Prestigio. Prestige.

Prestigio, headquartered in the Republic of San Marino, is an emerging brand that recently launched frames designed in collaboration with the Turin design company Giugiaro Design.

"This partnership," said Giancarlo Di Marco of Prestigio, "is a cornerstone of our young company's history, because it marks the pinnacle of our production, and aims at a future more robust and ambitious. For us it is an honor to have with us one of the best designers in the world."

Fabrizio Giugiaro said, "Giugiaro Design has always been synonymous with technology, style and innovation for companies. The partnership with Prestigio includes all our features and rewards the high level of know-how of both companies. The new EVO GE1 model is at the peak of design. This collaboration allows us to return to cycling and we hope it is just the beginning of a profitable business."

Six time Giro d’Italia and seven time Tour de France professional rider Fabio Sacchi works with Prestigio giving input into the designs and is available via email to answer questions that consumers may have about any of the models offered.
