Titici Relli, Gravel has a new shape

The Italian brand unveils its new gravel bike with the revolutionary AAT system (Arch Absorber Technology). The special arch shape of the seat tube further reduces vibrations, offering the highest combination of performance and comfort ever achieved

A racing soul in a revolutionary body shape. TITICI presents RELLI, the new full-carbon gravel bike designed to push the boundaries of offroad cycling performance. The pursuit of maximum speed, stability, comfort and riding fun has led to a radical reinterpretation of the gravel frame with the development of the innovative AAT (Arch Absorber Technology) system. The arched shape of the seat tube helps to reduce vibrations without the need for complex shock absorbers and without compromising the high stiffness of the frame, which translates into extraordinary performance.

RELLI is the natural evolution of the F-GR02 model of the Italian brand and joins the ALL-IN aluminium model in the gravel range, completing TITICI’s offer for gravel enthusiasts of all kinds: from demanding racing to adventurous bikepacking.

ARCH ABSORBER TECHNOLOGY – REDUCING VIBRATIONS, INCREASING PERFORMANCE

In 2017 TITICI was the first brand in the world to launch the PAT (Plate Absorber Technology) system, the translation to the most sophisticated engineering level of a simple intuition: the shape of the tubes and the deformation of the materials have significant influence on the comfort perceived by the rider. The flat and ultra-thin shape (only 8 millimetres) of the top tube featuring PAT technology makes it possible to absorb up to 19% more vibrations while maintaining torsional stiffness.

True to the same principle, TITICI engineers have continued development and designed the new AAT system (Arch Absorber Technology) which introduces a second vibration reduction element into the RELLI frame. The seat tube has been redesigned with a special arch shape that has the function of dampening shock impulses between the two nodes of the bottom bracket and the saddle. In this way, vibrations are not transmitted directly and immediately from the ground to the cyclist’s body.

The result is an even greater perception of comfort with an overall benefit in terms of performance. On uneven terrain, typical of gravel races, the body is less fatigued: the cyclist can push to the maximum for longer.

STABLE AND RESPONSIVE

Compared to the F-GR02, the RELLI’s rear end has also been completely redesigned. Lowered seat stays (the junction with the seat tube is 30 millimetres lower than the top tube) provide greater stability on dirt roads and high responsiveness. The rear triangle and the fork are designed to accommodate wide tyres, up to 700x42c, without annoying mud accumulation.

INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

RELLI’s front end was developed from VENTO, the road frame designed to combine aerodynamics and lightness. The oversized head tube (cross-section measures 1 1/2″ instead of the traditional 1 1/8″) provides stability and steering precision, even on the most demanding sections, and allows internal cable routing for a clean and aerodynamic design.

MADE TO MEASURE IN ITALY

The RELLI frame is made of ultra-high modulus carbon fibers using PBW (Progressive Bandage Workmaship) wrapping technique with slow resins. This process makes it possible to create frames that are perfect to the millimetre, starting from the cyclist’s anthropometric measurements and biomechanical analysis. Each RELLI bike is unique, totally customised in its geometry and colors: the ideal partner for the cyclist and at the same time the expression of his character, according to the TITICI philosophy of exclusivity. The entire production process is carried out in Italy, from design and engineering to the creation of the frames and the assembly of the final product.

Available soon, online and at the TITICI retailers.


Titici presents All-in And

Titici presents All-in And: the new gravel frame featuring ultra-resistant anodizing treatment and silver ions.

The Italian brand will unveil at Cyclingworld Düsseldorf (Germany, 18-20 March) the AND version of its ALL-IN aluminium frame, featuring special anodizing treatment: extraordinarily resistant to scratches, abrasion and wear.

Beautiful things last forever. TITICI presents the AND version of its ALL-IN frame, which features an innovative anodizing treatment with silver ions. Thanks to this patented technology, the frame becomes extraordinarily resistant to scratches and abrasion, guaranteeing almost total resistance to oxidation even in a marine environment.

The ALL-IN frame is the result of an exclusive collaboration with the Italian company DEDACCIAI, world leader in aluminium tubing. Characterised by hand-welding and integrated cable routing, this frame stands out for reliability and high stability. The new AND version enhances the strength properties that make ALL-IN perfect for long adventures on dirt tracks and unpaved roads.

HOW IT WORKS

Thanks to a special treatment, the aluminium frame undergoes a profound surface transformation using the unique combination of anodic oxide and the noble metal Silver. As a result, a brand new material is created.

