Santini is paying homage to this year’s Paris-Roubaix with two capsule collections fittingly called the Hell of the North and the L’Enfer du Nord, which celebrate the famed Spring Classic with fiery colors and intricate patterns that mark the cobbled sectors.
The collections comprise both men’s and women’s jerseys, jackets, vests, bibshorts, baselayers, technical t-shirts and accessories.
Perhaps, the most technical garment in the collection is the jacket, which features the breathable waterproof fabric technology by Polartec called NeoShell.
“For years the outerwear industry has prioritized excessively high waterproof ratings that sacrifice the breathable performance needed during physical activity. NeoShell provides the strength and durability of a weather protective fabric, while still allowing dynamic air exchange and comfortable full range of motion. By engineering optimal pore size and placement, NeoShell releases heat and perspiration without high pressure build up. Continuous air exchange enhances natural thermoregulation, while still providing the needed protection from all outside elements,” explains Santini.
The capsule collections were created as part of Santini’s agreement with the Amaury Sport Organization, race organizers of Paris-Roubaix Classic, as well as Tour de France and other preeminent races.
The collections are available at www.santinicycling.com, as well as from select dealers worldwide.
