Equipped for cool rides.
Embarking on winter rides can take coaxing for some of us who find the chill of winter best enjoyed with a glass of scotch in a warm arm chair. However, we've learned from seasons past that whisky and ambivalence is not the way to achieve year-round fitness, and so we will ourselves out of our dens and into warm thermal jerseys like Santini's Vega 2.0 Long Sleeve, to spin our way down frosty roads, soaking in the monochromatic, and sometimes dismal, scenes of winter. The Vega 2.0 wraps us in a warm embrace, thanks to its weather-resistant thermofleece, to keep us going so that winter months don't have to hit our body like the Freshman 15 did.
The Vega 2.0 is a slim, form fitting jersey that provides a race-fit ideal for trapping heat against your skin. Made from warm Blizzard thermofleece, the fibers have a knack for pulling sweat away from your skin, so that long efforts don't result in a wet jersey, and instead you can stay comfortable and desert-dry. The Blizzard thermofleece is treated with Acquazero to add water-resistance, so you don't have to worry if a storm begins to brew and you're miles from any shelter. When the water-resistance and thermal qualities are combined, the Vega 2.0 becomes an ideal piece for cool to cold riding, for temperatures ranging from 60-to-40-degrees Fahrenheit.
The Vega's streamlined, race fit is topped off with a high collar to keep the elements outside, and a jacquard elastic waistband with non-slip grip to secure a perfect fit that won't need fussing while you ride. The drop-tail hem in the rear gives ample coverage, so when you're down in the drops you don't have to worry about things riding-up. The back is equipped with three pockets, so you have ample storage for spare tubes, tire levers, and nutrition. Reflective details on the back elevate your visibility on roads when lighting gets dim, helping to alert motorists of your whereabouts.
