Colnago Strada SL
An aluminum frame with advanced technical characteristics, the Strada SL has been designed to provide enthusiasts an outstanding entry-level introduction to the world of road racing, without sacrificing qualities considered essential by Colnago. The tubes of the Strada’s front triangle are made via hydroforming. They all have a specific design, and the tubes are oversized and polygonal in section. The seat tube has a round shape at the top, which becomes rectangular at the bottom bracket to provide greater stiffness. Also, the top tube is formed so that it is flat at the head tube and becomes gradually conical at the seat tube. In summary, this offers the best vertical shock absorption and greater torsional stiffness. Other features that make the Strada SL so appealing include the 1 1/4” – 1 1/8” tapered C -HS1 headset, the alloy steerer/carbon blade fork, and external cable routing – both for the brakes and the two derailleurs. The Strada SL is available as a frameset, or a complete bike, in eight sloping sizes: 42s, 45s, 48s, 50s, 52s, 54s, 56s, and 58s.
AVAILABLE FRAME COLORS
Colnago production process implies intensive use of prototyping technologies. Before realising the final model, we analyse specifications and different variables through samples and lab tests.
Sizes and specifications help you to choose the correct frame. More information on bike detail.
This frame is approved by the International Cycling Union and therefore used in all races recognized by the UCI.
The perfect bicycle must be balanced. It must be made to fit you, not the other way round.
Colnago was the first frame builder to see the potential of carbon fibre in the evolution of the cycling.
