The Bestianera—italian for black beast—is a high-tech hybrid bicycle that’s equally at home in the velodrome and on the road, making it the perfect choice for the sporty city slicker. It’s a simple task of just a few minutes to transform the beast, used in its racing form by the likes of Italian track champion Giairo ermeti, for the road—simply change the wheels and front fork. the kinetic energy recovery system stores electricity generated from braking to power a motor that can propel the bike from 0-30km/h in just three rotations of the pedals and take the hard slog out of hill climbing. With its carbon-fibre frame, an incredibly sexy design by architect romolo stanco, the bicycle weighs less than 10kg. Its high-tech alloys also reduce vibrations through the saddle and handlebars, so you’ll arrive at the office in perfect form for that 9am meeting.
