In the world of cycling De Marchi is synonymous with tradition. If you think of vintage bicycle, the so-called heroic cycling, you can't help but think of De Marchi, the brand has dressed the greatest champions in the history of international cycling.
Born in 1906, Emilio De Marchi was the founder of the homonym "maglificio sportivo" and a pioneer of cycling. Friend of legendary athletes such as Ottavio Bottecchia, Gino Bartali, Louison Bobet and many others, began his career in the late 1920s as a bike mechanic and motorcycles and then work with the top professional teams of the era and start a few months after the end of World War II, production of the first leaders who contributed to the creation of a real standard bicycle clothingbefore then, it was generically "Sportsman". Only three factories at the time used these garments in Italy. The growing economic prosperity together with the spread of sport contribute to the rapid success of the Maglificio Sportivo and in short order the jerseys "De Marchi" are worn by legendary champions like Bottecchia, Magni, Bartali and Coppi, Bobet.
When after twenty years of great successes and satisfactions, De Marchi decides to withdraw from the activity, are his daughter, Elda and her husband Ezio Coccia to detect the company. Shoulder to shoulder with his father-in-law, Coccia selects chamois leathers softer to be applied to the bottoms of his pants and works at the technical development of products. Under his leadership the vertically integrated production, now, continues with the same attitude of yore: respond to the individual needs of the rider. It is said that the same Moser, for the Milan stage of Giro del ' 68, has demanded at all costs a couple of shorts De Marchi, due to their comfort. Mauro and Stefano, sons of Ezio and Elda, are proponents of the undisputed success of the last twenty years, both technical and commercial terms. With the exception of anatomic gel bottoms shaped "Crescent", exclusive shorts solution De Marchi, many of their technological innovations were adopted at international level: the first seamless trousers, the elastic bottoms, the introduction of sublimation (borrowed from swimming), straps or superanatomici cuts. High performance, comfort and simplicity of design have allowed the brand to be appreciated as much by the amateur from the professional cyclist. Suffice it to say that only in the last 15 years have 38 the world titles won by athletes dressed as De Marchi.
