Tolmino Gios was a professional cyclist, member of the Italian National Team for the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin. In 1948 he established Cicli Gios Torino, when he built the first bike in a small workshop in Torino, Italy. Soon after, Tolmino’s son Alfredo began working for the family company and he is still producing bike frames.
In 1972, BROOKLYN created anew professional cycling team, headed by two of the biggest stars of the era, Roger De Vlaeminck and Patrick Sercu and they choosed GIOS as a bike supplier. Famous ‘GIOS BLUE’ colour was developed by Alfredo Gios to match stars and stripes on the jersey of the BROOKLYN team. This unique and recognisable colour combined with the success became an iconic part of a rich Italian cycling history…. and to this day enjoys an almost cult among cycling enthusiasts worldwide.
