This is how an extraordinary collection of bicycles was born, unanimously considered a marvel of the nascent world cycling industry. The top quality and perfection gave the brand a reputation among cyclists and runners all over the world.

Nowadays the Dei cycles retrace their history between myth and legend, in a refined balance of modern elements, particular chiselled and natural materials. They pass through the time rediscovering themselves in memory.
