Santini Cycling Wear presents the REDUX family of ultra-lightweight, ergo-aerodynamic cycling performance clothing for 2018. Created in Bergamo factory from all Italian materials, REDUX was born from an experiment to push the envelope of what’s possible in a cycling kit.
WHEN YOU GIVE THE WORLD’S LEADING DESIGNER TOTAL FREEDOM
“In many ways, REDUX was a skunkworks project that actually came to fruition,” says Santini lead
REDUX was originally inspired by a new woven fabric called Prey that offered greater weight reduction, thermal-regulation, and friction/drag reduction than the knitted fabrics typically used for cycling clothing. The team then adopted some of our most-advanced clothing-construction techniques, like laser-cut, concealed rear pockets for a reduced aero profile, and thermo-sealed seams that we use to fully exploit the innate super-elastic and compressive nature of that fabric. Those elements, plus a pared down design for a super-clean aesthetic, resulted in REDUX, the streamlined, ultra-high-performance family of cycling clothing that now sits at the very top of our product line.Read More
