The year it all began...
"Quality is our obsession, and our bikes are still rolling..."
Design activities are added to
our traditional retail activities.
The first bikes to be designed by the brand's collaborators from A to Z are developed.
Everyone strives to develop exclusive and technically outstanding products offering the best quality / price combination.
"Warranty with a smile" is deployed in all stores
A strategy focused entirely on customer satisfaction that led to the creation of services such as the 5-year frame warranty and
2-year parts warranty, free servicing, regional workshops and our "satisfied or money back" service offer.
