The good-at-everything race suit The best triathletes are the ones who are good at everything. That's why Castelli put so much into this suit.
Run - At this point in the race, fatigue sets in. You'll love the comfort of this suit. The front Samremo opening construction doesn't pull you forward, and you can open it up when you feel too hot. The fabrics are quick drying, light and cool. The seat pad that felt so good on the bike is small enough you hardly feel it. The two rear pockets compress your gels so they don't bounce around. The long legs with Giro4 leg gripper elastic don't ride up and don't bind. Maybe you'll even notice that you don't have as many burning spots where you've been chafed raw. Somehow, you're thinking that comfort gives you an extra push, some extra speed.
Bike - You relish these couple of hours to put some distance into the other women. This suit benefits from the aero research of Castelli's Pro PR suit but is tuned for speeds ranging from medium to high. The legs and sleeves provide excellent coverage while the back gives decent sun protection and the two pockets hold plenty of nutrition. And you appreciate the Castelli know-how in seat pad construction. Put your head down and pass a few more riders.
Swim - The reduced seaming and long arms and legs help you cut through the water while the pockets lie flat and don't catch water. The fit is snug and the lightweight fabrics don't hold as much water. The shoulder area is extra stretchy for freedom of movement even under a wetsuit or swimskin.
Kiss Tri A stretchy, soft skin-care layer provides total freedom of movement with minimum bulk. The multi-density pad foam is optimized for aerobar position on the bike, and practically disappears during the swim and run.
Rosso Corsa Castelli's Rosso Corsa label is only applied to the highest-level products they make. Every thread and fiber, every curve and contour is obsessed about.
