Superstar reinterprets, at the highest degree of innovation in carbon fiber, the legendary Italian competition bicycle on the track, the Cinelli that embodies the brand's heritage and DNA.
Unlike other brands that every year offer bicycles with an increasingly reduced use destination, Cinelli developed Superstar with a meticulous attention to how the intrinsic qualities of carbon fiber and the production processes could be used to create a tremendous edition contemporary of the legendary Italian "Grand Tour" quality in the saddle: an intelligent balance of lightness, perfect maneuverability on any surface and comfort over long distances.
Founded in 1948 by Cino Cinelli, an Italian road cyclist who became a professional racer between 1937 to 1944. Cinelli won the Milan–San Remo in 1943, the Giro di Lombardia in 1938, and the Tour of the Apennines in 1937. Cino became interested in bicycle technology after experiencing mechanical failures during races. He began developing innovative new product designs, but failed to gain manufacturer support from others in the bike industry. So Cino partnered with his brother Giotto, who was producing steel stems and bars in Florence. He soon moved the company to Milan, which had become the center of the Italian cycling industry…and art. In 1978, Antonio Colombo, owner of the world-renowned Columbus tubing, assumed presidency of the company, and in 1997 Cinelli became a division of Gruppo S.r.l. The company is still—to this day—run very much like a family business. And like all lovers of cycling, Antonio still very much enjoys riding bikes.
