A tribute to Fausto, Champion of Champions
The Cima scarf has been created as a tribute to Fausto Coppi’s achievements in cycling. It is crafted from versatile silk, which keeps you both warm in the cold and cool in the heat. Silk scarves also prove a useful emergency windbreak when descending off climbs.
Fausto Coppi (1919-1960) was one of the greatest cyclists of all time. Beloved by fans and fellow riders alike, the man from Piedmont, Italy, became known as Il Campionissimo - Champion of Champions. Coppi’s achievements were numerous. He remains one of the most decorated cyclists of all time and his palmares set new standards for the sport. His greatest victories are listed down the spine of this scarf while his eight-point ‘Code of Champions’ runs on either side. Printed beneath is a backdrop of illustrations and fonts from publications of the time.
