Santini has supplied jerseys for the Giro's category leaders since '93. As such, the Santini Men's King Of The Mountains Jersey, or maglia azzurra, commemorates the best climber in the Mountain Gran Prix classification with its coveted blue design. This reproduction is made from an extremely lightweight, highly elasticized Body Fit fabric on the back and sleeves along with Rudy fabric along the front panel. Both fabrics have been engineered to allow for rapid moisture transfer away from your skin an especially welcome feature considering the importance of staying cool and dry while pedaling over mountains. Santini also adds an invisible, 34 length zipper to allow for upper body ventilation without compromising the jersey's iconic style or creating the lower belly ridges that often accompany full length zippers. Santini chose to cut the King of the Mountains Jersey with a tailored, race inspired fit that remains next to your skin for a truly form fitting race jersey. As usual, three rear pockets grace the jersey's backside, offering ample space to store ride fuel or a wind vest for breezy summits after you've summited your own local Cima Coppi. Other functional features include silicone grippers placed at the waist and sleeves for security and raw cut sleeves for a clean, minimal fit that will stay in place as you grind out the long gradients of summer climbing.
