Santini and the UCI Track Champions League have partnered once again this year to create custom edition versions of the Italian brand’s Viper Z2 TT Speedsuit, which will be donned by 72 male and female riders at this month’s track championships on the glorious island of Majorca, followed by events in London on December 3.
“To create a more dramatic visual and maximise the event’s impact and appeal, all of the competitors will be wearing the same kit. And this is where Santini comes in. the Italian cycling wear company was asked to supply customized speedsuits for the competitors taking part in the League as well as the classification leader jerseys. This means that each of the cyclists taking part in the UCI Track Champions League will receive one of our Viper Z2 TT speedsuit. The design of each one will be inspired by the wearer’s nationality, including their nation’s flag, and the UCI Track Champions League logo. Santini will also be supplying the four official leader jerseys for the top speed specialists and the best endurance athletes, men’s and women’s,” says Santini.
According to Santini, the partnership involved both huge organizational and supply demands, wherein 170 Speedsuits across all sizes must be made to accommodate each rider in just two weeks.
“The production timescale for these suits depends on the qualifiers so it is much tighter than normal technical times,” explains Paola Santini, Marketing Manager at Santini Cycling Wear. “From the moment we get the word on the sizes from the League, we had just two weeks to actually make them and then a few days to deliver the kits directly to the Velodrome hosting the first round,” she adds.
However, thanks to Santini’s completely, in-house production capabilities at its Bergamo facility, precise control of the entire process ensured that the Speedsuits were ready for this weekend’s first round of racing.
