Winter Kit by Santini Cycling Wear

Cycling and having fun even in winter requires clothings that are suitable for every situation and every weather condition. Thanks to Santini Cycling Wear we had the opportunity to test and use for almost the entire winter season the Vega kit: a very elegant suit and really interesting for its completeness (jacket, overalls, gloves and shoe covers) and for its quality (innovative materials and suitable for adverse weather conditions). In these months we have been able to test the Vega outfit both on road and on gravel, also encountering adverse conditions such as rain, mud and wind. All in all, all the components reacted in an excellent way and allowed you to pedal in the cold in a completely carefree and natural way. The cold, wind and water were certainly not a problem! On the contrary, if we have to be honest, sometimes we also suffered from the heat.

All in all, the outfit was promoted with full rates and we would certainly recommend its purchase, especially to those who love cycling in style without neglecting comfort and efficiency.

Here are the features, prices and our exclusive ratings about the products of the Vega Kit:
