LOOK SHARP.

 

Italy has given much to world cycling (née the world). Cologne (aftershave to the ignorant), Fausto Coppi, the Espresso machine, talking with your hands, Campagnolo, the Pirelli calendar and our all-new Euro Collection. Even the jacuzzi. And now, an international fixed gear racing team clad in Black Sheep – Sartoria Ciclistica.

 

If you got your mouth around that, feel free to continue. Still there? Great. Because we are incredibly proud to have broken borders to bring you the next chapter of our 'Made in Italy' story. Birthed on the shores of Lake Como, this three-man, one-woman team is a partnership with Como's best and first bike cafe, Sartoria Ciclistica, and a number of other exciting supporting partners. Namely, Giant Bicycles ItaliaMitchumm IndustrieswefouragencyAlba Opticsand Chimpanzee Nutrition, who, with this collaboration, are all contributing to the progression, professionalism and popularity of the sport we love.

PRIDE AND PERSONALITY.

In the first of a number of exciting team announcements coming this month, we are proud to be a part of this unique international fixed gear racing team, our first overseas instalment, who will race globally and honour the free spirit within every bike rider. Like all of the passionate people we bring into our family, the desire with this team is to tell the meaningful stories that exist in the pursuit of excellence and those that happen beyond the finish line. In everything Sartoria Ciclistica | Black Sheep does, we aim to celebrate, support and share the distinct culture associated with fixed gear cycling – a perfect arena in which we can showcase our distinct personality and continue pushing the boundaries of product development. Watch this space.

A SENSE OF FREEDOM.

The Sartoria Ciclistica | Black Sheep team symbolises the sense of freedom and discovery we all feel when riding our bikes. A sentiment embodied when riding without brakes or gears. Nothing peripheral. Complete liberation. Just (wo)man and machine. Fixed gear racing is a melting pot cultural movement of people from all over the world who come together to share a unique passion. A passion for cycling. A devotion towards a higher cause – good times, good rides and good vibes.

 

At the forefront of this movement will be the team's founding members Alessandro Tino, Andrea Olivieri, Michele Benatti, Swedish import Therese Sundstrom and team manager Andrea Faccaro, with Black Sheep right behind them in every skid, scrape and success.

THE SLOW (OR FAST) REVEAL.

2018 has been a year where we have really tried to push the boundaries of our product development. The launch of our new Merino Jersey and The Perfect Pad are just the start, with so much more in the pipeline. Our new Prototype LS TT Suit gives you a little sneak peak of what is ahead. Exclusive, for the moment, to our new fixed gear racing team, Sartoria Ciclistica | Black Sheep, the Prototype LS TT Suit features strategically placed vortex generators in regions of high wind velocity. If we tell you much more we’ll probably have to kill you, or offer you a job. Made in Italy, raced by our Italian stallions. We are excited to reveal the full story soon.
