Even if you have never heard of Passoni frames, just one look at them will give you a pretty good idea about how much effort this young Italian brand has invested in making top quality titanium and alloy road frames. Founded over 30 years ago outside of Milan by Luciano Passoni, Passoni bikes are unabashedly top drawer, handcrafted frames intended to offer the type of rigid ride that wins mass sprints but with the buttery smoothness that makes you want every ride to be a century.
That might be a claim that lots of bike manufacturers might try to make, with varying degrees of accuracy, but Passoni really are passionate about making the best bikes they can using methods and materials that suit the end function of the bike, not necessarily modern fads and expectations. Using frame builders with tons of experience, and only the best alloys specially treated and welded, the Passoni frames are lavished with a loving, detailed-oriented attention that will be felt in the ride quality from the first pedal stroke. They have perfected their steel options to make them mix the classic and modern perfectly, while the titanium options will make you wonder why more pros don’t opt for the material. Comfortable, yes, but not the wiggle-fests one might be prejudiced enough to expect.
And then Passoni pushes the boundaries of what makes a great carbon frame with the Nero XL. Or go for a cheeky combo of carbon and ti with the Fidia, which is available both in an off-the-rack option and a made to measure.
Whether you are looking to buy yourself a handcrafted, customized Italian gem, or want to find that perfect balance between comfort and performance, then the Passoni road bike selection available at Wrench Science will give you the full selection you will need to build up a unique, high performance racing bike.
