The leather will bond to your hand after a few rides and become unique to the wearer. Once matched they will be your new favourite thing. The palm is lightly padded by adding an extra layer of walnut brown leather. The Campionissimo’s rear leather is gently perforated with large knuckle holes to assist with ventilation. The naturally dyed cream hide is Goatskin, often referred to as nature’s strongest leather. It has very high tensile-strength and abrasion-resistant properties, but has excellent softness, supple motion and is lightweight.
A forceful teacher in 1927 encouraged an 8 year old Angelo Fausto Coppi to write “I ought to be at school, not riding my bicycle” Thankfully he didn’t listen. Il Campionissimo. Fausto excelled in both climbing and time trialing. He won the Giro d’Italia five times and Le Tour de France twice. But his total style was displayed sprinting to the World Championship victory in 1953.
