Nisi 'Campione del Mondo' ...in 1988, Nisi were saying that "its green
years are past...." and that it was the "father of the Corsa Stretto" -
their most successful rim - Given that it came in at about one quarter of the price of
their top rim - the G27 - I think it was more a sales special in 1988, but as the story
behind the 'Campione del Mondo' is that Fausto Coppi won the World championship on these
rims in 1953 and they produced the Gold anodized version as a tribute to this. Also
available in 450, 500, 550, and 600C sizes!"
"As a tribute to (cycles de ORO), the Nisi part number was R260AORO!"
