For those unfamiliar with the Sarto brand, it’s no terzista. Rather, the Sarto name is considered by cycling’s cognoscenti, as the “house” from which all Italian bike marques, at one time or another, emanated from.
Indeed, for more than a century, the list of prestigious brands that were manufactured under the roof of Sarto’s factory, would read like a who’s who of all things Italian bicycles.
Today, Sarto continues producing more than 2500 private label frames in its factory in Venice, for many of Italy’s most elite brands.
However, it wasn’t until the last couple of years or so, that Sarto started producing handmade, bespoke bikes under its own name.
During this period, Sarto has come to offer a full range of both road and mountain bikes. And, as of recent, they’ve answered the call to the ever-growing “gravel” segment, with their new TA Gravel model.
In addition to encompassing all of Sarto’s handmade, carbon fabrication brilliance, the TA Gravel features the latest in disc brake and thru-axle technology. But, perhaps its greatest appeal, might be the leather embellishments on the top tube and chainstays, that not only offer protection, but smack of old-world Italian bike heritage.
