Alan was founded on 1972 by eng. Falconi Lodovico and the name was originated by the names of his sons Alberto (AL) and Annamaria (AN).
Alan began producing racing bike frames in 1972 with the first frames being available in aluminum.
The frames were constructed with a unique method by bonding tubes and lugs using a special glue which originated from the aeronautical industry.
This method has become a distinguishing factor for Alan, well noted by the high level frames developed and tested throughout racing over the years which has permitted to create innovative and yet functional solutions by combining diverse materials which are normally prohibitive using traditional welding methods.
