Santini has been producing the Giro's pink race leader's jersey since '93, and no garment better epitomizes the Italian heritage and unrelenting race routes that so often propel the event to the top of the grand tour hierarchy in the minds of true tifosi. While donning the Santini General Time Men's Jersey isn't quite as difficult as earning the actual maglia rosa, its slim fit and race worthy construction mean it won't hamper your efforts any more than the real article. The Maglia Rosa is made from Santini's extremely lightweight and breathable Body Fit fabric, which whisks moisture out and away to keep you cool, dry, and comfortable. The invisible 34 length zipper facilitates additional ventilation without compromising the jersey's iconic style, and the early termination earns some aerodynamic benefits that any cyclist from the current maglia rosa to a weekend racer can appreciate. Its tailored, race specific fit hugs your upper body for a truly form fitting race jersey. As is only proper for a race that favors tiny climbers, the General Time Jersey runs quite small, so you may want to order a size larger than usual depending on your preferred fit. As usual, three rear pockets grace the jersey's backside, offering ample storage for nutritional supplements or promotional snapshots to sign and distribute to adoring tifosi. Other functional features include silicone grippers placed at the waist and sleeves for a secure, flap free fit and raw cut sleeves for premium comfort befitting a champion.
