In the road scene, aluminum has somewhat struggled to find its identity, whereas steel, carbon, and even titanium have always had their strong share of loyal fans. Up until recently, aluminum has been largely used as the foundational material for bikes that aim to achieve a worthy strength-to-weight ratio while keeping the expense far below that of carbon fiber. Today, aluminum is beginning to come into its own, and the Colnago Strada SL is helping it get there.
Through their cutting-edge hydroforming shaping technique, Colnago has been able to meticulously form the tubes in order to achieve a much improved vertical shock absorption and greater torsional stiffness while also reducing weight, kissing the days of excessively unforgiving and lifeless aluminum frames goodbye. To take the Strada SL’s plushness a step further, a carbon bladed fork is used to comply with the frame’s tapered headtube, providing a more controlled ride that knows how to tame the roughness of the road. Supplementing the chic ride quality of the specifically formed tubes and carbon fork is the aggressive, race-based geometry and the all reliable Shimano 105 drivetrain.
Note: Components are subject to change without notice.
NOTE:Colnago bikes feature “Sloping” geometry. Please consider this when selecting a size. Riders will typically need to choose a frame 2 sizes smaller than a traditional frame. For personal help with sizing your new Colnago, give our Gear Advisors a call (888) 880-3811.
