The Milano 72 takes its name from the hard-fought victory by Eddy Merckx in the 1972 Giro d'Italia.

With specially selected components such as a comfortable women-specific Prologo Kappa Space STN saddle and Deda stem, bars and seatpost Merckx have ensured that all contact points remain comfortable even during your longer rides.
