Giovanni PINARELLO’s impoverished and simple upbringing was not able to extinguish a passion Giovanni discovered he hard for the “Two Wheels”.
With his determination and his love for the bicycle, Giovanni was able to make his dream come true. He made it possible to borrow whatever he needed to become part of the world of cycling. So at the age of seventeen, he began competing in the junior’s category. Giovanni’s dream soon became a reality and his passion began to bring him many victories. In 1947, after winning over sixty titles as an amateur, he became a member of the professional world of cycling. He was part of the professional cycling world until 1953, with five wins to his mention. With the end of this cycling career, the birth and realization of yet another of Giovanni’s passions arose, the PINARELLO (the bicycle).
An extraordinary history including such illustrious names as Miguel Indurain and more recently Bradley Wiggins, PINARELLO is one name in cycling that exudes success and class.
Despite the increasing demands of a frenetic market they never cut corners when it comes to pure research…
Research into new materials, new geometric solutions, new systems to use in their production process. For them, research and new concepts are never just “marketing pre-tests”, but rather, true progress and innovation. This is why they are their own first testers. Everyday, they test tubes, frames, forks and components on the roads that surround us, testimonial sites of legendary feats, from Montello to the Dolomites. If they withstand their relentless tests, they are then passed onto champions and then onto you. This is the only way they can be sure that they are offering you the very best.
