The Carrera bicycle is the product of highly innovative technologies and designs not only to improve ride performance but to meet aesthetic demands of style and Italian taste. The result is a bicycle of the highest quality and of the most advanced raw materials and built to meet the rigorous demands of professional road racing. The Carrera-Podium design team, led by former professional Luciano Bracchi, are the trend setters in this modern age of high performance bicycles. Avant garde frame designs such as Phibra and Erakle and the ultralight products of SL730 clearly make Carrera the leading marquee. While others follow, Carrera Podium leads and the leadership is in the testing labratory as well as the roads in the Italian lake district outside the headquarters in Calcinato, Italy. The result is a bicycle for you to enjoy and to race and train with a unique product. Why ride an ordinary bicycle when you can ride an extraordinary Carrera.
The Carrera-Podium workshop was founded in 1989 by former professional rider and Carrera team manager Davide Boifava. The brand was born from the needs of the Carrera Team and its champions Steven Roche, Claudio Chiappucci and Marco Pantani. The workshop had a unique synergy because the professional team worked from the same building and the team riders were built in product testers. The Carrera bicycle brand has a rich history of over 500 victories in the most demanding road races in Europe. Many firsts were achieved at Podium such as the first frame in which aluminum was joined to carbon and the first custom on size carbon frame made in Italy. They were among the first to build titanium frame for professional racing and the use of ceramical aluminum to improve the comfort of aluminum racing bikes. Carrera is always the leader as evidence in the design of Phibra which is the perfect blend of stiffness and power along with comfort and compliance. Join the Carrera team and you can ride a bicycle of innovative design and ultimate Italian quality
