TESTING MAKES PERFECT The July 2011 issue of Cycling Plus magazine had a head to head test of top shorts from 18 different manufacturers, and the Free Aero Race Bibshort was named absolute best. As in racing, results like that come from years of hard work and preparation. This short debuted in 2007 but benefits from years of constant refinement, including 4 years of ProTour testing, as we try new ways to make it better. The changes for 2012 are only in the Progetto X2 Air chamois and the Giro3 leg gripper because its getting harder and harder to find things to improve. Three fabrics provide technical attributes unmatched by others: 1 Action micro fabric in the saddle contact area provides durability, 2 Energia micro fabric on the sides and back provides outstanding stretch and excellent return, and 3 Breathe micro fabric in front provides enhanced breathability.
