Chamois Technology

Our technologies are crucial to the performance of our garments, and we have developed proprietary chamois brands to highlight the quality and feature levels of differently specced shorts.

All the different Santini paddings are designed by us and are handmade in Italy using our specialist manufacturing techniques. We stitch the special curves and depressions on the internal part of the chamois from the inside, so that there are no seams in contact with the skin.

THREE TIMES MORE PROTECTION, COMFORT, AND LIGHTNESS

An unprecedented innovation, C3 is manufactured by using a new process called Carving Technology, which consists in digging (carving) two overlapping foam cores (5mm perforated foam density 60+10mm perforated with density 80) to reduce volume and thickness to create multiple densities without stitching. This special technique allows the pad maximum shock protection, incredible lightness, breathability, and perfect fit because it adheres better to the body allowing freedom of movement. The Rooted Gel located in the ischium (sit bones) area allows for neutralization of vibration when the pad is under stress.

The construction of the front panel features a soft shell (Conch) that protects the mid-section and promotes perspiration, and the closed profile with heat sealing (Closed edge) that allows a more harmonious application of the chamois onto the shorts. C3 is designed to follow the shape of the male anatomy offering protection to both the bones of the ischium and perineal area and is soft and breathable on the skin thanks to an antibacterial microfiber layer.

MIG3

MULTI-DENSITY INJECTED - THE LIGHTEST CHAMOIS WITH A GEL CORE

MIG3 is the lightest of the family of Santini gel paddings. The innovative structure of the central core, composed of a mesh fabric to which we apply a layer of multiple density anti- shock silicone gel, makes the chamois lighter and extremely breathable compared with traditional gel paddings.

The new bottom layer shape, made of soft microfibre, is designed to ensure comfort and to protect the area in contact with the saddle. Two layers of foam increase the anti-shock properties of the padding. The upper layer, a soft antibacterial microfibre, the central perineal area channel and the depressions on the top layer offer great fit and complete freedom of movement, while protecting from chafing and irritation.

NAT

NEXT TECHNOLOGY - THE PERFECT CHAMOIS FOR THE HOTTEST DAYS

NAT (NEXT, Airflow, Thermoshock) is a revolutionary new chamois - it is the first Santini padding from the NEXT generation. The NEXT core is enclosed between two foam layers ranging from 2 to 4mm thick.

The top layer is an antibacterial microfibre that guarantees maximum hygiene while in contact with the skin. At the base of the padding, two anatomical wings in soft microfibre protect the most sensitive areas from irritation and soreness.

GIT

GEL INTECH - THE ORIGINAL TWIST GEL CORE CHAMOIS

The original padding with Twist Gel core; it’s the silicone gel that absorbs shocks constantly and gradually, and always returns to its initial shape, even after long hours in the saddle.

Two layers of foam increase the anti-shock properties of the padding. The soft antibacterial microfibre and the depressions on the top layer offer great fit and complete freedom of movement, while also protecting from chafing and irritation.

THE EVOLUTION OF OUR TRADITIONAL COOLMAX PADDING

MAX2 represents the evolution of our Coolmax chamois. The anatomical shape and multiple-density foam layer make this padding great for any cycling activity, whether indoors or out. Antibacterial properties, the absence of stitching in contact with the skin, and the central channel in the perineal area assure maximum comfort on the saddle. The MAX2 is also available for kids.

TOTAL PROTECTION, COMFORT, AND LIGHTNESS

An unprecedented innovation, C3W is built through a new process called Carving Technology, which consists in digging (carving) two overlapping foam cores (5mm perforated foam density 60+10mm perforated with density 80) to reduce volume and thickness to create multiple densities without stitching. This special technique allows the pad maximum shock protection, incredible lightness, breathability, and perfect fit because it adheres better to the body allowing freedom of movement. Two gel inserts positioned in the support of the bones of the ischium (sit bones) allow neutralization of vibrations when the pad is under stress. Innovative is also the construction of the front panel.

The closed profile with heat sealing (Closed edge) allows a more harmonious application of the chamois onto the shorts. C3W is designed to follow the shape of the female anatomy offering protection to both the bones of the ischium and perineal area and is soft and breathable on the skin thanks to an antibacterial microfiber layer.

GIL2

NEW WOMEN’S VERSION OF GIT CHAMOIS WITH TWIST GEL CORE

Designed to gently follow female contours, we added two soft anti-chafing microfibre wings to enhance comfort and fit. A layer of gel, placed between two thin foam layers, absorbs shocks reliably and gradually and always returns to its initial shape, even after long hours in the saddle. The upper layer is a soft antibacterial and anti-irritation microfibre, stitched from the inside so that there is no stitching in contact with the skin.

PRO GRACE

DESIGNED FOR WOMEN

Developed to perfectly follow the contours of the female anatomy, pro GRACE is ideal for any cycling activity, whether indoors or out. The multiple density foam layers have been developed to offer progressive shock absorption: higher in the area in contact with the saddle; lower on the outside. The antibacterial microfibre, the absence of stitching in contact with the skin and the anatomical wings guarantee maximum comfort on the saddle. For great performance without compromising on grace or femininity.

DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR THE DEMANDS OF TRIATHLETES

GTR is the Santini chamois designed for triathlon. Made of a thin layer of silicone gel with strong anti-shock properties, it weighs less than 42g and doesn’t absorb water - so it doesn’t grow in dimension or weight during the swim. There’s an antibacterial and anti-irritation microfibre layer in contact with the skin that ensures maximum comfort on the saddle.
