Hi all

Browsing for the eternal N+1 next buy I came across German make Benotti, which owns AX Lightness. They sell a range of framesets and complet bikes under their own name, which are (supposedly) manufactured by AX Lightness in Germany. There seems to have been an upgraded frameset since the acquisition of AX L, so hopefully some of their knowledge has trickled down (at least that's what they want to suggest on the website).

Searching the net I found only one fairly old review and on this forum there is only one, which is actually the real Vial Evo but branded as Benotti. My interest is the new, upgraded Fuoco Team and thus I am reaching out for input :noidea:

Spec, geometry and price all make the Benotti Fuoco Team rather attractive, but I'd be happy to hear if anyone has any real-life experience with this or the regular Fuoco model before pulling the trigger?

i am not shure, if you are aware of it: the Fuoco Team is not manufactured by ax-lightness. its just a labeled china-frame and has nothing to do with ax.
only the vial evo comes from ax-lightness.
