A special jersey is ready to debut this Thursday evening at 9.30 on RaiSport, during the official team presentation of the Giro d’Italia 2019. A new special edition designed by Santini Cycling Wear for the NIPPO Vini Fantini Faizanè team for the Giro d’Italia n.102 and the Tour of Japan. A white design, with #OrangeBlue inserts, perfectly matched with the De Rosa team edition bike.
The NIPPO Vini Fantini Faizanè will ride with a “white look” for the Pink Ride. The Italian brand Santini, official partner of the team since the 2018, has designed the Special Edition Jersey of the Italian-Japanese Professional team for the two most important races of the season: the Giro d’Italia and the Tour of Japan. The most relevant color will be the white, for the first time in the history of the team, in honor of the Japan as a country and in honor of NIPPO Corporation as main sponsor, that is back in Giro d’Italia in the last complete year before the Tokyo Olympic Games. The usual main colors will be strongly part of the jersey, with inserts in blue and orange, while the shorts will remain in the original blue navy.
New positions also for some partners with the Italian brand “L’Isola dei Tesori” moving in the front and the NIPPO Corporation brand moving also to the side of the jersey.
To ride the 21 stages of the Giro d’Italia the #OrangeBlue riders will use products coming from the Santini Custom collection, available for all the fans. From a technical perspective, the jersey is the classic slim fit cut demanded by elite athletes. The front is made from extremely breathable Kenobi fabric with an elastic blend at the back. The sleeves are raw cut and made from aerodynamic, body-hugging Bodyfit. The bib shorts are made from Thunderbike Power which exerts a gentle compression on tired muscles, with side sections in the customisable Lycra Monica. The chamois pad is the top-of-the-range Santini C3, which guarantees superb comfort, lightness and shock absorption thanks to Santini’s signature Carving technology.
Replicas of the official kits will be available from the santinisms.it website and select cycling stores worldwide.
