Our history

History and dedication of a family run business. GIMOTO is tradition: over a century ago, back in 1890, the Mazzola family started their business right in the city center of Milan, specializing in the manufacturing and production of leather gloves and clothing.

Since the early 1900s the family business took part in the most important international exhibitions and received numerous awards from Italian authorities as well. Then in the late 1900s the passion for the two wheeled world hit the ownership and the company started manufacturing motorcycle clothing for prestigious brands.

In 1978 Gilberto Mazzola refounded the company and its manufacturing creating GIMOTO as we know it today, in a very short time the company become one of the leading manufacturers of motorcycle clothing in the country.

Today, the sons of Gilberto, Andrea and Daniele continue in their father footsteps, introducing important changes both on a commercial and technical level, in order to bring GIMOTO on the lead in international grounds for the supply, production, research & development of new technologies, to improve the safety of all motorcyclists. Always thankful of the collaboration with the most important motorcycle brands in the world like KTM, Husqvarna, Aprilia, BMW Motorrad, Kawasaki.
