Scapin Cicli (Padova , Italy) was originally founded in 1957 by Umberto Scapin, a solid professional cyclist himself. The company immediately set itself an ambitious goal: to manufacture products featuring technical excellence and remarkable quality, where rider’s efficency and comfort are always the priority.
The challenge was met at the time by Umberto’s sons, and Stefano in particular earned the merit of bringing the trademark to fame outside Italy. Since that moment, design and technology have been an essential blend in Scapin products. In 1998, its bike Rudolf was one of the few worldwide to win the prestigious Compasso d’Oro, the most important award in Italian design.
Proudly presenting this masterpiece of handcrafted excellence from early/mid 1980s – Scapin Arione Aero made of very elegant ovalised Columbus SL tubes with all internal cables routings, amazing detailed lugs and beautiful cromovelato paintwork.
