First Look: The OM1 S From Italian Maker Officine Mattio
Looking for a bike that stands out from the pack? This may just be your steed. Proudly made in Italy, the OM1 S is the latest release from Officine Mattio.
A smaller-scale producer of fine bikes, Officine Mattio are made in the Cuneo area near the French border - between the Alps and the sea where the young brand has its roots.
The company say power, stability and reliability encapsulate what the new OM1 S is all about.
It has an integrated carbon fiber handlebar, oversized aero aerodynamic shaping, a unique collar connecting the steering column to the headtube, thus making the handlebar- steerer-fork combination streamlined and homogeneous.
It's disc-only and will accommodate tyres to 36mm. Weight wise, the company say the frame is 920grams unpainted in size medium.
The frame is geometry is bold and gritty, there's no brake bridge, the lower chainstays are slightly arched at the height of the dropout, the oversize headset rests directly on the fork, and cables are fully integrated, regardless of the groupset chosen.
The OM1 S will be available in sizes XS-S-M-L-XL, and the company offer the unique chance to set the bike’s aesthetics through numerous colour combinations and graphic customisations.
