HOTTEST NEW GEAR
£180 Beat the cold and win in the style stakes with the Italian brand’s latest slim-fit bike jacket
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.
