Bianchi: In 1885 Edoardo Bianchi launched the now-famous brand with his first shop in Via Nirone, Milan. Since that date the unmistakable Celeste colour has marked it's presence throughout the history of cycling. Legendary riders such as Fausto Coppi, Felice Gimondi, Moreno Argentin, Gianni Bugno and Marco Pantani built their careers riding a Bianchi bike and helped build one of the most impressive palmares of any bike manufacturer - 13 Giro d'Italia, 19 Milan San-Remo, 16 Giro di Lombardia and 10 World Championship titles have been won with the famous Celeste colours.

Thanks to our partnership with Bianchi, you too can experience what it's like to ride a legend - to ride a Bianchi!

Hutchinson A French firm founded in 1853 by Hiram Hutchinson in Langlée near Montargis, France, Hutchinson began developing its expertise in coated textiles production with the Aigle brand.

In 1890, Hutchinson started manufacturing bicycle tires.
In 1909 the brand won its first victory in competition thanks to Léon Georget using monofilament tires. The world's greatest cyclists wore the brand's colors as they climbed peaks and racked up victories on the Tour de France (Louis Bobet in 1953, 1954 and 1955; Jacques Anquetil in 1957, 1961, 1962, 1963 and 1964). Raymond Poulidor extended this glorious period with the famous collaboration between Mercier and Hutchinson.

In 1983, Hutchinson launched the first 26'' mountain bike tire, helping to spread recreational biking to the masses.
In 1999 the brand teamed up with Mavic (wheel manufacturer) to launch the first tubeless tire for mountain bikes. It adapted the innovation in 2006 with the introduction of the first road tubeless bike tire.
It is currently the only French bicycle tire manufacturer that manufactures its products in France.

Today, for road and mountain biking, Hutchinson continues to stand out among the greatest names: This year Hutchinson was partner of the Europcar and FDJ Big Mat team, which won five stage victories during the 2012 Tour de France.
