Cervelo's name comes from the Italian "cervello" for brain and French "velo" for bike, and represents the incredible ingenuity that goes into every Cervelo frame. Always pushing the envelope of what's possible, Cervelo's focus on state-of-the-art materials, top-tech engineering and exceptional aerodynamics has produced some of the lightest, fastest and best-riding bikes available.
Cervelo was founded by Gerard Vroomen and Phil White, two engineers who worked together to design and build a time-trial bike for a top Italian racer. While the cutting-edge machine received excellent reviews, no company was interested in producing it. So, the duo decided to go into business for themselves.
