What can be said about one of the most iconic bicycle builders in the history of bicycles? Bianchi, the world's oldest bicycle manufacturing company still in existence, will be celebrating its 125th anniversary this year.
Edoardo Bianchi opened his doors in 1885 as a 21 year old man with a fresh vision of how bicycles should be made. He began by looking areas of the bicycle that could be improved upon and set out to design them better. First, Bianchi managed to lessen the width of the front wheel and lower the standard tall pedal location thus creating a bicycle that was much more stable and ultimately safer.
Few bike brands come close to the heritage and pedigree that defines the Bianchi brand. Even the Celeste color by which the Bianchi brand identifies itself with is an iconic symbol of one of the greatest bicycle manyfacturers of all time. Innovation, exclusiveness, quality, design and passion—these are the driving forces behind the industry leading bicycles from Bianchi. Through integrating new technology and ground breaking innovations with a deep lineage rooted in the heart of bike racing’s history, Bianchi continues to elevate its brand name in the cycling industry. As an Italian company, craftsmanship and attention to detail are only matched by the insurmountable quality of the materials chosen to create their bikes. Bianchi bicycles are synonymous with excellence and superiority.
