With over 30 years of experience in designing and manufacturing bicycles, Avanti has a range of bikes and cycling products suited to all types of riders. At BikeExchange, you can check out the Avanti range from retailers and private sellers around Australia.
Back in 1985, the cycling world was taken by surprise when a small company in New Zealand started developing and producing bikes. They started things off with the 10 Speed Road bike ‘Strada’ series and have been creating unique cycling machines ever since.
As of 2015, Avanti sells bikes throughout New Zealand, Australia and have expanded into Asia and the pacific.
Avanti has been responsible for some fairly unusual builds in their time. In 1987, they took New Zealand by storm, releasing the first mountain bike ever assembled in NZ. The Revolution featured an unusual frame design, with a raised down tube that rain directly into the chain stays with the addition of a smaller tube branching off to connect with the bottom bracket.
In just five years, Avanti made the move over the Tasman Sea to break into the Australian market; an important step on their way to becoming a successful bicycle manufacturer.
Over the years, Avanti bikes have taken Kiwi and Australian athletes to wins on both national and international competitive stages. Most notably in 2004, Hamish Carter and Sarah Ulmer took out Gold at the Athens Olympics, with Bevan Docherty winning Silver.
Avanti has put a lot of time into track racing over the years, advances that are made in track technology, later making their way onto road and triathlon models, trickling down to more affordable options as the technology improves and becomes cheaper to reproduce.
Whether you are heading out on the road, the trails, or you are looking to start competing at your local velodrome, Avanti manufactures a bike that is set up perfectly for the job. Avanti makes a huge range of bikes for all ages groups: from kids bikes to commuters; road bikes to hybrids and BMX.
Avanti no longer produces only bikes. Since the mid-eighties, they have grown to produce a huge range of cycling products including clothing, accessories and helmets. If you so choose, you can pretty much deck yourself out in all Avanti gear.
Sponsoring a number of individual riders and competitive racing teams means that Avanti has the best test subjects for their new technologies, and the best source of feedback leading towards product development. Avanti Racing Team rides out of Tasmania and is one of Australia’s premier cycling teams competing on the UCI world Tours such as the Tour de France and the Giro d’Italia.
