2017 CINELLI EXPERIENCE – LARGE (56cm) – £1,099
The Experience is a perfect entry-level road bike, the likes of which you won't see out on the road every day.
The Experience features brand new tubing profiles and all new geometry, making the experience just a suitable for road racing as it is for winter training. The conical head tube and oversized fork give absolute steering precision and control.
The Experience is constructed from specially selected Columbus triple butted Airplane tubing, chosen for its lightness, high resistance and stiffness. Its intelligent frame design can accommodate up to a 25mm tyre, making it ideal for riders in search of versatility.
Whether you plan to race on it, train on it in the winter or use it to conquer your first Sportive, the Experience will give you its best performance.
DEDICATED SET UP The combination of components, specifically designed angles and stack/reach ratio make the Experience women tailor made for the ergonomic needs of the female rider.
50 MM OFFSET FORK The XXS and XS sizes feature a new fork with a 50mm offset. This means that these extremely compact framesets can maintain the correct seat tube angles without having problems with toe-overlap, which are usually common in small framesets.
NEW TUBING The Experience’s head tube is now cylindrical and 50mm in diameter. Additionally and the down tube and top tube have been increased in size. These changes, along with the refinements to the geometry, increase the overall stiffness of the frame and improve the handling of the bike.
SMART RACE GEOMETRY The compact semi-sloping geometry is suitable for those seeking all day comfort as well as those looking for a race bike. The tapered headtube 1-1/8' - 1-1/2' adds front-end stiffness. Combine this with the oversize fork and you have a recipe for great control and absolute steering precision.
ZERO TORSION STAYS The oversized down tube and chain stays increase the lateral stiffness of the frame. This greatly increases the rider's pedalling efficiency, meaning no loss of power. Pedal hard on the Experience and it will respond with pure speed! Slender seat stays improve shock absorption and focus power transmission through the chain stays. This reduces the weight of the frame and turns the seat stays into a compliant support structure.
The Smaller sizes of Experience have been engineered around the physical characteristics of the female rider, based on data from an extensive Ansur study of biometric proportions of women’s torso, arm and leg lengths.
