In order to maximize profits, production was taken overseas by the well-known makers of carbon frames. Plain and simple. Now don’t get us wrong, there is nothing wrong with mass produced frames, but that is not Cipollini. We handcraft about 2000 frames a year – one frame at a time.
The experts said monocoque frames couldn’t be done in Italy, but Cipollini has proved them wrong. With engineers, stylists, and skilled artisans, Cipollini has brought back the concept of creating a unique and revolutionary design. Our patented Atomlink® system, present in our models Nuke and Bond, attaches the chainstays to the monocoque front triangle by bonding them completely around the bottom bracket area providing maximum drivetrain stiffness. Cipollini has set the benchmarks high with innovations and standards of production that many of these Italian makers claim, yet can’t deliver.
Every Cipollini frame comes with a unique coded Warranty Card and a unique coded RFID embedded in the frame. They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but not for Cipollini! This is one way to assure that this is a real Cipollini, and not a knock off.
Performance, prestige, and passion makes Cipollini the easy choice over all others!
