Abstract: We present preliminary results of BeppoSAX observations of seven BL Lac objects selected from the 1 Jy sample. All sources characterized by a peak in their multifrequency spectra at infrared/optical energies seem to show a relatively flat (alpha_x ~0.7 - 0.8) X-ray spectrum. This is in agreement with the supposed dominance of inverse Compton emission in the X-ray band of these sources.
