Cinelli Celebrates 75th Anniversary with Limited Edition XCR75 Road Bike

To celebrate its 75th Anniversary, Cinelli has unveiled a limited edition version of its XCR road bike aptly called the XCR75, which features Columbus’ venerable XCr stainless steel tubing with exquisite tig welding as one would expect from the vaunted Italian brand. 

“In 2023 Cinelli celebrates its 75th anniversary. We took the opportunity offered by this very special occasion to take a deep dive into our archive and in particular into the story of our founder Cino Cinelli. What we discovered was a uniquely hybrid personality, able to combine a passion for technique and performance developed during his professional career, with an indefatigable need to dream outside of the limits of what already existed with a finely-tuned sense of luxury and taste and extraordinary stubbornness! Our dream became to create a bike that paid homage to this personality and demonstrated how deeply rooted his personality is still today in the brand’s DNA,” says Cinelli.

“The aim with the XCR75 was to design the bike that Cino Cinelli would have designed for himself to race the 1941 Giro d’Italia if he’d had access to the most cutting-edge innovations and materials of contemporary bicycle manufacturing,” adds Cinelli. 

Featuring what Cinelli describes as an “all-road” geometry that takes its cues from Cino Cinelli’s 1950s Supercorsa, the XCR75 is equipped with a SRAM Red eTap AXS groupset, a 1x Ingrid CRS-POP crankset and a Classified wireless internal 2-speed hub gear with a “splash anodized” finish developed especially for Cinelli.

Elsewhere, the limited edition bike is treated to a custom edition of Ron’s Bikes Fab’s Abs handlebar bag, a special Brooks C13 saddle and 32mm René Herse Stampede Pass tires. 

Naturally, things wouldn’t be complete without a special graphics scheme, which includes a mix of iconic logos that give a nod to Cinelli’s 75-year history, set against hand-polished XCr tubing. 

Limited to a run of just 20 bikes, the XCR75 fetches a hefty €14,900 (around $16,500).
