A MODERN TAKE ON A CLASSIC
As a traditional Italian custom-made frame, the Classic inherits more than half a century of Italian racing history. Mr. Formigli, who apprenticed to Cino Cinelli as a young man, loves steel. He loves building frames in the old way: one at a time, each made specifically for the individual customer.
The creation of these exclusive hand made bicycles is done on a small scale, allowing Formigli to painstakingly perfect each detail of every frame. The name Formigli is synonymous with the highest level of excellence and quality. Made 100% in Italy.
Frame Material – Italian SL steel made by Columbus.
Steel Specs – Niobium is a special steel with manganese,chrome, nickel, molybdenum and niobium. Columbus’s special chemical composition, the combined effect of strengthening for precipitation and reducing the alloy grain size are incredibly enhanced compared to standard steels.
Niobium proves more effective than Vanadium as an alloy-strengthening agent. After specific processes of progressive drawing and forming, NIOBIUM undergoes a special heat treatment that gives to the steel its final characteristics. It is a steel designed to provide superior mechanical characteristics and higher resistance to environmental effects than conventional carbon steels.The only serious choice for a competition or top-of-the-line frame, where lightweight and reliability are essential.
Mechanical Characteristics – Rm: 1050÷1250 MPa, Rp0.2 ? 750 MPa, Ap5 >14%.
