Fitting for Il Campionissimo.
The Italian Azzurra is as stunning as it is revered and is easily recognizable in any sport, especially in cycling when the sport's best swap out their trade-team kits to do battle in national attire at the World Championships and Olympics. Many great Italian cyclists have worn this jersey but perhaps no other rider was as classy and has quite the legacy as Fausto Coppi. The palmarès of Il Campionissimo is quite impressive and looking back we were surprised that he only had 1 world championship to his credit. But oh what a championship it was and the Men's 1953 Road World Championships Lugano, Switzerland Bibshort from Santini matches the jersey beautifully and its classic styling adds nostalgia, but with the modern accouchements like performance fabrics and a refined fit.
These bibs have a streamlined and slim fit free of excess fabric and sit next to the skin. The moisture-wicking fabric keeps you cool and dry and able to focus on the ride. It features raw-edge leg cuffs that transition seamlessly from your bibs to the body, with a touch of blue on one leg. The chamois gets Git Evo padding with a twist gel core to keep you comfortable enough to launch a winning solo breakaway good for six minutes over second place after 7-1/2 hours of racing.
