
