Blisteringly fast.

The Bike


Developed and tested on the Col D’Izoard, just down the road from our workshop this is a custom steel road bike, designed for going fast. 

A modern road racer, designed for the Alps, built by hand and machine - the old fashioned way - in our Italian factory.

Short wheel base, tight rear end, low bottom bracket, low front end, steep head angle. 


The front triangle is built from Columbus HSS lightweight steel, TIG-welded for strength. Rear end is all lightweight, Columbus Spirit. The drop outs are full stainless steel.

The tapered 1.5” carbon steerer of the new Columbus Futura fork, sits inside our oversize 44mm head tube, with the ubiquitous but beautiful Chris King headset as standard fitment.


Our oversize BB shell provides a stiff platform and big weld area for the high profile HSS downtube. A machined aluminium insert means we get the benefits of BB30, in an even larger shell, without the creaks. 

Rim brakes for simplicity, integrated seat clamp, twin bottle bosses and internal routing finish our first production custom road bike.


We made this bike for going fast on our favourite hills.
