Why choose a Carrera bike?
Carrera bikes are the culmination of revolutionary technologies and designs that not only seek to optimize performance but also adhere to the aesthetic standards of refined Italian taste. These bikes are constructed with advanced materials to meet the demands of professional cycling competitions. Under the guidance of former professional cyclist Luciano Bracchi, the design team has set new standards in the contemporary era of high-performance bikes. Advanced frame designs such as Phibra and Erakle, as well as the ultralight SL730, place Carrera at the forefront of the industry. The resulting bikes are works of art for pleasure, racing, and training.
Carrera, history and tradition of Italian cycling
Carrera-Podium was founded in 1989 by Davide Boifava, a former professional cyclist and manager of the Carrera team. The brand was born out of the needs of the Carrera team and its champions Steven Roche, Claudio Chiappucci, and Marco Pantani. The workshop had a unique synergy as the professional team worked in the same building where the team riders tested the product.
The Carrera bike brand has a rich history of over 500 victories in Europe's most demanding races. Its commitment to innovation has led to the creation of the first frame combining aluminum and carbon as well as the first custom-made carbon frame produced in Italy. It has also been a pioneer in the construction of titanium frames for professional racing and in the use of ceramic aluminum to improve the comfort of aluminum racing bikes.
Its pursuit of excellence is evident in the Phibra design, which is the perfect combination of stiffness and power with comfort and adaptability.

What are the advantages of buying a refurbished Carrera bike?
Buying a refurbished bike offers three main advantages:
The first is economic. By choosing to buy a used refurbished bike from Tuvalum, you can save between 20% and 60% compared to the price of a new bike.
The second advantage is mechanical revision. While it is possible to buy a used Carrera bike from an individual, most platforms and second-hand product applications do not guarantee the condition of the items sold. You would then have to trust a stranger and risk buying a bike with hidden damages. At Tuvalum, all bikes are meticulously inspected and refurbished by our team of mechanics, ensuring that each bike meets the same technical standards and approvals required by the European Union for new bikes. Additionally, they come with a one-year mechanical warranty and an 18-month repurchase guarantee.
Another good reason to buy a refurbished Carrera bike is its positive impact on sustainable development. By opting for a bike that has already been manufactured, you contribute to reducing the ecological footprint generated by the purchase of a new bike. Did you know that a new bike produces a carbon footprint of 300 kilograms of CO2 during its manufacturing process?
