Our founder, Marcello Bergamo created our business in 1977 because he wanted to make professional level cycling kit available to everyone. During his 10 year career as a Professional cyclist, Marcello realised that the kit that he was wearing was not available to the public. The day after he finished his professional cycling career he founded our cycling apparel business with the sole purpose of making the best value for money cycling kit on the planet.
Throughout the years, we have been at the forefront of changes in technology, garment manufacturing and fabrics. Along this 40 plus year journey we have amassed a wealth of knowledge with a long-term workforce centred around our production facilities in Castano Primo, Italy. Many of our team members can recall the time when jerseys were knitted from wool or screen printed and this vast wealth of knowledge is embedded within the artisans in our business and helps us produce garments that our customers truly love to wear. Today, the business is in good hands with the next generation of Bergamo’s running the business, guided by Marcello and Fiorenza.
Comfort and performance is at the heart of our endeavours but we are always reminded of why Marcello started the business in the first place; to make the cycling kit that professionals wear available to everyone; which is why we only sell our retail products direct to the consumer. This allows us to keep our prices fair as we do not have to build in margins for retailers or middle-men and we have the freedom to continue to manufacture to a high standard for a fair price.
Chances are that you have already worn kit that we have manufactured as we produce for some of the biggest cycling brands around but you probably paid 50% more for it than you will pay if you buy direct from us. Sure, we still make for other brands but that also enables us to keep our costs down due to the massive volumes that we manufacture.
So we invite you to test our kit out. We promise you will not be disappointed.
