An Italian legend.
Think about a Torpado bicycle on a street, two legs that push as much as they can, contracted muscles, the concentrated mind of a cyclist who is doing his best and who knows that he can make it: he trusts his bicycle and he knows he won’t be betrayed now at 100 meters away from the finish line...
This is the image fixed in the mind of anybody that during the Golden years of Italian Cycling has seen the best cyclists win with a Torpado bicycle. Postwar Years, period in which the champions join the Torpado Team and see their Victory dream come true.
Many champions of yesterday are an example for today racers who are living the same emotions on a Torpado bike that has been and still is a legend.
Torpado traces its roots all the way back to 1895 when it was founded by Torresini of Padua (hence, its name — Torpado). By the 1960s, Torpado is one of the main sponsors of professional peloton with a team carrying its name to the biggest races in Europe.
In 2001 Torpado was bought by Esperia Cicli with significant resources channeled to revive the brand and attract discerning, well-informed cyclists from around the world to its innovative products.
