Inter Milan and Cinelli collaborate on limited edition bikes and kit

This is exactly the type of crossover that we live for

Three-time European Cup-winning footballing giants Inter Milan have collaborated with iconic Italian bicycle brand Cinelli on a new limited edition collaboration and its exactly what you would expect.

This new partnership combines the Nerazzurri half of Milan with the Milan-based Cinelli in a two-part drop which features a limited edition range of cycling kit, accessories and bikes said to celebrate the shared values of design, culture and sport.

The first part, released on the 17th March, is the ‘Made in Milan’ collection and is said to celebrate the industrial city’s heritage and show the football club is ‘capable of thriving in worlds beyond football and forging ever deeper bonds with iconic Milanese brands’.

The launch saw players from Inter’s Under-19 women’s team and men’s ‘Primavera’ youth team combine with the Cinelli racing team on Cinelli’s iconic Vigorelli velodrome in the heart of the city and just a stone’s throw from the San Siro, Inter’s home ground. 

Part of the first drop is a jersey, bib shorts, socks and cap all ‘inspired by the history and art of Milan’ and incorporate ‘visible blue stitching which recall the manufacturing tradition of the city’.

More importantly, however, are the series of bikes. Inter and Cinelli have collaborated on two limited edition Vigorelli track bikes – one in pearl white and one in blue – a Nemo Tig gravel bike and a simply stunning Nemo Tig road bike.



The Nemo Tig Disc road bike has been given an incredibly stunning blue paintjob to reflect Inter’s iconic black and blue striped kit with small design features included as a nod to the club. The bike comes suitably dressed in fully Italian livery – a Campagnolo Super Record EPS groupset, Campagnolo Boraa Ultra WTO. wheels, Cinelli finishing kit and a set of Pirelli P-Zero velo tyres (well who else was going to supply tyre for an Inter Milan bike?).

It costs €11,900 but it’s beautiful and we want one. At least one.

Cinelli and Inter will be unveiling this first drop at Milan-San Remo on Saturday, which departs from Cinelli’s Vigorelli velodrome, and a day ahead of Inter’s Coppa Italia semi-final, second leg against city rivals, AC Milan.

The second round of collaboration is due to launch in June and will feature colour variations on the kit and bikes. Bellissimo.
