The NIPPO Vini Fantini Faizanè team will keep riding on De Rosa bikes in 2019 and specifically on 4 models, deriving from 3 different bike frame, depending on the most congenial characteristics of each #OrangeBlue athlete. For 2019, a special design, with a white color designed to stand out in the group, combined with the #OrangeBlue jersey.
DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY.
“The color choice was made in honor of NIPPO Corporation, while the “scratch” given to the frame with the inserts Orange, Blue, and light blue, are in honor of the social colors of the team and the new third name” – this is explained by the CEO of Cusano Milanino’s brand, Cristiano De Rosa – “For the fifth consecutive season at the Professional level and for the seventh consecutive season in absolute terms our bikes will be the one of the Italian-Japanese team with NIPPO Vini Fantini Faizané. We have “dressed” them in white to celebrate this marriage. In fact, we wanted to dedicate a color to the team’s best Japanese partner, NIPPO Corporation, who has always been present on the team’s shirt on a white background. The OrangeBlue scratch reflects the colors of the team, with the blue that is a tribute to the other great historical partner of the team: Vini Fantini. The addition of the light blue was made in honor of an equally important new partner that guarantees continuity to the project, the brand Faizanè”. Cristiano explained also the technical innovation for the season 2019: “Beyond the colors, the two most important innovations are represented by the 12-speed Campagnolo Super Record gearbox and the introduction of the disc brake models on Protos frames and on the Pininfarina SK frames.”
