In the TTT stage of the 2012 Giro d'Italia, Team Garmin-Sharp-Barracuda blazed the Verona course to take the top slot on the podium. Granted, they weren't exactly handed that victory on a silver platter, but that's not to say they didn't have help either; they were all wearing the Castelli Body Paint 2.0 Speed Suit. Like Castelli's signature Body Paint bibshort, the Speed Suit is engineered around the same principle of using a single, seamless piece of fabric to construct the fastest and best-fitting time-trialing advantage possible.
NOTHING MORE AERODYNAMIC. In every stitch, cut and detail, this speed suit is identical to the speed suits we supply to Team Garmin-Sharp-Barracuda. So it’s fast.Very fast. Engineering a speed suit with so few seams was not easy. Check the brakes on your bike before putting this one on.
