Pietro Santini founded Santini in 1965 after taking over a knitwear factory from his sisters. At first Santini was an artisan factory making clothes for others. But, fuelled by his deep passion for cycling and racing, Pietro made the choice to design and manufacture a range of products bearing his own name.
Each and every Santini garment is developed from scratch by a team of dedicated designers. All have a deep-rooted passion for cycling, triathlon and running and this is combined with investment in materials research and development. Every piece in the collection is designed with specific user and riding conditions in mind - then engineered and manufactured to deliver the ultimate performance that World Champions demand. This ensures Santini make only the finest quality products, and enables the rapid development of innovative products in-house, in Italy.
Four promises define each a Santini garment:
FIT - "Great cycle clothing should fit so well that you don't even notice it", Monica Santini, Santini CEO. "At Santini we strive to create garments that fit like a 'second skin', it is what we are best known for."
PERFORMANCE - Santini is a technology pioneer and pro supplier. From our world class chamois technology to our materials research, our aim is to make sure that every Santini product provides you with maximum performance in the saddle.
COMFORT - Each garment is engineered to provide unsurpassed comfort in the saddle, from the materials selected to the strategic placement of each seam.
DURABILITY - Santini Cycling Wear is Made in Italy by our highly skilled production staff with the highest quality materials. Each garment undergoes vigorous quality controls and will last a lifetime.
