In 1889 two brothers, Léon and Laurent Vielle, created a 'nickel-plating' business in 1889.
A little later Charles Idoux and Lucien Chanel ventured into the 'manufacture and the sale of spare parts for bicycles' with the brand name MAVIC, Manufacture d’Articles Vélocipédiques Idoux et Chanel.
The common factor between these two businesses was their President, Henry Gormand. Besides for their products, Mavic is worldwide known for their assistance service offered at all major professional races since 1973.
At races, Mavic makes available to all competitors a ‘neutral and free’ assistance.
