Santini Women's Sfida Short Black/Aqua


The Santini Sfida Women's short features the popular and comfortable cross-over waistband and the Women's Gil EVO chamois.

The Women's Gil EVO chamois has a gel core and extra foam layering for comfort on longer rides. The chamois is flat stitched into the shorts to ensure no rubbing occurs and has plenty of side coverage when moving on the seat.

The short has a soft feel Lycra wide band waist finish with higher coverage to ensure the short never feels like it will fall down. A semi-matte supportive Lycra is used throughout and the legs are laser cut, but feature a heavier gauge Lycra on the inside panel which is lined wit honeycomb pattern silicone to hold short in place without cutting in. 

The short is finished with 2 reflective strips on the back of the leg to make sure you are seen in low light conditions.

  • Comfortable high coverage, wide band cross-over design
  • Heavier gauge semi-matte finish Lycra
  • GIL EVO chamois design - Foam channel design with gel core
  • Flat stitching around the chamois minimises rubbing
  • Inside leg only leg gripper design holds shorts in place without cutting in
  • Aqua colouring on half of the waist band for a dash of colour
  • Reflective strips on the back of leg for visibility

Good shorts

Shorts are good, I bought a size larger than normal based on the disclaimer and am glad I did.

Made in Italy, which means decent working conditions for the manufacturing labour. You pay for this, but these shorts are a reasonably ethical choice in my view.

Great knicks

Assos have another great set of cycling knicks with these. Super comfortable and a great fit.

Really Comfortable

I had to guess on size as my measurements didn’t match with size chart but guessed correctly as the jersey fits well.
Love the fabric!

Love these gloves

The best fitting gloves I have had.

Very Happy

I had to guess on the size as my measurements didn’t line up with the size chart but guessed correctly as they fit perfectly.
Love the clasp at front for easier pit stops. Great Chamois!
