Now a classic by Casati is the Espresso. All the performance of the finest carbon and titanium bicycles but in tried and proven steel. Columbus supplies their top range Spirit for the Espresso. Spirit is superlight with the perfect blend of rigidity and compliance. Then the Spirit tubing is carefully mitered, tack welded and fillet brazed to perfection. After brazing the joints are painstakingly filed, sanded and polished to an ultra smooth finish. The tubes seamlessly blend into each other and this is where the Casati brothers showcase their work. The ride is even better than the looks as Espresso has a sprint lovers acceleration and climbs with ease. Descending and cornering is a joy as the cyclist feels like one with the bike and the mild mannered handling is an attribute of the material, the workmanship and the famous Casati geometry.

Inox Stainless Steel
Stainless steel is an amazing material for bicycle frames. It is light, durable, has outstanding performance, very comfortable and does not corrode. The Casati Inox outperforms titanium bikes, has longer life than carbon and has all the attributes of superlight steel. Casati builds the Inox in a proven but labor intensive method, fillet braze. They even go a step further by using 40% silver solder. In this way the tubing is not compromised by too much heat. We have built Inox bicycles in the sub 15 lb. range and the bicycle performs flawlessly. Inox is a super quiet ride without the creaking and popping of poorly made carbon bike and has a superior road feel. More rigidity than titanium and all the comfort of steel. This maybe the Holy Grail of bicycles. Fully hand built one at a time we offer several custom features; standard or RS version with the 1 1/8″ x 1 1/2″ head tube. Internal cable routing for mechanical or electronic groups, custom geometry and of course several gorgeous paint finishes.
