Our name may be new to you but our work isn’t. Our engineers and factory have created some of the world’s most sought-after road bikes, bikes that helped redefine what we expect from a carbon fibre road bike. We were there when the first reliable kilogram frames were produced and we were the first to break the 900g barrier and then the 800g barrier. We’ve produced bikes that have won many of the world’s great races, from Classics to Tour de France stages, even the overall for the Tour de France and the Giro.
Our engineers pioneered processes that are considered the state of the art for the carbon fibre bicycle. Our work has been emulated by nearly every factory and every bike brand working in carbon. There came a point when we realized that the only way we could produce bikes that exploited the full range of our creativity and expertise was to launch our own brand. We are now able to control every feature of the design—the geometry, the frame shape, the fibre choice and the layup. Because we own the factory, because we live locally, because we can step into the factory anytime we choose, we have the ability to move from design to prototype to production at a speed no major manufacturer can match. We are cyclists and every day we come to work with a passion to make the best bicycles we can.
We strive for excellence for the simple reason that an excellent bike is the one we want to ride.
