A History of Scapin

Umberto Scapin founded his eponymous brand in 1957, following a highly respectable career as a professional cyclist. From the very beginning, it was his intention to make incredibly unique bicycles, made by hand and finished with a fastidious attention to detail.


Early models from Umberto’s workshop are rare and unusual. Cromovelato paintwork was occasionally used, lugs were highly refined and some models included superb pantographs. Not one, however, was the same. Some were even gold plated, and as far as bicycles are concerned, Scapin created the most precious frames in history.


In a cotemporary context, Scapin is regarded as potentially the most prestigious and flamboyant brand in the Italian bike industry. Both in production and design, Scapin bikes are the choice of only the most obsessive connoisseurs. Nothing has been lost from Umberto’s philosophy; quality, detail and individuality are the cornerstones of modern Scapin bicycles. Craftsmanship, despite modern production methods, remains at the forefront of Scapin products, which are still made in Italy to this day.

Information about Zullo

Zullo is an Italian bike manufacturer founded by Tiziano Zullo. Having competed in both road races and cyclo-cross races as he was growing up, Zullo had developed a keen eye for how bikes should be designed to benefit the rider and their performance. In the early 1970s Zullo himself started to build bicycle frames and his small business began to grow steadily. 

Zullo's success 

In 1985 Zullo created a partnership with TVM, the top Dutch professional team and became then their frame supplier from 1986 to 1992. In 1994 Zullo moved into the production of TIG-welded aluminium bicycles frames. Thie new venture then led to the development and production of combined aluminium and carbon frames. 


Information about Gazelle

Gazelle was founded in 1892 in the Netherlands by Willem Kölling and Rudolf Arentsen. Initially they began importing English bicycles to resell. In 1902 their own production started under the name "Gazelle". They soon became very successful, especially exporting to the Dutch East Indies colony. As well as bicycles, Gazelle also produced motorised bicycles and tricycles, but recently decide to draw their focus back to non-motorised bikes. In 1992 the eight-millionth bicycle was built and for their 100 year jubilee the company was awarded the title "royal".

The expansion of Gazelle

Since it was founded in 1892, Gazelle has become the largest bicycle brand in the Netherlands and has an annual production of 350,000 bikes. Today they manufacture a wide range of high quality city bicycles and leisure bicycles.
