Respect the backdrop.
Few sports bring us as close to the ecological environment as cycling. Every ride, every pedal stroke, every climb, descent, and rolling road feature the natural world as a backdrop. For many of us, the chance to experience our ecological community from the saddle is why we ride. With the Zero Impact manufacturing philosophy behind its CoolZero Men's Jersey, Santini's making an effort to protect that environment while ensuring that your passage through it is as fast and comfortable as possible.
The jersey's synthetic materials incorporate recycled polymers that are harvested and repurposed with an low-energy production process. Santini claims that 80% of the polyester used is recycled and, while we can't necessarily verify the jersey's chemical composition, we can testify in support of its race-worthy fit.
The long sleeves and extended rear hem maintain clean lines from your elbows to your waist, and the elastic hem and non-slip cuffs lie flat while maintaining that unbroken plane. The back of the jersey features a lightweight, perforated mesh that allows for cooling breathability and a high degree of body-hugging stretch.
