RIDING | Exept Team • 2'

Many passions, a unique bike.

Ivan biggest passion is cycling and he fell in love at first sight with EXEPT.

My name is Ivan Corridori, I was born in Rome and I’m a big fan of photography. It is such a great passion that I have done everything I can to make it my profession. I work a lot with Instagram (@aivenn) and with many important brands.

Photography is not my only passion. I also love doing sports, and cycling is one of my favorites. I take great care of my bike and pay particular attention to the details.

I have always struggled to find a good position in the saddle because my correct size is in between the standard sizes. While I was browsing the Internet looking for a product that suited me and could offer me high performance, I found myself on the EXEPT website and discovered that there is a section dedicated to the configurator, so that you can create a bike perfectly tailored to you from the comfort of your home. Unbelievable! So, I started designing mine choosing all the components and technical specifications, personalizing every detail. After selecting the color and the integrated version, the SRAM Red eTap WiFLi group, the DT Swiss wheels, I had the bike of my dreams.

Now the most difficult part had arrived, or so I thought, but in reality it was easy: choosing the perfect size. There is a simple method created by the guys at EXEPT that allowed me to measure parts of my body by myself and, once the measurements were inserted into the system, it designed the frame to fit me perfectly. Eight weeks after placing the order, my EXEPT was ready.

They could have sent it to my home but I decided to go in person to Finale Ligure to check out the showroom and get to know the team. Once there, I was greeted with open arms by the guys at EXEPT.

Inside their headquarters there is a place to test the bikes. I was rather curious to see if the size calculated by the configurator was correct for me, so I did a bike fitting. The size was just right.

At that point I only had to try it on the road and Finale Ligure was the right place, being recognized at a European level as a reference point for cycling, both on the road and for enduro. The first ride on my new EXEPT was truly an unforgettable experience!
