Road Rocket is our most pristine high-grade steel frameset, and we are really proud of it! Made of a mix of Columbus MAX, SPIRIT and SPIRIT KEIRIN tubing is 250 grams heavier than a carbon frame (Columbus MAX chain stays and down tube, Spirit seat tube and head tube and a skinny Spirit Keirin top tube & seat stays). It is paired with a Columbus full carbon fork and frameset weights 2.05 kilos (including fork)!
The Spirit tubing is known as the lightest tubing in the Columbus range. The MAX tubing used is famed for its stiffness when you put the power down. The down tube has an oval shape which hugs the head tube vertically and hugs the bottom bracket horizontally, matched with colossal chain stays, the result is a speed machine with minimal bb and head tube flex. The Road Rocket is a credible contender against titanium and carbon frames with all the comfort and durability steel brings.
