During our development process and the creation of Fons, we were inspired by many women in the cycling world and beyond but one woman stood out from the crowd: Alfonsina Strada!
In 1924 Alfonsina Strada was the only woman among a crowd of men at the start of the Giro d’Italia. In this era, women weren’t even allowed to bare their knees let alone wear cycle shorts! Alfonsina couldn’t be stopped by anyone to get on her bike and therefore became the first and only woman to ride the Giro d’Italia. Alfonsina was a very strong lady who was a trailblazer for women’s cycling. We, at Fons, find this piece of cycling history so inspiring that we decided to name our brand as a tribute to Alfonsina.
Why should you be limited in your passion these days? Fons represents Empowering Women – Choose what you would like to emanate and choose the road bike that suits you! Our Fons is the ideal road bike for women. Choose your own path!
