It was in the year 1885 when Edoardo Bianchi, then 21 years old, started his enterprise as a bicycle manufacturer in his little shop in Milan, at via Nirone. The deep innovative zeal distinguished him above all the constructors of his era.
He is known as the inventor of the 'Safety' bicycle, having incorporated a chain drive system, which offset pedaling forces, into a two-wheeled cycle. 2015 will mark the 125th anniversary of the company, making it the oldest brand in the cycling industry by far.
Eduardo's innovations and inventions remain the foundation for many still used today, where his ideas have met the technology of the 21st century and been proven to still be the best solutions. Bianchi even invented full-suspension cycling. In 1915, he designed a bike for the Army. It was equipped with wide-section tyres, folding frame and suspensions on both wheels. This original bicycle was consigned to the Royal Light Infantry Corp, the "Bersaglieri", who used it as an off-road vehicle from the Alps to the African deserts: it was the first mountain bike, the ancestor of all the modern versions.
The Bianch label, along with the identifiable celeste green color, has won races all around the globe. The bikes have carried countless riders through all sorts of cycling situtations longer than any other brand. To this day, the lineup of Bianchi bikes is simple and thoughtfully designed to maximize all factors for those who select one. Smart Cycles is happy to represent this classic brand!
