Scicon // 1.500 masks donated to Princess Charlene of Monaco foundation

SCICON, the Italian sporting apparel and accessories specialists, wanted to join the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic by offering a donation of 1,500 masks produced in its Italian factories, to the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation.

These reusable masks, made of high-quality technical fabric, can be washed up to 40 times and are intended for professional use. Each mask carries the #strongtogether logo as a message of unity and international solidarity. This operation was brilliantly coordinated by M. Gareth Wittstock, Secretary-General of Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation together with his team and the SCICON boys led by Claudio Fantin who worked together with the sole objective of delivering in record time the COVID-19 filter screens.

About Scicon

SCICON was born out of a garage near Bassano del Grappa in Italy, the heart of the cycling industry, 1980 to solve the problem of how professional cyclists travel with their bikes. The evolution over time has created a brand that not only solves problems but inspires adventure around the world. After becoming an icon in the design and production of the world’s best bike travel bags, SCICON became synonymous with a long list of champions. Today, SCICON is the most in-demand brand for athletes who travel on their bikes.

Combining a passion to inspire to broaden horizons with an in- house wealth of technical knowledge, expertise, and history in the market, the introduction of sports eyewear in 2019 was a logical step. We have created a collection in line with our values of quality, comfort, and obsessive attention to detail.

Our commitment is to guarantee perfect clarity, visual comfort, and protection. Based near the Cadore valley, the global home of eyewear production, our team of industry experts dedicates their time to look for new technical solutions, performance materials, and eye-catching designs to continue making athletes’ lives easier.
