Italian Brand Scapin Now in U.S.

Published March 22, 2009

TORINO, Italy (BRAIN)—The high-end Italian road bike brand Scapin is now being distributed in the United States by Global Trail Cycling Imports.

Global Trail Cycling Imports already distribute Guerciotti Italian Cycles, ITM, Barbieri and GIOS.

Founded in 1957 by Umberto Scapin, a former pro rider, the Scapin brand has become renown through time, for the peculiar craftsmanship, high quality and technological excellence of its creations.

The Fontana family, owners of the Olympia brand, bought Scapin in 2005 and started investing in research and development, guided by the experience of the firm’s historical designer, Stefano Scapin.

Today, the Scapin brand offers a full range of high quality mountain bikes and road racing frames and complete bikes, specifying full carbon fiber or full steel frames as well as creative but highly performing mixed solutions.
