Cinelli – a piece of cycling history from Bella Italia
HIGH-QUALITY ROAD BIKE PARTS BY THE CULT BRAND CINELLI
Some names make road bike enthusiasts clicking their tongue – and Cinelli is definitely one of them. The company that was founded near Milan in 1947 has always stood for exquisite road bike frames and components. The brand became popular with the combination of finest materials, high-quality workmanship and an Italian design.
Cino Cinelli, who had been an experienced and successful athlete himself before founding the brand, has brought a whole lot of innovations to the modern cycling sector: ranging from aluminium handlebars, a saddle with plastic core and pedals with strap through to pedals with quick release. Cinelli loves and lives road cycling, every single component is refined with decades of practical experience.
The cork handlebar tape that was launched in 1987 and is still produced in an improved version is also part of Cinelli’s product range. As a contact point between bicycle and rider, handlebar tapes play an important role. Cinelli has perfected this component with a lot of love and expertise. The athletes can choose between handlebars with anti-slip microfibre, comfortable Bubble Ribbon with bubbles of air trapped in it and classic cork handlebar tapes – with or without gel insert – and are thus able to adapt this part of their bike to their personal preferences and needs. Many different colours top off the product range – ranging from discreet, elegant colours through to bright ones.
