The Grandis bicycle brand was founded in 1930 when Silvino Grandis built his first bicycle. Silvino was quickly becoming an expert in this field and in 1957 he worked as the official mechanic of the 'Veneto A' Team. Whilst working as their official mechanic, Silvino witnessed the victory of his athlete Mina Bariviera in the amateur Giro d'Italia. As Grandis gathered more and more expertise in the cycling sphere, he began to make bikes to sell. Grandis continued to grow as a brand as the cycling technology developed. Today the brand makes both road bikes and mountain bikes.
