About Passoni:

Passoni is a niche luxury specialist Italian bicycle manufacturer. Formed over 30 years ago by Luciano Passoni, a man with a dream to build the best, most

luxurious and exclusive bikes in the world. He wanted to combine his passion of cycling with a never ending pursuit of excellence in both 

technology and design. An obsessive attention to detail and commitment to building the finest racing bikes in the 

world run deep in the culture of Passoni. Their frame builders have decade of experience crafting custom frames for bike lovers in all four corners of the world, and from all walks of 

life. From tradesmen to businessmen; enthusiasts to pro-racers. But whatever their background and wherever their location, all of their customers share an 

unbridled love of bikes with exacting standards of quality. That's why at Passoni only the very best alloys are used; frames are welded in a vacuum chamber using a closely guarded 

mixture of gas perfected over the last 30 years; and spend 30 hours polishing each frame before it leaves their state of the art, Milan based atelier.


The bike we built for the Rapha Continental Project was for Allan Iacuone - ex pro rider (http://cyclingtips.com.au/2010/11/where-are-they-now-allan-iacuone/)  who sent us this comment on a mail a 

month or so after having used the bike:

"I have just completed my first ride on her, 98km. This bike is a WEAPON...Light,  super stiff but soaks 

up the road like it has suspension, it is balanced perfectly, the front end is so agile I feel like I am going

through corners and turns on rails, so precise.  I wish I had a bike like this when I was riding as a pro.

This bike forces you to go fast, it is beautiful and unbelievable in its ride quality, I have never ridden a 

bike like this one and I will never get sick of riding this. You must hear this from all your customers  'it is 

awesome'!!"
