2021 Cinelli XCR

Just because you are devoted to the zingy ride that well-made steel frames offer does not mean that you are not interested in having the lightest, most advanced bike possible. The Cinelli XCR is evidence of what a top-of-the-line steel bike can offer in ride quality and racing performance.

Welded from custom drawn Columbus XCR tubing, the Cinelli XCR has been designed to offer a snappy, supple ride that makes steel such a treat, while still keeping the weight down near where a climber would prefer it to be. They can manage that difficult balancing act since the XCR stainless steel tubing is cold drawn and seamless. It’s ultimate tensile strength makes it possible for these steel tubes to have a better stiffness to weight ratio than aluminum or titanium. That allows the frame to use less material to remain light without having to compromise on the rigidity.

The XCR steel’s ability to absorb road vibrations plays a big role in the overall feel of the ride. By preventing tarmac chatter from reaching you and soaking up off-putting bumps, the Cinelli XCR translates your energy into a more snappy ride while helping you avoid feeling overly fatigued or beaten up by the road. The stability offered by the classically Italian geometry will also help give you confidence when descending. The oversized 44mm head tube paired with the 1.5 inch Columbus Futura carbon fork makes this a point and shoot-type of handling experience, so much so you’ll be tempted to test this beauty out in your local crit races.

Hand made in Italy by Columbus steel tubing experts, the Cinelli XCR has a BSA threaded bottom bracket and can accept up to 25mm tires. It is available in five sizes and one beautifully classic looking Cinelli colorway. Modern features like an integrated seat clamp and the ability to customize the frame to build it up with an electric groupset makes the XCR a beautiful frame that both celebrates the history of cycling while opening up the possibility for the most modern options.
