Italian cycle brand Colnago opens store in Abu Dhabi


October 24, 2022 | By RetailME Bureau

Italian cycle brand Colnago has opened a store in Abu Dhabi at Al Hudayriyat Island. The move comes two years after the Colnago was acquired by Chimera Investments, a private equity company based in the UAE capital. With this flagship store starts Colnago’s expansion in the Middle East.

The store – which includes a bespoke fitting centre, a range of bicycles and accessories, a café and restaurant – is also part of Colnago’s long-term strategy to support Abu Dhabi’s Economic Vision 2030 in promoting fitness and wellbeing.

Combining hospitality, advanced technology and Colnago’s Italian heritage the store is operated by Wolfi’s in partnership with Colnago as the sole distributor of the bicycles in the region. Including technology to design your very own Colnago bike, exclusive art installations and heritage cycles, the location serves both amateur and professional riders within the emirate’s growing local cycling community.

Commenting on the new store opening Colnago CEO Nicola Rosin said, “As an organisation that prides itself in creating superior experiences through expertly crafted bicycles, the launch of our new store in Abu Dhabi represents another significant milestone in our journey at Colnago as we continue to build the brand worldwide.”

“Colnago is more than a bicycle brand and this store has been carefully planned and designed to showcase the best of Colnago’s products and our rich heritage that we are proud of while offering distinctive hospitality experiences. We hope having this physical space in a city that is growing rapidly will help meet the needs of cycling enthusiasts in Abu Dhabi, enabling them to experience first-hand the products that have made us the ace of cycling.”

“We are really pleased that Colnago has now opened its new store in Abu Dhabi as it means riders of all levels can experience these incredible bikes which offer superior performance. We think it shows the commitment and desire Colnago has in playing a central role to inspire people to cycle and be more active,” Mauro Gianetti, Team Principal and CEO of UAE Team Emirates.

Colnago supplies frames for professional teams UAE Team Emirates and UAE Team ADQ, the first UAE’s women’s World Tour side. Its road cycling bikes have contributed to 62 world championships and more than 3,000 victories to date.
