Named simply Sportif this model is a steel frame road bicycle built to perform with elegance. Light and confident, agile and stable, quick and forgiving, tig-welded and constructed with a specially selected blend of tubing, the Sportif exemplifies the heart of Cielo’s design ideals. Drawing insight from the time tested classic steel road racing bicycles of the 70’s and 80’s and combined with an inspired, modern geometry, the Sportif is a joy to ride. A handmade Cielo fork featuring our Chris King machined fork crown perfectly compliments the Sportif ride. The rear wheel is anchored to our made-in-house, Cielo, vertical dropouts and the frame is designed around mid reach 57mm brake calipers to provide ample tire and fender clearance. The frame and fork include fender braze-ons to accommodate our beautiful painted to match fenders. The Sportif is Cielo tradition refined. 

Cielo Stem

Cielo is now offering Cielo Racer Stems made in-house by the Cielo builders. Our stems are available in a variety of sizes and lengths and are offered in the full spectrum of Cielo paint colors to match your Cielo frame. The faceplates are available in the same beautifully anodized colors available on Chris King Components. Click to learn more.

Additional Options

Make the front derailleur mount nice and clean with a braze-on front derailleur tab compatible with both compact and standard cranksets. Add a pump peg, available standalone or with a painted to match Silica frame pump that looks so good you will almost want to get a flat. Of course once you get your Cielo you wont want anything to stop you from riding it. Paint to match fenders will keep you dry and help your drivetrain last longer in harsh conditions.
