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 his engineers, stylists, and skilled artisans, Cipollini has brought back the concept of creating a unique and revolutionary Italian design, superior quality, and old world craftsmanship that had long been lost due to so called made in Italy products that proliferate the market. Gone now are the false promises of performance and quality. Cipollini has set the benchmarks high with innovations and standards of production that many of these Italian makers claim, yet can’t deliver. Performance, prestige, and passion makes Cipollini the easy choice over all of the others!
