Behind the design
Designed and made in Italy by Santini, the 2020 Jersey is packed with design and technical features to make your ride a special one.
This year, the official UCI partner drew inspiration from three concepts, each integral to the makeup of the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race – SKY, OCEAN, ROAD.
Every entrant in the 115km, 65km and 35km gets an exclusive Jersey, making for an unforgettable experience rolling out of Geelong with the wave of fellow riders.
Here are some of the standout features of this high-performance piece to keep you comfortable on Saturday 2 February – and every ride thereafter!
The classic cut Blend jersey has raglan sleeves and Bodyfit fabric on the collar, sleeves and cuffs with raw cut. The all-jersey long zip helps with temperature control and a triple rear pocket makes it easy to carry everything you need on the ride.
Technical characteristic of the Jersey give you the best of both comfort and performance. Breathable mesh is used on the sides and energy fabric on the front, back and pockets. While the body hem is finished using internal elastic with silicone gripper. Our zipper features a cam lock zip closure. This technology protects you from pulling down your zipper inadvertently. When the pull is down it locks the zipper in place, to open the zipper simply raise the pull and unzip (or zip).
Colours in the arm bands pay tribute to the 2019 elite race winners – superstar Elia Viviani, who wore the Italian jersey as their reigning national champion and the yellow signifies the Astana Women’s Team of Arlenis Sierra, winner of the Deakin University Elite Women’s Road Race.
Santini has selected what will be the top colours for cycling apparel in Europe across the 2020 season. You’ll be part of launching these colours in the Swisse People’s Ride before they formally reach our shores.
Your jersey displays our partner logos – Santini, Visit Victoria, Swisse Wellness and Swisse Ride2Work Scheme, and the Transport Accident Commission.
If you want to pair your Jersey with the full kit, our shop is stocked with the official 2020 apparel, including the men’s and women’s bibs, custom socks and event cap. All designed and made by Santini.
