The Corsa is our new top of the line road bike. Light, modern looking, it definitely turns head! The frame is very rigid in the bottom bracket and headtube areas for a true racing behavior on the road, but at the same time still accessible for a cyclosport type of rider. The small diameter seatstays and the use of a 27.2mm diameter seatpost allow for a good level of confort for that type of bike. The frame accepts mechanical groupsets as well as electronic groupsets; The switch from one to the other is very easy and is done by replacing the corresponding adapters. All of the cables are routed internally for a very clean and high end look. It is available in 7 sizes to fit a maximum of morphologies.

What do you think?
