2017 Cipollini BOND
“The name’s BOND... CIPOLLINI BOND…”
In his pursuit for perfection, Mario Cipollini created a bicycle unlike any other. Its unique, one-of-a-kind design, innovative construction system, and Italian craftsmanship makes the Cipollini BOND one of the most comfortable yet aggressive, rigid, and precise bicycles on the market. At first glance, the Bond looks just like any other one of Mario Cipollini’s masterpieces, which isn’t a bad thing in itself. However, if you take the time to notice all the fine craftsmanship, it really is something else, unlike any other model we have seen before.
Bringing in new ideas and innovations to the table, this model paves the same road it races down. Cipollini BOND's left and right chain stays are constructed as individual pieces while the seatstay is one piece, which are then bonded to the front one-piece monocoque triangle. This gives the bike a new look and feel.
The exciting Atomlink feature includes the half shell of the bottom bracket and BB386 EVO, with a direct drive to the rear wheel, thus minimizing wasted energy. They call this brilliant redesign extreme power transfer, an original patent for Cipollini. The ingenious construction is still 100% made in Italy, handcrafted just like the rest of the Cipollini line.
You can't judge it simply by it's looks, though if you did it’d probably earn a pretty high score with that sleek design. There’s something about the BOND that just draws you in, compelling you to get acquainted with it and get to know it for all the amazing features and designs it has to offer. That's when you discover it's a frame with brilliant connections. So simple, but at the same time, so complex. As secretive with its power as agent 007, the new model will surprise you more than ever before.
