Cipollini Bikes

Likely known as the most flamboyant pro cyclist of all time, Mario Cipollini claimed near 200 professional wins. The question that founded the Cipollini brand? What would Mario have ridden during his professional career had he chosen the bikes himself? Hence the range of Cipollini are crafted in Italy as pure stiff, responsive and very fast high-end performance road bikes. These traits make the frames perfect for riders with sprinting sensibility. While the combined qualities epitomise the advancements of cycling technology, today Cipollini goes a step further with the 2021 release of a climbing model - the Dolomia.

The Cipollini range is impeccably engineered, beautifully constructed and aesthetically flawless. Traits typical of Italian design. Cipollini bikes have been on the market since the launch in 2010 and, like many premium brands, they’re hard to come by.

In essence the renowned style, brashness, and flamboyance of Mario reflect the very same qualities distinguishing the road bikes he creates.
