Santini are delighted to present the new collection of La Vuelta, one of t he leading men’s road cycling races on the UCI World Tour. With more than 80 years of tradition, La Vuelta today is close to everyone’s hearts. We share the same values and passion. An exciting event for everyone, not only for pros but for all cyclists who train with passion and challenge themselves. For Santini the partnership with La Vuelta is more than just a race, it represents our continuing contribution for a new chapter in cycling history.

The Vuelta Espana may be the toughest Grand Tour of the 2018 season. Unforgiving team and individual time trials, explosive, high-altitude finishes, and dozens of other challenges face the riders. The Vuelta is a race that can break a champion or launch the career of an up-and-comer. But as tough as the racecourse is, the country of Spain provides a backdrop rich with beauty, culture, and history.

The opening time trial is held on the colorful streets of Malaga, birthplace of Pablo Picasso. The race then passes through stunning Almeria on the Mediterranean Sea, across the picturesque Basque Country, and winds its way over the Pyrenees in Catalonia. It culminates with a finale in Madrid, crossing the Puerta del Sol central square, location of the Kilometre Cero plaque, the point from which distances on all roads in Spain are measured.

The 2018 Vuelta inspired us to create cycling kits that celebrate both the toughness of the race and the beauty and history of Spain. We started by selecting the best-in-class fabrics to build body-hug, technical, race-ready garments. We then put the canvas of those kits in the hands of our design team, led by cycling's most thoughtful designer and storyteller, Fergus Niland. The result is a breathtaking collection of leader's jerseys and inspirational commemorative kits that reflect the race we all love so much and the people and places that serve as its backdrop.

The 2018 Vuelta opens with a short and tough prologue time trial in Malaga, the birthplace of the world's most influential artist. Pablo Picasso's iconic black-and-white stripedshirts were a common design in Brittany, where Picasso spent much of his later life. We adopted these 'Breton' stripes for our Malaga kit to honor Picasso and his hometown. The logotype used on the jersey is a reference to the many minarets of Malaga's mosques. The first four bars of the jersey logo, representing the first four stages of the race, are based on the purples and greens of the official city flag of Malaga.
