Nalini was ESTABLISHED in 1970 by former professional cyclist Vincenzo Mantovani, who is best known for winning silver medals for Italy in both the Olympic Games and World Championship events in the 1960s.
Mantovani’s Passion for the sport of cycling runs though the veins Nalini MOA Sport. A glance back through the history of the sport over the last four decades will lead you to an impressive number of professional riders who have worn Nalini MOA in victory. This includes 8 Tour de France, 7 Giro d’Italia, 4 Vuelta, 10 World & 11 Olympic Championship winners - you can see some of these in our Gallery of Champions.
The majority of the employees at Nalini MOA are local people, some having worked at the factory their whole lives. When you wear Nalini, you do so knowing it is made by passionate and dedicated workers, who are able to combine constantly evolving technology, with skills passed down through the generations.
General manager Alessandra Agostini explains the authenticity of the brand “There are not many companies like us. So many people are offering cycling clothing now, people want a brand with history and tradition. We do not have to invent a history, we earned it. We also continue to provide a world class service to World Tour teams every season. Our relationship with pro tour riders is very good. The sponsors and managers like us because we can create the kit they want and their riders are happy… And it’s been that way since MOA began. The priority is that the rider and team are happy with their clothing.”
Working closely with World Tour riders and in constant research, the Nalini MOA lab is always able to conceive high-performing and innovative technical solutions. Feedback from the professionals is always adopted into the final garment production, giving the everyday rider the chance to wear garments of the highest calibre.
