Most of us won't ever get within throwing distance of Sky's watts, but what we can do is kit up in the same top-quality Team Sky Sanremo 3.2 Speed Suit that Castelli provides to the World Tour's top professionals. Blending the comfort and aerodynamics of a speed suit with the long-mile functionality of traditional kit separates, the Sanremo 3.2's utility extends to nearly any type of ride.
The top half of this dynamic duo is a jersey that mirror the venerable Aero Race 5.1, which is constructed using Castelli's polyester Velocity Dry fabric and featuring a tightly-woven construction to usher airflow over your body as you ride. As its name suggests, it also expertly manages moisture and creates a contoured, anatomic fit. Three rear pockets—something of an anomaly in the speedsuit world—provide valuable space for carrying spare tubes, a handful of snacks, and other ride necessities.
The bottom half of the suit is Castelli's popular Free Aero Race Short, which is designed for aerodynamic racing and comfort during long, back-to-back rides. Castelli starts with a blend of breathable, moisture-wicking materials when constructing the shorts, using its proprietary Forza fabric to achieve a contoured fit across the thigh panels of the shorts that will maintain gentle compression throughout hours spent pedaling in and out of the saddle. Dimpled Vortex fabric complements Forza to facilitate efficient aerodynamics on the wind-exposed areas of the shorts along the outer legs and lower back. The large leg cuffs are Giro Air, which is more mesh than elastic and allows for the same secure grip as elastic but with smoother, more evenly-distributed pressure on the skin.
Castelli lines the suit with its top-of-the-line Progetto X2 Air chamois, featuring a luxuriously soft arrangement of multi-density foam strategically placed to provide support on 100 mile road races or 60 minute crits alike without inhibiting your movement in the saddle. A four-way stretch outer layer with an anti-odor treatment and soft, micro-denier surface blends the chamois in with the rest of the shorts for a smooth, unified fit.
