Officine Mattio is the first Italian bike manufacturer to offer Classified carbon wheels with Powershift technology on its bikes.
“Officine Mattio is pleased to announce that starting from November 2021, customers will be able to choose the Powershift hub and wheelsets from Classified Cycling on OM models.”
Classified’s innovative 2-speed wireless gearing system, integrated into the rear hub, makes it possible to instantaneously change from one gear to another, under full load and on any terrain. Reliable and superfast, Classified’s technology replaces the classic front derailleur and is perfectly compatible with 11 and 12 speed rear derailleurs.” See Gravel Cyclist’s Video from 2021 Sea Otter about Classified Cycling, HERE.

“Based in Cuneo, in north-west Italy, Officine Mattio was established in 2013 by Giovanni Monge Roffarello, who has 24 years of experience in this field, as a passionate cyclist, racer, team manager, and store owner, before establishing Officine Mattio. The brand’s mission is to create exceptional, beautiful, hand-crafted frames, using the best materials, the latest cutting-edge technology and producing entirely in Italy. The first product to reach the market was Lemma, a frame wrapped in carbon fibre named after Giovanni’s favorite local climbs. The steel-made Brondello and Eremo ensued, followed in turn by the SL (Superleggera in carbon fiber) and the gravel Santiago. In 2019 Giovanni was joined by four partners: Davide Lauro, Ricardo Pichetta, Roberto Barra and Luca Bertero. In 2021 Officine Mattio opened a new modern location in Cuneo. Today the company employs more than 20 people including internal employees and external collaborators.
