The Santaurio del Acebo Bib Shorts are part of Santini's 2019 La Vuelta collection.
The Santaurio del Acebo kit is dedicated to the stunning, mountainous region of Asturias, home to both stages 15 and 16 of the 2019 La Vuelta. Stage 15 finishes on the Santuario del Acebo. Stage 16 on the climb up Alto de la Cubilla. The vibrant yellow and blue colourway is drawn from the official flag of the region. The cross motif incorporated into the bar graphic is known locally as the Cruz del la Victoria. Carried by Pelagius, first King of Asturias, in the decisive Battle of Covadonga against the Moors in the eighth century C.E. The wordmark for Asturias in the design is adapted from an engraving on the stone plinth where a statue of King Pelagius stands.
The bar motif represents all 21 stages of La Vuelta and is replicated across the entire line.
The Santaurio del Acebo bib shorts have the innovative and popular Santini GITevo chamois which is breathable, flexible, anti bacterial and with a Twist Gel core which will always return to the original shape even after long hours on the saddle. With wide raw cut leg grips to ensure a smooth line, and that the shorts will stay in place.
