Stylishly adaptable, the Santini Alba shorts deliver long lasting comfort, freedom of movement and power fabric for compression and comfort.

Made from Thunderbike Power fabric, the fold over construction of the high waist band keeps the shorts in place. The Alba shorts include a new female specific wMAX chamois which is perfect for bot indoor and outdoor activities.

Santini’s Summer Comfort range delivers a classic Italian fit with Santini style and durability. This range is for women who ride for the love of cycling and enjoy wearing fashion forward kits but are also looking for comfort and performance durability in their cycling clothing. If you are riding your bike and forget about what you are wearing (other than you looking fab) due to the efficiency of the garment then Santini has done its job.


  • Renowned Thunderbike Power compression fabric reduces muscle strain

  • The wMax foam chamois pad for indoor and medium outdoor activity of up to 3 hours

  • Reflective highlights ensure safer riding in the dark. 

  • Temperature range + 18 to +35



 


Santini Size Guide

As an Italian brand, Santini make beautiful clothes but some people can find they err on the small side.

The fit does vary somewhat between products, with some more snug than others - if in doubt, go for the bigger of two sizes. If you are still unsure, feel free to contact us.

 

Tops & Bottoms

Although the sizes are the same for all Santini tops, they offer 3 different fits. Each jersey will be true to one of these. They are:

  • Race - for true race fit, both jerseys and shorts will be compression and deliberately very tight and aerodynamic;
  • Slim - this is a compromise fit, offering good technical riding detail, high end materials and a cut that is snug without being as fitted as 'Race';
  • Classic - a more relaxed fit for riders who are more concerned with adding to their comfort than actually winning the race! No reduction in technical quality, however.

        Jersey & Shorts: 3 Santini Fits

         

        All Santini products are designed and made in-house. Even the materials are made in Italy - because history and tradition are important.


        Santini are a brand we’ve known for a long time. Italian to the core, we’d always been impressed by their attention to detail and quality of finish, but it was only in 2017 that we really started falling for their designs. And once we’d fallen, there was no looking back!


        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.


        They now manufacture more than 3000 items every day, and export about 75% of that production to other countries. But, as they explain, it’s not just numbers that motivate the team at Santini. It’s the passion for cycling that makes them so proud every time one of their supported athletes wins. And that trickles down to each one of their products.


        Every piece of kit they make is developed from scratch by Santini's in-house 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 - they invest a disproportionate amount of time and money in materials research and development.


        That ensures that specific user and riding conditions are the focus at Santini, which in turn guarantees that they make only the top quality products, and enables them to develop innovative products quickly and efficiently, in-house, in Italy.

        We aim to dispatch all orders within 2-3 working days, often sooner. Within the UK we use Royal Mail's Tracked 48 service - you will receive a tracking code with your order.

        Next Day Delivery (guaranteed by 12pm with Royal Mail) is available on some products when ordered before 1pm. This option will be shown next to the specific product when available.

        If your particular size is not shown, feel free to contact us by email at contact@velovixen.com. Please note some deliveries may take longer if we need to order a product in.
