Sarto is an Italian custom bicycle frame manufacturer. The company founded by Antonio Sarto in 1950. Since then, they’re producing handmade custom bicycle frames.
Sarto produce more than 2500 frames each year. They see the customization as their strength, which allows them to satisfy the customer’s every need: the choice of materials, the shape of the tubes, made-to-measure geometries, graphics and reinforcements in Kevlar or titanium/carbon. Every feature of a Sarto frame can be changed and selected by the customer.
Sarto design and create new models each year, which are presented at the important trade fairs before making their way around the world.
The company has been working with carbon for more than 15 years, from the time when frames wereglued together at the joints. Starting in 2002, the company began producing laminated frames, a process that originated from the need to “customize” and make every piece unique.
The company is equipped with 4 kilns, 1 clean room (a temperature-controlled aseptic area used for laminating), 2 pressurized cabins for filing and painting processes and a massive dust extraction system, all designed to ensure the safety and health of the specialized staff.
Here are the Sarto Frames 2015 series below:
Lampo is the custom carbon frame which combines aerodynamic features with stiffness into a unique bicycle. Through careful CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamic) analysis, every profile of the tube set that forms Sarto Lampo has been optimized from the aerodynamic point of view.
The down tube that integrates the fork, ISOFLOW seat stays, internal cable routing, seat tube with Kamm tail aero profile are just some of the most striking aspects resulting from aerodynamic studies. In addition to these peculiar characteristics that identify Lampo, the high stiffness of the frame enhanced by the integrated oversized seat tube minimizes the energy dissipation.
The right balance between aerodynamics and stiffness makes Lampo the ideal frame for speed, gran fondo and triathlon.

“Every year we renew our selection of frames by researching and studying improvements to apply to new products. We dedicate months of our time to research and experimentation, creating new products and testing them first on the computer and then letting our team test them on the road, to always ensure the highest performance and yield.”
“We believe in the services we offer, we believe in the product made entirely in Italy with our own hands. Thanks to this combination of factors, we are positioned in an exclusive market segment, allowing our flag to outshine over other nations, without fear of competition.”
