Its a old city and is also the home to a few cycling companies. One of them is SMS. Otherwise know just as Santini. SMS is short fo Santini Maglificio Sprotivo. Santini clothing has been around since 1965 and was started by Pietro Rosino Santini.

We first discovered Crono shoes at Interbike and immediately liked what we saw. The Crono’s booth was in the Italian Pavilion and they had a prime corner lot at that show. Their road shoes were really hot and their MTB line was attractive as well. Once we found out who the distributor was we immediately set out to do a review and see if we could go over and visit the factory in Italy. We got a yes to both of those questions.
