FIDIA DISCO RTR

A Carbon frame with a titanium heart.

ATELIER PASSONI

Founded in 1989 by Luciano Passoni, our mission is to produce the most beautiful, timeless, lightweight and high performance bikes possible. We are passionate about what we do and obsess over every detail. 
Cycles, the little corner of Geelong producing some of the world’s best bespoke bicycles.

FIDIA DISCO RTR

The unique construction of the Fidia Disco weaves together cycling's two most coveted materials for an incomparable ride. Unlike any other bicycle, our made-to-measure service can further tailor this most uncommon racing bicycle to your desires.

Material: Carbon

Frame Weight: 1.1kg

FIDIA DISCO RTR SPECS

  • Carbon fibre offers greater rigidity and lighter weight than any alternative. At the same time, it requires the greatest care and attention in design and manufacturing. Complementing Passoni’s extensive history in bespoke frame manufacture, the Fidia uses advanced carbon construction to deliver the next tier of performance and speed. Revised to accommodate the latest disc brake standards, the new Fidia represents Passoni’s ceaseless pursuit of performance and control.

  • The Fidia is conceived around an economy of material in which each carbon strand serves a purpose. Created from Italian-made carbon-titanium tubing, the Fidia’s frame is mitred and wrapped in our atelier in Milan before being cured in an on-site autoclave. Built with the same attention and skill as our titanium frames, the carbon-titanium Fidia promises a similar lifetime of cycling enjoyment.

  • While prioritising lightweight performance and speed, the Fidia’s tube shapes are formed to maximise the riding experience. This is notable in areas including the tapered top tube, which increases rigidity towards the front of the bike while preserving the flex necessary for a fluid ride. Passoni’s titanium heritage is not forgotten on the Carbo-Titanium Fidia. Instead, we retain it with subtle touches such as the dropouts, headtube badge, and etched titanium top tube plate.

NOVA GRAVEL

“The Nova Gravel provides riders with a bicycle created using the care and skill for which Passoni has become famous. Suited to a wide variety of road-going applications, its lightweight steel construction provides supreme riding enjoyment”

Material: Steel

Frame Weight: 2.1kg

NOVA GRAVEL SPECS

  • Ensuring the frame resists any twisting forces applied to it, this is paired to a 31.7mm bi-oval seat tube and matching diameter top tube. Steered from the front via a tapered headtube, this includes unique CNC machined stainless steel bearing cups that support 1”⅛ upper and 1”½ lower bearings. The rear triangle uses S-bend Columbus Spirit chainstays, to increase tyre clearance to a comfortable 38mm, while preserving the carefully tuned geometry of Passoni’s road-based Nova. Resulting in a bike with the purposeful handling and quick response needed to enliven any ride, its smaller details are also given an uncommon degree of attention.

  • Indelibly matching the Nova Gravel to its owner, both frame and fork can be custom painted in any of the colours in the Passoni Palette. Extending to componentry including the stem and handlebars, the result is a ready to ride bicycle that’s still uniquely tailored to the desires of its creator.

  • Mixing stiffness and comfort, we use super strong Columbus Spirit steel to construct the Nova Gravel’s inimitable frame. Welded with TIG and silver-brass fill brazing, its design exemplifies many of the features pioneered by our Milanese frame builders. Aimed at those wanting to experience the ride of the finest steel tubing as assembled by Passoni’s master craftspeople, each bike benefits from their decades of accumulated skill. Emphasising both speed and versatility, with subtle adaptations to wider tyre clearance and stable off-road geometry, the result is a versatile racer at ease when the tarmac ends and the trail begins.

PRIMA DISCO

The Prima’s 56mm conical headtube is created from three Grade 5 titanium pieces and welded together, offering the greatest level of handling performance, alongside high accuracy in terms of bearing cup tolerances. Housing 1”½ lower and 1”⅛ upper stainless steel bearing cups, the tapered headtube is a centrepiece in the elegant ride character of the bike.

Material: Titanium

Frame Weight: 1.4kg

PRIMA DISCO SPECS

  • Our Prima frame is painstakingly finished in our atelier in Milan. First, the frame is adorned with Passoni graphics through an anodisation process, after which we apply glass bead blasting treatment to the welded joints and tubes.

  • The Prima uses triple-butted a 42.4mm bi-ovalised downtube, creating a rigid and lightweight platform for riding efforts. That’s complemented by oval titanium chainstays, which preserve the transfer of power horizontally but allow some degree of vertical flex to improve comfort.

  • Our Prima frame can be built to accommodate disc or rim brakes alongside mechanical or electronic groupsets, and our Ready-to-Ride Prima frames are available now. You can choose from six sizes customise the bike
