Torelli Nitro Express Frame


The Nitro Express is a flat out steel racing machine. It is built with Columbus' top end Niobium Spirit tubing. The primary tubes for triple butted Spirit tubing are drawn to 0.5 mm on the ends down to 0.38 mm in the center of the tubes. This gives an extremely lightweight steel frame that is both stiff and comfortable. The Niobium alloy used with Spirit increases the frames resistance to environmental elements.

The Nitro Express sports an 1 1/8″ headtube.

The Torelli Nitro Express is built from Columbus Spirit triple-butted steel tubes. The top tube and down tube are drawn from 0.5 mm down to 0.38 mm wall thickness. The tubing makes for an extremely light and quick frame. The Niobium gives the frame advanced corrosion resistance.

The Nitro Express is designed with classic road racing geometry in mind.
