A’qto

In a fast and demanding world, it’s about getting the simple things right. For us, that’s about creating rich experiences, having meaningful relationships and sharing good conversation.

We are inspired by the immense reward that comes with completing the toughest ride, the hard work that goes into the preparation, the mental strength needed on the big climbs and the concentration while riding the gravel.

We love the history of cycling, the great races, classic cycling kit, travel, adventure, Italy, family and food. Above all else we value our relationships.

These inspirations and passions combine to form an offering that we are proud of.

Clothing that you will love, and travel to destinations where you will experience cycling, food and people that you will always remember.

Our range of technical apparel and casual clothing is carefully thought out to provide comfort and performance both on and off the bike. Clean look, attention to detail and a quality finish.

Bici e Gusti travel is our way of sharing our favourite locations, cycling routes, stunning accommodation and traditional meals, created by us. We shape experiences like no other, that will inspire and reward.

A’qto is here to share our passion and love. Embrace the long road with us.

Clothing

A’qto has been built around clothing. It is where the journey started for us in 2007.

Quality casual clothing inspired by the things we love. Our designs are limited in number and draw on the culture and history of cycling.

Our Italian made technical cycling kit is inspired by the classics. We use colour and clean design to create products that stand out from the crowd, without being loud. We design our kit to be timeless, not an instant fashion statement.

We are considerate of your needs with our designs. Each piece is intended to work together, providing you the opportunity to mix and match your a’qto kits.

We enjoy working with individuals, team, clubs, corporates and events across Australia, to create timeless design paired with quality materials and craftsmanship.

Bici e Gusti

Bici e Gusti is the next part of our journey. We share our ideal travel experience with you by inviting you to join us on high quality boutique cycling trips across Australia and Europe.

We want you to feel like a guest in our home rather than a customer on a holiday.

You will experience fully supported weekends exploring virtually unknown roads with like-minded riders. We’ll personally create wonderful food for you to complement the experience and share it in hand picked, high quality boutique accommodation.

People

Damian Hancock and Nancy De Losa met at the Audax Alpine Classic in 2012 and are the passionate husband and wife team behind a’qto.

The result of Damian and Nancy’s vision is a brand that truly lives its values, while being professional and reliable.

Damian Hancock

Damian is the creative influence at a’qto. He loves vintage cycling jerseys and caps, each one is far more than a piece of clothing to him, holding its own story and memory.

Food is also much more than a necessity to Damian. It is to be experienced, enjoyed with wine and shared with friends.

Of course, Damian is also a passionate cyclist. He’s travelled many times to Europe with his bike, riding in epic historical events like L’Eroica and more widely around Australia. He seeks out lesser-known routes in many regional and remote areas.

Damian’s favourite races are Paris-Roubaix, Strade Bianche and the Giro D’Italia. Why? Because they reflect the deep history and culture that is European road racing, they have meaning and two out of three are in Italy! 

To Damian, a’qto combines these passions with his commitment to art and strong design. His inspiration comes from his classic cycling jerseys, 1920’s advertising posters, fonts, shields and coats of arms. He creates kits that fuse the necessary performance dimensions of quality and comfort with distinct designs that are born out of a creative take on life and cycling.

Nancy De Losa

With an Italian upbringing, Nancy is passionate about all things Italian. Food, fashion, culture, travel, family, friends, cycling and a’qto are just a few examples.

Nancy is committed to delivering a professional experience to a’qto’s customers, whether it be guiding them through the custom kit process or creating a beautiful experience on a’qto’s Bici e Gusti boutique cycling trips.

A natural entertainer, Nancy’s Italian heritage shows through in her obvious delight in inviting people to share her passion for quality food and produce, while being ever generous with her time. Getting things ‘just right’ is critical to Nancy, applying great attention to detail in everything she takes on.

Nancy’s background in strategic marketing and leadership across a range of business’ has been effectively combined with a’qto, a business born out of passion.

A’qto is here to share our passion and love. Embrace the long road with us.
