The UCI Road World Championships reaches its 100th anniversary in 2021 and Santini is celebrating the event with a special collection including a men’s and women’s jersey decorated with the names of male and female UCI Road World Champions, plus a Limited-Edition jersey with gold details.
The next UCI Road World Championships take place in Flanders, Belgium from 19th to 26th September. This year’s competition will be very special, as it marks the centenary of the event – a significant milestone that Santini, Official Partner of the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) since 1988, is celebrating with a special collection.
The line pays tribute to 100 years of UCI Road World Championships and includes a men’s and a women’s jersey, both bearing the names of cycling legends, and a Limited Edition of the UCI World Champion jersey numbered and with gold details with 1,000 items available for sale only.
The men’s jersey dedicated to 100 years of UCI Road World Championships celebrates cycling legends, featuring the names of all the cyclists who have won the world title in the road event from 1921 to 2020. The jersey is made using a combination of light, highly breathable micromesh fabrics with raw cut sleeves.
Similarly, the women’s version bears the names of female champions whose names have entered the Championships’ roll of honor. It, too, is made using a combination of micromesh fabrics and is cut to suit the female figure.

About Santini Cycling Wear
Santini Cycling Wear was founded in 1965 by Pietro Santini who spotted a market for technical cycling clothing as a result of his abiding passion for the sport and competition. In what would seem like a revolutionary and contrarian choice today, the Bergamo-based company made the pivotal decision to design and manufacture all of its products exclusively in Italy. Each item is designed and developed by a design team with a deep-rooted passion for the two-wheel world to meet four key requirements: fit, performance, comfort, and durability.
Santini currently produces 3,500 items of clothing per day and exports 80% of its output. It is deeply committed to ongoing investment in researching and developing innovative textiles and new production methods. However, people – athletes – remain its central focus as it continues to refine its creations to allow cyclists to pursue their sporting passions in a comfortable but inimitably stylish kit (www.santinicycling.com)
