Colnago Master X-Light Frameset
What do Eddy Merckx, Johan Museeuw, and Sven Nys all have in common? Well, other than being World Champions in road and cyclocross respectively as well as winning countless races between them, they have all ridden Colnago frames - and now you can follow suit. Colnago are offering you a piece of sporting and cycling history with one of their most iconic frames, The Master X-Light Frameset.
Founded in 1954 by Ernesto Colnago in Italy, the Colnago brand soon became a common sight in the professional peloton. In 1970, Michele Dancelli rode a Colnago frame to victory in Italy’s biggest one day race, Milan-San Remo. This was such a great victory for Colnago that he based his flower-like logo - the Ace of Clubs - on this win, to coincide with Milan San Remo’s spring date. This logo still adorns Colnago frames to this day.
If you want a frame that has a timeless design, is a masterpiece in Italian craftsmanship and boasts the finest paint scheme, the Master X-Light is definitely for you. A combination of a straight top tube traditional geometry, crafted lugs, a high-quality steel construction and over sixty years worth of Colnago experience has resulted in the creation of a truly Italian thoroughbred.
The Master was first created in the mid-1980’s and is a much sought after and admired design that even after over thirty years has not deviated from the original. At the end of the day, a classic does not need to be tampered with. Entirely designed and made by the finest Colnago craftsmen in DT15V steel and chromium plating.
Steel is known to be a comfortable material and with Colnago’s experience, this frame is no different. Providing an engaging ride with all-day comfort, it is also keen to accelerate at the slightest push of the pedal.
Chrome lugs welded to star-shaped tubing create a unique design. To add a finishing touch, the frame is paired with a chrome plated steel Precisa fork, both elegant, strong and in keeping with the frame.
There are no excuses not to find a Master X-Light to suit you as Colnago offer the frame in 16 sizes. Pick up a piece of cycling history and a timeless classic with the Colnago Master X-Light.
