Italian Racing Bicycles

The People, The Products, The Passion


Seasoned cyclists know that an Italian bicycle is more intimately yours, a more personal possession than a bicycle of other origin. Italian bicycles are built to race with passion, and to win. Italian Racing Bicycles traces the rich history of 40 landmark brands intimately connected with racing. Not surprisingly, the brands have deep roots, some tracing their lineage back more than 100 years to the early days of the velocipede. They also share a hunger for advanced technology, pushing engineering to new heights with exotic metal alloys, elaborate weaves of expensive carbon fibre, and aerodynamic studies that help their bikes and riders cheat the wind for greater speed. Beyond these commonalities though, the stories diverge.
