A.C.I is a shelf brand of the Italian family company Alpina
History of the Alpina company:
Alpina was founded in 1926 by Guido Cappellotto in Laorca Lecco, Italy. The company is named Alpina because the founder can see the Alps from the company's windows. In 1935 the company moved to Arcore in Italy, in this region many manufacturers of motorcycles and bicycles developed, such as Moto Guzzi, Gilera and Bianchi. In the 1960s and 1970s, the Italian motorcycle industry suffered strong competition from Japanese motorcycles, so the Alpina company focused on developing the bicycle market. In the 1970s and 1980s the market for motorized two-wheelers was booming, Piaggio, Malaguti, Benelli, Malanca and Atala were some of Alpina's fast-growing customers. Between 1986 and 1993, Alpina moved to Lomagna in Italy, its current site, in order to be close to motorcycle manufacturers. The development of mountain biking opens up new perspectives and opportunities to which Alpina responds. At the start of the 2000s, Alpina changed its strategy, positioning itself as a manufacturer of high-end products meeting new needs. In 2006 Alpina invented the first spoked tubeless wheels for motorcycles.
