Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli rides with TITICI: a limited edition bike dedicated to the Challenger of Record for the 36th America’s Cup presented by PRADA

The Italian brand presents F-DB02 x Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli, a special model created in three unique pieces for Max Sirena, James Spithill and Francesco Bruni. Spithill and Bruni's bikes will be auctioned off to support One Ocean Foundation’s project “No plastic in the Ocean"

Crafting the perfect bike is a matter of technology and passion, performance and attention to detail: just like creating the winning boat. The excellence of cycling and sailing meet in the exclusive F-DB02 x LUNA ROSSA PRADA PIRELLI, the high performance bike created by TITICI for the prestigious sailing team, Challenger of Record for the 36th America’s Cup presented by PRADA.

The F-DB02 x LUNA ROSSA PRADA PIRELLI model has been produced entirely in Italy in three unique pieces, handmade to measure for team director and skipper Max Sirena and helmsmen James Spithill and Francesco Bruni. The three champions will ride the bike, embellished with their signatures on the frame, during their training in Auckland (New Zealand). TITICI’s technology and innovation support the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli team in its mission: to bring the oldest sport trophy in the world to Italy for the first time.

Performance and comfort Made in Italy

Light, essential and elegant, the TITICI F-DB02 x LUNA ROSSA PRADA PIRELLI model represents the highest synthesis of performance and comfort. The high-end carbon frame features the thinnest top tube in the world, just 8 millimetres – a technology patented by TITICI (Plate Absorber Technology) that allows the F-DB02 frame to absorb up to 18% more vibrations than standard frames, without compromising the high torsional stiffness. Each model is tailor-made to become a natural extension of the rider and complemented by Pirelli P ZERO™ tyres to give Sirena, Bruni and Spithill maximum performance for their rides.

Spithill and Bruni’s bikes up for auction on CharityStars

TITICI and Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli have chosen to auction two of the three F-DB02 x LUNA ROSSA PRADA PIRELLI bikes. Starting from Friday 22 January until Monday 22 February, collectors and enthusiasts will have the chance to buy James Spithill’s or Francesco Bruni’s bike through CharityStars platform.

The proceeds will support the project “No Plastic in the Ocean” promoted by One Ocean Foundation. Every euro raised will contribute to the collection of 2 kg of plastic waste that threatens the coasts of the Pacific Ocean. In collaboration with local organisations, such as Plastic Bank, the waste will be collected and reintroduced into the global manufacturing supply chain, thus encouraging the development of a local circular economy.

TITICI and Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli joined this project motivated by their sensitivity towards the serious problem of plastic litter. Plastic pollution is unfortunately present in all the seas of the world, it closely affects the activities of Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli and the Italian group Trerè Innovation, owner of the TITICI brand. For years Trerè Innovation has been promoting a sustainable production system that respects the seas and the environment.
