A brand synomous with innovation and Italian craftsmanship
Gipiemme was founded in Milan in 1964 as mechanical workshop.
The early years were focused on the design and production of bicycles's parts and components for third parties, until finally they began producing their own groupsets. The most famous; bagar, cronosprint, alto and azzurro.
The following years Gipiemme quickly gained a reputation for innovation in the industry.
In the eighties Gipiemme specialised more so in cycling components; while in 1980 saw the first production of frame components such as the famous forcellini. 1984 saw the production of the very first wheel entirely made in carbon and in 1985 Gipiemme completed the first production of complete wheels for Track and time trial.
These revolutionary wheels in glass fiber, called "Lenticular" due to their typical "lens" form, have been the starting point for the development of this incredible product.
In 1989, Gipiemme starts the exclusive production of rayed wheels in aluminium and in carbon fibre both provided with aeronautics technology.
During 1992 Gipiemme fullfils the range of products changing completely the classical spoke wheel, creating the Tecno 416.
In 1999 Gipiemme presents the first wheel formed with CNC and the wheels with spokes regrouped three by three and four by four.
In 2002 Gipiemme develops and sells in a world exclusive the SBS Short Breaking System patent that guarantees the reduction of the breaking distance while keeping the roadholding safety.
The rims, wheels, saddles and handlebars made by Gipiemme and NISI are entirely produced in Italy, in the factory located in Loria (TV).
