Pro race team Bardiani-CSF might have had a fairly quiet start to this season, but their bikes and kit are anything but quiet.
Stefano Pirazzi’s Cipollini RB800 frame boasts a black and green colourway that simply demands attention.

Similar Italian flair can be found all over the bike, from the carbon-laden mechanical Campagnolo Super Record groupset, to the Deda Superleggera bars and stem.
Deda’s snappily named WD45CCL wheelset keeps Pirazzi and the rest of the Bardiani-CSF riders rolling. Bardiani’s tyre sponsor is the not-widely-known Cheng Shin Tyres, which supplies the team with its clinchered, Conquistare 25mm width rubber.
Power2Max continues to grow, and has taken over power-meter duties for Bardiani-CSF from last year’s sponsor PowerTap, supplying Type S units to match the dominating team green livery.
Two of Pirazzi’s contact points are provided by Prologo – he uses the Naga Evo saddle with CPC grip material, and his carbon handlebars are wrapped with Prologo OneTouch tape.
We’re expecting Pirazzi – who’s known for his attacking style – to showcase what this bike is all about when the rolling circus that is the pro peloton heads to the Giro d’Italia.
