Every year Santini produce a range of garments to complement the Giro d’Italia leaders’ jerseys - this Maglia Nera is from the 2010 range.

Thanks to their sponsorship of the Giro d’Italia, every year Santini produce a fashion range to complement the leaders’ jerseys for the year. This jersey, from the 2010 collection, features a bold contrast between black and pink, and nice elasticated Italian tricolore sleeve cuffs.
Although many cycling snobs / purists now look down on the wearing of leaders’ jerseys thanks to nonsense like "The Rules", however jerseys like this do allow fans to show their appreciation of what is a very exciting annual tour. Santini have capitalised on this in recent years with some great designs - I have three the Barolo (2014), Prosecco (2015) and the Chianti (2016) - can you spot the theme?!
