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.

Stainless steel is an amazing material for bicycle frames. It is light,, durable, has outstanding performance, very comfortable and does not corrode. The Casati Espresso XCR outperforms titanium bikes, has longer life than carbon and has all the attributes of superlight steel. Casati builds the Espresso XCR 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 compromized by too much heat. We have build Espresso XCR bicycles in the sub 15 lb. range and the bicycle performs flawlessly. Espresso XCR 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.

When Casati studied aerodynamic carbon frames they wanted to make it better. To improve the ride of an aero frame and to take away design flaws of the competitors the Dardo was created. Dardo has improved strength, better stability and more comfort than the typical aero road frame. And Dardo is not ordinary! The rectangular top tube improves torsion resistance. The oversize downtube is rigid and aero shape and joined to a press fit bottom bracket shell. The seat tube wraps the rear wheel and the internal cable routing is smartly designed without sharp cable angles that result in poor shifting and braking. Of course Dardo can be built made to measure in full custom geometry and this maximizes the cyclist’s effort putting him in tune with the most efficient frame. Finally Dardo can be built for classic brakes or for disc brakes. Very simply the Casati Dardo is the ultimate speed machine.
