Very smooth tire. Appears to be able to stand up to ordinary road debris. Requires week to 10 days of stretching on the rim before gluing. Even then it requires the strength of King Kong to remount it. I recommend tape instead of glue because of the difficulty in mounting. Next time I will buy the Grand Prix, but at $59 the Sprinter is a value.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My original review is below. I emailed Arundel the day after I wrote this review. Two hours after I sent the email I received an email asking for my mailing address. Two days later I had two new bottles that work perfectly. Have not experienced a bottle launch yet. I will continue testing this on rough roads. UCI does not govern triathlon so that is not an issue for triathletes; however, it does apply to any UCI governed time trial.

Original review: Very nice fit in the bottle cage. Just the right width and height for my Trek Speed Concept. Looks like it helps the aerodynamics, but that is not based on any data. Unfortunately the cap leaks. There is a slight mismatch between the tread pitch on the cap and the tread pitch on the bottle. Finished a triathlon covered in sticky red sports drink a few days after I got it. Should have tried it on a training ride before racing with it. Wrapping plumbers tape around the bottle threads seems to help but I will only use it for water in the future. I don't recommend it. It is OK for a free bottle from an event to leak; however, at this price it should work perfectly.

Very poor quality. Not like the other Castelli apparel I own. It has a full length zipper but the zipper will not release at the bottom so it might as well be a 3/4 length. The bottom hem curls up and will not stay flat against the shorts. It lacks the hooks to match my Castelli tri shorts (which I love). This would solve the rolling up problem in the back but the front would still roll up. It does not have the 3 mm of foam listed in the description. I purchased an XXL based on my 43 in chest but it is too big creating drag in the swim. I will not buy another one.
