The 2016 Santini Giro D'Italia The Event Line Men's Jersey celebrates Italy's grand tour with a nod to a historic, lesser known classification jersey. The black jersey, or maglia nera, was awarded from 1946 to 1951 to the rider who finished last in the general classification our kind of race. Surprisingly, this jersey was so coveted that it spawned tales of faked mechanicals, hiding in alleys, finish line track stands, and other such antics in efforts to finish last in the peloton. Though you won't have to result to such cloak and dagger tactics to get your hands on it, this jersey is a perfectly ironic addition to any race situation and will add culturally significant style to leisurely coffee rides. Santini fashions the jersey from an extremely lightweight, highly elasticized fabric, with a double wire pattern that resembles the shiny yet matte appearance of asphalt. The full length zipper facilitates upper body ventilation without compromising the jersey's iconic style. Its tailored, race specific fit hugs your upper body for a truly form fitting race jersey. As usual, three rear pockets grace the jersey's backside, offering ample storage for nutritional supplements or an extra layer. 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.
