The Free Protect Race Bib Shorts were initially produced in a response from Chris Froome to protect him through the dangerous first stages of the Tour De France. Castelli went back to the old trick known to track riders, of wearing two pairs of shorts knowing that lycra sliding on lycra is the best way to prevent road rash.

Using the Vortex fabric which is extremely durable, Castelli have added an inner layer of stretch woven reinforced with ripstop grid made from Dyneema, the same miracle yarn used in rock climbing ropes and bulletproof vests. This will help prevent the inner layer from ripping in many situations. Ultimate protection for the hip area just in case you take a spill, beyond the protective aspect of this short, the remaining components are the same construction of the Free Aero Race 4 short.
