Our company was founded in 1976 by the former professional racing cyclist Celestino Vercelli. In the mid-70s, Celestino winds down his professional cycling career after having raced Giro d’Italia seven times, Tour de France twice and many other races, together with great athletes such as Gianni Motta, Eddy Mercks, Felice Gimondi. He decided to combine his passion for cycling with family tradition. His father worked leather and he was a shoemaker, just like his forefathers at the end of the nineteenth century, when shoe manufacturers were proper master craftsmen, able to tailor any kind of footwear. Celestino keeps bringing his experience to the company, he cuts himself fine leather, such as kangaroo leather, used for the Legend shoes and La Tecnica 1976 model. He works along with his son Edoardo, who carries the tradition with an eye to the future, firmly keeping the whole production in Italy. The rest is history so let’s retrace our steps together.

Some of you might know us thanks to Weightweenies and the topic where Jure started to post all his carbon work as a teenager.
As a cyclist Jure started to work on bicycle parts. At the age of 19 he already started his own company, of course after years of different experiments, prototypes,…all that time he was also a cyclist at team Radenska Rog, but later decided to rather study mechanical engineering and invest more time into composite engineering.
CHAPTER2 was created by Michael Pryde inspired by his years of dedication to design and cycling. From the time he started racing BMX as a kid, he has pursued his passion for competitive cycling for almost 4 decades, having raced at the highest level in both DH/XC and Road.
Michael’s story really begins when he studied Industrial Design at college from where he went on to study Architecture in the UK for 6 years. He has worked at a number of prestigious firms, including Foster + Partners and Aedas. It was at Foster + Partners where he was able to experience at first hand the design and creation of one of the world’s largest and technically challenging construction projects in the world- the Hong Kong International Airport.
During his tenure as an Architect Michael also pursued his dream as a semi-professional MTB DH/XC racer competing extensively in South East Asia and North America. It was during this time he picked up road cycling which quickly became his primary pursuit.
After a successful career in Architecture he joined Neil Pryde Limited in 2004, a pioneering sporting goods business his father founded in 1970. At Neil Pryde he experienced the design and development of high-tech sports equipment employing carbon fiber and aerodynamics. NEILPRYDE was the pioneer of composites in windsurfing, superseding the bicycle industry in its use of carbon composites.
Michael established the Bike Division under the brand NEILPRYDE in 2008 where he was fully responsible for Design, R&D and Engineering, employing his design skills to introduce a number of award and race winning bikes. During this period he spent significant time designing and testing frames using CFD and Wind Tunnels, accumulating a wealth of technical know-how. During his tenure at Neil Pryde Limited, Michael was responsible for the company winning the IDSA, Red Dot, IF Awards and Chicago Athenaeum Awards.
