Cinelli

Cinelli was founded in 1947 by Cino Cinelli, an ex-professional rider whose palmarés includes victory at the 1943 Milano – San Remo. Though not himself an engineer, Cino was a stubborn perfectionist and within 20 years his company was globally-recognized as the golden standard of racing handlebars and stems as well as the inventor of the world’s first plastic saddle, Unicanitor and the most sought-after Italian racing frames of the period, the mythical Supercorsa (still in production today).

Cinelli’s fusion of Design and Sport begin a new era in the late-2000s with the rise of the urban fixed gear, and subsequently, New Cycling, movement which privileged the values of creativity, non-conformism and counter-cultural aesthetics and attitudes, values totally in-line with Antonio Colombo’s Cinelli which itself has become a symbol of the movement.
