Meet our speaker - Szymon Kobyliński
Founder of the rock band Blenders in the 90s, which became one of the most popular rock bands in Poland. In their career, the band played over 700 concerts and released four albums, one of which reached gold status.
Parallel to his music career, Szymon was involved in cycling sports, in particular their most extreme variety, which is downhill. He stood on the podium several times in local competitions, he also won first place in one of the editions of the Polish Cup. He decided to turn his passion into a business and in 2001, together with his wife Ania, he founded the 7ANNA company, which began its activity with the distribution of parts from other manufacturers. Today, the company manufactures and distributes high-quality bicycles and private label components in all major European and North American markets. The established extreme image of the „NS Bikes” brand, complemented by the elegance and beauty of „Creme Cycles”, together with the award-winning „Rondo” bikes representing the new face of cycling, create a complete range of premium products in the mountain, city and gravel/road bike market segments.
In his private life, Szymon regularly participates in cycling competitions – a few years ago he even competed in the MTB World Championships in Andorra. He is also a lover of surfing and windsurfing. Recently, he also returned to playing – on his initiative, the Blenders team was reactivated.
