In 2018 Gios is celebrating 70 years since the creation of the brand (1948-2018).
In 1958, Mr Alfredo Gios started to work in the family city bike business founded ten years earlier by his father Tolmino, who had been an excellent professional cyclist in the late 1930s. His victories led him to be called to be part of the Italian national team that participated in the 1936 Berlin Olympics.
Since then, GIOS became a benchmark in the world of cycling thanks to the great victories achieved under its “BLUE GIOS” colour, including all six seasons of fruitful collaboration with the KELME team in the 1990s.
For 70 years the GIOS company has manufactured racing frames and bikes for top-level professional use, constantly investing in innovation and technology to adapt to the demands of this sport. The “corsa” frames by GIOS are a reference-standard for many champions and for decades they have been used by the top professional teams in the world’s most important races.
Since 2015 GIOS has been the technical partner of the legendary Colombian MANZANA POSTOBÓN team, and 2019 will mark the fourth season of the GIOS-Manzana Postobón sponsorship arrangement.
Today GIOS continues to be a brand recognised worldwide for its know-how and important achievements throughout its 70-year history.
GIOS takes part in the main cycling trade fairs and its worldwide sales and customer service organisation is structured into two subsidiaries: GIOS INTERNATIONAL and GIOS ASIA/PACIFIC.
The new GIOS generation, headed by Luca Gios (Alfredo’s son), works in the development of new strategies adapted to current market demands, thus ensuring that GIOS stays at the peak of global bike brands.
GIOS, the winning blue since 1948!
