Shown in the opening scene, of the legendary cycling movie A Sunday In Hell, the Benotto bikes were some of the iconic bicycles of the 1970s and early 1980s. Benotto was founded by Giacinto Benotto in Torino, Italy, in 1931. Like so many Italian bike manufacturers of the era, Benotto himself was a passionate racer and had first hand experience of the competitive world of racing. He knew of the need for high-quality designs.

The brother's brand would also sponsor a series of successful professional cycling teams. 11 World Championship titles have been won by riders of Benotto bicycles.
The top model of the brand was, for a long time the
Benotto 3000.
The frame was made from
Columbus tubing and only the best Campagnolo components were installed.

This is the same specification bike that Francesco Moser rode to victory in the 1977 World Road Race Championship in 1977.
