Scicon Honours Pozzato with Custom AeroComfort 2.0
Filippo Pozzato is one of the biggest personalities in Italian cycling. He’s also extremely talented on a bike and was first scooped up by legendary Mapei-Quick Step in 2000 and has since then ridden for Liquigas, Fassa Bortolo, Quick Step-Innergetic, Katusha and is now with Lampre-Merida and has won several individual Grand Tour stages alongside Tirreno-Adriatico in 2003, Milan-San Remo in 2006, E3 Harelbeke in 2009 and the National Road Race Championships in 2009.
Scicon have built a close relationship with Pozzato over the past few years with our parent company ASG International developing a Filippo Pozzato clothing and accessories line which is exclusively available to buy online.
He’s a huge fan of the AeroComfort 2.0 bike bag, he tells us:
The AeroComfort 2.0 is the perfect travel solution for a pro cyclist because it’s light, comfortable and easy to move. My bike is perfectly protected and fixed and there’s space for the wheels.
Pozzato is has been using the Scicon bike bag to travel the world from race to training camp to race for several years now. His Team- Lampre-Merida do a huge amount of air miles each year. They sent us a travel report at the beginning of this year that we turned into an infographic that you can look at here.
We decided to celebrate Pozzato’s long list of career highlights by designing him a custom AeroComfort 2.0 TSA. He gave us a lot of input as to how he wanted the bag to look and this is what the collaboration resulted it!
Pozzato told us that he really like the custom camouflage AeroComfort we did for Vittorio Brumotti and so we used the same material for his. We added his logo which is used on his clothing and accessories line and added his personal slogan which he has tattooed on his back using the same font: Only God Can Judge Me. Pozzato is a devoted Catholic, you’ll see him crossing himself before every race.
You’ll also see the number 17 on the bag- that’s Pozzato’s lucky number.
This special edition AeroComfort is not available for general resale but our classic AeroComfort 2.0 TSA is available here.
