about

I started superleggero out of the most basic reason: necessity!
Living and riding in very cold towns, like Bolzano in the Dolomiti and in Zürich in the Swiss Alps, it was a basic necessity for me to wear something very warm, breathable, high performing and at the same time, something so chic, elegant and minimal to be worn on the way to the office, grocery store or a special dinner date.

This was the reason I started superleggero

our superleggero logo is deeply rooted in art and fashion, in close liaison with heritage sportswear and iconic cycling design. ranging from cashmere and Australian Merino blends to luxury fibres like silk, from its iconic beanie zero to the super desirable silk foulards leggera, the brand upholds the ideal of elegance, freedom and lightness, combining meticulous craftsmanship, innovation, attention to detail and centuries old expertise. every superleggero product is a work of art.

wool and cashmere

We were the first to introduce the term «snood» in the cycling world. Designed as a modern combination between a neck warmer and a beanie, the superleggero snood is an evolution of the classic «berretta». And we were the first to use the properties and qualities of the cashmere in a sportswear accessory, a luxury mix of Australian extra-fine Merino wool and cashmere made in Italy, minimal design and superleggero iconic patterns.

The idea was to create something new, unique, radically different, both for man and woman, minimal and modern, ecologically correct and made in Italy using the world's finest and rarest raw materials

The result is our beanie and snood-very warm, yet still very breathable and very lightweight, easy to be folded and put in your bag or your pocket, unisex and passe-partout, to wear while training each morning, but also having a touch of sporty elegance for late afternoon or evening. And because I’m not a «pro», deliberately kept simple and uncluttered by fancy logos or similar decorative elements. A perfect mix of tradition, aesthetic purity and chic minimalism, with a clean and contemporary mood.

We focused on 2 ranges of temperature, zero for early winter and sottozero (below zero)for those extra cold days. We decided to use a fantastic yarn, 70% Australian extra-fine Merino wool and 30% cashmere, made in Italy by the best Italian manufacturer. We chose to dedicate the collection to the iconic colours of the most famous cycling races: the lightblue «azzurro» of the the old jersey of the Nazionale, the pink «rosa» and cyclamen «ciclamino» of the jerseys worn by the leader and the best climber at the Giro d‘Italia, the yellow «1933» of the jersey worn by the leader at the Paris-Nice, the beige «roubaix» of the cobbles, mud and dust of the Paris-Roubaix, the grey «rouleur» of the asphalt.

On year later the iconic zero
was born.

silk

leggera is part of the same project, a natural, very light and again more breathable material, with a minimal and modern design, to wear for spring or early fall rides but at the same time a very chic fashion accessory.

For the brand new leggera collection we use the super chic and fabulous «mussola di seta» a 100% silk, warped, woven, milled and silkscreen-printed in Como (Lombardia, Italy – a true «terra di ciclismo») using the old traditional technique «stampa a quadro alla comasca».
