How to take care of your Santini cycling and triathlon wear
Here are a few of the secrets that we've learned over the years to keep your kit performing at its best and last longer.

- Use the new Santini POWER CLEAN SPORT detergent, totally biodegradable and dermatologically tested
- Do not use fabric conditioner
- Avoid the tumble drier
- Avoid using washing powder, favor liquid detergent
- Turn the garment inside out
- Wash similar colours together
- Wash straight away
- Do not iron
POWERED BY POLARTEC® POWER WOOLThis garment features Polartec® Power Wool™, a revolutionary, bi-component knit fabric that combines the best of both natural and synthetic fibers, all without blending.
5000 mm water columnThis garment is 5,000mm waterproof. This means that a test has been conducted where a long tube is placed over the fabric and the tube is then filled with water. 5,000mm or 5 metres (16.4 ft) is how far you could fill the tube before water would start to leak through the fabric. So in theory, you could stand out in the rain until 5,000mm of rain fell before you would start getting wet.
Again, just perfect!!!
Perfect for 10-20 degree celcius
It makes my thighs really warm and is breathable enough between 10-20 C. Satisfied with this.
Extremely happy with my new outfit.
Everything you need, nothing you don’t want
After a while you don’t know they’re there. When first worn you notice the softness and the warmth of the wool. The legs don’t grip so tight that pulling them over leg-warmers is a trial of strength, but tight enough to keep everything in place. The braces (suspenders for are American cousins) are soft but not too stretchy and the woollen back panel keeps the base of the back nice and warm. In short (pun intended), excellent.
Instantly amazed once I wore it
Living in Belgium, once the cold comes, you embrace it, or at least do your best. I figured I was not ready for full tights yet so I looked into the Adapt bib shorts; Best choice I made. Before owning them, I was wearing a pair of summer shorts at 9 degrees and found my upper thighs frozen. Once I put these on and rode home, it was as different as night and day. My upper thighs were perfect and my lower exposed legs were cold, proof that the polartec inner fleece lining works! If you like to ride in cold weather but still show off a little leg, these bib shorts are for you.
