Released in 1984, the Colnago Master became immediately a winning bike. In the same year, Giuseppe Saronni won the Giro d'Italia on a Colnago Master from the Del Tongo team. Since then, this Italian masterpiece of cycling design has been one of the most winning bikes of all time and also one of the most sought after by riders and collectors.
The Colnago Master was meant to be an improvement of the Mexico which had been Colnago's previous top model. Manufactured with Columbus Gilco Design - Profilo S4 tubing with a distinctive crimped section, this tubes were designed by Gilberto Colombo to improve the stiffness and to better withstand mechanical strain. The result is a light, reactive and stiff steel frame with racing pedigree.
