Industry-leading cycling clothing brand, Santini, has yet another spectacular kit designed for the Bergamo stage of the Giro d’Italia. With designs created to represent three famous Giro climbs in Italy, each of the three jerseys from the Santini Giro d’Italia Bergamo Collection holds a story in celebration of the climb it represents.
The peloton arrives in Bergamo on Stage 15 after 199km from Valdengo. Lombardia (Bergamo) has its very own cycling Tour, the Il Lombardia, as well as being host to a stage of the Giro d’Italia so needless to say the jerseys are representative of the heart of road cycling. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Bergamo has been described as a masterpiece of history, culture, music and landscape (visitbergamo.net). In cycling, the region is known for its challenging climbs of which the three jerseys from the Santini Bergamo Collection represent.
The jerseys are designed as Rider Jerseys with a body kit sleeve and Karma short similar to the Lombardy kit and the Giro d’Italia Stage Jerseys. Each jersey has its own unique design to celebrate a dedicated mountain, with each one with a climbing graph measured in metres designed on the side panel, which truly celebrates the climbing origin of the jerseys. To complete the kit, each jersey has matching bib-shorts. The Gallo and Berbenno shorts use the new Navy Blue Thunderbike fabric – Nautica – which mixes the current colour trend for cycling shorts with quality performance fabric.
