Made without compromise. The Titanio is a racing bike that shows why titanium remains unmatched in performance. By applying traditional caliper brakes to a hypermodern frame, its low weight and handling are simply astounding.
"With the Titanio we wanted to marry performance with tradition, combining wide aggressive tubing with elegant classic welds and finish"
Titanium is in Passoni’s blood, and the Passoni Titanio is our showcase of what titanium is capable of. Welded in a pressurised chamber, using Passoni’s closely guarded mixture of gases, the Titanio is built entirely from triple-butted Grade 5 (6Al/4V) and Grade 9 (3Al/2.5V) tubing. Every component is made at our atelier in Italy, to create a frame that embodies the stunning traditional aesthetics of titanium coupled with the material’s cutting edge performance qualities. A compact, sloping geometry combined with oversized titanium tubing makes this a perfect partner for riders who long for a mature and elegant ride quality, laced with a spirit of aggression and speed.
The Titanio uses a 48mm bi-ovalised downtube, where the tube has a horizontal oval cross-section at the bottom-bracket, which curves into a vertical oval cross-section at the headtube. That maximises the contact area and tube diameter at both junctions, increasing rigidity while preserving low weight and ride quality.
A passion for titanium is in the DNA of Passoni, as expressed through the attention given to even minor components. From our custom-etched titanium seatpost clamp and brake bridge to our CNC-machined Grade 5 engraved bottom bracket shell, no detail is too small.
Using high-strength Grade 5 titanium in a 56mm conical headtube, housing 1”½ lower and 1”⅛ upper stainless steel bearing cups, the Titanio boasts rigid and precise handling while maintaining the classic aesthetics of our brand. On top of industry-leading welding and manufacturing standards, our Titanio frames are sandblasted with the iconic Passoni logo, and spend 30 hours being finished and polished. Our Titanio frame can be built to accommodate disc or rim brakes alongside mechanical or electronic groupsets. We can build to any custom geometry requirements, and tune our selection of tubing to match your riding.
