Cinelli's XCr blazes through the intersection of the past and the future on its way to something even better. The feathery Columbus XCr Stainless steel tubes from which it takes its name provide an unrivaled ride and impressively low weight. You'll rocket forward with every pedal stroke, yet the XCr still possesses that ethereal ride quality of hand-built steel. The looks are just fine. Laser-etched graphics stand apart from the unique polished finish to turn heads at every stoplight. And it's so much more, handling is classic Cinelli: responsive, agile and confident. That honed European geometry really shines along with Columbus's ultralight Minimal carbon fork to plaster a grin across your face as you sail down the curviest declines.
