LIZZIE X SANTINI - FOR THE SUPERWOMEN OF CYCLING
Elizabeth “Lizzie” Deignan (née Armitstead) is one of the most accomplished athletes in cycling. She a former UCI Road World Champion, Commonwealth Champion, five-time British National Champion, Olympic Road Race Silver Medalist, and twice winner of the UCI Women's Road World Cup. Prior to her switch to road racing, the 29-year old English cyclist also won five medals at the UCI Track World Championships. Lizzie is also an accomplished business woman, spokesperson, and expecting first-time mother!
Both her success on and off the bike make us proud to say that Lizzie has accepted a role as a global athlete ambassador for Santini. As part of the new partnership, Lizzie and Santini worked together on a “Lizzie X Santini” collection, performance cycling clothing designed for women, by women. “I have had firsthand experience testing the quality of Santini clothing racing with the Boels-Dolmans team,” Lizzie said about the decision to collaborate with Santini. “I particularly loved the fit and design crafted specifically for the female body. Attention to detail is what makes the difference to me and with Santini I know I am guaranteed high-performance kit that also looks stylish.”
LIZZIE X SANTINI WINTER OPTIONS FOR WOMEN
The Lizzie X Santini collection, new for the 2019 season, officially launched yesterday with the release of select winter items:
PASSO winter jacket
Built with Windstopper fabric (300 GR/M2), Lizzie’s PASSO jacket for women is designed for temperatures as low as 5 degrees Celsius, as well as offers protection from wind and rain. The PASSO is performance fit and features inserts in reflective pixel fabric on the neck and cuffs and offers two zippered rear pockets. Lizzie recommends the PASSO for cold winter rides with only a thermal base layer underneath.
CORAL long-sleeve jerseys
Made of soft and warm thermofleece Lite Pro, the CORAL jersey is easy to wear, comfortable, and warm. Available in three colors, CORAL features sleeve cuffs in double thermofleece, five large pockets, and reflective trim to ensure maximum visibility on the road. The design features a stylized peacock pattern, the signature graphic element in Lizzie’s collection. Lizzie says use this thermal jersey with a base layer with temperatures between 15° and 20°, or with her CORAL jacket on top to face colder weather and rainy conditions.
CORAL bib tights
Train all winter with Lizzie’s CORAL bib-tights! Made of warm and soft thermofleece, the upper brace is designed with an innovative mesh bib to ensure perfect fit and maximum breathability. Our women’s–specific GIL2 chamois with anti-shock gel core maximizes comfort in the saddle.
The collection also includes a packable winter jacket (SCUDO) and a mid-winter jacket (CORAL), and is designed to mix and match with all of Santini’s core winter accessories.
