Our History

 From 1976... until now

Parentini was established in 1976, when Gianpaolo Parentini – still the CEO – took over the management of his father’s wool and sports jersey business.

Over the years the company developed its experience and expertise in design, printing and the use of technical and experimental fabrics. By 1982 our know-how had taken us to the top step of the World Championships podium with Giuseppe Saronni. Further success came the following year when Saronni won the Giro d’Italia.

Since our first successes the company has grown every season, as we continually improve both our technical expertise and our image in the cycling world. This is due in no small part to the enthusiasm and skill of our staff – some of whom have been with us for more than 25 years – who every day contribute to our achievements.

100% handmade in our Tuscany workshops, appreciated for our superior quality by cycling aficionados worldwide, Parentini products embody exceptional performance in every aspect.
