Bianchi is the world's oldest bicycle manufacturing company still in existence. Their cutting edge technology, performance, and signature "celeste" beauty are just some of the components that contribute to their renowned bicycles. Few other marques can match their racing pedigree and cycling history.

Brief History

In 1885, at 21 years of age, Edoardo Bianchi started his enterprise as a bicycle manufacturer in his first little shop on Via Nirone in Milan. From the beginning, he vowed to achieve his personal and professional independence by adopting an honest approach to his business dealings; above all, his policy was to offer a high quality, finished product using ony the very best materials. His creative mind and entrepreneurial skills filled the little factory with inventions, innovations, new products, and remarkable success.

Bianchi was the first to produce a bike model with equal sized wheels and, shortly thereafter, the first to use air-filled rubber tires, a recent invention by Scottish veterinary John Boyd Dunlop. As I'm sure you can imagine, this was only the beginning of extraordinary things to come.


Today, Bianchi makes a full selection of bikes and it's no surprise that they utilize the most cutting-edge materials. They’re experts with ultra-light aluminum alloys, aerospace-grade titanium, boron steel and nano-technology carbon.

Every single bike, whether steel or carbon, road or mountain, is designed and produced according to Bianchi’s exact specifications.

In addition to stellar materials, Bianchi is always looking for technology to improve the feel of the bike's riding characteristics.
For example, they use a patented visco-elastic material embedded withi
n a frame's carbon layup to significantly reduce road vibrations and chatter. Exclusively used by Bianchi, Countervail Technology is just one example of their brilliant engineering.

And, every new development is tested and proven both in the lab and by professional riders. It's really no wonder why Bianchi produces such amazing bikes and wins so many races!
