Brand Information(click to expand)
MIFA had recognized the high advertising value of cycling at an early stage and became active despite the high expenditure required for this: from 1924, MIFA maintained a very successful racing team and was in strong competition with Diamant and Opel in particular. In 1925, the swiss Heiri Suter won the Grand Prix Wolber, the precursor of the UCI Road World Championship, on a MIFA bike. From then on, MIFA's best racing bike was called the "championship model". In the post-war years, the racing bike models were more likely to be built by Diamant, the MIFA- bikes could best be described as sports bikes. From the 2000s, racing bikes were again sold under the MIFA logo.
