Women's participation in sports is growing at a rapid rate, especially in cycling and triathlons. With gold medal Olympians to inspire the female masses, it's hard not to feel encouraged to "give it a go".
Proud Italian brand, Santini, are the kit designers and sponsors for the women's pro race team, Boels-Dolamans this year. With a team of female designers, access to high-tech fabrics, we're pretty excited about the new cycling and triathlon ranges coming our way.
The women’s collection from Santini is already pretty extensive. Adding to it for 2017 is the new Queen of the Mountains cycling jersey, and the women's specific Tri suit.
The Queen of The Mountains jersey from the cycling range is designed specifically for women. This summer jersey combines two innovative fabrics that guarantee not just complete breathability and comfort, but also a streamlined aerodynamic fit. Artico is used for the front, sleeves and micro-mesh, while the back and sides are made from Half-Moon.
The jersey also features details designed specifically with cyclists in mind, including five handy pockets (three on the back and two at the sides) and an elastic silicon gripper around the entire hem to ensure a perfect fit and a sleek look.
The Sleek 2.0 tri-suit is made from Lycra Monica, a stretch fabric that’s wonderfully soft on the skin and delivers a comfortable body-hugging fit. The special Acqua-zero-water-repellent treatment also means it rapidly dries once you're out of the water.
Made entirely in Italy, Sleek 2.0 has an ITU-approved zip at the back and an elastic gripper that holds it in place like a second skin on the thighs. The newly-designed GTR chamois does not absorb water and has been developed to guarantee exceptional, chafe-free comfort in the saddle throughout any competition.
