The Colnago Master X Light 2011 Road Bike Frameset was first produced in the mid-1980's and is still proving to be a perennial favourite, as popular now as it has ever been. Made in Italy with DT15V steel, the Master X Light is Colnago's most traditional frame and is the fruit of Ernesto Colnago's extensive experience in welding and using lugs. The Master offers supreme comfort thanks to steel's springy responsiveness, but the beauty of this bicycle is in its details: the star-shaped tubes and chromed lugs, making it a classic elegant bicycle. There is no one perfect material for a bicycle frame. All have advantages and disadvantages. A strong material might be very light, but fatigue too quickly for the repeated stresses of cycling. Or it might be simply too expensive for some riders' budget. At Colnago they use a range of materials to balance these factors. The first Colnago bicycles were made from steel and so steel is still close to their heart. The Master X-Light's Columbus DT15V tubing gets it strength from chromium, molybdenum and vanadium alloying elements and is butted and shaped to their exact specifications.
All sizes also available in Orange, Blue and White
