About Us

Tineli was founded in 2005 by Tim and Sandy Vincent. Having spent several years mountain bike racing in Switzerland they knew how good cycling clothing could be, but were disappointed about the quality available Down Under.

Tineli was founded to fill that gap and has quickly grown to become the kit of choice for riders in NZ and Australia. Our dedication to providing the highest quality kits backed up with great designs and customer service is seeing Tineli's reputation growing worldwide as premium suppliers of custom printed and off-the-shelf cycling clothing.
