Santini Tech Wool Long Sleeve Jersey $249.95
Embrace the past.
While Santini has fully embraced the technological world of synthetic fabrics, it also acknowledges that timeless fabrics and designs will always have their place. For this reason, Santini created its Heritage Collection, with the standout piece being the new Tech Wool Long Sleeve Jersey. Its stunning design will have you yearning for the days of down tube shifters and toe-straps, while its cut and quality will afford you the modern-day comfort that you demand.
Santini constructed its Tech Wool jersey from a blend of wool and a touch of polyester. Besides being known for its warming properties, wool is what's called a hydrophilic fiber, meaning that it has the natural ability to positively interact with water. In fact, it's able to absorb as much as 30% of its weight before exuding the sensation of wetness. Additionally, it's naturally antimicrobial, so you'll experience next to no stink.
This property is furthered by wool's natural ability to disperse electrostatic charges. So, the jersey will pick up less dirt, grime, and lint in the first place. But you might be wondering, if wool is such a magical fabric, then why didn't Santini use 100% wool? Well, the one missing feature of 100% wool is that it's unable to be sublimated. Santini added polyester to the jersey so that it could receive the same graphic treatment as synthetic jerseys, as well as to add a bit more stretch to the jersey.
The jersey is cut with set-in sleeves for a precise, conforming fit. The back is slightly elongated so that it doesn't ride up while you're in the saddle, and rib-knit cuffs and collar are both non-binding and flexible. The jersey is finished with a full-length zipper, and because you'll always need to carry a patch kit and coffee money, the jersey features three generous back pockets. Adding to the classic appeal of the wool styling, each pocket is secured with a metal button.
The Santini Tech Long Sleeve Jersey is available in six sizes from Small to XXX-Large and in the colors Grey and Red.