The electrolytic process of anodizing causes an accelerated growth of the protective oxide layer on the aluminium. This treatment generates a new skin for the metal, characterised by very strong adhesion to the base. Silver ions seal the microporosity of the oxide, giving the surface of the frame unique properties.

THE ADVANTAGES

Compared to conventional painting, the AND frame has a lower weight, very high corrosion resistance and high surface hardness. This translates into extraordinary resistance to scratches, abrasion and wear.

The colouring penetrates deeply and fixes itself in the oxide layer, guaranteeing almost infinite durability. Unlike traditional painting, no parts of the paint will detach as a result of shocks or vibrations thanks to the non-removable characteristics of the anodic oxide layer.

Maintenance is easier as dirt cannot stick to the surface. Cleaning the frame after a muddy or dusty ride is quick and easy.

WORLD PREMIERE AT CYCLINGWORLD DÜSSELDORF FROM 18 TO 20 MARCH

The ALL-IN frame in the AND version will be presented in absolute preview at Cyclingworld Europe (inside the stand of the TITICI dealer La Bici), the prestigious show for finest bike culture to be held from March 18 to 20 in Düsseldorf (Germany). This treatment can be ordered immediately for ALL-IN frames in Apex, Grx and Rival Axs versions.


Happy birthday Titici! 60 years of Made in Italy innovation

December 22nd 2021: happy birthday Titici! 60 years of Made in Italy innovation

On December 22, 1961 TITICI was symbolically born. To celebrate 60 years of activity, we went back to the origins and we retraced the history of the glorious Italian brand together with the founder Alberto Pedrazzani.

On December 22, 1961 an all-Italian adventure began. A story of craftsmanship and innovation, of courage, passion and obstinacy. On that day, Alberto Pedrazzani puts down the welder and looks at his first frame: a tricycle for kids. He could not have known it yet, but just a few hours before Christmas, TITICI was being born.

The beginnings 

The beginnings 
 

In Italy these were the years of the economic boom after the Second World War. Alberto Pedrazzani, born in 1937, works as an apprentice in a mechanical workshop in Castelnuovo d’Asola, in the province of Mantua. “A brand in Milan was looking for someone to weld the handlebars of their tricycles,” recalls the founder of TITICI. “When I heard about it, I looked for the brand at the Milan trade fair and made a deal with them. From handlebars, we moved on to full frames. I created my first tricycles and the first children’s bicycles.“.

Passionate about metalworking and specialized in braze welding, Pedrazzani has an open, curious and eclectic mind that leads him to anticipate the times by always looking for new solutions. It is therefore inevitable that the drive towards the future, the will to propose innovative and revolutionary products, become “character traits” also of the new TITICI creature.

I got my license as a film operator, I attended specialization courses on metals and aerotechnical courses to understand propellers and electric motors. I attended international trade shows in search of the latest innovations. In 1964, I discovered electric welding and immediately introduced it to my company to increase the quality and strength of frames. I studied the models of other brands, not to copy them, but to develop better and unique frames to launch on the market. The goal was to win the competition, especially from Asian countries, through high quality and constant innovation. The motivation was often also practical: to guarantee me a way to support my five children“.

It was also thanks to the support of the entire family that the company grew and business multiplied. In the 1980s, robotized welding increased productivity; in the early 1990s, the company, renamed Tecno Telai Ciclo (“In 1985, we put this name on the packaging of our tyre puncture repair kit. In 1995 it was shortened to TITICI” recalls Pedrazzani), reaches the production of one million frames per year, establishing itself among the largest European bike frame manufacturers. The dizzying growth is fueled by the strong demand for BMX bikes and the new mountain bikes, a sector in which TITICI is an undisputed excellence.

The model I am most proud of, however, is the Fuego,” Pedrazzani explains. “It is a model patented in the early 1980s with a leaf spring suspension system that was absolutely innovative for the time. To make it, I was inspired by the suspension of farm wagons. The idea behind it is that greater driving comfort can be achieved by exploiting the deformation of materials. A concept that has been deepened in recent years by my son Matteo leading to the creation of the PAT system, the flat and ultra-thin top tube that has become the signature of every TITICI frame“.

It is Matteo Pedrazzani himself, together with his brothers, who takes TITICI in the years 2000 into a new dimension: from the large serial production of bike frames to the handcrafted production of carbon frames, strictly tailored to the customer. Without forgetting the teachings of his father Alberto, inspired by his passion for the product and his desire to experiment, Matteo transforms the store of Castelnuovo d’Asola into an exclusive bicycle atelier. In 2007, TITICI launches for the first time in Italy the historic FieltyNine, the first 29″ MTB, setting a new trend. Since 2017, the brand is part of the Trerè Innovation group, a solid and important company from Mantua that contributes to the expansion of TITICI worldwide and gives continuity to the innovation process.

