Made in Italy, Made with Passion
All Santini products are designed and made in-house. Even the materials are made in Italy, because history and tradition are important to us.
Pietro Santini founded Santini in 1965 after taking over a knitwear factory from his sisters. At first Santini was an artisan factory making clothes for others. But, fuelled by his deep passion for cycling and racing, Pietro made the choice to design and manufacture Santini products exclusively in Italy.
We now manufacture more than 3000 items every day, and export about 75% of that production to other countries. But it’s not just numbers that motivate. It’s the passion that makes us intensely proud every time one of our supported athletes wins.
Every garment we make is developed from scratch by our team of dedicated designers. All of them have a deep-rooted passion for cycling, triathlon, and running and, because every aspect of design is crucial, we invest a lot of time and money in materials research and development to make sure every piece in our collection is designed with specific user and riding conditions in mind – then engineered and manufactured to deliver the ultimate performance that World Champions demand. This ensures we make only the finest quality products, and enables us to develop innovative products quickly and efficiently, in-house, in Italy.
That is what we mean when we say: Made in Italy, Made with Passion. Not only does this ensure that we manufacture only the finest-quality products; it also enables us to innovate quickly and efficiently, in-house in Italy.
Every garment we make has been developed from the ground up by a small team of dedicated designers with a deep-rooted passion for cycling, triathlon and running.
We consider every aspect of design as important, which is why we invest in materials research, trim development, fresh construction techniques and pattern development to make sure every piece in our collection is not just designed with the specific user and riding conditions in mind, but is engineered and manufactured to deliver the ultimate performance that World Champions demand.
To help everyone who loves cycling and triathlon to participate in peerless comfort and style, using the highest-performance technologies for a zero-distraction experience. Everything we do is focused on the person.
In 1965, Pietro Santini founded Santini Maglificio Sportivo after taking over a knitwear factory from his sisters. Initially, Santini were an artisan firm producing clothing for third parties but, fuelled by a deep passion for cycling and racing, Pietro began specialising in cycling clothing.
Right at the start, Pietro made a crucial decision: “To design and produce all of our products exclusively in Italy”.
Today, we manufacture more than 3000 items a day – and export around 75% of our output beyond Italy. Someone once called us ‘purists’, and maybe we are – what motivates us are not numbers but a real, overpowering passion that makes us proud every time our athletes win. To help them do this, we are constantly researching innovative materials and new production methods, and working hard to refine and improve our creations.
We made a choice. Made in Italy. Made with passion. We know it’s the right choice.
