PADUA, Italy (BRAIN) — The Italian saddle brand Astute has announced that Ciclista-America will be its distributor in the U.S. for the 2018 season. The brand has been distributed in the U.S. by MC2 until recently.

Astute said it is “widely expanding” its presence in the U.S. market next year. 

“For some time, MC2 and Mr. Ming Tan have been great ambassadors of the Astute brand in the USA and we would like to thank them for their efforts to publicize the spirit of the Astute brand,” the company’s Andrea Rizzato said.

“However, after this successful partnership, Astute is passing the torch to Ciclista-America who deeply shares in our passion for fine Italian cycling products. With their existing top brands like Sidi Cycling Shoes and Suomy Cycling helmets, and their recognizable Italian DNA, Ciclista-America has a clear focus on high quality, high technology products,” Rizzato said. 

The complete Astute line available in the U.S. will be on display at the Interbike show in September.
