San­tini jacket & trail shoes

Top Ital­ians San­tini have al­ways

dis­played bags of style and this con­tin­ues in 2018 with their new H Way jacket range. The slim-fit Yel­low Fluo seen here, like all of San­tini’s range, is de­signed and hand­made in Italy, and is aimed to­wards cold win­ter rid­ing. The ma­te­rial is con­structed with a Fuga Wind­stop­per fab­ric that also of­fers a high de­gree of in­su­la­tion and wa­ter re­sis­tance, with the multi-panel de­sign and stretch­i­ness de­signed to adapt to all body shapes for a su­pe­rior fit. In terms of fea­tures, there’s a trio of rear pock­ets for nu­tri­tion, tools and stash­ing gloves, re­flec­tive pip­ing and those yel­low shoul­ders and arm for added vis­i­bil­ity (some­thing sur­pris­ingly lack­ing on many bike jack­ets), plus the ad­di­tion of a Bliz­zard thermo fleece on the side pan­els and cuffs. San­tini are also proud of the dura­bil­ity of the hand­made ma­te­rial, claim­ing it’ll sur­vive hun­dreds of washes and years of use. We’ll be test­ing it on win­ter rides soon.
