These seemed like very well made bars, and an excellent value for the money.
Unfortunately they did not fit well for me. I am around 6 feet tall and my arms are a bit too long for these bars. But for someone with shorter arms I think they'd be a good choice.
Also, they were easy to fit on one of my bikes, whose bars have a round profile (cross section). But on another bike I have, with oval bars, I did not see a way to get them mounted, so a potential buyer may want to first check that this will not be an issue.
I gave 4 rather than 5 stars, because I did not actually have a chance to ride with them so 5 starts might have been misleading

I returned jersey this without using it as the fit just didn't work for me.

As with all Santini products I've had, quality appeared to be top-notch, roughly on a par with Assos but not nearly as expensive.

It is a very tight-fitting race cut, which, unfortunately, greatly accentuates my beer belly.

Fabric, stitching, design all seem very high quality.
If you are slender and don't have a beer belly, it will probably look great on you.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have SPD pedals on all my bikes (road, mountain, cross) and have been looking for a light, stiff, racing-oriented shoe that fits my (wide) feet. Over the last few years I have ordered a number of different higher-end shoes, which were all fine shoes, but just too narrow.
This shoe fits me way better than any others (Sidi, Giro, Northwave, Fizik) I have tried. It is plenty stiff for my needs (don't actually race, just like the lightness and efficient power transfer of race-oriented shoes). Can't comment yet on durability, but will come back and revise my review if it turns out to be less than expected.
An american size 11 shoe generally fits me well; I use inserts that are fairly thick under the arch to correct for severe over-pronation. I ordered this shoe in a 46 wide - width is perfect without the shoe being too long.

This shoe is a good choice for those with wide feet.
I wear a size 11 in street shoes and the 46 fits well.
I recently wore these shoes on a hilly 105 mile road ride.
On such rides my feet tend to swell and a shoe needs to have a bit of stretch in it to accommodate that - the SH-MT44 performed quite well.
I bought some Giro Empire VR90's about a year ago and found that, while they do well on shorter rides, they have no ability to stretch, presumably due to the synthetic upper, and so longer rides in them are painful.
Compared to a higher-end shoe like the VR90, the SH-MT44 is not particularly light but at this price point that would be an unreasonable expectation.
While I continue my search for a higher-end, lightweight stiff SPD shoe that fits wider feet, this shoe will be my go-to for long challenging rides, both on and off-road.
