Mirko Meerwaldt Tekst Mirko Meerwaldt Gepubliceerd 12 May 2019

To celebrate that most grandissimo of all the Grand Tours – Il Giro – we once again picked a batch of excellent products, events and concepts for you to enjoy – all sharing a particular strong bond with Italia.

TELAI

The reinstatement of the historic Stelbel brand is a triumph for both classic cycling fans and adorers of modern steel roadbikes. TIG-welded in Bergamo, just like old Stelio Beletti used to do back in the 70s, these machines offer superb riding qualities and an unmatched timeless aesthetic.

Attitude Supply bags have an air of almost un-Italian robustness about them. Highly resilient and remarkably functional, these bags are still crafted in Milan by one of Italy’s oldest military suppliers. A reliable option for outdoor trips or carrying large loads around town, worthy of your consideration.

VELOCE

DeMarchi has been closely involved with Italian professional racing since 1948, and has produced custom jerseys for a whole band of corridori. Magni, Coppi, Moser and Argentin all sported DeMarchi apparel. The Veloce is a crisp, smart piece of summer performance kit with an enduring look.

Now that's a trail to ride. Lucca, Firenza, Siena... the Tuscany Trail is an unsupported bikepacking event, where having fun and enjoying the scenery and culture is paramount. And with a distance of 530 km and 9000 vertical metres there's plenty to discover in this quintessential Italian landscape.

Granted, these might not be to everyone's taste, but these have tons of personality and plenty of comfort to boot. Craftsman Luigino Verducci started out by making his daughter some skating shoes, and then took it to cycling from there. A meticulous work of dedication with singular style.

What began with the discovery of deadstock mesh cycling gloves in a Canadian storefront is now Veeka. More than mere shadows of Europe’s glorious cycling past, these gloves are imbued with modern day comfort tech that Gino and Fausto themselves would not have frowned upon.

STRATOS

STRATOS

Alba Optics will not make you faster. They will improve your vision though. And your looks, probably. Evoking the feeling of those golden days of enormous, face-covering cycling glasses, the Stratos comes with heaps of Italian style and panache thrown in the mix for good measure.

SALUTE

SALUTE

A proper sip of Italy, said to have once been the elixer of choice for Italian kings. Now reborn in Torino, Rosalio is made from Calabrian bergamot, which tastes like lemon on steroids. Enjoy with some quality olives and the Giro on the tube. Salute.

There was no way we could do this and exclude the food. So to indulge you all here we some quite snazzy-looking Italian cookware. There's all kinds of nifty nanotech going on with these ABCT pans, but so long as the sauce doesn't stick we're happy. And just look at these, they're gorgeous!

As with the food, we couldn't skip on the coffee thing neither. This Italian design with more than a dash of sleek Danish minimalism transforms the grinding of your coffee beans into a most pleasing daily ritual, all done by hand of course.

MULO

Cicli Faggin is a family dynasty of the Italian framebuilding industry, and the Mule — built in Padua with Columbus Life tubing — is a fun-loving addition to their lineage. Whilst drawing from their rich history, this Faggin is above all a reiteration of the past for a new generation of cyclists.
