Campagnolo (Italy) - Meet Team Cinelli Smith at Campagnolo HQs, the perfect place to celebrate the renewed friendship between the two historic brands of Italian cycling. Moreover, bringing together Italian excellence around the Team Cinelli Smith project.
The athletes of Team Cinelli Smith represent contemporary cycling in its plurality and multidisciplinary nature, each of them with their own distinct personality and ability to push the bicycle beyond its usual boundaries, cross pollinating spaces, activities and meanings.
The team, born in 2014 as an authentic interpreter of the New Fixed Gear Cycling with its creative, non-conformist and counter-culture values, is in constant evolution. Today, intercepting the weak signals of the New Cycling, and driving its strong ones, it is the ambassador of the joy and freedom of sharing experiences and experimenting on different territories, within the framework of the great Outdoors.
Literally exploded in recent years, gravel runs through the history of Cinelli since the Passatore in 1989, "King of the road, King of the forest". Today, for the multifaceted Cinelli Smith Team, gravel is pure common ground, one of the declinations of the cycling styles and disciplines that each athlete embodies.
The dust is that of heroic cycling in its epic grandeur; it is the dirty dust of today's gravel that expands the boundaries of cycling beyond tarmac; and it is at the same time the powder of freeriding, ski mountaineering, snowboarding...
Made in Italy:
Cinelli and Campagnolo are the essence of Italian cycling and over the years they have shaped its trends and style, imposing themselves as cultural references for a certain cycling style. A team with a unique identity is the ideal platform to continue this storytelling, in its contemporary mood.
A modern tale centred on the passion for cycling in all its forms and the use of innovative, strictly Italian products.
And from these same values was born the Campagnolo Ekar gravel groupset assembled on the Cinelli Smith Team bicycles to express the unique values of meticulous technological research and love for style, lightness and total reliability.
