Mario Rossin worked as a frame builder at Colnago for several years. After a conflict with Ernesto Colnago, he and his 4 partners from amatuer team founded Cicli Rossin, on September 14, 1974. The “R” in the Rossin logo was adopted from Rossignol skis, and the pentagon represents the five founding members of the company. Mario Rossin was the design genius behind the company’s begining and ever since then the Rossin name has been one of innovation and racing success. Rossin became high profile bike manufacturer through 1980s and 1990s with sposnsoring top level teams.
In mid 1980s Rossin was synonim for very futuristic looking bikes which were ahead of the time back then.
