What do Eddy Merckx, Johan Museeuw and Sven Nys all have in common? Well other than being World Champions in road and cyclocross as well as winning numerous races between them, they have all ridden Colnago frames. Now you can to! Colnago are offering you a piece of sporting and cycling history with one of their most iconic frames, The Master X-Light Frameset. The 1982 world champs were won by Guiseppe Saronni on board a Master frame and this colourway is named after his victory.

Founded in 1954 by Ernesto Colnago in Italy, the Colnago brand soon became a common sight in the professional peloton. 1970 and Michele Dancelli, riding a Colnago frame, rode to victory in Italy’s biggest one day races, Milan San Remo. This was such a great victory for Colnago that he based his flower like logo, the blooming of a flower, to coincide with Milan San Remo’s spring date. This logo still adorns Colnago frames to this day.

If you want a frame that is a timeless design, a masterpiece in Italian craftsmanship and a celebration of amazing design and the finest paint schemes, the Master X-Light is definitely for you.

A combination of a straight top tube traditional geometry, crafted lugs, high quality steel construction and over sixty years worth of Colnago experience has resulted in the creation of a truly Italian thorough bred.

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, experienced Colnago craftsmen in DT15V steel and chromium plating.

This beautiful frame is offered in four stunning paint schemes, all classic and stylish and meticulously painted to Colnago’s high standards. This also includes a beautiful Saronni inspired design, in honour of the prolific Italian professional cyclist.

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. Yet it is also is keen to accelerate at the 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.
