Founded nearly 75 years ago, Cinelli has for many years been on the cutting edge of bicycle design, helping push forward materials, welding techniques, and frame designs.

The Italian brand’s expertise extends beyond bicycle frames as well, to stems, handlebars, saddles, and more. And along the way, the brand has pioneered many products that are taken for granted today including cork handlebar tape.
