It’s the only one in existence…at least for now. We gave legendary Masi frame painter Jim Allen carte blanche to paint one of these USA-made Gran Criterium Legacy frames whatever color he wanted. It’s tough to see in the photos, but this metal flake black looks other-worldly outside in the light. If you ride a 56cm and want to own a piece of history, this beauty is ready for purchase
When we drew up a wish list for the creation of a modern, USA Made, steel Gran Criterium, we fully understood the size and magnitude of the task.
The challenge of producing a performance driven package - a package that would excite riders of all ages and abilities - led us to the belief that this frame should point forwards, and become a statement of our intent. Utilizing custom drawn, Italian made Columbus Life tubing and paired with ENVE's Road 2.0, tapered, composite fork, this package is light, rigid and responsive, regardless of conditions or fare. The Gran Criterium is a thoroughbred steel racer, born from the spirit, vision and reputation of our founder; Faliero Masi.
Made from Columbus Life custom drawn tube sets, manufactured and sourced directly from Columbus, Milan.
