How a Legend is born

Italy is a nation renowned for its style and class. Italian bikes are no different. When we think of a beautiful road bike, most of us would most likely conjure up images of a Pinarello, or a Colnago. Yes, these bike are stunning to look at, they are functional for the purpose they serve, and the high end models will cost a small fortune. What they are not, is bespoke.

Marco and Legend

A truly bespoke bike is just that, bespoke. It is made to fit the needs and wants of the person riding it. From the frame material, geometry, paint and finishing kit, Legend will have an option. This is where Marco Bertoletti comes in.

Since 2009, Marco and his small team of expert craftsmen have been building truly magnificent bikes for riders all around the world.

Marco Bertaletti

“In this new adventure, I gave it everything I had: acquired expertise, passion, and new ideas to create the best frames and bicycles in the world.

The profound knowledge of materials and their evolution – aluminum, steel, stainless steel, titanium, and carbon. The very high degree of customization of my frames helped build Legend – a brand that in its name has its destiny.

Today, from Australia to Dubai, “Legend by Bertoletti” represents the dream of many cyclists among Italian bicycles manufacturers. An achievable dream. Just define a budget, know yourself and your goals, then rely on my experience.” – Marco bertoletti.

Your legend, your way

No matter what your cycling goals are, Legend will have an option for you. The options are almost endless. After a full on carbon racer? Maybe a long lasting, super durable titanium cruiser? Maybe a mixture of both? Legend will have you covered. You can view some of Legends options by clicking the below link.

The process

“For the design, construction and painting of a “Legend by Bertoletti” frame, at least 50/60 days are needed. Every detail is carefully looked after to meet the highest quality standards. Just as well, every new frame model is subjected through a tough stress and crash test. Compact or traditional, competing or comfortable, every frame uses the latest technology, while continuing to look for new technical solutions in application. Your bicycle will need to be perfectly suited to your physical and athletic needs to guarantee the performance you have always dreamed of.” – Marco Bertoletti.
