Introducing our Super Carbon Bikes: La Classica Ribelle!

We are excited to introduce our NEW fleet of road bikes for the 2023 season on all European continental tours. We call our bicicletta, La Classica Ribelle, a high-performance, fun-to-ride bicycle, custom-built to the specs needed for Ciclismo Classico guests.

La Classica Ribelle was born after a year of analysis of our guests’ needs, tour leader feedback, and the technical experience of the R&D team of Officine Mattioa modern and innovative bicycle company based at the foothill of the Alps in Cuneo, Piedmont.

Whatever kind of cyclist you are – you will love La Classica. If speed and performance are crucial, you’ll appreciate La Classica’s lightweight frame and high-end components. If all-day bicycling comfort is important, the relaxed geometry, low gearing, and comfy Selle Italia anatomic saddle will keep you happily pedaling all day long whether it’s across Italy or along Puglia’s tiny backroads.

Curious about cruising on La ClassicaJoin us on tour!  PLUS, if you like your ride, we are offering all of our guests the chance to bring La Classica home or to enjoy a special Ciclismo Classico discount on Officine Mattio’s entire line of super high-end performance bicycles.  

Additionally, our partnership with Officine Mattio (OM) will include participation in local Italian bike events,  factory tours, and much more. 

For Ciclismo Classico, the bicycle tour company that was born and bred in Tuscany, we are excited to remain loyal to our soulful Italian cycling roots and pedal for many years to come with our Pedal Passionate friends at Officine Mattio.

La Classica’s carbon frame is amazingly lightweight and tops ratings in both performance and comfort – a record for a disc brake frame! All-day speed, performance, and comfort.

Using the latest generation e-shifters, La Classica’s e-shifters won’t fatigue your wrists and forearms, offering smooth and precise shifting. You’ll never miss a gear or have rubbing again. Pedaling silence = peace of mind guaranteed. 
Braking is a breeze. La Classica’s disk brakes are easier to handle, quick yet modulating, perfect also for small hands, and requiring less strength even on longer descents.
La Classica’s wheels feature a super smooth SKF geared hub and straight spokes. Made in Italy exclusively for Ciclismo Classico to ensure comfort, weight, performance, and low profile. Wider 30 mm Vittoria tires provide a better grip on descents.
