Nevi Titanium

Nevi are a small family run business based in Bergamo, northern Italy. Owned and operated by former Italian Pro rider Sergio Finazzi and his wife Consuelo; Nevi have been fabricating bicycle frames since 1992 and work solely with high grade Titanium. They are an innovative company - they were the first to employ a four bolt face-plate to a stem and back in 1994 created a Titanium frame with integrated seatpost!

Sergio Finazzi's most famous victory was a stage win in the Tirreno-Adriatico in 1987 but his fondest cycling memory from his time as a professional is from a gruelling stage of the 1988 Giro where he finished 7th. Starting in Chiesa Valmanenco, the day saw riders finish in Bormio, exhausted and battered from the cold and bad weather. Finazzi took 7th having ridden through snow on the Passo Gavia and it was this experience that led to the choice of brand name. Nevi being Italian for snow.

Nevi employ some special techniques in the fabrication of their frames. Water jet cutting allows Nevi to create novel shapes and their frame welding takes place in a Vacuum Chamber. The Vacuum chamber is key to Nevi's quality : All air (and therefore impurities) is removed and the chamber filled with Argon, an inert gas. By welding in Argon, the possibility of weld contamination is removed and gasses already dissolved in the metal can be released and removed without reaction, this yields far stronger welds. Welding Titanium is an art-form in itself. Take a look at the welds on a Nevi and you'll notice that they are different from many Ti frames. The Argon welding creates a smooth look to the weld and they are up to 3 times stronger than those from traditional welding. It is Nevi's special processes that allow them to produce a Titanium Road Fork that is strong enough to perform.

Nevi are so proficient working with Titanium that the McLaren F1 team outsource their Titanium parts' production to the company. In addition, Nevi have worked directly with Ferrari to create their incredible fusion process that allows the creation of super-strong parts.
