Tifosi quickly earned a reputation from both retailers and consumers and became a brand synonymous with the term ‘Winter Bike’.
After many years of research and testing combined with a passion for grassroots racing, Tifosi is proud to be associated with the pinnacle of Elite British racing, having their first race team, Spirit Bikes, ranked as the number 1 Elite Amateur team in the UK.
Spirit bikes pride themselves not only on winning races, but also on supporting young riders through the early years of their career and guiding them onto the world of Pro racing. An ethos that blends perfectly with everything Tifosi stands for.
In 1977 he resigns as A.L. Columbus president and separates Columbus from the rest to develop bicycle tubing production, giving birth to one of the most famous brand in cycling history.
In the Eighties Colombo takes over Cinelli, a small high end bicycle and components factory founded by Cino Cinelli, a former pro rider between Thirties and Forties, winner of three Giro d’Italia stages (1938, 1939), a Giro di Lombardia (1939) a Milano-Sanremo (1943) and many other races. In 1948 Cino decides to retire from pro cycling to found his own factory that will become a benchmark in the bicycle world. Someone may remember him as a rider, many others remember him as the father the first aluminium handlebars, the first seat with a plastic core, the first pedal straps, the first quick release pedals.
Thanks to many investments, a modern production facility with the latest IT solutions ensuring optimal management of assembly and storage of bicycles was built in Przasnysz, 100km north-east of Warsaw. The following facilities were built from scratch in year 2000: assembly hall (with four assembly lines), welding unit for bicycle frames and forks, rim unit and OMEGA-type water paint shop, which is the most modern in Central and Eastern Europe.
The year 2006 is referred to as a turning point for KROSS brand, the company introduced segmentation of products into groups of bikes: mountain, urban, trekking, children, cross, road bicycles. New design, new quality were applied – better frames, components, materials, and distribution was expanded into specialty stores. KROSS began to compete technologically and visually with the world competition.
The years 2008 – 2012 consisted in a continuous investment in marketing and creating a positive image of Kross on the bicycle market, and in environmental awareness. Growing sales, satisfied customers, as well as work on developing the offer of both specialist and leisure bicycles show that Kross brand is developing in the right direction.

Dr. David T. Hon has always been a tinkerer and cyclist. His urge to fold up “Man’s most ingenious invention” came about when commuting to and from UCLA in the 70s to earn his PhD in physics: every day, he had to remove the wheel of his bike to stuff it into his car parked far away on campus. Years later, after pioneering laser technology with great success at Hughes Research Center, Hon gave up his budding career to finally focus on his vision for “folding green transportation”.
