There's something about the smell of espresso that sends us diving into a nostalgic rabbit hole of cycling eras long passed. Maybe its the rivalry and comradery brought by the good old days of Coppi and Bartali, wool jerseys, and five panel cycling caps that gets us going down memory lane, but no matter what way we spin it, we have a soft spot for the early days of cycling. With the Santini 1953 Road World Championships Lugano, Switzerland Jersey for Men we get just the right amount of classic styling to bring us back in time, but with the creature comforts that modern cycling has brought to the table, like elevated fabrics, sleek aesthetics, and aerodynamic cuts that slice through wind like a hot knife through butter.
The 1953 Road World Championships Jersey comes to you in a classic royal blue that's dedicated to Coppi's victory all of those years ago. It fits streamlined and slim, hugging your body to eliminate wind flaps and excess fabric, and is beautifully crafted from a combination of moisture-wicking Kenobi fabric in the front, and silky Shantung in the back. It features raw-edge sleeves that transition seamlessly from your skin to body, and a full-length zipper with rainbow stripes for an additional victorious flair. The back of the jersey sports three pockets for stashing your spare tube, nutrition and tools, but also holds the key to one of the defining features of the jersey — a printed patch to tell the story behind the astounding race in which Coppi went for the breakaway 90-kilometers from the finishing line to earn the gold by over six minutes.
