Why you'll love it
A sporty all-rounder, the Fratello has been our number one frame for over a decade. Our new disc version features 12mm thru-axles at the front and rear, and flat mount disc brake mounts. In its creation, we focused on bringing a dynamic ride quality to the frame so you can get up to speed quickly through town as well as clocking new KOMs on long rides.
The Fratello is the king of versatility, making it the go-to frame for riding across all type of paved terrain. If you don't have space for a stable of bikes but want lightweight performance and the unique comfort of steel. Our new 12mm thru-axles stiffen the frame, creating a responsive feel when you accelerate or climb out of the saddle.
We build the Fratello with lightweight, custom-shaped Columbus Spirit tubing. This responsive triple-butted steel is lively and exciting to ride, whatever the weather.

Compliance is confidence
We balance premium Columbus Spirit triple-butted tubing with a tried and tested ride geometry. The length of the chainstays puts the rear wheel under the rider to keep handling nimble and acceleration lively, without compromising control.
Get the grip and comfort benefits of 32mm wide tyres, and ride confidently on taxing surfaces and in difficult weather without having to forgo full mudguards. Fit a rack and increase your carrying capacity.

Our Smart Cabling system makes the frame compatible with all groupsets, whether it's mechanical or electronic. Never worry about messy cabling or redundant frame holes again. The new Fratello Thru-Axle fork has internal routing for dynamo cabling, too. Learn more about Smart Cabling
