Cinelli x Tigran Avetisyan

By | News, True Stories | No Comments

Cinelli mission has always been to look beyond the present, to reinvent the bicycle and make cyclists’ life better. Design principles are applied to all Cinelli products. Design is not just looks. Design means shape, first project, outline, technology, technique, materials, innovation, creativeness, function, quality, uniqueness, know-how, emotion. We want every product to have an Idea, since, if it is a copy, it cannot be Cinelli.
Today we express this Idea in the collaboration with Tigran Avetisyan, a Russian designer who studied at Central Saint Martins fashion school in London and had his final collection fully sponsored by LVMH.
Tigran is part of Wingedstore Cinelli Art program and his first cap will be online soon.
The designer’s stylistic and performing avant-garde has been developed in a streetwear collection with Cinelli and Columbus logos and will be sold through fashion distribution channels. The complete collection will be presented Sunday, January 12, 2020 from 6.00pm.
During the event, Tigran will do a live painting performance on a Vigorelli Shark with lenticular wheels kindly provided by Vision.

You are all invited!

Oman Expedition

By | News | No Comments

Almost a year ago, two runners and friends, Omar Mohamed Alì and Davide Ugolini, decided to realize their dream of crossing the  Rub’ al-Khali desert in Oman, from Muscat to Salalah. The guys were well trained and used to extreme challenges, nonetheless, the effort was intense:  in 16 days Omar and Davide covered 1900 km both riding and running, overcoming their mental and physical limits. In this extraordinary adventure, they discovered a pristine landscape, a country unknown to most. In such a hard challenging journey, they did not discover just Oman, they discovered themselves as well. Their weapon of choice could not be other than the Hobo Geo, born for the pioneers and the great transcontinental crossing.
