Description

Bianchi is the world’s oldest bicycle-making company still in existence, founded in 1885 by Eduardo Bianchi in Milan, Italy. No doubt, Bianchi is the pioneer of bicycle development since the beginning:

  • In 1885 Bianchi  pioneered the use of equal-sized wheels with pneumatic rubber tires;
  • Edoardo Bianchi designed first lady bike in 1895 and it was made for Queen Margaret;
  • The Bianchi reputation began when the company sponsored Giovanni Tommasello, the winner of the Grand Prix de Paris in 1899, which evolves into Tour de France;
  • Bianchi presented the first bicycle ever featuring a cardan joint transmission in 1901;
  • They invented the front brake system in 1913;
  • In 1914 Bianchi was a famous and reputed manufacturer: in just one year, production settled on extraordinary figures: 45.000 bicycles, 1.500 motorbikes and 1000 cars;
  • In 1915, Bianchi produced a bike for the Army, equipped with wide-section tyres, folding frame and suspensions on both wheels.

Throughout Bianchi’s 130-year history, the Specialissima name has represented the pinnacle of the Italian legend’s road machine line-up. The ”Specialissima” was introduced in early 1960s as successor of famous ”Campione del mondo” model and remains Bianchi’s top model till today.
