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.
Every garment we make is developed from scratch by our 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, we invest a lot in materials research and development to make sure every piece in our collection is designed with specific user and riding conditions in mind – then engineered and manufactured to deliver the ultimate performance that World Champions demand. This ensures we make only the finest quality products, and enables us to develop innovative products quickly and efficiently, in-house, in Italy.
