Cinelli Veltrix Disc Brake
Veltrix is a carbon monocoque frame born for competition: quick, easy handling and high performance. Its easy handling makes it suitable for multiple uses. This bike is perfect for the pro but also suitable for those who want to ride at a less competitive pace. These wise uses of carbon fiber along with an optimal sizing of the sections of the frame elements make it a particularly high performance vehicle.
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.
