    How do you pronounce Sette

    My son is getting a Sette Instinct and we have a disagreement. What is the correct pronunciation of Sette?

    Was wondering the same. I guess a short a sound and sliding z sound are wrong for Razzo. More like palazzo with the a sounding like a short o and the first z sounding like a combined dt. Kind of like rot-zo?

    I always thought it was pronounced like "set". I doubt I'm right though.

    Hey guys checkout their LOGO its a #7 so wouldn't that indicate or give you a hint that it would have to do something with the #7 in Italian? checkout the top left corner and then read the bottom right of this link... http://www.setteusa.com/AboutUs.htm

    No worries dood, I was agreeing with you - just pointing it out to others that were mispronouncing it i.e. "set" or "seht"

    FWIW, I preferred being naive about it - I used to pronounce it 'settie' - now when I have to tell someone what my bike is, I sound like an duche - like someone who over-pronounces Mozzarella

    I would assume with a 'T' inflection on the first 'Z'
    like Mot'-zer-ell-ah
    i.e.: Raht'-zoh
