Here’s why steel is still relevant

Steel tubing companies haven’t stopped innovating. Steel’s inherent stiffness lets you build with small, graceful tubing. It’s inherent tensile strength allows for tubing to be butted almost paper-thin. It’s these material attributes, combined with steel’s natural fatigue resistance that produces a frame that feels famously alive beneath you. For aficionados of that feeling we present the answer to a unique prayer: a perfect 21st century race bike, in steel.

The Ristretto tubeset is selected to meet your specific performance requirements from the top-most shelves of the original and lasting names in steel: Reynolds, Dedacciai and Columbus. Engineered to within an inch of its life, the Ristretto bears all the hallmarks of our construction ethos: a dedication to perfection that has made us famous.
