In spirit of the Maglia Nera.
Sharing a rich and storied history, the infamous Maglia Nera was awarded to the Giro's last finisher between 1946 and 1951. Epic battles for the jersey include riders hiding out in barns, puncturing their own tires, as well as one rider suffering through the agony of a broken right hand, just to cross the finish line in last place. Continuing this storied legacy, the Santini Men's Giro d'Italia 2016 The Event Line Bib Shorts feature an all-black aesthetic that's symbolic of the legendary Maglia Nera.
Although paying tribute to the historic significance of the Maglia Nera, these bib shorts don't skimp on modern fabrics or technical details. Breathable mesh bibs promote a secure fit while maximizing ventilation to keep your upper body from soaking in perspiration. Perhaps most impressive, the NAT chamois features a multi-layer composition that absorbs fatiguing road vibration when you're grinding away for long distances. The chamois' specially placed anatomical wings ensure irritation-free wear by conforming to your body. Rounding things out, silicone leg grippers eliminate riding up when you're pushing along at a high cadence.
