THE COMPANY
Gist
Italia
Gist was set up in 1985 by Gilberto and Stefano
Parolin. Their initiative was inspired by shared
ideas and passions and the same entrepreneurial
mindset. Since both are keen cycling enthusiasts,
once they had made the decision to set up a small
company specializing in the distribution of cycling
accessories, they naturally drew on their sporting
experience. Thanks to Gilberto and Stefano's
intuitive and instant grasp of the real needs
of passionate cyclists, Gist products gained in
popularity and were soon available everywhere
in Italy. The strategic objectives agreed by the cofounders and their ability to generate enthusiasm
for their ideas among all their staff have made
it possible to strengthen and boost Gist's image
on the home market. The brand has now been
further enhanced by the launch of GIST Italia, a
move which signals the company's determination to
conquer international markets.

OUR FORTES
PASSIONATE
For us, cycling is more than a passion, it has been
a philosophy of life pretty much since we were
born. Over the years, this philosophy has assumed
increasing significance within our family and our
lives and has given us a feel for the actual needs
of cyclists.
WELCOMING
Our welcoming attitude has enabled us to build a
team of friendly and passionate specialists who are
good listeners, i.e. attentive to customers’ needs.
RESPONSIVE
Pre- and after-sales support is an absolute priority.
We do our utmost to deliver prompt responses and
solutions because we are committed to providing
dependable support to all our customers.
ENTHUSIASTIC
Enthusiasm is an integral part of every business
decision we make and implement. The support we
offer to local sports activities and events is fuelled
by the conviction that cycling creates an energy
that is contagious and conducive to a better life.
