Italy’s most winning Gran Fondo frame for the last 3 years (including 2010 National Men’s title) and designed specifically for this type of racing: light, comfortable and incredibly ride-able. Remains our lightest frame (860g size M painted), much loved simple racing design. This year performance is tweaked with new straight-blade fork, the Columbus Solida, designed for direct fast steering. The fork utilizes aerodynamic sections and comfort-proven bowed legs. Key area is the fork’s ultra-robust arched “head” which has a lateral section of 56mm which creates point of inertia for optimal compromise between responsiveness and comfort for the frame’s intended usage. Round slim-line 14mm diameter seatstays for endurance comfort.
