SANTO SUBITO – ‘The Immediate Saint’. An instant classic, indeed.

SANTO SUBITO is a wonderfully snappy roadster inspired by the geometry of a French frame by the former bicycle manufacturer Méral in the Loire valley. Together with our Italian frame builder we updated the overall concept and design, made the appearance a bit clearer and more decisive, while preserving its very sportive nature.

SANTO SUBITO is a wonderfully snappy roadster with superior handling qualities. Extremely suitable for everyday use and really street-smart.

Combining the comfort of a step-through frame with the stability of a diamond frame the bike appeals to both female and male riders.

The frame is handmade from the lightweight Zero Uno tube set by Dedacciai. To the fullest this bicycle follows our credo of combining sportive handling and versatility. We named it ‘Santo Subito’.

SANTO SUBITO we offer in five different gearing options – as singlespeed, with the Sturmey Archer Duomatic, with Shimano Nexus 3-speed / freewheel, with Shimano Alfine 8-speed or equipped with Schlumpf SpeedDrive.

Additionally SANTO SUBITO offers a number of possibilities for individual configuration. E.g. Gilles Berthoud stainless steel fenders, alloy chain guard, rear rack, kick stand, and/or dynamo powered lights.

For further information please ask your dealer or contact us directly. We’ll assist you gladly.
