CORIMA S.A. was founded in 1973 by Mr Pierre MARTIN and Mr Jean-Marie RIFFARD and is based in Loriol sur Drôme (26) in France. The word CORIMA is taken from COoperation RIffard MArtin.
Its initial activities were mechanical moulding: the making of moulds and models for the foundry, automobile and aeronautics sectors.
In 1988, CORIMA diversified into the production of carbon composite parts and launched its first product for the cycling sector: the “Disc Wheel”. This was followed by many other products... to create a full range of carbon products for cycling.
CORIMA has always worked with cycling professionals on both the track and road racing circuits. Our products have been involved in many prestigious victories and setting of new records around the world and continue to do so with numerous athletes.
Located in the beautiful region of New England, Lalonde Imports is strategically located for distribution of European-made Corima products across North America. The Corima USA delivery from the East Coast to the West Coast as well as to neighboring Canada is fast and efficient. Dealers are already well-established in both the U.S. & Quebec.
Why import another wheel brand to North America? It was an easy decision considering the quality of hand-made Corima wheels. Since 1988, Corima has been the leading cycling wheel expert using patented, specialized carbon technology. In a class by itself, and made for the discriminating cyclist, Corima is not your average Asian carbon rim. Tested on the long and famous descents of the Alps, as well as on the extremely challenging paved roads of Northern France, one ride on our wheels will allow you to discriminate between a subcontracted Asian bicycle wheel and the Corima wheel, made with family-owned engineering and manufacturing technology.
