PRESENTING THE OFFICIAL LA VUELTA 2017 COLLECTION
We are delighted to present the new collection of La Vuelta, one of the leading men’s road cycling races on the UCI World Tour. The new collection features 4 lines of high performance technical clothing Made in Italy: The Leader Jerseys, Kilometro Cero, Angliru, and the Stages Line.
Each of the Vuelta Leader Jerseys were designed to provide maximum performance and comfort for the athletes that will wear them at this years Grand Tour. Our product and design team worked painstakingly, drawing on Santini's 50 years of experience, to produce a garment fit for a Champion.
The KILOMETRO CERO jersey is dedicate to Puerta del Sol, one of the most famous squares in Madrid's historic old town. It has a wind rose inlaid into its cobbled surface which marks Kilometre Zero or the starting point for Spain's radial main road network. This also works like a clever reference to the Kilometre Zero concept for line races. The Santini-Designed jersey is mix of dark and light blue, and features a motif comprising a sequence of zero in red and yellow, the colors of the spanish flag.
The EL INFIERNO jersey is dedicated to the Angliru climb, one of the toughest in Europe, which has been reintroduced into one of the stages this year. At its steepest, the Asturian climb’s incline easily exceeds 20%, earning it the nickname of “El Infierno”. The Santini jersey is very fittingly in the hellish colours of red and black with the El Infierno moniker emblazoned on the chest where it melds with Angliru name and a repeated fork motif to underscore just how how diabolically gruelling the climb is.
The Santini x LA VUELTA Stage Line represents a series of apparel designed and created to highlight a number of specifically chosen unique stages included in the 2017 edition of LA VUELTA. The fundamental concept behind each item was to draw on elements, themes, and motifs that promote the history of the race, of cycling, and the geographical areas linked to those specific stages.
