Pinarello is a bicycle company that started in 1952, founded by Giovanni Pinarello, in Treviso, Italy. It mostly supplied road, track and cyclocross and primarily handmade. Mr. Pinarello was born in Catena di Villorb, Italy in 1922. At 15, he began his bicycle building at the factory of Paglianti. When his amateur career soared with success he began his professional career in 1947, age 25.
The Pinarello brand has seen lots of success over the years and will likely continue the trend with the current models that have been released. The Pinarello Montello SLX was the model to spark the long list of victories the brand would see. The model was well-known for its industry leading responsiveness, winning the 1984 Summer Olympics Road Race, Vuelta a España, the Giro d'Italia and numerous stages of the Tour de France.
