2014 – Bestgrip RS is founded. The Company aims at extending research, development and testing of new products, while continuing to improve the original products, to provide the highest quality and a wider range of products. For these reasons, the Company has invested both in vehicles and a specialised ice rink where safe driving courses called Driving & Learning can be conducted.

The company was founded in 2004 by two brothers, Luca and Remo Maffeis both born in Orezzo, and their passion for the sport of motorcycle Enduro. The Bestgrip Company specializes in the production of studs and the associated installation tools and has managed to establish itself on the international market turning a brilliant idea into a patented product.

The Maffeis brothers’ inspiration came well before they opened the company. They experimented with the product for about six years and then decided to take the entrepreneurial journey. To get to work previously both brothers travelled extensively and realized that it was difficult to get around, especially during the winter in the region, both due to the weather and on the roads. For this reason they decided to invent a product that would help them avoid slipping and sliding on icy roads. At first the brothers Maffeis fabricated each stud manually using a hacksaw, and the first products were very primitive and rudimentary.

With time, seeing that more and more the products improved and developed, they decided to open their own company. The company had only two machines at the beginning: one for the production and the other one for the welding. The range of the products was only two types: one for road use and the other for competition. The market was exclusively Italian. The Maffeis brothers had to support the very high costs both for the machines and also to secure the patents. The Maffeis brothers took care of everything: from the production to sales, to the creation of a small website and had no employees. Slowly they grew until reaching the current staff, with operational base in Gandino and distributors, importers and retailers around the world.