I see what the TITICI brand has become and I am very proud,” concludes Alberto Pedrazzani. “Thanks to Trerè Innovation, a Made in Italy product, handcrafted and innovative, can become known all over the world, gaining consensus and admiration.” In 60 years the frames have changed, but the values have always remained the same. Best wishes TITICI!

The A-GR01 on the worlds tallest volcano

On the Ojos del Salado, you can touch the sky with your hands, after feasting your eyes on the marvels of untainted nature: salt flats, lagunas, flamingos. And it was here, on the world’s tallest active volcano (6,891m), on the border between Chile and Argentina, that Mirco Robaldo undertook his latest adventure on the TITICI A-GR01.

Mirco, 48, is the Travel&Mountain specialist, part of the management at Editoriale Domus Advertising, the publisher that’s also behind magazines such as Meridiani, Meridiani Montagne, Meridiani Cammini and the website montagna.tv. A true fanatic of mountain sports and cyclotourism, he chose our aluminium gravel bike to take on 360km across the Atacama desert, setting off from Caldera, a city on the Chilean Pacific coast to reach the small unmanned Murray refuge (4,550m above sea level). From there, he set off on foot to reach the volcano’s spectacular summit. His adventure began on 21 December and, accompanied by a couple of friends, he reached the summit of the Ojos del Salado on 2 January.

Exhausting?
“It was a challenging journey, but not awful. The torrid heat of the Atacama desert, one of the world’s driest, caught us off guard and forced us to cycle for an extra day, and to reprogramme our travelling time. The steep inclines put us to the test, too. On the bike, we totalled 5600m of elevation gain.”

Exhausting?

Talk us through your itinerary.
“We left from Caldera, on the shores of the Pacific Ocean, and after five days we arrived at the first base camp at Laguna Verde, 4,300m above sea level. We stayed here to acclimatise for three days before getting back on the bikes and heading to the Atacama Camp 5,240m above sea level. However, the route was impassable this year due to excess sand. That’s why we left the bikes at the Murray refuge and continued on foot. Unfortunately, Marco and Grazia – my two adventure companions – were unable to reach the summit and stopped at 6,500m of altitude.”

Talk us through your itinerary.

How did you find the TITICI A-GR01?
“This was my first trip riding the TITICI A-GR01. I really liked it. I appreciated the versatility of its set-up. I reduced the stem length so I could sit more upright, and chose 47mm tyres and suspension forks to increase my comfort and avoid putting strain on the joints on the gravel sections. I also found the A-GR01 extremely easy to take apart and reassemble, a process that’s vital for transporting a bike by plane but that can often be long and complicated.”


Luca Di Maggio

“You see that fine, elegant top tube – totally flat – and immediately realise you have in your hands the perfect surface for creating art.” Luca Di Maggio, a.k.a. Mr. Di Maggio, is a street artist in Milan and the face of the creative urban culture blossoming in cities around the world. His acrylic characters can be seen along the streets of Tel Aviv, among Brooklyn’s rooftops, on Milan’s crumbling walls, and on shutters and billboards.

Bringing them to life on a Flexy Gravel’s carbon frame was the beginning of a friendship that has drawn us into the world of metropolitan art. The custom frame became his canvas. With markers and spray paint, Mr.  Di Maggio has transformed a Titici bike into something even more unique: a moving work of art. The artist himself spends hours pedalling down streets around the world on his masterpiece.

How would you define your art?
“My creations are diaries, representations of a life that falls somewhere between dreams and reality. They’re a form of therapy that I perform on myself. My father was a judge, I studied law but then realised it wasn’t for me. I worked as a graphic designer, but felt the draw of physical shapes. Painting vast walls is an essential physical outlet for me.”

How would you define your art?

Just like cycling, which is a recurring theme in your work.
“Cycling is like painting: a relaxing way to blow off steam. Cycling and cyclists are a source of continuous inspiration, because each trip is a metaphor for life itself: you encounter difficult roads and endless climbs, but when you reach the top, the view is incredible. Cycling teaches us that all our efforts will be rewarded.”

Just like cycling, which is a recurring theme in your work.

Where did this “feeling” for Titici come from?
“I experienced immediate empathy with the brand and the people who work there. I’m an avid supporter of Made in Italy and Titici is one of the strongest examples of it in cycling. I have never had a carbon bike. The amazing shapes of the Flexy Gravel caught my attention right away. When I saw it I thought: it’s the perfect canvas.”
